Product Highlight: Hypro D30 Diaphragm Pump and GS40GI Control Unit

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Dec 21, 2015

Hypro diaphragm pumps are recommended for spraying herbicides, pesticides, liquid fertilizers, and many other hard-to-handle fluids. The Hypro D30 is one of Hypro's most popular medium pressure diaphragm pumps. Its low cost maintenance, and almost wear-free operation help make it the ideal choice for a wide variety of spraying jobs. This is definitely one of our top selling pumps, and the preferred choice for several of our small to medium-sized Kings Sprayers® models.

Interested in learning more? Let's look at the specs on this pump!

Need to control the pressure?

You can mount a control unit (also known as a regulator) on this pump for easy flow and pressure control of your sprayer system. Hypro GS40GI is a popular control unit companion for the D30. Installation is easy and we'll gladly mount it for you. Just let one of our friendly Customer Service Technicians know what you need.

Prefer to install it yourself? Follow these simple steps for direct mounting onto the pump:

  1. Locate the discharge flange port on the discharge manifold

  2. Using a 13 mm wrench, remove the nuts holding the flange manifold

  3. Remove the o-ring from the groove of the flange and install into the control unit flange

  1. Install the control unit onto the manifold where the discharge port had been previously

  2. Use the nuts previously removed to secure the control unit

  3. Install the hose barb outlets onto the control unit, making sure the o-rings are in place on the hose barbs

Just as every other part of your pump, the control unit also requires servicing and maintenance. If you need to repair the entire unit, order the repair kit and follow the instructions below to have it fixed in no time!

To repair a Hypro GS40GI unit, you will need the following tools:

Now let's get started! 

  • Repair Kit for Hypro D30 PumpUsing a ½ inch socket, loosen the 2 bolts that hold the regulator housing

  • Remove the regulator housing

  • Push out the valve stem with your fingers, releasing the 3 pieces

  • Using a pick, remove the popit

  • Using a hook, remove the revealed O-ring and plastic rubber seat 

  • Remove the metal seat

  • Replace the popit

  • You may need to use a pick to push in (around the edges)

  • Replace the plastic seat with the flat side going in first

  • The seat should be flush to the metal inside

  • Replace the O-ring, install the chrome piece and spring

  • There are 2 parts to the copper side; the larger side should be installed facing the top of the regulator

  • Replace the metal seat

  • Replace the regulator

  • Tighten the bolts using a ½ inch socket

7 Must Haves For Your Sprayer Emergency Kit

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Nov 11, 2015

Many of our customers are getting ready to store their sprayer. To make this task as easy as possible, we've been Emergency_Repair_Kitsharing our end-of-season tips and tricks in our previous posts. Now is also the perfect time to put together a sprayer emergency kit if you haven't already.

An emergency kit will cut your downtime and save you time and money by keeping  a few essential parts on hand so you can quickly repair your spray equipment. When breakdowns happen no one is happy, so avoid downtime by stocking up on replacement parts.

The parts in your emergency kit will vary depending on the type of spray equipment you use, but we've compiled a list of the most commonly needed parts for repairing and maintaining some of our most popular Kings Sprayers.

Spray Tips and Nozzles: Replace spray tips and nozzles immediately if you notice a change in flow rate or a change in pattern distribution. Damaged spray tips and nozzles are sometimes overlooked but can cost you money and precious time if not replaced in a timely manner.

Strainers: A clogged strainer is one of the most common repairs our Service Repair Technicians see on a daily basis. You can prolong your strainer's life by cleaning it often, however, it's a good idea to keep a replacement strainer, gasket and seal. 

Spray Guns: We recommend not only keeping a spray gun repair kit but also a spare spray gun that you can use, just in case. One of the most common spray guns is the JD9-C pictured below, we sell a repair kit to replace the seals if the gun starts to leak and we have a short instructional video that will make the repair a breeze. 

Spray Hose: Although hoses are pretty tough they can bend and crack which affects the performance of your sprayer so we recommend having spare suction, bypass and discharge hoses on hand in case you need a quick replacement.

