The new Turbo TeeJet Induction (TTI) spray tip from TeeJet Spray Products provides excellent drift resistance without compromising spray pattern distribution. Ideal for use in areas near residential property, open water or other susceptible plants, the TTI utilizes a unique pre-orifice design to control drift. Smaller droplets in the spectrum are eliminated and large, air-filled drift resistant droplets are produced. Other TTI spray tip features include a wide-angle flat spray pattern, excellent spray distribution, economical polymer construction, quick removal of the pre-orifice for easy cleaning/inspection and a wide range of capacities.
The main people responsible for the product development of the TTI were Gary Paulsen, Steve Pearson, Marc Arenson and Eric Greenawalt.
After extensive evaluation of two previous nozzle designs, being the Turbo TeeJet and the AI (Air Induction TeeJet), the engineers at Spraying Systems Co. took design features from both nozzles and combined them into the TTI. The main goal of the TTI was to meet and exceed the very stringent drift regulations in Europe and other parts of the world. A large number of designs were considered and tested before finally getting the desired results. Extensive distribution and drop size analysis were performed on these designs to maximize the nozzles performance. Evaluation of flow paths, venturi effects and atomization characteristics were all part of developing the TTI nozzle and after several years of work the TTI has come to fruition.
