Fertiliser nozzles

Presently using chafer dribble bars but a potential change to a different sprayer means that nozzles would be the way to go.
What are you using and how do you get on with them?

Hardi Quintastreams have done well here. Hypro ESI seemed to be more scorchy but maybe we just had the pressures wrong. Moved to a second line and Chafer Streambars when we changed sprayer and didn't regret it at all.

Getting fed up with my bfs auto streamers, they keep breaking, are agroco umbrella nozzles any good?
I didn’t like them and found they scorched a lot, a friend doing a serious amount of liquid also found the same, they moved to Hypro ESI and I never had scorch with them and they always had a good stream at different rates/heights

The agroco also hold liquid N droplets inside the nozzle so as you fold it puts liquid all over the machine, you don’t get this problem with the hypro esi plus the Agroco is 3” long so they can snap if you hit the ground/crop

Knew it find the answer on here, been running umbrella nozzles for quite a few years now and noticed scorch unless I could time with rain, which I've managed well over the year's, thought it was something I was doing wrong, so looking at ESI, say I'm regularly doing 240L/ha, would the number 10 light blue be correct??

What speed would you be going at? I tried to keep pressure as low as possible, and ran at just over 1 bar - any lower and the pattern would shrink and you wouldn’t get the double overlap. If you travel at 12kmh then they’re about right,
