Micronex Rotary Atomiser for Knapsack Mistblowers

The Micronex is a simple and compact attachment that can be fitted to a variety of motorised mistblowers to allow low and ultra low volume CDA spraying.  The X1 atomiser disc (driven by the airstream from the mistblower – at between 8,000 rpm and 12,000 rpm dependent on the air velocity) produces small, even-sized spray droplets which are entrained in the airstream and carried to the target.  The unit is suitable for ULV (Ultra Low Volume) application at volume rates typically between 0.5 – 3.0 l/ha or for use with water miscible products at low volume rates typically in the range 10 – 20 l/ha.

The attachment can be supplied in a basic version without a handle and the Micronex Flo version which features a handle with an on/off trigger valve and in-line filter. The Micronex Flo also comes with interchangeable orifice restrictor plates to regulate flow rate.

Spray can be projected up to 8 metres in height or can cover swath widths of up to 50m when spraying with a prevailing wind to target insect pests in crop or open vegetation.
