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.

Choosing The Right Spray Gun

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Jun 24, 2015

In the past, we've talked about the importance of selecting the right spray tip for your application. Since spray tips and spray guns go hand in hand it is only appropriate that spray guns also get their fifteen minutes of fame. After all, ensuring that you are using the right one will improve your spraying efficiency. When choosing a spray gun consider the following: 

Fluid Pressure: Check the psi rating of your pump and make sure that your chosen gun meets or exceeds the same rating to ensure proper pressure.

Flow Rate: The gallons per minute (gpm) rating is also important to keep in mind. Nozzles, pressure, and flow rate all need to work together so the sprayer can work at its full capacity.

Type of project: The type of application will determine the type of gun better suited for your project. Some spray guns, like our standard GreensMaster JD9-C*, can be used for multiple purposes such as spraying trees and shrubs. However, If you are spraying very tall trees, using a root feeder, spraying big distances, lawn or other specific applications then you might choose other better-suited spray guns.

These are three of our most popular spray guns:

Choosing a spray gun can quickly become a daunting task so let our Customer Service Technicians simplify this decision by matching your sprayer with the best gun option for your application.

Choose the Right Roller Pump

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Nov 12, 2014

Hypro roller pumpChoosing the right roller pump for your sprayer and application needs can be tricky. After all, the pump is the heart of the sprayer and roller pumps are the top all-around choice for agriculture and industrial spraying. This includes turf spraying of herbicides and pesticides, liquid fertilizers and many other liquids. These spray pumps have a low initial cost and are pretty versatile too. Still, there’s no one solution that meets everyone’s needs making the search for the best solution at times mystifying.

Before we get into the nitty gritty, it’s important to note the basics. A roller pump has 4 to 8 rollers depending on the model, that revolve inside the pump housing to force the spray solution out to the nozzle. These pumps operate at PTO speeds of 540 and 1000 rpm – a definite point to note for choosing the right pump. Roller pumps have a pressure range up to 300 psi and flow rates up to 74 gpm. These products are self-priming and easily adapt to PTO or gas engine drives. These pumps require no check valves while providing positive displacement characteristics. Got it? Good. Now let’s get into choosing the right roller pump.

Consider this real-life scenario that one of our customers shared with us:

“I bought a used 55 gallon tank sprayer with wand and boom for spraying weeds and fire control. It had a 4 roller pump on it that quit/froze a year and a half ago. I replaced with another 4 roller pump and this spring it froze again. The sprayer has a 3hp Briggs motor with a 5/8'' shaft. I would like to know if I can use a larger pump and/or what you would suggest.”

Know the answer? If not, take a look at the steps below for easy identification of the roller pump that will meet your needs. Or skip ahead and check out the solution for this particular scenario.

3 Steps for Pump Selection:

1.) Determine your highest spraying pressure (psi).

For spray guns, 40 psi is often typical at the nozzle, but to properly select a pump that can deliver the right spray pressure, you should calculate it yourself. Keep in mind that pressure losses are normal and should be factored into the equation. It’s recommended that you add 120 psi for system pressure losses.

Desired Pressure at Nozzle (psi)
+ Hose Pressure Loss (psi)
Total Pump Pressure Needed (psi)

2.) Calculate the total pump flow (gpm) using the formula below.

Now you’ll need to know the boom flow and agitation for that calculation. You can determine your boom flow (gpm) by multiplying the gpm per nozzle by the number of nozzles. The flow required for agitation is a little easier as that is determined by tank size. For a 500-gallon tank you’re looking at 25gpm, 750-gallon tank will be 37 gpm, 1,000-gallon tank at 50 gpm and 1,500-gallon tank at 75 gpm.  

Boom Flow (gpm)  
+ Agitation (gpm)
Total Pump Flow (gpm)

3.) Choose the pump based on the manufacturer’s catalog performance charts.

Sounds simple, but in addition to the numbers you just crunched you’ll also want to keep chemical compatibility in mind. Specific seal, roller and casting materials can be selected for compatibility with certain herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers. The three housing material options – Cast Iron such as the Delavan line, Ni-Resist or Silver (for these purposes we’ll be referring to Hypro’s Silver Series XL roller pumps) – are particularly important for total pump life. Studies have shown, especially with weed control chemicals such as Roundup that the Silver Series XL line is more durable and affords a 10x longer pump life.

Now back to our example. This customer had a standard gas engine without gear reduction. In that case, the best solution was to replace the pump with another 4 roller pump (product 4101C) and keep an eye on maintenance for better long-term wear. Another solution would have been to use a different model, but that would have resulted in purchasing a gear reduced engine. In the long run, this customer was better off just replacing the pump with the same model.
