Product Highlight: Shurflo Pumps

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Apr 18, 2017

At Sprayer Depot, we carry all the brands you know and trust, including pump brands Hypro, Banjo, Udor, Comet, Myers, CDS-John Blue, Ace, Delavan, Du-All and more.  In this post, we'll go beyond the basics with SHURFLO® pumps. For all your spraying needs, big jobs or small, SHURFLO® has a pump that will get the task done. 

SHURFLO® 2088 Series diaphragm pumps deliver reliable performance in high flow, moderate pressure applications. These pumps are great for some of your more heavy duty jobs like agricultural spraying or transfer of vast amounts of fluid. Shurflo-2088-Pump.jpgThe great part is that they are designed for lots of use and are easy to maintain. They are designed with a corrosion-resistant framework and made with chemical-resistant materials so you can reliably pump the fluids you need to without worrying about damage to your equipment. They can be mounted in any position and come with a pump body that is fully repairable. What happens if you accidentally leave it running until the fluid runs dry? Nothing! These have been tested to run dry without damage to the integrity of the pump! 

The 8000 Series diaphragm pump is SHURFLO®'s most widely used industrial pump. It is widely used in the agricultural and landscaping industries because it can deliver up to 1.8 GPM (6.8 l/min) providing maximum performance in a wide range of applications. These pumps are designed to provide consistent, dependable performance no matter what position you mount them in or how much you intend to use them. They are self-priming and maintain pressures up to 150 PSI. They come standard with an automatic demand switch and a built-in check valve. Like the 2088 series, these can also run dry without damage to the pump. 

The SLV pump offers tremendous value for low-volume spraying needs. It is extremely cost-effective if you have a smaller sized job to do. SLVAA40-Thumb.jpgIts compact size makes it ideal for transportation to off-site jobs and has an extremely low power consumption. Like other SHURFLO® pumps, it too, is chemically resistant to prevent corrosion and breakage of essential equipment. It is also self-priming, but at a much shorter distance than the 8000 series.  

You can learn more about these SHURFLO® pumps on our website or contact our customer service department to answer any questions you may have at 800-228-0905.

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.

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.

hypro_rollerpumps-149259-edited.png

For those of you unfamiliar with this type of pump, Hypro Roller Pumps come in three different materials: Cast Iron, Ni-Resist, and Silver Series XL. They are compatible with a variety of liquids and chemicals, require no check valves and are budget friendly.

Before performing any type of maintenance make sure you follow these safety measures:

  • Pump should be disconnected from its electrical, hydraulic, shaft driven, or gas engine power source.
  • Do not perform service or maintenance to the pump, or attached components, until the pump unit is below 109°F (43°C). 
  • When handling Hypro pumps, wear steel-toed shoes and protective gloves in order to protect your feet and hands. Eye protection should also be worn.
  • Any hazardous liquids should be disposed of in a manner which complies with local and national regulations. Never dump fluids onto the ground.
Cleaning your roller pump after every use is easy and will prevent downtime. Flush the pump with a neutralizing solution depending on the liquid just pumped. Follow this with a clean rinse using fresh water. Don't forget to wipe down the pump after each use to prevent deposits from forming and damaging it.

When you are ready to store your pump for a long period of time, make sure to drain it thoroughly. Open any drain plugs, remove the suction hose and blow it dry with air. An antifreeze/rust inhibitor should be injected into the pump before both ports are plugged and the pump is stored. Plug all ports to keep out air until pump is used again.

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.

Get additional information on winterizing your sprayer with this step-by-step guide.

Your Sprayer Needs an Oil Change Too

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.

For those of you unfamiliar with this product, Hypro diaphragm pumps come with oil in the crankcase. Unlike your vehicle, accessing oil in the crankcase take a little more effort.

The manufacturer recommends changing oil after 40 hours of break-in operation and then every three months or 500 hours, whichever comes first. So this means that you should change the oil in this particular model at least four times a year, if not more. Now Hypro recommends using its own brand of oil for this model - Hypro Oil (part number 2160-0038) is specially formulated, high-grade, nondetergent, SAE 30 weight oil designed to prolong pump life. 

Now that we have that covered, let’s talk about the three steps to changing the oil in your spray pump.

Step 1. After you’re done with your sprayer for the day, flush the pump with clean water.

