TeeJet The Sentry 6140 Tip Flow Monitor provides operators with instant notification when a spray tip is clogged, damaged, lost or misaligned leading to abnormal flow rate. Alarms make operators aware of the problem and a graphic display shows the location of the affected nozzle. The need to detect tip problems from the cab is eliminated and allows operators to cover more acres in a day. Immediate detection of plugged tips can also prevent yield loss due to increased localized pest pressure or prevent the need for re-application.

Flow performance is precisely measured and monitored from every spray tip on the boom by a compact, turbine-style flow meter integrated into the nozzle body. The flow meter detects flow variations. Alerts are sent if a tip’s flow rate deviates from the average flow rate of the remaining tips on the boom.

The tip flow monitor can be used with a wide range of TeeJet single- and multiple-outlet nozzle bodies. Long wearing materials are used in bearing surfaces to ensure a consistent flow reading and the flow meter sensor is mounted externally to prevent any direct contact with the spray solution for long-term reliability.

The Sentry 6140 Tip Flow Monitor received a Silver AE50 New Product Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.
