High Pressure Full Ceramic - TDCFFC
All purpose air injection nozzle with high quality long life ceramic metering orifice. Allows high pressure for best coverage without drift problems.
40 - 150 psi Overall pressure range
40 - 120 psi Optimal pressure range
Polyacetal Venturi body with alumina ceramic metering orifice, ceramic exit tip and poly cap, EPDM seat gasket.
The original air injection nozzle with full ceramic for long life.
TurboDrop® High Pressure Full Ceramic Nozzle (TDCFFC)
|Reduced Drift||TurboDrop® eliminates the long vapor trails behind field sprayers and allows spraying in wind speeds twice that of conventional nozzles. Always follow label instructions for plant protection chemicals.|
|Better Penetration||The higher speed and larger size of the particles insure better penetration depth into the crop canopy.|
|Lower Water Usage||Because air as well as water is used as a carrier, reductions in water usage are possible. Always follow label instructions for plant protection chemicals.|
|Reduced Run-Off||The air-filled drops of the TurboDrop® tend to spread out on the plant surface rather than bounce off.|
|Greater Useful Pressure Range||TurboDrop® TDCFFC nozzles are designed for operating at pressures of 40-150psi, without drift problems and without high wear.|
|Improved Coverage||The air-filled drops collapse on contact and wet a greater leaf surface.|
|Reduced Nozzle Clogging||Because the metering orifice is round instead of elliptical, potential for clogging is reduced.|
|Higher Driving Speeds||Larger drop size and higher velocity make it possible to operate at higher speeds and cover greater acreage more effectively.|
|Retrofit Capability||TurboDrop® nozzles and venturis fit wherever standard nozzles are installed.|
|Highest Wear-Resistance||The ceramic metering orifice, which is ten times harder than stainless steel, provides long-term accuracy and reduced tip wear.|
The TurboDrop® nozzle was originally designed in 1993 as a high pressure nozzle for improving penetration and coverage with contact chemicals. By producing larger, air filled droplets at high pressure; droplet velocity is maintained to allow for maximum canopy penetration. The air inside the droplet causes them to expand or even explode on contact for maximum coverage. (The TurboDrop® XL was introduced in 1998 to allow for slightly lower operating pressures.)
