Streambar MR – Liquid fertiliser nozzle
Stream or dribble bars are the most efficient and accurate method of applying liquid fertiliser to a growing crop. With additional UV protection and the ability to link the bars across the boom Streambar MR offers growers the most robust and accurate application system on the market. The MR system speeds up changes in application rate, simplifies installation onto all types of sprayer and minimises the risk of damage or twisting while spraying.
Quick & Simple Rate Changes
While the original Streambar design required the use of several colour coded restrictors to change application rates the Streambar MR features an integrated Multi Rate metering system to alter application rate. Instead of removing the bar and changing a colour coded restrictor, rates are changed by adjusting the sliding metering mechanism. Six different restrictor options offer a wide range of application rates extending the previous range by two restrictor sizes.
Not only does the Multi Rate system save the expense of purchasing different restrictors but it also offers large practical benefits. The operator is not exposed to fertiliser when changing restrictors as the metering unit is completely sealed. Rate change can be achieved quickly as the Streambars can be left on the boom and no spare restrictors need to be carried with the sprayer.
Unaffected by Boom Height
Unlike fertiliser caps Streambar MR creates vertical streams of liquid fertiliser. This means that the application pattern is consistent regardless of boom height. On breezy days when a normal fertiliser cap could not be used a Streambar MR can extend the sprayers working window. The boom can be dropped to just above the crop minimising spray disruption but without compromising spray pattern.
