Rubber Collet

Bespoke Rubber Collets

We have manufactured bespoke rubber collets that act as a valve to control the flow of liquid in variable rate sprayer nozzles.

In agricultural spraying equipment, a rubber collet is used primarily for securing and sealing components within the sprayer system. It can be used for various applications:

  1. Nozzle Attachment: Rubber collets are often used to secure spray nozzles to the spray boom or lance. The flexible nature of rubber allows the collet to create a tight seal, preventing leaks and ensuring that the nozzle stays firmly in place during operation.
  2. Hose Connections: Rubber collets can connect hoses to various parts of the spraying equipment, such as pumps, tanks, and spray booms. They ensure a tight, leak-proof connection that can withstand the pressure of the spraying system.
  3. Valve Sealing: In some sprayer designs, rubber collets are used to provide a seal around valves, ensuring that they operate efficiently without leaking. This is critical for maintaining consistent pressure and flow rates in the sprayer.
  4. Pressure Regulation: Rubber collets can also be part of pressure regulation systems within the sprayer. By ensuring tight seals, they help maintain the desired pressure levels, which is crucial for effective and uniform spraying of agricultural chemicals.

Rubber collets are vital for ensuring the efficiency of agricultural spraying equipment, contributing to effective and precise application of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and other agrochemicals.
