The present invention relates to agricultural machinery, mainly to sprayers for processing of field crops and perennial plantings small doses of the working fluid.

Known ultra-low volume sprayer according to patent RU 2058740 C1, A01M 7/00, 1996, consisting of frame, tank, piping, duct, spray in the form of streammessage device with a slit nozzle and nutritious tube connected to the tank.

Disadvantages are large local resistance at the entrance of the air in the slit nozzle, causing pressure loss in the nozzle, and the small width of the jet at the exit and limited fluid flow from the feed tube atomizer.

Also known as ultra-low volume sprayer (patent RU 2275022 C1, A01M 7/00, 2006, prototype), containing frame, tank, balance tank, piping, duct, an air tube and a nozzle with a slit nozzle and pneumococci in the form of a cavity that is installed in front of the air tube over the slot nozzle spray and seal.

The technical solution is to save the consumption of the working fluid increases the width of the grip, performance and a wider range of doses of fluid flow and obtaining the required quality of processing.

The technical problem is solved in that the sprayer of ultram objelem, containing frame, tank, balance tank, piping, duct, an air tube and a nozzle with a slit nozzle and pneumococci in the form of a cavity that is installed in front of the air tube over the slot nozzle spray, and the gasket, the atomizer has pneumococci with upper and lower dish-shaped disks and spacers between them, forming a slit nozzle, and a removable feeding tube collector ring type over a slot nozzle with holes in the bottom.

Nutrient tubes have a different number of holes of a maximum diameter, arranged in various groups.

The nutrient tube aligned holes therein mounted clamps with a different number and diameter of holes.

Strip, forming a slit nozzle, removable, various shapes and sizes that define its width and thickness.

The novelty of the claimed proposal due to the fact that, compared with the prototype has a wider application possibilities, better performance in connection with drawing the working fluid at an angle of up to 360°depending on the task. When inpatient treatment (e.g. irrigation) possible supply of fluid round, when the mobile processing it is recommended to use width to spray up to 180°. This improves the quality of the dispersion RA the eyes of the liquid, as she moves on top of the air flow from the slot nozzles. Prevents zabyvaemo output of holes, as they are nutritious tube-manifold, and the diameter of the holes on the clips selected on the basis of the type of working fluid (emulsion, suspension, solution). Strip streammessage devices allow you to change the speed and range of the jet and its width and disc drives when moving the nozzle vertically to allow you to change the width of the range.

According to scientific, technical and patent information not revealed the claimed combination of features, clearly stemming from the current level of technology that allows to make a conclusion about the electoral level present invention.

The invention is illustrated by drawings, where figure 1 is a flow diagram of the sprayer, figure 2 - a view A-A.

The ultra-low volume sprayer includes a frame, tank, balance tank, piping, duct, an air tube (not shown) and an atomizer that has pneumococci 1 with the top 2 and bottom 3 platter drives strips 4 between them, forming slit nozzle 5, with an extension at the outlet, and a removable feeding tube collector 6 ring type over a slit nozzle 5 with the openings 7 in the lower part.

On the feeding tube-collector 6 are special clamps 8 with holes 9, which are arranged coaxially with the holes 7 of the nutrient tube 6.

Works sprayer as follows.

Air from a compressor or other source is supplied under pressure to the duct through an air tube (not shown) in pneumococci 1, from between the upper 2 and lower 3 disc discs and pads 4 between them, forming the slit nozzle 5 with the expansion of output in the form of a flat jet, on top of which follows the working fluid from the replaceable nutrient tube collector 6 ring type with holes 7 in the lower part, which are special clamps with 8 holes 9. The working fluid is dispersed and droplet stream is directed to the object.

The speed of a jet, and accordingly, the distance (width) is regulated by the air pressure in the duct, the shape and size of the strips forming the output nozzle.

Dose of fluid flow depends on the diameter of the outlet openings and the number of special clamps and position of the surge tank height.

Before treatment operation, hose sections are moved to working position, i.e., in parallel with surface to be treated. Movable members of housing are set in horizontal position. Water feeding is provided through pipeline from reservoir and preparation is fed through pipeline from tank into mixer. Simultaneously, pump is switched on and flow velocity regulator is moved to position for returning of working fluid through return pipeline into mixer. Converging tube is positioned with its flare portion oriented in direction of treatment. After switching-on pump, spraying apparatus advances along permanent way portion to be treated. Air flow velocity sensor generates signal delivered to flow velocity regulator drive to provide change-over of feeding of working fluid from return pipeline into pressure pipeline, through which working fluid is delivered to sprayers for applying working fluid onto road-way of permanent railway.
