Abstract:

A sprayer of new design is described which utilizes a rotary-tube spraying principle. Droplets produced lie within more narrow size ranges compared to droplets produced by presently available rotary disc and pressure spray nozzles. The range of droplet sizes believed best for mosquito control was attained using diesel fuel as the test liquid. Droplet size of the spray is related to the tip speed of the rotary-tubes and rate of throughput of liquid.
