ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the advantages of twin fluid spraying. All the features of twin fluid spraying, which is available in the form of the Cleanacres Airtec and TeeJet AirJet designs, are achieved by mixing compressed air and atomised liquid in a purpose-designed nozzle. This produces a more defined droplet size than a conventional flat fan tip and this, together with the fact that the larger droplets tend to collapse upon impact with a leaf surface because they contain tiny bubbles, generally results in better coverage.
