Item #: TADF03 - The TurboDrop® DualFan Venturi nozzle utilizes a patented stabilization chamber and pulsation dampener which result in even mixing of air with the spray liquid, and a tighter, more uniform droplet spectrum for a unique combination of drift control and coverage and is ISO color coded for flow rate. The pattern tip or combination of tips should be double the flow of the Venturi. The Venturi (or injector) meters the flow and injects air into the spray fluid. This spray tip is designed to improve coverage with certain canopy types, or even help target smaller, just emerging weeds.
The TurboDrop DualFan (TADF) can be used in a variety of applications, from burndown with glyphosate to contact herbicides like Ignite. The TADF may improve coverage with certain canopy types, or even help target smaller, just emerging weeds.
By creating the proper droplet size at high pressure, the TurboDrop DualFan provides the velocity required to deliver the air-filled droplets deep into the plant canopy, and the backside coverage required for complex targets. At 30-70 psi, most sizes of the TurboDrop DualFan will deliver the optimal droplet size for glyphosate, with excellent drift control. At 60 or 70 psi up to 120 psi, with sizes 03 to 08, the droplet size is ideal for Ignite.
One size will often fit a variety of applications. For example, the 04 TurboDrop® DualFan will deliver glyphosate at 10gpa at 11-15mph between 35 and 65psi. For 15gpa fungicides, or other contact pesticides, this same nozzle could be operated at 11-13mph at roughly 80-110psi. Sprayer speed could be reduced a couple of miles per hour (9-10mph) to deliver 20gpa at 90-110psi.
To maximize coverage, TADF nozzles may be alternated on the boom to provide four angles of spray orientation into the canopy, effectively spraying the target four times in one pass. Pressure Range: 30-120 psi Recommeded Boom Height: 18-36” (with 20” nozzle spacing). Materials of Construction: Polyacetyl, EPDM, Ceramic (TDCXL/TACDF/TDVC).
