Nozzles come in many sizes, types, and angles and work at various pressures, providing different spray angles, droplet sizes and patterns, and for each type also different flow rates.
Most C-Spray nozzles are ISO color coded, with each different color corresponding to a defined flow rate.
This flow rate is also part of the tip number : 04 stands for a flow rate of 0.4 Gallon per Minute rated at 40 psi.
The main tip characteristics are indicated by the tip number :
- Nozzle Type
- Spray Angle
- Flow Rate = ISO color code
For example, this AVI nozzle states :
- AVI : Type/Name
- 110 : spray angle : 110°
- 015 – Green : 0.15 GPM flow rate at 40 psi
ISO Color Codes and Spray Tip Sizes :
The size of the hole in the nozzle determines the flow rate : the larger the hole, the larger the application rate, and the coarser the spray.
