We Strive for Perfection
Sprayer Depot is one of the top choices for spray equipment and sprayer parts in the U.S. But
what’s behind the secret to our success? There are a number of things we do better than any other spray equipment company, and these differences help us rise above our competitors.
Nozzles may be small, but they play a critical role in the application of chemicals. Selecting the proper size and type of nozzle is an essential step to determine the amount of spray applied to an area. Use the wrong nozzle, and you may over or under spray the solution which will result in an ineffective application.

1. What's your application type? (i.e., agricultural, pest control, lawn & landscape, etc.)
2. What's the predetermined distribution pattern? (i.e., broadcast, banded, stream, etc.)
3. What's the recommended droplet size?
4. What type of nozzle material is needed to avoid corrosion?
Let's go over a couple of key elements you can apply to answer the questions above:

This allows excess liquid flow to by-pass back to a tank or drain. Using a control unit will ensure that flow is cut off at a certain pressure to ensure a safe and accurate application.
Save money in chemical costs and time by installing a control unit on to your pump. Let’s take a look at one of our most popular control units:
