AIR BUBBLE JETS AND EASY JETS FROM BFS
Minimum spray drift – Maximum spray contact
- Proven, effective spray tip used internationally for over 25 years.
- Superior coverage, even dispersion, and consistent droplet size.
- Reduces number of small, driftable droplets and creates air bubbles in larger droplets.
- No wasting expensive chemical products.
- Less affected by wind, more spraying day opportunities.
- Reduces spray drift up to 75 percent according to independent research.
- Less than two percent driftable droplets (100 microns) compared to 20 percent with conventional nozzles.
- Wide range of situations, excellent at both low- and high-water rates.
- Wide range of sizes provides flexible application rates.
- Fits any standard nozzle holders easy to fit, clean, and remove.
Droplets may range from 50 to 350 microns in size producing over 20 percent in drifted chemical. The Bubble Jets consistently sprays 200 to 550 microns with less than two percent in drifted droplets. This uniform droplet spectrum ensures optimal leaf coverage to enhance chemical efficiency.
How are they used?
Simply fitted to a standard nozzle body on the spray boom of any crop sprayer. Optimum operating pressure is 40 to 60 psi, with an overall range of 20 to 90 psi. This is the ideal selection when applying low volumes.
How does it work?
- The liquid being sprayed passes through a removable tapered nozzle (A) which accelerates the liquid and projects the flow into the tapered opening of the venturi (B).
- This creates a vacuum that causes air to be sucked in through the slots marked (C).
- The mixture of air and liquid is compressed as it passes through the mixing chamber (D) and is then sprayed through the fan nozzle (E).
- The emitted spray contains large droplets filled with air bubbles, but virtually no fine, drift-prone droplets.
- The droplets explode on impact with the target to produce similar coverage to conventional finer sprays.

Why use them?
The sprayers listed above limit you to using larger sized, conventional nozzles. These produce a fine spray at a high pressure, which creates a considerable amount of drift. When pressure is reduced, larger droplets are formed, or a coarse spray pattern occurs, resulting in reduced coverage and control. Easy Jet produces a droplet spectrum of 200 to 550 microns meaning less than two percent in drifted chemical and a consistent sprayer pattern even at the optimum range of 40 to 60 psi.
How are they used?
Fitted into an existing cap and gasket, they are used at an ideal pressure of 40 to 60 psi, with an overall range of 20 to 90 psi.
