Induction hoppers

Watson & Brookman has developed pesticide induction hoppers with twin container rinsing nozzles to exploit Hypro-EU's ProClean rotating multi-spray nozzle and ProClean Plus blade jet.

Together, the two rinsing devices ensure that pesticide containers of all sizes can be cleaned thoroughly and quickly using the minimum amount of water.

"We produced a conversion kit for operators wanting to install the second rinsing nozzle into our regular 25-litre Mk2 hopper on new or existing sprayers. It's a bit cramped for rinsing larger containers though, so we now make the same design a bit wider, which increases the volume to 30 litres and is more convenient to use with the twin nozzle system," explains Watson & Brookman director Tim Watson.

A new 50-litre hopper is also available for larger trailed and self-propelled sprayers as original equipment.

Grounds care contractors and others buying a new sprayer equipped with Watson & Brookman induction hoppers can ask for the twin rinsing nozzles to be installed as original equipment.

They can also purchase the conversion kit for existing sprayers from Cambridge-based Hypro-EU.
