Product Highlight: PowerPro Engines

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Jun 01, 2016

Hypro manufacturers its own line of small commercial gas engines called PowerPro™. These gasoline engines are suitable for a variety of agricultural, industrial, and lawn & garden applications. Like all of the top quality spray equipment brands we sell, these engines are factory-tested to ensure quality and performance ratings. Another great benefit is Hypro’s warranty on this engine, so your purchase is protected from any manufacturer defect from purchase date to a year.

PowerPro™ engines come in different models. Hypro’s wide selection of engines ensures you will be able to find the ideal one for your spray equipment. Available in 2.5, 5.5, 6.5, and 13 horsepower models, they can handle a wide range of applications. The engines can be coupled with different hypro pumps, including centrifugal, roller, and diaphragm pumps. This added benefit makes it easy for you to configure your current equipment or custom-build a sprayer to include a pump/engine assembly for even more power!

Thanks to our friends at Hypro, and their extensive educational resources, we've put together a quick reference guide to help you take care of your PowerPro™ engine:

1. Before first use, please ensure you use SAE10W-30 oil. The engine is not shipped with oil so you must add it before starting it.
2. Choose unleaded gasoline to operate the engine.
3. For a new engine, replace engine oil every first month or after 20 hours of operation. After the first oil change, replace it every 6 months or after 100 hours of operation.
4. Clean valve, combustion chamber, fuel tank, fuel filter and fuel supply line each year or after 300 hours of operation.
5. Clean the deposit cup every season or after 50 hours of operation.

You can refer to the breakdown below to get familiar with every part of the engine:

Product Highlight: Hypro Centrifugal Pumps

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Apr 11, 2016

Centrifugal pumps are high flow, low-pressure pumps that can deliver pressure ratings of anywhere from 0 to 150 psi and flow rates up to 440 gpm. How exactly do centrifugal pumps work? Well, if you are feeling a bit technical, here’s a simple explanation: On a centrifugal pump, the liquid enters through the middle into an impeller that forces the liquid into the outlet of the pump.

Centrifugal pumps are known to be heavy-duty and durable due to their fewer parts and minimum wear surfaces. Another great feature is they are easy to clean and maintain.

They can be used in a variety of applications including agricultural and industrial spraying. They come in different materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, and even polypropylene, making them capable of handling a variety of liquids and chemicals. They are mostly used with water, insecticides, herbicides, wettable powders, emulsives, and liquid fertilizers just to name a few. Some centrifugal pumps, specifically those made from polypropylene, can handle acids and other corrosive liquids.

Centrifugal pumps can be powered by different methods, the most common include


Series 9000 - 9400 Belt-Driven Centrifugal Pumps

This series is specifically designed for easy use with tractor mounted sprayers. They can handle big, high-capacity spraying jobs with ease and are easy to install/uninstall.

Pressure ratings: 62 - 104 psi

Flow rate: 82 - 140 gpm

Speed: 600 or 1000 rpm

Gas Engine

Series 1500 Gas Engine-Driven Centrifugal Pumps

As their name describes, this series can be mounted onto a gas engine. They are available with or without a mounting base for easy and secure installation depending on your engine. Need a pump that can tackle more than just spraying? Fill tanks, water seed beds and transfer liquids fast and efficiently with Hypro’s centrifugal pumps.

Pressure ratings: 65 - 140 psi

Flow rate: 98 - 150 gpm


Hydraulic Motor

Series 9300 Hydraulically-Driven Centrifugal Pumps

Hypro Hydraulically-driven pumps are capable of achieving high speeds while providing smooth performance. One of their advantages is that they can be easily mounted on a tractor or sprayer.  Another great feature is Hypro's "close-coupled" design which saves space on your set-up by 

Pressure ratings: 120 - 180 psi

Flow rate: 100 - 214 gpm

Hydraulic ports: 1/2" NPT inlet, 3/4" NPT tank

There are a lot of other options when it comes to spray pumps, each better-suited for a variety of applications. Stay tuned for future posts on how to service and troubleshoot your Hypro centrifugal pump, so don't forget to subscribe to our blog.
