Spray Quality

We have conducted scientific experiments to determine the best setups for the full range of tasks.  The AGRAS MG-1S drone has specific characteristics that improve spray quality and help produce even dispersion, whilst reducing the risk of any spray drift to non-target areas.  It allows us to use low drift nozzles (like AI TeeJet™) producing extremely course and ultra course droplets yet still achieve spray patterns normally seen at higher water rates or with smaller droplet size nozzles.  How?  Read on…

To fly, a helicopter has to accelerate air downward.  The AGRAS MG-1S drone takes advantage of this and sprays into the downward accelerated air.  The accelerated droplets impact the target surface and burst, spreading the pesticide around the target much more than spray pressure alone will do.  The result?  See for yourself…
