Smart Regulated Pressure

Less inputs for more yields thanks to PWM

The new SRP option for Smart Regulated Pressure uses the principle of PWM, Pulse Width Modulation. The latter allows the user to control the drops size for his site while optimizing the rate. This control also makes it possible to have a better distribution of the spray solution on the plant. Also, thanks to PWM, the risk of dispersion is reduced and drift is controlled.
PWM also has a major advantage for its user: that of no longer having to handle the nozzle support / nozzles before a job.

The choice of drop size is associated with a given pressure, which the SRP system will endeavor to regulate. The major advantage of the SRP system is being able to maintain this pressure at the nozzle despite variations in forward speed, the rate to be applied [L / ha], the number of open nozzles or the number of open sections. These are all elements that normally make it vary.

PWM, what for?

This pressure-controlled operation at the nozzle provides the user benefits in terms of spray quality:

– homogeneous droplet spectrum
– full spray angle
– reduced risk of clogging

and advantages on the quantity of inputs. Indeed, the fact of having a better quality of spraying makes possible to reduce the quantity of spray solution to be spread on a hectare. It also has advantages on its work organization. Actually, this pressure regulation at the nozzle makes it possible to work over a wider temperature range while reducing the phenomenon of evaporation and with less favorable hygrometric and anemometric conditions thanks to the management of the drop size. PWM is therefore optimal spraying while ensuring a perfect spray for ideal double recoveries. Manufactured by OPTIMA Concept, the stainless steel nozzle supports provide the best possible solution to the user’s needs.
