Are you thinking of buying an electric sprayer for your business? If you already have a garden sprayer but want something more powerful, or if you’re just buying one for your own home, you might want to consider a new electric sprayer. Many consumers are choosing to go “green” and try to reduce their impact on the environment. In addition, electric-powered garden tools are more convenient and efficient than gas-powered counterparts. Ultimately, the right tool can save you money while increasing productivity and reducing your ecological impact – all at the same time.
Electric sprayer technology has been around for some time. However, relatively recent inventions have made the product much more convenient and efficient. The most recent innovation in electric sprayer technology is the direct-vent valve system. This breakthrough allows you to reduce the number of vents that would be necessary to operate the sprayer. This means that more canisters can be stored in the canister without taking up valuable room. The invention also improves the flow rate and reduces backwash and drips that could lead to safety hazards.
Another recent invention in the realm of the sprayer is the jet valve system. The jet valve system makes use of a series of small jetting chambers to mix a concentrated chemicals solution into a spray. The jetting chambers also help to disperse the chemicals throughout the canister. This invention helps to make spraying times more consistent and less subject to error. Also, because it uses only a fraction of the fuel of a comparable old style canister-based sprayer, it’s more cost effective and environmentally friendly.
A newer type of sprayer nozzle, called the screw-top tip, is gaining popularity because of its efficiency and ease of use. A well-known sprayer producer, JML, Inc., uses a screw-top nozzle in their popular Craftsman Series of sprayers. This innovation has a unique mechanism that differs from other jet tip systems in that there is a second threaded rod that attaches directly to the sprayer’s motor. Once the spray button is pressed, this second rod expands outward until it creates an airtight seal with the nozzle assembly. When the sprayer is then turned on, it directs a stream of compressed air through the system creating a fine mist that carries the liquid to all corners of the room or area that has to be cleaned.
In addition to new inventions, older systems have also been replaced by newer electric sprayers. One example is the Dandelion Smart Pump, an innovation by a company that was once known as Dandelion Oil. The original company, now known simply as Dandelion, was the number one provider of steam cleaning for residential customers. Although the new pump is not a direct competitor to Dandelion’s existing products, it does have a number of advantages that Dandelion customers will likely appreciate.
For one thing, an electric pump system may be less expensive than an equivalent tank cleaning method, especially when it comes to larger industrial applications. The second advantage is that the sprayer eliminates the need to use a bulky, unsightly tank that holds the sprayer’s product. With the new system, no additional containers are needed to hold the liquid. A standard sprayer is simply attached to the hose at the desired location and the liquid is automatically expelled into a container that can be disposed of in any garbage container. Some systems require the user to refill the container with a fresh product after each use, while others provide unlimited refills.
An advantage not often considered is that the electric traction device used to push the spray across the surface of the material being cleaned is a key component in many sprayer systems. In most cases, the device either forces the spray onto the surface or propels the spray through it. Either method, however, provides excellent results. With the traction element removed, however, the ability to clean surfaces is eliminated, but the cost of such removal is actually much more expensive than the increased efficiency from eliminating the extra physical labor.
There are other advantages to these types of systems, too. Because these jet-driven devices are powered by electrical motors, they are usually less expensive to operate than typical sprayers powered by air pressure or water pressure. Jet-driven products are also quieter, as well, providing a greater degree of flexibility in industrial settings. Some jet-driven products even feature variable-speed motors, which allow for greater control over the speed of the nozzle and its application. In short, a pressure-driven pump or sprayer…jet-driven, is the best solution for larger jobs that would otherwise be difficult to complete if driven by traditional methods.
