One of the most widely used and popular equipment brands in the agricultural industry is John Deere. John Deere sprayers include a variety of models that span from the average small farm to large-scale farms, commercial pastures or agricultural land, and field crops. All sprayers-no matter the make or model- require periodic maintenance and oftentimes this means replacing parts like sprayer tips, nozzles, or boom components. With the popularity of John Deere products, it should come as no surprise that some of our top selling replacement parts are those that are manufactured by Hypro specifically for John Deere sprayers.Read More

Centrifugal pumps are high flow, low-pressure pumps that can deliver pressure ratings of anywhere from 0 to 150 psi and flow rates up to 440 gpm. How exactly do centrifugal pumps work? Well, if you are feeling a bit technical, here’s a simple explanation: On a centrifugal pump, the liquid enters through the middle into an impeller that forces the liquid into the outlet of the pump.
Centrifugal pumps are known to be heavy-duty and durable due to their fewer parts and minimum wear surfaces. Another great feature is they are easy to clean and maintain.
They can be used in a variety of applications including agricultural and industrial spraying. They come in different materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, and even polypropylene, making them capable of handling a variety of liquids and chemicals. They are mostly used with water, insecticides, herbicides, wettable powders, emulsives, and liquid fertilizers just to name a few. Some centrifugal pumps, specifically those made from polypropylene, can handle acids and other corrosive liquids.
Centrifugal pumps can be powered by different methods, the most common include:
This series is specifically designed for easy use with tractor mounted sprayers. They can handle big, high-capacity spraying jobs with ease and are easy to install/uninstall.
Pressure ratings: 62 - 104 psi
Flow rate: 82 - 140 gpm
Speed: 600 or 1000 rpm
As their name describes, this series can be mounted onto a gas engine. They are available with or without a mounting base for easy and secure installation depending on your engine.

Your pump will last longer and perform at its best if you keep up with routine service.
