ASABE Revises Standard for Ag Sprayers

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has published a revision to its standard for classifying nozzles on agricultural sprayers.

ANSI/ASAE S572.3 FEB2020, Spray Nozzle Classification by Droplet Spectra, aligns the classification aspects of the spray nozzle requirements with ISO 25358:2018 Crop protection equipment—Droplet-size spectra from atomizers—Measurement and classification.

ASABE members with standards access and those with site-license privileges can access the full-text via electronic download on the ASABE online Technical Library at elibrary.asabe.org. Others can obtain a copy for a fee directly from the library or by contacting ASABE headquarters at OrderStandard@asabe.org.

Members of this Association who are not also members of ASABE can receive at no cost the compilation of industry standards produced by ASABE—a $650 value. Contact Rachel Boehm at Rachel@FarmEquip.org, or call (314) 878-2304 to receive this member benefit.
