Abstract: The objective of this study is to investigate spray parameters for different 40°– 95° even flat fan nozzle angles for banding spraying application, such as spray pattern width and spray volumetric distribution at pressures of 2 and 3bar using different nozzle sizes (0.15, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 gpm). Spray distribution data was extracted from spray analyzer system or patternator. The results showed that nozzle angle and pressure significantly affected the spray pattern width. In addition, as the nozzle size increased, the liquid volume and the peak height under the nozzle center increased. These results suggest that the use of bigger nozzle angles improved the spray volumetric distribution.
