It's Time for a Winter Check-up!

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jan 08, 2016

This has been quite the warm winter for most of our customers. With temperatures breaking all-time January_Sprayer_Checkup.jpgrecord highs in many places, it seems like summer is closer than it should be. It may feel like just yesterday we were emphasizing the importance of winterizing your spray equipment, but with such a mild winter we thought it may be the perfect time for a quick checkup!

Make the most out of the higher than usual January temperatures by checking on your equipment. It’s good to start your sprayer at least once before spring (as long as temperatures are mild) so go ahead and pull that sprayer out of storage and also grab the following items:

  • Pump Oil
  • Engine Oil
  • Clean Rag
  • Fresh Water

Perform a pump and engine oil change. You can find general guidelines on our blog posts: Your Pump Needs an Oil Change Too and Taking Care of Your Sprayer's Honda Engine. However, it is best to always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for your specific model. If you are having trouble locating your product’s manual please give us a call and we’ll be happy to email you a copy or you can always download them from our website.

Next, flush the entire system using clean water, paying special attention to the strainer, tips, booms and hoses for any leaks or damages. Dry off and clean the entire unit using a clean rag.

If temperatures are still freezing then its best to avoid performing any of the above tasks, instead visibly inspect every component of your sprayer for obvious signs of trouble. Any worn-out parts should be promptly replaced.

Before you put your sprayer away, perform the following steps to ensure it's ready for storage:

  • Run the pump just long enough to ensure that the system is drained of water
  • Run antifreeze through the system long enough to reach any hoses and booms; We recommend diluting the antifreeze 50/50 with either water or windshield washer fluid 
  • Cover the sprayer with a plastic tarp so that it remains clean

If you need assistance ordering any replacement parts, contact us via a phone call, email or live chat. We're here to help!

5 Tips to Help You Prepare for Winter

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Nov 23, 2015

SprayerDepot_Winter.jpg
As we write this from our headquarters in Orlando, Fl., where it still feels pretty much like summer with highs in the mid-80s, many of us are really not thinking about winter time. However, we know many of our customers are already dealing with cold weather and even snow. We may not be able to share some of this hot weather with you but we can share some great tips!

Although you may not be ready to winterize your sprayer just yet, there are a few simple steps you can do today to avoid any delays when you are ready to store it for the season. We recommend five tips to help you prepare your spray equipment for the upcoming freezing temperatures. 

  1. Make any necessary repairs: Go through every part of your spray equipment and check for any component that might need to be replaced or repaired. Now is the time to get every part working properly. If you need help with any repair please give us a call to schedule a repair or service appointment. We are happy to help!

  2. Clean the sprayer thoroughly: Grab a clean rag and wipe every inch of your sprayer down. Pay close attention to the inside of the tank and small parts that come in contact with oil or harsh chemicals.
  • Test the battery: If your sprayer's pump runs on battery, like one of our Kings Spot Sprayers*, make sure to test the battery and recharge it as needed. 
  • Inspect your protective gear: Clean your protective gear and check for any damages that might pose a health risk next time you need to wear it.  
  1. Gather product manuals: It is important to follow manufacturer recommendations when servicing your spray equipment, so make sure you are not throwing away the product manuals. When the time comes to winterize you'll have the manual handy to know exactly what you need to do. If you have misplaced your product manuals you can easily find them on our website under each product.

Spray Equipment Maintenance Tips to Implement This Fall

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Oct 14, 2015

maintenanceHow diligent are you when it comes to servicing your spray equipment? If you are guilty of waiting until your equipment fails in order to repair and replace parts and accessories, don’t worry, we have all been there once or twice. However, with fall season already started and winter just around the corner, we want to remind you of the importance of timely maintenance of your spray equipment. Low spraying season is the perfect time to perform preventive maintenance and establish a maintenance schedule for the rest of the year.

Waiting for problems to arise will not only cost you time but will also cost you a lot of money. It pays off to be proactive, so don’t delay... keep your sprayer in tip-top shape!

Here are a few things you should check off of your maintenance list this fall:

1) Change the oil in your pump, gearbox and engine. Consult your manufacturer’s recommendations on appropriate fluid changes.

2) Check spray tips for wear and replace as necessary.

3) Flush the pump and tank with clean water and make sure to dry them using a clean rag.

4) Clean the strainer by removing any debris and flushing it with water to avoid contamination and loss of pressure. If the filter in the strainer is beyond cleaning make sure to replace it.

5) Don't forget to calibrate your sprayer before storing it. Follow the steps outlined here for more information on how to perform a calibration.