Step 2. To drain the oil from the pump, remove the oil drain plug and rotate the shaft until the oil stops flowing out. If you have time to open the pump and inspect the diaphragms, now is a good time, but not mandatory.

Step 3. To fill the pump with oil, slowly pour the oil into the sight tube while turning the pump shaft. Turning the pump shaft purges all the air out of the crankcase. So you won’t have to deal with air bubbles or a less than full amount of oil. If you do decide to replace the diaphragms, always change the oil.

Part Number 66 is the Oil Drain Plug

One quick note, for winter storage, which we’ll get into later here on the blog, or if you encounter freezing conditions, flush the pump with a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. 

Lastly, keep in mind that most manufacturers recommend changing the oil in your pump every year, if not sooner. We’d actually go as far as to say that it’s highly recommended that the oil be changed at both the start and the end of the sprayer season so that any contaminants entering the crankcase can be removed before sitting in the pump all winter and that you get rid of any buildup from the off season.

How To Build the Perfect Custom Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Sep 05, 2014

Kings Sprayer 100/50 Dual Tank Skid Sprayer

When we say we know sprayers, it’s true. Our team builds more than 500 custom sprayers each year for customers looking to modify or completely reconfigure the makeup of this important tool. After all, you don’t have to settle for less than perfect in the sprayer world. Just turn to our Sprayer Depot knowledgeable customer service technicians with your ideas and < bam > the perfect custom sprayer is born. Here we’ll take a look at some of the common modifications to a few of our best selling sprayer models from Kings Sprayers.

You might be wondering if Sprayer Depot can modify one of the existing sprayers manufactured from Kings Sprayers. In a word, YES! Whether it’s adding more hose, swapping out the pump, or modifying the entire unit to your specific needs, Sprayer Depot can make it happen. We talked to operations manager David Herrera who mentioned “one of our biggest strengths is that we can get creative to solve space issues by creating custom frames and thinking outside the box.” Let’s take a closer look at a few scenarios as described by David:

One common customization is the dual tank setup (pictured above). Sometimes customers want two tanks so they can have chemicals in one tank and fresh water in the other, or another common scenario is having a need to spray two different chemicals while out on the job. We can make that happen within almost any parameter needed.

Another unique customization we created at the request of a customer is depicted in the same image above where you’ll notice that the hose reel is turned to the side. This is popular with the skid sprayer units in particular because the skid sprayer is usually in the bed of a pickup truck. It can be more convenient for the operator to have the hose dispatched from the passenger side when spraying lawns and shrubs. 

Gator Kings SprayersAnother example is  this custom Gator Kings Sprayers model. This skid sprayer unit fits into the back of a Gator utility vehicle. We had a customer request for a 100-gallon tank with a specific pump, engine, and hose reel. Given the standard way we build our skids, there was no way we could fit what the customer wanted in his Gator. So we got creative by using a low profile tank and designed a custom frame so that all of the components could be mounted above the tank. This is one of the most direct examples of how our team can creatively solve a problem a customer might have encountered with a standard off-the-shelf sprayer.

Below are a few of the most common modifications that can turn a stock sprayer into a custom model ideal for your needs:

  • Change the manual hose reel to an electric version
  • Add more hose to the hose reel
  • Change the standard spray gun to something else
  • Swap in a larger tank
  • Change the gas engine to electric start
  • Modify the orientation of the tank on the frame
  • Change the sprayer pump to a different manufacturer’s pump
  • Add another line on the suction side

So, what modifications would you love to improve your sprayer?

3 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Pump from Sprayer Depot

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Aug 20, 2014

You’re on the market for a new spray pump. You have a pretty clear idea of what you need. After all, nine times out of ten it’s a replacement pump that’s on its last leg and in need of replacing. Not an easy pill to swallow when you have to buy one of the most vital parts for your sprayer. But where do you start?

Does this scenario sound familiar? Since we're more focused on your needs than your wallet, here we’ll share three foolproof tips to get you the best product for your needs at the best price. 

