Note
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of sprayer output, tank fill level, and the presence of a surfactant on the flow rates of top, middle, and bottom groups of nozzles/atomizers used on tower sprayers. Air-blast and air-curtain sprayers were operated at low, medium, and high outputs. While all atomizers were running simultaneously, the flow rates of nozzle/atomizer groups were measured at different tank fill levels. Includes references