You should also create a maintenance program you can use to keep track of each maintenance task. To help you get started, we have created a Sprayer Seasonal Maintenance Checklist that lists all components that need to be serviced daily, weekly, quarterly and semi-annually. It also includes a winterizing checklist! Get it now by clicking below:

5 Tips to Winterize Your Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Dec 03, 2014

Winterize Your SprayerWhile the winter season doesn’t officially start until December 21, many parts of the country are gearing up for (or already dealing with) snow. With that, our Customer Service Technicians often are asked, "How do I winterize my equipment?” or “Is there any maintenance I need to do before winter hits?” Regardless of your level of experience in the sprayer industry, this is the time of year to winterize your sprayer. Simply put, get it in tiptop shape before it sits idle for a few months. Putting in the time to prep your sprayer for hibernation now will pay in dividends come spring when the spray season picks back up.

Here we’ll talk about how to properly maintain and store your sprayer for the winter with these 5 tips.

  1. Rinse the whole sprayer system – from tank to hose, including filters and nozzles. Make sure there is no leftover spray mixture in the tank and drain all clean water to prevent freezing.
  2. Clean the outside of your sprayer just as thoroughly as you did for the inside components, using a bristle brush to get rid of any stuck on particles.
  3. Store any removable parts like nozzles and strainers in a clean, dry place. Gauges should be stored indoors to prevent freezing.
  4. Check the operator's manual for recommendations on winterizing the spray pump to prevent corroding. Some allow for use of oil, antifreeze or a radiator rust inhibitor. For Kings Sprayers models, we recommend running a 50/50 antifreeze solution through the system long enough to reach any hoses and booms. Dilute the antifreeze with either water or windshield washer fluid at a 50/50 ratio for optimal solution.
  5. Cover the sprayer so that dirt and insects can’t enter the equipment. This will also ensure all the hard work put into cleaning the outside keeps your sprayer looking good when it’s time to use it again.

These tips should help if you’re thinking: “I bought a sprayer from you earlier this year and wanted to make sure I store it properly while I am not using it this winter.” Make sure you wear protective gear when working with these materials.

5 Tips for Seasonal Sprayer Maintenance

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Sep 22, 2014

Kings Sprayers

As the season changes to autumn (officially on Sept. 22, 2014), the scenery for many of us quickly follows, adding to it shades of red, orange and yellow to the typically green landscape. The weather too will turn cooler (at least we’re hopeful in Florida) and of course the needs of our sprayer changes too. While we’re not quite to the point where we need to winterize our tools, care should be given to prep for that necessary activity and to ensure the changing weather elements don’t impact the end of your season. We’ve combed over our collection of trade tips to uncover the essential needs for this time of year.

Below are five tips for autumn sprayer maintenance from Sprayer Depot to keep you going through the end of the season. 

1. Flush your sprayer.

To get rid of all excess chemical and chemical residues, flush your sprayer at least twice with clean water. It would be awful to not flush your pump with a month left in the spray season and then rupture some diaphragms. That would result in late season repairs you might not have accounted for, let alone the hassle. When you’re finished, make sure there’s no debris left in the tank.

2. Clean strainers.

This is one of those tasks no one enjoys, but is so necessary. Partially clogged strainers can result in drops in pressure and even reduce the flow rate of your nozzle. Not to mention that a clogged or dirty strainer can be a source of contamination where you may least expect it. Since most sprayers have more than one strainer, take care to clean each.

3.  Check fuel levels.

Make sure the oil levels in your spray pump, gearbox and engine are at appropriate levels. If you do need to refill oil, check with the part manufacturer to ensure you’re using the recommended oil.

4.  Inspect machine.

What you’re looking for are a number of things, including: worn nozzles; damaged nozzle screens and strainers; cracks, leaks and overall performance in the pump; hose condition, especially cracks or brittleness; any possible leaky valves or areas where valve seals may have loosened; and finally your booms (if applicable) to make sure there aren’t any cracks that need to be fixed. While you’re at it, keep the equipment clean by wiping down motors, pumps and lines.

5. Get a winterization game plan.

As the weather changes, winter is fast approaching and it’s time to dig out your winter coat. This is also the time to think about scheduling your annual winterization maintenance and end of year sprayer tune-up. Remember that caring for your machine properly now will pay off next year when it’s time to break it back out and use it. Put it in your calendar today and check back for more tips on winterizing your sprayer as the date approaches.