Hose Fittings: Besides storing replacement spare hoses, reusable hose fittings should also be on your list. Check out our video on this easy repair!

Diaphragm: Having a diaphragm repair kit in your emergency kit is definitely a must. These handy and inexpensive kits can make all the difference when it comes to staying up and running, or increasing your downtime. We have a couple of instructional videos that will guide you on the steps necessary to replace the diaphragm in your pump.

Pumps: Just like the diaphragm, many parts in your pump can be easily replaced, but some can't and sometimes the pump will fail and the only solution is a replacement. We recommend keeping a spare pump as part of your emergency kit.

A sprayer emergency kit will also help you save money by avoiding a trip to the service and repair shop, but in case you need it, you can count on us to offer you the best repair service. Don't hesitate to give us a call if you need help with a repair, or if you want to schedule a repair and service appointment at our Orlando, FL retail location. Just call 800-228-0905.

Guide to Pump Repair Kits and Routine Maintenance

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Jun 24, 2014

We are halfway through spray season and you know what that means, time for routine maintenance to keep your sprayers working like a well-oiled machine. Most manufacturers recommend this regular upkeep every three months, with more attention needed during this heavy use time of year. Here we’ll cover three sprayer pump types – diaphragm, centrifugal and roller – and provide the information you need to know to ensure smooth operation for the remainder of the season.

Hypro D30 Pump                   Hypro Roller Pump                    Hypro Roller Pump 7560

First, you’ll need a pump repair kit. Repair Kits are unique for each type of pump and include durable items intended to repair components that see more wear-and-tear or need extra attention every few months. You will notice o-rings, seals and diaphragms in these kits, among other components. So let’s take a closer look:

D30 Diaphragm Pump Repair Kit (Item #9910KIT1724)  

  • Hypro recommends changing diaphragms every 3 months or 500 hours.

  • Watch this video for a closer look at how to install a pump repair kit.

  • If the oil in the sight glass on the pump turns a milky color or oil comes out of the discharge port you most likely have a diaphragm rupture.

  • Diaphragms are the main wear part on the pump and separate the oil-filled crankcase from the chemical you are spraying. Failure to change diaphragms regularly, or run the pump with ruptured diaphragms, will cause pump failure – and a lot of headache.

7560 Series Roller Pump Repair Kit (Item #34300381)

  • Roller pump repair kits include new seals, rollers and o-ring for the endplate.

  • If your pump does not prime or experiences loss of pressure, this can be caused by stuck rollers or seals leaking air. If the pump shaft will not turn there may be solid objects caught inside the pump or the pump itself may need to be replaced.

  • Before ordering a repair kit, press the pump apart and inspect the body and endplate for lips or indents. If you find lips or indents the pump will need to be replaced. If the body and endplate are in good condition, installing a repair kit will have the pump running to specs.

Hypro Cast Iron Centrifugal Pump Repair Kit (Item #34300332)

  • Centrifugal pump repair kits include the mechanical seal, flat gasket and body o-ring.

  • If liquid is leaking out of the weep hole on the pump this indicates the seal is worn. This can be caused by running the pump dry or from failure to flush the pump out after use.

  • If you are experiencing low discharge output the impeller might be scarred or clogged. Impellers are not included in the repair kit, but are sold separately.

All in all, a pump repair kit is ideal to properly care for your sprayer and this simple routine maintenance will alleviate any frustration or delay in work. While you’re taking a closer look at your sprayer, check all washers and gaskets to prevent leakage, and spray hoses should be inspected under high pressure by using plain water periodically during the heavy use season. Once you’re done you’ll be happy to have invested the little bit of time to keep your sprayer in optimal working condition.

Complete a Diaphragm Repair on a Hypro D30 Pump

  • Install the 2nd side of the head, sealing the oil inside.

  • Now that both sides are on tight, place the 2 new O-rings on the base, the other 2 on the head assembly.

  • Using your index finger and middle fingers, hold the O-rings on the head and place it over the base.

  • Tighten the 2 bolts on either side of the head assembly.
