Understanding the parts and features of your sprayer is important, and since it's common to use the same spray equipment for a variety of applications, it's important to understand the various sprayer parts and the way they work. Whether it is because your next job requires your sprayer be outfitted with certain features, or it’s because you are trying to find a replacement or an upgrade, understanding your sprayer's parts and components is the key to getting the most out of your equipment.
What is a Chemical Eductor?
Simply put, a chemical eductor is an attachment that includes a hopper and the correct connecting equipment to allow your sprayer to mix liquid and dry chemicals. It's a mixing station for safe loading of chemicals into spray tanks. While it's typically used in agricultural applications, sprayer systems that use chemical eductors can be useful in many industries. Typically, in agricultural applications, chemical eductors allow for the mixing of multi-component pesticide sprays, the combination of water and fertilizer, and a variety of other applications.
Not only do eductors reduce environmental risks and minimize operator hazards, they offer a self-contained mixing system that allows applicators to mix dry or liquid chemicals quickly and safely. Any time the need for handling dangerous chemicals can be eliminated, the risk of hazardous spills is reduced.
Choosing the Right Chemical Eductor
There are a couple of great options from Hypro that fit standard sprayer systems. The 3375P-05T5 model is the larger of the two, and it sports a 5.5 gallon hopper with a robust nozzle that rinses cleanly, so you know that your chemicals mix well and flush cleanly. The 3375-P05T4, on the other hand, features a smaller 4.5 gallon hopper for greater maneuverability. One of our highly-trained Customer Service Technicians can help determine which one is right for your needs. Just call 800-228-0905.
