Some of the top sprayer manufacturers, plus leading chemical manufacturers like BASF and Syngenta, are partnering with Hypro in developing spray boom components to meet the demands of today’s precision spraying.
There is a certain amount of pressure lost when liquid flows through any spray component. This is "pressure drop". Hypro ProFlo nozzle bodies have the lowest pressure drop at any given flow in the industry, for instance 2.6 gpm with 5 psi pressure drop. This adds to system efficiency and supports faster field speeds. Other ProFlo features:
Single, 3, and 5 way nozzle bodies for wet and dry booms
Diaphragm check valves in EPDM or Viton
Reliable turret index provides positive shutoff between positions
Full line of nozzle body accessories (caps, barbs, adapters, clamps, etc.)
Express End Caps and Fittings
Air gets trapped in booms and causes the nozzle to actuate non-uniformly, resulting in under/over spraying of targets. Hypro’s unique Express End Caps and Fittings, designed for 1-inch stainless tubes, permit all the air to leave the boom, allowing uniform spraying. Clean-out ports eliminate “dead ends” on booms that accumulate unwanted chemicals.
Hypro has a full line of agricultural spray tips including fan, cone, flooding, plastic, ceramic, and a broad range of flow rates. Only Hypro offers:
- Ultra Lo-Drift tips. The ULD, with an air induction fan spray, provides the best combination of drift control and coverage in the industry.
- GuardianAir Twin. The GAT, with forward and rear air induction fans, is the best choice for high coverage targets and complex canopies.
- The industry’s best spray tip selection tool. To use the SprayIT calculator, enter your spray parameters and Hypro will show you the available tip options.
- The industry’s best mobile app for spray tips. From your mobile device enter your spray parameters and the chemical name and Hypro will show you the available tip options. Find it here on iTunes and here on Google Play. You can also access the recommended spray quality for many popular ag chemicals andmatch the droplet size to Hypro spray tips.
