Hypro’s Spray Nozzle Selection Simplified

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Oct 15, 2014

We’re always looking for ways to make spray nozzle selection easier and we’ve shared some tips of the trade in past posts right here on our blog. With new advances in technology and an ever-evolving line-up of options, we couldn’t resist sharing this Spray Nozzle Selection Guide and helpful information from our friends at Hypro.

Consider this. When selecting nozzles it’s easy to determine what droplet and flow rate you need, but what happens when the chemical you are spraying changes? Does that change the nozzle you should be using?

Hypro has developed a simple set of tools that will help steer you to the correct nozzle technology while considering multiple tank mix characteristics. The Spray Nozzle Selection Guide will walk you through a series of questions to identify the correct nozzle, including:

  • What and when are you spraying?
  • Are you using an adjuvant, and if so, what type?
  • In your chemical Contact or Systemic?
  • Is your primary concern drift or coverage?

From there you’ll determine which of six nozzles are best for your application. Choices include Hi-Flow and ESI Six Stream, which are best for Fertilizer Plant Nutrients. Those spraying Herbicides and doing Weed Control would be served best with the Ultra Lo-Drift, Guardian or GuardianAir nozzle types, according to the guide. Rounding out the bunch are the Insecticide/Fungicide Plant Health needs that are best suited by using the Guardian, GuardianAir or GuardianAir Twin nozzles.

Interested in more? Hypro’s Spray Tip Guide digs further into the subject, providing technical details to support your selection. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Why different nozzles should be used when changing what you spray
  • How do adjuvants effect nozzle selection
  • When does using a Contact or Systemic chemical change your nozzle selection
If you still have questions regarding what spray nozzle you should use, contact one of Sprayer Depot's knowledgeable Customer Service Technicians.

5 Things You Can Do to Get Your Sprayer Ready for Spring

Posted by Marketing Manager on Fri, Mar 08, 2013

Is your sprayer ready to rock-and roll?  Now's the time to make sure all your spray equipement is in top condition.  Precision is key, especially when considering that many of today's pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are more concentrated formulas than in the past, therefore requiring precise application. Do these 5 things to ensure your sprayer is in tip-top condition:

  1. Clean spray nozzles (you can use an air compressor to clean out the gunk), check their flow rates, and replace any that are spraying more than 10 percent of the original output

  2. Clean the sprayer tank thoroughly and make sure nozzle filters are clean

  3. Check the agitator in the tank to make sure it’s working properly pull behind sprayer

  4. Run water through the spray system to make sure everything is working properly

  5. Check your tires to make sure they are inflated to the manufacturer's specifications

It's also a good idea to stock up on parts and accessories, so that down-time is reduced if a repair is needed during the season. Don't forget the spray hose!
