Ferrox Plus Compression Sprayer - 6 litre
This 6-litre compression sprayer has a steel tank which has an anti-corrosive internal and external coating. The steel tank is especially strong and robust meaning that it can handle some heavy usage and withstand the knocks that a sprayer can be subjected to.
The steel tank allows for a maximum internal pressure of up to 6 bar which allows for the spraying of thicker liquids and for long spraying times especially when used with on of our Constant Flow Valves. It also allows you to use liquids up to 50oC unlike standard tanks which can only handle ambient temperatures.
2.5-metre recoil hose gives good reach as well as keeping the spray area tidy and the integral pressure gauge allows you to be certain of the internal pressure.

Why should I have a metal sprayer as they cost more than your plastic ones?
There are two main advantages that a metal spraying tank has over a sprayer with a plastic tank; firstly, our metal sprayers can be operated at a working pressure of 6 bar as opposed to 3 bar with the plastic tanks and secondly the metal tanks are stronger so can withstand more impacts and, generally, heavier usage. These points are applicable to both the sprayers with a coated steel or stainless-steel tank.
Should I have a steel or stainless steel tank?
As both tanks are robust and can be pressurised to 6 bar the final choice depends upon what you are planning to use the sprayer for. General pH neutral chemicals (biocides, fungicides, basic cleaning products) can be used within both types of tank as can hot liquids and those with a higher viscosity (thicker). Steel tanks should not be used with aggressive liquids and with FPM seals neither should be used with chemicals outside of a pH range of 5-9. If you want the benefits of a stainless-steel tank and want to be able to spray aggressive chemicals then we have our Super Extreme Sprayer - Alkaline for pH 7-14 or Super Extreme Sprayer - Acid for the chemicals with a pH of 1-9.
What are the Constant Flow Valves you mention?
We have a range of three valves that, when used, restrict the spraying pressure to either 1, 1.5 or 2bar. This has a number of advantages as many products have an optimum spraying pressure so you can be certain that you are applying your product at a rate that will give minimum wastage and maximum efficiency. Secondly, take advantage of the 6 bar maximum pressure and you will have a very long spray time before having to put more air into the sprayer.