With sprayer season coming to a close in most parts of the country, our friends in the lawn maintenance and pesticide industries are busy making one more pass at killing weeds before the season ends. With so many holidays approaching it can be easy to get swept away, but don’t let regular sprayer maintenance slip.

How To Manage Spray Drift in 5 Easy Steps

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Aug 27, 2014

Kings SprayerImagine you’re applying pesticides using a backpack sprayer. Or, just the same, you’re spraying from a truck using a tank, pump and hose to apply chemicals. Maybe you’re using a boom setup. For that matter, you could even be piloting an airplane and in each situation the definition of spray drift is the same.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency: “pesticide drift is the movement of pesticide dust or droplets through the air at the time of application or soon after, to any site other than the area intended.”

We’re all aware of those two dreaded words: Spray Drift. While the repercussions of it vary for each industry and application type, the definition and solutions to manage spray drift are similar. In many of these scenarios above the issue with spray drift can lead to spotty pest control, wasted chemicals, off-target damage, water and air quality issues and higher costs. That last one really hurts. As the public becomes more aware of pesticide concerns, and regulators are quick to slap fines, spray drift management from that standpoint is vital to our livelihood.

Much like you take precautions to protect yourself with your work attire by making sure to wear proper clothing, eye protection and closed-toe shoes, you should also consider these five steps to manage spray drift from Sprayer Depot.

  1. Avoid spraying when weather conditions are unfavorable. I know, I know. You’ve heard this time and time again that weather affects spray drift. It’s true though and often times we get so caught up in our day-to-day that we ignore this important factor. Think about the day’s conditions as it relates to wind, temperature and humidity, air stability, etc. Know your product labels well and understand these requirements, even for wind velocity. Make adjustments accordingly. It may, even on the extreme end, require you to reschedule that day’s work. Also think about how droplet size factors into the weather issue. Large droplets are less likely to drift in general because they fall more quickly, evaporate more slowly and are less affected by the wind given their size. We like that.
  2. Consider using buffer zones. This aspect is becoming more important given label requirements these days. These "no spray zones" serve as a barrier to protect sensitive areas and vary greatly for each landscape, equipment and application type. Design of a buffer area depends on variables like spray method, wind, chemical type and the type of sensitive area that you’re trying to avoid. In general there is not a one-size-fits-all rule.
  3. Try new technologies like drift reduction nozzles. We recently spoke to Mark Techler with Hypro & SHURflo Ag and Industrial Pumps and Accessories in a recent blog post about drift control spray tips. He explained that these drift control spray tips “use air induction to produce air filled droplets, which dramatically reduce drift compared to conventional tips.” He went on to share the benefits of this new tech and offered up the Hypro SprayIT Calculator as a resource the next time your considering one of these new parts.
  4. Lower spray (boom) heights. It makes sense. The higher the boom, and thus the spray nozzle, are above the target, the more likely that wind will move droplets away from the intended area. Your nozzle label will offer a recommendation on nozzle height, which can serve as a good starting point to adjust the boom height. However, often those recommendations for nozzle height are much higher than optimum on large application equipment traveling at higher speeds. Of course, you want to ensure the boom isn’t too low, which can create uneven patterns. A 1:1 boom height has generally been the standard, but some recommend getting a tad closer so we recommend using the manufacturer recommendation as a starting point and working down from there – take into account your unique landscape and spray mechanics. 
  5. Use lower pressures.  In general, the concept that we’ve all heard is to use lower pressures, which result in larger droplets. However, in today’s application world this method might need some adjusting given the new technologies with drift control spray nozzles. With the design of some drift control spray nozzles that introduce air induction, these tips will create a drop in pressure while still producing larger droplets. 

Your actions can affect spray drift. After all, you CAN control the equipment you use and the field conditions you spray. So while you may not have control over the weather or even the neighboring property, you can be empowered by these 5 easy steps to manage spray drift and you have the opportunity to educate your team, too.

Plumbing Your Sprayer the Right Way

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Thu, Jul 31, 2014

The primary goal when you’re plumbing a sprayer pump is to route liquid from the pump to the spray nozzle with as little restriction as possible. By minimizing restrictions you’ll achieve the pump’s maximum rated capacity. For purposes of this blog post we’ll share how to plumb your sprayer the right way when using a diaphragm pump.

Quick side note, as you probably know the type of pump you use makes a difference when it comes to proper plumbing. Diaphragm, piston and roller pumps are all types of positive displacement pumps, whereas a centrifugal pump is the most common non-positive displacement pump. When you’re looking at positive displacement pumps the output is proportional to speed and independent of pressure, but when we use a centrifugal or non-positive displacement pump the output is influenced by pressure. So needless to say, plumbing on these two types is different.

