Air-assisted electrostatic sprayer (AAESS)
A manually-controlled external air-assisted electrostatic nozzle has been designed with the help of externally supplied high-pressurized air. External air supply improves the aerodynamics between the spray exit from the nozzle and the actual target. This work relates to electrostatic spraying apparatus, having an external airassistive arrangement for the variable target coverage, high-range target distance, and applicable to the transient agro-climatic conditions such as the presence of strong wind. This minimizes the off-target losses of active ingredients to soil, water, and atmosphere. Electrostatic spray technology has a cut above performance in getting better droplet size, size distribution, and deposition uniformity. It increases transfer efficiency, bio-efficacy, uniform deposition, maximum canopy coverage, and reaches areas underneath of the target. This sprayer is light-weight and highly reduces pesticide use and human health risks, and is friendly to the environment.
