5 things to look for on a back pack sprayer

 

Are you confused over small garden sprayer options?

How do you confidently decide which back pack sprayer is your ‘total cost of ownership’? Do you include longevity, serviceability, cost of down time due to poor quality and unreasonable component breakage and wear?

In this industry – getting what you pay for is very relevant  – and the old adage of “the cheapest will do” will usually bite you – hard!

Especially with manually operated sprayers.

So smarten up now.

Here’s some common sense advice when searching for a good quality back pack sprayer.

  1. Check the industry standard for which brands are common to say City Council use, contractor use, property maintenance company usage etc Continue reading

How to increase bio-security for packhouses, orchards and farms

 

Vehicular traffic to your property can increase risk of disease transfer.

This can be a threat to your agricultural or horticultural business!

These include contractors, transport vehicles, or your own vehicle(s)

1. Have you considered what a possible infestation or bio-security risk would cost you in real money?

2. Is it time to assess your threat level?

  • Check the number of entry ports onto your property and visits made on a daily or weekly basis.
  • Check where your visitors have come from, the previous properties visited before yours.
  • Check the cleanliness of the visitor vehicles, open deck or closed deck trucks and trailers, visible soil loadings on       ledges, horizontal surfaces, is the soil wet or dry, is there build up of dirt and residue  in crevices and   undercarriages?
  • Check for current disease alerts for transportable and/or contagious threats relevant to your enterprise.

 

3.  Consider the solution to suit your site:

 

Options for vehicle bio-security treatment include;

  • Self-contained vehicular spray treatment system at the entry to your property. A drive through system capable of  automatically sensing the vehicle and applying the exact volume of disinfectant sanitizer on the exterior surfaces.
  • Spray gun and hose located at the entry for manual spray treatment by the vehicle driver/operator.
  • Daily pressure clean of vehicles with dosed with sanitizer by the driver /operator.
  • Pressure clean and sanitize related handling equipment such as loaders and forklifts.

How to control dust

Spray Pump Services have installed a number of fogging applications for dust control, heat and odour mitigation.

We engineer custom systems for each application to maximize efficiency.

Our Mist Monster fan assist foggers can control dust in large open environments.

They offer protection against toxic contaminants made airborne by transfer, hazardous dust that limits vision and breathing.

They target dust emanation hot spots reducing injury risk to personnel in busy environments.

See how Mist Monsters work on –

Easy boat wash system

Want to save time, effort and water? Then check this out!

Earlier this year Spray Pump Services designed and supplied the core equipment for a boat rinse-off system.

The brief was to provide enough force to remove evaporated salt water residue and loose organic matter from the exterior surfaces – without manual hosing or chemicals.

It provides a controlled efficient and quick rinse down with minimum water volume and boosted pressure with no damage to the surfaces being treated.

Initially hot water was also considered to dissolve the salt rapidly, but sufficient pressure and ambient temperature water achieved the desired result.

The client was satisfied with his investment and the project was a success.

See it work on  boatwash – YouTube

Spray Pump Services provide the pressure solutions required for vehicles, boats, plant and machinery – for manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic applications.

We utilize pressure, volume and nozzle technology to save you resources and time.

That’s why care should be taken when adding a drain or boundary spraying accessory to your sprayer.

  • For drain treatment you may consider the following features:

Central nozzle alignment (over centre of the drain) and as low as possible

Anti-drift nozzle style with anti-drip nozzle body mount

Fast action spray valve – preferably solenoid operated

Easily managed spray boom arm, front end loader attachment is good!

Glyphosate is the only recommended product for this application!

How water blasting saves time and money!

Its simple really, time is money for most people.

Its a double win – win when you save both, or a double lose – lose when you don’t.

So how do you plan for your next water blast job or contract?

By matching the equipment with the work for profitability – its a no-brainer!

If the job requires 4000 psi and 30 litres per minute, why would you want less than that – do you actually want to be uneconomic – of course you don’t!

In fact why not have margin for reliability and speed, you wouldn’t risk a ‘just enough’ plant and equipment to provide your next meal would you?

You will never regret having more than enough power to make your customers confident.

From 2000psi to 40,000psi, Spray Pump Services provides industrial water blast solutions. Select the pumps and accessories to achieve your work rate from Spray Pump Services.

*Apart from the stress it can cause, the economic ramifications can be colossal!

*Then there’s the frustration of deciding how to combat this threat.

*So… how are you going to deal with this problem?

Do you want a serious wheel and underbody wash?

A couple of years ago we assisted in the installation of a wheel wash system.

It was for a mining contracting company with a history of difficult to remove vehicle clay dropping onto public roads.

A succession of drive through system wheel wash styles were used over several years.

Some worked better than others but the performance wasn’t quite there!

The offending clay was particularly stubborn to remove.

We settled on a design to convert the maximum available power to solving this question.

We installed a heavy duty pump with a potent combination of high impact static and rotating nozzles.

The clients attention to heavy duty construction also paid off well!

See for yourself!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG67-Fi5A-Q

Key requirements are:

  • Have sufficient power available for the site, we use 50 Hp pumps
  • Have sufficient clean water available for daily use, we use 3 X 30000L tanks
  • Ensure approach and egress are easily negotiated
  • Ensure operational management is sound – regular waste content removal
  • Simple control and valve operation

The client is now satisfied with this systems performance as it fully addresses the problem.

We specialize in applying water power for solutions.
