SwathPRO – “On the Fly” Nozzle Control by CapstanAG

The SwathPRO Aerial Application System from CapstanAG gives Ag Pilots individual nozzle control previously unattainable in aerial application. SwathPRO provides the pilot ability to switch from one boom nozzle setup to another without landing the plane. The SwathPRO system utilizes CapstanAG’s Pulse with Modulation solenoid at each nozzle station controlled by in cockpit user display. CapstanAG’s patented technology, pilot feedback and industry knowledge in flow distribution, brings a new spray system to the Aerial industry focused on Pilot safety, application accuracy and drift mitigation.

CapstanAG is no stranger to liquid application. Since 1994, CapstanAG (based in Topeka KS) has specialized in pressure control & flow distribution on self-propelled sprayers, Creating the patented Pulse with Modulation technology which has become a standard in the industry.

Since the debut of SwathPRO at the 2018 NAAA convention in Reno, CapstanAG has successfully installed on multiple Air Tractors across the US. Significant milestones are being reached with the SwathPRO system with over 1.5 million acres covered in past three years. Cockpit Integration with controllers, “Auto Mode” (allowing pressure to stay constant regardless of speed or rate change), along with CapstanAG’s PWM solenoid, are controlling the servo valve to provide proper flow distribution.

As described by one of the SwathPRO pilots, “I now have an auto tip changer as I go thru the field”.

Another pilot says, “I am more accurate with less drift than I have ever been”, “SwathPRO makes my job safer & easier with no drift claims”.

Air Tractor will become the Master Dealer for the SwathPRO system and continues to support and work closely with CapstanAG. CapstanAG is currently engaged with the FAA for STC approval, soon the SwathPRO system will be offered as a factory-installed option on your new Air Tractor. CapstanAG is firmly committed to this process to further invest in advances for SwathPRO that will benefit AG Pilots. CapstanAG has a team of engineers and technical specialists who provide on-site service and support.
