Innovative drift reduction
Together with the TWIN system, which already has best-in-class drift reduction and penetration characteristics, the HARDI PulseSystem is an essential additional step forward in controlling where pesticides are deposited directly from the driver’s seat.
Combining two innovative drift-reducing technologies, HARDI has developed an application system with the potential to deliver the least amount of drift on the market.
By opening and closing the nozzles, the HARDI PulseSystem can keep the nozzles open from 30-100% at the same pressure flow while ensuring the droplet size is unaffected. Therefore, the same nozzle can be used at several different driving speeds.
At the same time, drift is minimised while the flow rate is optimised, as the most optimal droplet size can be maintained, unlike a conventional system where more drift will occur the more liquid you try to squeeze through the nozzles.
Thanks to the CurveControl function, chemicals are saved, and the environmental impact is reduced in fields with many curves or when spraying around windmill towers or remises. Here, a minimum of spray liquid is applied at the inside and full flow, where the boom runs fast at the outer wings. This automatically prevents over and under-dosing.
In addition, the PulseSystem works with a single nozzle on/off – at a 36 m boom, control of all 72 nozzles at a single nozzle level. This can be done, for example, via a digital field map. Thus, the total field map determines how much pesticide to apply – and savings of up to 90% are possible by treating only the areas with mapped pests in the field.
The HARDI PulseSystem is supplied for the conventional DELTA FORCE boom on AEON and NAVIGATOR, as well as the TWIN boom on AEON.
