The most popular use of reflex nozzles is to spray pesticides, especially herbicides, downwards over low growing weeds, crops or soil surfaces.
Reflex nozzles produce Coarse to Extra Coarse drops that can be
projected for distances up to a metre from each side of the nozzle (depending on nozzle size chosen). The coarser and larger the drop the lower the risk of spray drift.
Reflex nozzles can spray swaths of up to 2 metres wide, and often from a lower height than would be necessary for other nozzle types. The distribution of spray projected onto a flat surface such as soil is almost uniform across the swath but, often, with higher deposits at the edges of the swath.
