What do TeeJet nozzle numbers mean?

What do TeeJet nozzle numbers mean?

These numbers refer to the flow rate in US gallons at the rated pressure of 40 PSI (approx. 3 BAR). For example, an 02 Nozzle is rated at 0.2 US gallons per hour at a pressure of 40 PSI.

How do I choose a sprayer nozzle?

Steps to select the proper nozzle size:

  1. Select the application rate in gallons per acre (gpa).
  2. Select a practical and safe ground speed in miles per hour (mph).
  3. Determine the spray width per nozzle (W).
  4. Determine the flow rate (gpm) required from each nozzle by using the following equation:

What are the different types of nozzles used in the sprayers?

Nozzle types commonly used in low-pressure agricultural sprayers include flat-fan, flood, raindrop, hollow-cone, full-cone, and others. Special features, or subtypes such as “extended range,” are available for some nozzle types.

Which type of nozzle is used for insecticide spray?

fan nozzle
The most common type of nozzle used in agriculture is the fan nozzle. A fan nozzle is widely used for spraying pesticides — both banding (over and between rows) and broadcast applications. These nozzles produce a tapered-edge, flat-fan spray pattern (Figure 2).

What are the different types of teejet nozzles?

This could include combined fertilizer/pesticide applications, foliar feeding or broadcast liquid fertilization of bare ground. For these applications TeeJet Technologies offers a wide variety of low drift, flat spray nozzles. When selecting a specific capacity tip for liquid fertilizer application, always correct for liquid density.

How big is a droplet from a spray nozzle?

A nozzle’s spray pattern is made up of many droplets of varying sizes. Droplet size is the diameter of an individual spray droplet and measured in microns (micrometers) often notated with the symbol µ. One micron equals 0.001 mm (0.0000394″);herere5,400icronsnnench.

How to determine the correct nozzle size for nitrogen?

Desired application rate is 20 GPA of 28% Nitrogen. Determine the correct nozzle size as follows: The applicator should choose a nozzle size that will supply 22.6 GPA of water at the desired pressure.

What kind of nozzles do you use for liquid fertilizer?

For these applications TeeJet Technologies offers a wide variety of low drift, flat spray nozzles. When selecting a specific capacity tip for liquid fertilizer application, always correct for liquid density. Application charts shown in this catalog are based on spraying water.
