Super Extreme 10 - Acid

Super Extreme 10 - Acid

SKU:0021

This Super Extreme compression sprayer is the highest quality unit within our range of metal sprayers for spraying strong acids as well as other active substances. This is a sprayer that, in our opinion, is second to none. It combines the strength of a metal tank with the chemical resistance of a plastic tank, has an acceptable pH range between 1-9 and has a maximum working pressure of 6 BAR.

Product Description

This compression sprayer is the next level up from our Cleaner Compression Sprayer - Acid which has a fully plastic tank therefore can only be operated to a
maximum pressure of 3 bar. The tank of the Super Extreme is constructed from stainless steel but has a plastic inner lining which allows the high chemical resistance. It can be operated at 6-bar and can handle liquids up to 50oC and is obviously more robust than a plastic tank. In addition to all of this, the Super Extreme is fitted with a valve which allows it to be connected to an air compressor.

Whilst this prayer is fitted with FPM seals it does not mean that it can be used to spray all types of acidic 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.

FAQs

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. This 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 give very good chemical resistance when used in conjunction with the EPDM seals.

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 so special about the Super Extreme sprayer?

As we say in the 'Product Description' for this sprayer, this is a special sprayer as it can not only handle many different chemicals but combines this with the strength of a stainless steel tank. This gives you all the benefits of our sprayers combined into one unit; excellent pH range, 6 bar operating pressure, high maximum content temperature and high resistance to external damage.
