I am looking for nozzle size to apply hay preservative. Figured I need to put 15lbs/ton on. Takes about 30 min. to bale a ton. So .055 gal. per min. @30psi. I saw a ref. to 110067 in archives but, not sure of the make. The smallest Teejet I can find is .061 GPM.

If you take some time to peruse Harvestec's website, dig into their manual section... and in there, if you take the time to read through it all, probably in a spare parts list, you will find the T-Jet number for the nozzles they use.
I couldn't find the same number in T-jet's catologue online... so I don't know if it's an old number, or an old special low flow rate nozzle or jsut what the deal is, but have a look for yourself.
I've been looking into it myself and I'll be dammed if I spend 1500 bucks for a very basic sprayer that I can buy at Princess Auto for less than 200 bucks...
Like has been said, it's not rocket science.

One thing I think I will do tho is get a good moisture tester and follow it. The stuff is too expensive to apply arbitrarly and it's too risky to not apply enough or else you have very expensive ditch hay...

Another thing to think about is the shape of the spray pattern. You can get hollow cones, flat fan, and flood amoung others. The fan nozzels come in 60 degree, 70 degree, etc.

I agree, pick out the tip you think will work, then adjust the pressure to get the desired amount.

On a field sprayer, I used to catch the spray coming out of one tip in one minute. You can do the same thing here.

one thing you will have to watch is to not get too small of a tip, then try to increase the pressure too much. You will cause the spray to mist, then the wind will start messing with your coverage plus waste spray.

Good luck, Gene

Set the pressure to match the needed output.Its not rocket science. Pick up a Tee Jet or Delavan spray book.There are charts in the books to tell you outputs at various pressure settings. Most TSC stores give the books away.
