A comparative evaluation of a fan-assisted spinning-disc ULV sprayer and a mistblower with ULV attachment



A comparative evaluation of a fan-assisted spinning-disc ULV sprayer and a mistblower with ULV attachment



Monograph, British Crop Protection Council: 283-290



Tests comparing noise levels, air-blast velocities, air-blast cone widths, droplet sizes, distribution and spray recovery, are described for two petrol-engined ULV sprayers used in horticulture. One is a purpose-built hand-held spinning-disc sprayer with axial fan; the other is a standard back-mounted knapsack mist-blower with optional conversion for ULV spraying.
