Syngenta/Cambridge sign spray technology evaluation deal

Syngenta has signed a licensing agreement with UK-based product design and development firm Cambridge Consultants (Cambridge, Cambridgeshire) to evaluate the UK company’s Vortik spray technology. Syngenta will evaluate the potential of the technology for agriculture and lawn-care applications. Vortik allows different liquids to be mixed at the point of spray without altering the spray characteristics, giving instantaneous control over chemical composition and enabling more precise application of products such as pesticides, the company says. Conventional atomisers use either a high pressure or high air flow to create a spray. Vortik combines low-pressure air and liquid in a specially shaped cyclone chamber. Shear between swirling air and the liquids creates the desired droplet size for spraying, it adds. “As well as the benefits of in-nozzle mixing at the point of spray, the technology can be combined with a network of sensors to enable variation of a formulation based on real-time feedback,” says the head of industrial product development at Cambridge Consultants, Nathan Wrench.
