Maintenance to prolong the life of the sprayers.

prolong the life of your sprayerAll of our manual sprayers can be used with herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. In addition, our industrial sprayers can be used with diverse chemical products, petroleum derivatives, dilute acids, etc.

After each use, release the pressure in the sprayer and clean it with water.

If the nozzle becomes blocked, clean it with water; do not poke metal objects into it. If the filter in the handle becomes blocked, remove it and clean it with water.

Store the sprayer under cover, avoiding freezing temperatures and extreme heat. (Between 5º and 30ºC).

To prolong the life of the seals, occasionally apply a little oil or grease to the moving parts.

Follow the instructions and the dosages recommended by manufacturers on the product labels.Always follow the instructions and the dosages recommended by manufacturers on the product labels applied.

When using insecticides or fungicides, use the adjustable conical nozzle at a pressure of 2 to 3 bar. Spraying will be more efficient with a fine spray, since this reaches all parts of the crops treated, including the backs of their leaves.

When spraying herbicides, use a herbicide nozzle at a pressure of 1 to 1.5 bar to avoid spraying onto adjacent areas.

Note: if the same sprayer is used for herbicides and for insecticides or fungicides, wash the entire sprayer, including hoses and tubes, before and after each treatment.
