A Quiet Sprayer
One of our Customer Service Technicians recently received a phone call from a customer who needed a custom-built skid sprayer. Topping the list of requirements? The sprayer couldn't make a lot of noise. The customer explained that he had always used gas engine-driven sprayers. It had always been a good fit for his spray application needs. However, he recently was awarded a new contract from a property management company. The new contract involved landscaping services for multiple condominium neighborhoods that were governed by Home Owner's Associations (HOA) Rules & Regulations.
The HOA rules required all spraying be completed during the hours of 6:00 -8:00 a.m. on specific days of the week. Since our customer admitted that his gas engine sprayers are loud, he was concerned that the disturbance would wake tenants if used at 6:00 a.m.
Electric Sprayers: Quiet & Efficient
We designed a skid sprayer using a Hypro XL series roller pump powered by a 12V motor.
The pump head used is made for roundup and other corrosive chemicals, and also supplied enough flow and pressure to mimic his gas engine sprayers. Our customer was very pleased with the solution (as were the condo tenants, no doubt).
