Maintaining and Servicing Your Roller Pump

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Nov 16, 2015

Your pump will last longer and perform at its best if you keep up with routine service. How often should you maintain your pump will depend on how often you use it and the type of liquid being pumped. However, there are general guidelines that the manufacturer recommends should be followed to properly maintain your pump.

Hypro Roller Pumps are some of our most popular pumps. They are used across different industries such as pest control, weed control, horticulture and other agricultural applications.

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Oct 22, 2014

We get it. There’s a ton on your plate and often some maintenance practices, like changing the oil in your sprayer, can fall by the wayside. Our technicians often get asked how often we recommend changing the oil in a pump crankcase. Of course, we defer to manufacturer recommendations, but thought it might be helpful to run through the process with one of our more popular pumps, the Hypro D30 Diaphragm Pump, especially as the sprayer season winds down.

Strainers: A Sprayer Companion

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Jul 18, 2014

One piece of equipment that is often overlooked is the strainer. Here we will dive into the importance of the strainer, or, as it is sometimes referred more simply, filters or screens. No matter what you call it, strainers are very important to reduce clogging, excessive erosion of spray tips and consistent fluid circulation of your sprayer equipment. As the name alludes, this part strains or filters debris to ensure even uninterrupted flow.

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


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.
