Which types of spray nozzles are available?

There are different types of spray nozzles available for different use. It’s important to choose the right nozzle to get the best result because spray nozzles determine the volume, drop size and spray pattern. In this topic we will discuss different kinds of spray nozzles: Split top nozzle, Swirl nozzle and Floodjet nozzle.

Split top nozzles

Split top spray nozzles provide a ellipse way of spraying and is used with low pressure spraying. These nozzles are suitable for almost every application. There are different types of Split top nozzles:
  • Basic Split top spray nozzle: this is the most common version. This spray nozzle is a relatively small drop en provides a uniform distribution of the spraying agent.
  • Venturi spray nozzle: this spray nozzle provides bigger nozzles and they are filled with air. When the drops touch the crop they splash into smaller drops. This creates a better coverage on the crop.

Swirl nozzles

Swirl spray nozzles give cone way of spraying and are used with high pressure spraying. These nozzles produce fine drops, but because of the way of spraying they are less suitable to attach on a spray boom. There are different kinds of Swirl spray nozzels:
  • Swirl spray nozzle with hollow cone: this spray nozzle provides smal drops in a circle on the edge of the cone pattern.
  • Swirl spray nozzle with full cone: this spray nozzle produces big nozzles in a circle.
