3 Reasons Why Aluminum Frames Are Better

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jan 13, 2017

Sprayer Frames: Steel or Aluminum? 

We often get asked what makes Kings Sprayers better than other sprayers on the market. Our response typically explains how the high quality components that are used to build Kings Sprayers result in a superior sprayer. For example, all Kings Sprayers are built with 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. 

In this blog post we'll discuss the benefits of aluminum frames and highlight three reasons why they're better than steel frames.

Take a close look at the two pictures below of a NorthStar steel frame sprayer that was recently brought to our Service & Repair Department. At barely a year old, this sprayer looks like it's ready for the junk yard! The paint has chipped off, the straps look dangerous and it won't be long before this frame starts to corrode and fall apart. So, while it may have cost less initially, in the long run it'll be a more expensive choice because the short life of the sprayer will result in the need to replace it with a brand new one.

"Aluminum frames are often the best choice for spray equipment due to their resistance to rust and corrosion," said Sprayer Depot Sales Manager  Brandon Grossman . "Aluminum is also lightweight, typically 1/3 the weight of steel, which makes the wheeled sprayers easier to move around. Plus, because of the lighter weight, there's less wear and tear on any vehicle transporting a skid sprayer. We have had local customers bring in their 15 year old sprayer for pump repairs and the frame still looks brand new! It never needs a new coat of paint.  

In some situations, such as larger capacity sprayers with more weight, a steel frame may be a consideration," added Grossman.  "Steel is less likely to bend under weight, but this is only in extreme circumstances."

3 Benefits of Aluminum Sprayers 

  1. Aluminum sprayers will never rust or need to be painted.  All Kings Sprayers are built with 6061 aircraft grade aluminum so they will never rust or require painting. 
  2. Aluminum sprayers are easy to maneuver.  A lightweight sprayer is much easier to maneuver than a steel sprayer, especially when spraying tight areas such as greenhouses, orchards or nurseries.
  3. Aluminum sprayers are chemical-resistant. Unlike steel sprayers which will corrode over time, aluminum is chemical-resistant so maintenance is kept to a minimum.

Kings Sprayers: Building a Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Sep 25, 2015

Sprayer_build

Building sprayers is more than a job, it's a passion. Passion for ensuring customers' satisfaction, for finding set-ups that improve efficiency and ease of application, and most of all, a passion to build quality products that are cost-effective and time-saving. We are passionate about what we do and we are proud to manufacture Kings Sprayers in Orlando, FL. 

Do you want to learn more about how we build  Kings Sprayers? We thought you would so we've outlined the basic steps from start to finish.

The first step after we've received your order is for our production manager to go over the work order for your specific sprayer model. If it is a custom sprayer, he makes sure that it can be built according to your specifications while also following safety standards. If our production team identifies something that could be improved or changed to give you a product that may better meet your needs, our team will offer the solution and work with you to design the best set-up for your needs.  We love it when customers take an active role in customizing their sprayers. After all, no one knows your job better than you do! 

Then we move to the manufacturing process, where our welders will build a sturdy, yet lightweight, aluminum frame that will support all components in your sprayer. The next step involves assembly and this is where everything comes together. Our assembly technicians will carefully install all the individual components (hose reels, pumps, boomless nozzles, tanks, engines etc.) and make sure that every part is set up correctly. The unit then moves to our quality control station where it will be thoroughly tested.

Building Kings Sprayers at our Orlando facility instead of just outsourcing manufacturing means that we have control over quality, can offer better customization along with great prices and faster delivery times. We stand behind our products and can guarantee that our sprayers are built to the highest standards of quality and with the best available parts.
