Raven nozzle control to improve spray performance

Raven’s Hawkeye 2 nozzle control system is to improve efficiency and reduce drift.

Raven Industries launched its new Hawkeye 2 nozzle control system. Raven says its new system increases spray uniformity and consistency across the sprayer boom. This is ro reduce drift and increase application quality.

Individual nozzle control and turn compensation help eliminate skips, overlaps and misapplication in the field.

Hawkeye 2 to optimise input costs

“Hawkeye 2 offers optimal accuracy and is simple to use and maintain,” said Brian Meyer, Vice President of Raven Applied Technology. “This advanced solution enables operators with the capability to perform complex applications with ease and consistency across the boom. This reduces operator fatigue, optimises input costs and increases application quality.”

Lance Bell, a beta tester from Weldon, Iowa, ran Hawkeye 2 for a season. “We mapped and sprayed across every waterway - the individual nozzle control worked great. Our usage of chemical was down, and our productivity increased a ton. Using Hawkeye 2 to set and maintain a consistent pressure, we were able to adjust for how the wind was blowing that day to stay consistent.” - Photo: Raven Industries

Increased flow per nozzle

According to Meyer, increased flow per nozzle and variable Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) frequency provide the ability to dynamically compensate to the varying conditions of agriculture.