Now that we’re all on the same page, for the best performance of your sprayer with a diaphragm pump and hose reel, follow these 10 steps and you’ll be well on your way to maximizing pump performance and efficiency:

Hypro diaphragm pump diagram

  1. Place the outlet fitting in lowest point in the tank.
  2. Connect a ball valve to the outlet tee (or elbow) so you can turn off the flow in case you need to service the pump or check the line strainer.
  3. Include a line strainer between the tank and the pump to prevent debris from clogging the pump, relief valve, gun and nozzle.
  4. Tank outlet fitting, elbow, suction line, and strainer should be one pipe size larger than the suction port of the pump. Suction line should be reinforced, so it does not collapse, but flexible so it absorbs pulsation. Clear suction line helps you see air bubbles if there is air entering the system.
  5. Although diaphragm pumps prime well, try to position the pump lower than the tank for gravity feed.
  6. Most diaphragm pumps include a “control unit” consisting of a relief valve, multiple discharge ports with ball valves, and a pressure gauge. It can be mounted on the pump or remote mounted. If a remote mount is used do not put a shutoff valve between the pump and the control unit.
  7. Connect the relief valve bypass port with an unrestricted line to the top of the tank, venting to atmospheric pressure. Do not put a shutoff valve in this line. Do not connect the bypass line to the agitator. Restrictions may prevent the relief valve from bypassing properly and so causing damage to the pump.
  8. Connect one of the discharge lines to the agitator(s). You may use a ball valve in this line to throttle the flow.
  9. Connect one of the discharge lines to the inlet swivel on the hose reel. You may use a ball valve in this line. Do not use hard plumbing when connecting the discharge line to the hose reel swivel.
  10. Connect the gun.

Additional considerations:

  • A minimum number of elbows, fittings, and valves should be used to reduce pressure losses. These should also be sized properly to prevent flow restrictions.
  • Hoses should be the same size as the pump’s suction and discharge port. A straight run of 10 times the suction hose diameter is recommended prior to the pump inlet. For example: 1.5” hose diameter = 15” of straight hose.
  • An agitation flow rate of 5% of the tank capacity is recommended for most chemicals. A higher rate of 10% is suggested for wettable powders and materials difficult to keep in suspension. See the chart below for common tank sizes.
Tank Capacity 5% 10%
500 gallons 25 gpm 50 gpm
750 gallons 37 gpm 75 gpm
1000 gallons 50 gpm 100 gpm

6 Reasons Why You Need Drift Control Spray Tips

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Jul 16, 2014

Contributed by Guest Blogger: Mark Techler, Factory Representative - Hypro & SHURflo Ag and Industrial Pumps and Accessories
Hypro air inducing spray tip


Spray tips
are the smallest and most overlooked components of a sprayer. Drift control spray tips use air induction to produce air filled droplets, which dramatically reduce drift compared to conventional tips. Here are the benefits: 

  1. Reduce off target spray. Your neighbors don’t want your ag chemicals on their property.
  2. Improve efficacy. It is estimated that 30% of conventionally sprayed droplets drift off target, land on the ground, or evaporate (leaving the active ingredient inert). Reduce that drift to 2% and achieve better results.
  3. Improve coverage. Air filled droplets stick to their target while conventional droplets may bounce off. When the air bubbles break the surface tension of the droplet, the spray material becomes more dispersed on the target.  
  4. Improve spray quality. The chemical label shows a droplet size category, which can vary from extremely fine to ultra coarse, at which the product must be applied for optimum results. Air induction tips produce more consistent droplet diameters than conventional tips.
  5. Save money. With improved efficacy and coverage you may require less chemical and less water to finish the job. With improved efficacy and coverage likely you will only need to spray once, saving money and time.
  6. Be environmentally responsible. Keep herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers confined to their targets and out of drinking water supplies and the aquifer.

Before you buy any spray tips, it is also important to know:

  1. Your spray technique: broadcast or banding
  2. Sprayer speed (in mph)
  3. Tip spacing (20 inches, etc.)
  4. Application rate (from chemical label)
  5. Spray tip flow rate (GPA or GPM)
  6. Spray pattern: flat fan or cone
  7. Spray quality (fine, medium, coarse, etc. from chemical label)

Armed with this information, use the Hypro SprayIT Calculator to select drift reduction tips. Hypro has designed this online calculator to make it easy to select the proper spray tip for your application. Given the information we just covered, all you need to do is select the type of application and input your specific application data and the calculator with do the rest.