Tip #1: Inventory
Whether you’re in the market for a diaphragm pump, roller pump, centrifugal pump, piston pump, transfer or plunger pump, find a retailer that covers the spectrum with a variety of brands on hand for sale. Look for a retailer that carries major sprayer pump brands like Hypro, Udor, Comet, Banjo, Myers and SHURflo, to name a few. Since not all brands manufacture all pump types, at Sprayer Depot you’ll find a better selection for your needs and a more knowledgeable team to answer any questions. Sprayer Depot carries all the major brands for practically every type of spray pump at the best price.

Tip #2: Price Matching
Speaking of price, don’t be afraid to shop around. You’ll find out more about the product you’re looking for from kicking the proverbial tires at a few shops before settling on one. That will also give you a chance to scope out who has the best pricing policy – for example Sprayer Depot will match any competitor’s price (must be an authorized dealer/distributor). We strive to offer the lowest price on all major spray pump brands, but if you happen to find a lower advertised price from an authorized distributor, Sprayer Depot will match or beat that price! When you’re shopping for a part like a pump you know your going to have to spend a pretty penny so why not get the best deal.

Tip #3: Customer Service
You’re a pro so the customer service team from any retailer won’t show you how to do your job, but they can offer some insight into the latest tricks of the trade. At Sprayer Depot, our knowledgeable customer service technicians have more than 55 years of combined experience in the industry. Many of them have worked their way into the role through production jobs building the very sprayer you use today. So they know their stuff and speak your language. Plus, they’re not sales guys aiming to make commission – they genuinely enjoy what they do and strive to assist folks in finding the product that’s best for their needs.

So the next time you’re in the market for a spray pump, or really anything for your sprayer equipment, remember to consider inventory, price match policies and customer service. Better yet, just give the guys at Sprayer Depot a call or visit the online store. You’ll be in good hands.

Common Causes of Pump Failure

Posted by Marketing Manager on Fri, Mar 21, 2014

Contributed by Guest Blogger:  John Lang, Hypro

Three Steps to Prevent Pump Failure

Your pump can fail or become inoperative when left dormant for long periods of time. The elastomeric (rubber) components, when left in a compressed state, will take a “set”. When this happens the rubber components deform to their compressed state  over time and don’t properly respond when brought back into service. The rubber components are also susceptible to “drying out” when stored without liquid in them. The elastomers don’t actually dry out but some chemistries that have come in contact with the elastomer can react with air and become hard and brittle.  To prevent these types of failure during seasonal storage perform these three operations.  
 Hypro Pump
  1. Adequately flush the pump and solution system to remove all residue of chemicals. Check the label of the chemicals used for recommendation on what agent should be used to best clean and neutralize the sprayer components.
  2. To prevent oxidation of components it is always good practice to fill solution system components with some form of antifreeze and spray a small volume through the system (from tank to nozzle). This procedure will prevent elastomer components from “drying out”.
  3. Leave regulators and unloaders in a loose or open state so that they don’t stick on startup and fail the pump.

Kings 3 Point Hitch SprayerGet it Ready

When pulling the sprayer out and getting it ready for operation be aware that the pump is dependent upon the proper functioning of the system components. Perform these three steps to check the system out before going to full on operation.
  • Check maintenance schedule for pump. The best time for maintenance is before the season begins when the system is clear of hazardous chemicals.
  • Cycle unloader valves and pressure regulators to be sure they are not stuck in place. If you feel the component is not free perform service on the component.
  • Check pump to see that it is not stuck. If the pump is driven by a mechanical drive, rotate the pump by hand to check that pump is free. An electrical driven pump that has a closed couple drive should be run in short bursts to determine that pump operating as expected. Always set the sprayer to a low pressure setting for initial startup and check sprayer for leaky joints.
Performing these simple checks early can help you achieve the timeliness of your application when it is needed.

Is it time to replace your Roller Pump?

Posted by Marketing Manager on Fri, Jan 10, 2014

Is it time to replace your Roller Pump?

We receive a lot of calls from customers who want to repair their broken or damaged Roller Pump. Here are some things to consider:
  • Before buying and installing a repair kit for your Roller Pump, be sure that the housing of the pump is in good condition. 
  • If the housing of the pump is worn, new rollers won't be able to create enough pressure to move water through the pump. While you can purchase the pump housing as a replacement part, it is often more cost effective to buy a brand new pump.  
  • If you're not sure, take the pump apart, and send a picture to one of our Customer Service Technicians for help.
