Spray Boom Performance

Spray Boom Performance

Stepan-Spray-System_500x350The CIPAC methods used to test products are generally designed for European conditions and may not adequately simulate Australian and New Zealand conditions. In addition to the traditional tests we can test how products perform when making the arduous passage through spray pumps, booms and nozzles.

Laboratory Spray System Simulator
We have a Stepan Spray Tank Simulator, it has a 10L glass tank allows our chemists to see how products dissolve, disperse or mix with water in a tank. The products are then passed through a pump, filters and nozzles so that we can see what this does to the integrity of the product or whether the product is at risk of blocking filters. This is also an exceptional way to evaluate the compatibility of your products with “tank mix partners”.

Tracksprayer:- We have a large, high precision, three nozzle tracksprayer that can be configured as a boom spray or a row crop sprayer. Using this machine we can see how a product will perform when it is sprayed. We can use this equipment to apply product to plants and under local spray conditions and collect data on efficacy and crop safety.

1,000L tank sprayer:- We have a triple nozzle sprayer set up in a 1,000L tank that allows us to test whether spraying 1,000L of spray mix leads to any build up on nozzles or filters.
