Make Quick Work of Cleaning, Calibrating Nozzles


Maintaining systems for applying liquid fertilizers and other treatments to crops can be time-consuming and disruptive. Two tools from Innoquest Inc. can help.

The first is the company’s new SpotOn Tip Tool & SpotOn Nozzle Cleaner combo package for quick cleaning and maintenance of spray tips and nozzle bodies. It has a high-quality, durable construction for long-lasting use, according to an article in Farm Industry News.

The SpotOn Nozzle Cleaner clears plugged nozzles with a 50 PSI air blast that can be used anytime, anywhere because it never needs refilling or recharging. Plus, the four-in-one SpotOn Tip Tool features a brush, foldout plastic pick, spanner wrench and utility hook that make spray tip maintenance easy and convenient.”

Operation takes three steps: pull open, compress the plunger and release the blast.

Another time- and money-saver from Innoquest is the SpotOn Sprayer Calibrator, which provides accurate flow measurement in seconds. According the company, the tool’s benefits are:

  • Quickly finding worn spray nozzle tips: Industry guidelines recommend tip replacement once flow rate exceeds that of a new tip by 10%.
  • Accurately measuring true tip flow rate: Today’s high-tech sprayers can be properly calibrated and confirmed only with this information.
  • Fast and simple operation: Readings in 10 seconds or less per tip.

Here’s the process: Press the START button, then hold the meter under the nozzle at a slight angle. Allow the meter to fill until the display shows the flow rate. Then, empty the meter by pouring the water out of the top. The display holds the reading for 90 seconds.
