The Air Nozzles, spaced every 10" along the air boom, atomizes the spray droplets using Dial-A-Drop™ technology. This creates the optimum-sized droplets that are not affected by speed and pressure changes, ensuring a uniform application over the entire field.
The Air Nozzle blasts the spray droplets deep into the crop canopy, ensuring complete top-to-bottom leaf surface coverage. No other application technology can measure up to the total plant coverage from the Spray-Air nozzle.
Because of the smaller controlled droplets and directed air blast, the Air Nozzle allows for a very efficient use of water, often in the range of 2 to 5 gallons per acre for herbicides, and generally from 5 to 10 GPA with fungicides.
Droplet Size Management
Follow the ASAE Droplet Classification Standard with Dial-A-Drop™ technology.
Benefits of using Spray-Air technology*
Maximize Productivity. The superior plant coverage from the use of the Air Shear Nozzle enables you to use only the minimum amount of herbicide required, and no more.
Lowest Water Volumes. Use the lowest possible carrier volumes for herbicide, desiccant, insecticide, and especially fungicide applications. Spray from 2 to 10 gallons per acre.
Fungicide Applications That Work. Simply stated, the Spray-Air technology is proven to be the best method to apply fungicides for superior disease control! Benefit from dense canopy penetration and total plant coverage with often only 5 to 10 gallons of water per acre!
Application Versatility. Three application methods to choose from
Spray-Air Air Nozzle application to maximize coverage and efficiency
Conventional flat fan nozzles for higher volume applications over 10 gallons per acre
Use conventional nozzles + air blast from the Air Nozzle for classic Air Assist to maximize coverage in higher volume applications
Environmental Stewardship. Spray-Air owners practice environmental stewardship by using only as much chemical and water as required, reducing soil and water carryover of crop protection products.
Return on Investment. Operator surveys show $6 to $10 per acre in application cost savings
