A new spray nozzle body end cap from Hypro will decrease response times to GPS signals. Hypro’s Express cap enables standard nozzle bodies to more quickly respond to GPS boom shut-off control signals. The quick reaction time is important to prevent spray overlaps on end rows and in boundary areas.
Hypro achieved the quick response time by eliminating the air that gets trapped with a conventional boom design. When the boom is completely filled with liquid, the nozzle body’s diaphragm check valve activation time is improved by as much as 85%, according to Hypro.
Another advantage of the Express nozzle body end caps is that the pipe ends at the last nozzle body, which reduces pipe material by 10% and creates a clean look. In addition, Express nozzle body end caps eliminate the dead end of pipes where chemical residue and air build up. An optional removable end plug will allow easy access for boom cleanout to flush debris from the boom pipe.
The Express nozzle body end cap is currently available for 1-in. nominal pipe (1.315-in. OD). To receive more information about the new Express nozzle body end cap, contact Hypro at 800/424-9776 or visit www.hypropumps.com .
