Most agricultural chemicals are applied with sprayers. Sprayers are used with liquid solutions or suspensions. Sprayers should be constructed of materials that can tolerate the type of product used; some products may be more abrasive than others may.

Components of a Sprayer

-          Electronic Systems; with the advancements in technology today, new systems have been established to improve application. These systems are capable of monitoring and guiding the sprayers in a variety of ways; some sense the location in the field, travel speed, and the total flow of spray to the boom; some systems tell the nozzle flow, the area covered, the total volume sprayed, and the amount left in the tank.

-          Hoses; choose from neoprene, rubber or plastic hoses; ensure they have these qualities – have a burst strength greater than the highest operating pressure, have a working pressure at least equal to the highest operating pressure, resist harsh or corrosive effects of oil, solvents and pesticide product and formulations used, and are weather resistant.

-          Pressure Regulator; protects sprayers from damage due to excess pressure.

-          Pump; most frequently used are roller, piston and centrifugal pumps. When selecting a pump, be sure to be thinking about the pressure ranges the pump can handle and the gallons per minute the pump can source. A faintly oversized pump will guarantee the relief valve will operate and get the job done.

-          Tanks; should be constructed of stainless steel or fiberglass. Should the tank be made of mild steel, it will need a protective lining or coating. The tank should have a large opening for easy filling and cleaning, as well as a large drain and a gauge to show liquid level.

How to Clean Sprayers

-          Check the pesticide label for any detailed cleaning instructions.

-          Drain all pesticide solution from the sprayer. Save & reuse.

-          Flush the sprayer with clean water.

-          Fill the sprayer with water plus one cup of trisodium phosphate or household ammonia for each 10 gallons of water.

-          Wash the tank and pump parts by running the sprayer for about five minutes with the nozzles closed.

-          Is possible, let the cleaning mixture soak in the sprayer overnight.

-          Release the mixture from the tank, freeing some through the nozzles.

-          Always flush a new sprayer with clean water before you use it. If your sprayer won’t be used for a while, cover the exposed metal parts with light oil to avert rust.
