6 BAR maximum pressure and NBR seals for acid, neutral and certain mild alkaline products.
This stainless steel tank gives the added strength, working lifespan and increased maximum working pressure when compared to plastic tanks. You have a choice of sprayers within the Stainless Steel range so select from either 5 or 10 litre which allows you to have the size that best suits your requirements.
This range of stainless steel compression sprayers are ideal when working in areas where they may be subjected to a little more rough & tumble which makes them ideal for the professional user. So if you are planning to have them in & out of vans or use them on building sites or if they are going to be used by multiple people then the added strength of the steel tank will be a real bonus. In addition to this, the steel tank allows for a higher maximum working pressure of 6 bar compared to the 3 bar of a plastic tank and the steel can handle higher liquid temperatures than plastic.
This range of sprayers are intended for use with mild chemical solutions such as those used within the forestry and landscaping industries. However they are not limited to these but they are not designed to be used with aggressive chemical solutions. If you plan to use this type of chemical, and want a steel sprayer, then our Stainless Steel Plus or Super Extreme may be more suited.
Whilst this prayer is fitted with NBR seals it does not mean that it can be used to spray all types of chemical. We therefore recommend a compatibility test when using aggressive chemical solutions. If you think there may be an issue with a product that you wish to use then just send us the safety data sheet (MSDS) for the product and we will check compatibility and recommend an alternative sprayer if necessary.
*We recommend a full compatibility test with aggressive chemical solutions. If you are unsure about a product that you plan to use then send us the safety data sheet (MSDS) for the product and we will check compatibility and recommend an alternative sprayer if necessary.
Why is the tank size different from the working capacity?
With compression sprayers you must have room, within the tank, to pressurise air which will then push the liquid out of the tank. This is why there is a difference and this difference is called ullage. If the sprayer has a 13-litre tank but we recommend a maximum fill of 10-litres which gives an ullage of 3-litres which you pressurise when you pump the compression handle. The more pressurised air that there is within the tank then the longer spray time between stopping and re-pressurising the tank. Be careful when buying sprayers as you need to know the fill volume/capacity not the tank size.
Why should I use a Stainless Steel sprayer?
They are strong, look very good, are robust and can handle higher content temperatures. If you are trying to decide whether a stainless steel tank or a steel tank is the best option for you, the main difference is that the steel tanks are painted to protect the steel from the housed liquids. This means that if the internal paint is damaged, maybe the tank has been dented, then the hosed liquid can get in contact with the steel and start to corrode the tank. Basically, stainless steel tanks should have a longer lifespan than steel tanks.
You say that this sprayer can be used at 6 BAR, how do I know when it is at pressure?
Our Super Extreme sprayers have a pressure gauge fitted which will show you the air pressure within the tank. This is very helpful as sometimes you will just want the most pressure possible especially if you are trying to spray a very thick liquid but some products will recommend a spraying pressure for optimum performance. With the gauge you can see exactly the pressure that you are spraying.
What is the difference between the Stainless Steel & Stainless Steel Plus?
The sprayers themselves are very similar; they are both constructed from stainless steel have similar working capacities and both have a maximum working pressure of 6 BAR. The main difference is chemical resistance, the Stainless Steel Plus has a greater chemical resistance than the Stainless Steel so you should always check the compatibility of the sprayer and the chemicals you plan to use.
