Crop sprayer hoses

The sprayer hose is a hose that is used in agriculture and horticulture to spray insecticides, herbicides and other liquids. Without it, the sprayer could not function. Because of its intended use, sprayer hose must be able to withstand high working pressures, as well as being resistant to weather conditions and the various chemicals that are included in fertilisers and plant protection products. 

Sprayer hoses are most often made from PVC or EPDM/SBR rubber. In addition, they are non-toxic and do not contain heavy metals, guaranteeing safety when cultivating. In our offer you will find various hoses of this type, which differ from each other in some properties and parameters, but are united by the high quality of workmanship, for which renowned manufacturers are responsible.

Crop sprayer hoses

How is a sprayer hose constructed?

The sprayer hose is constructed of three layers:

  • inner layer - which is resistant to the transmitted medium and has a smoother surface that does not disturb the flow;
  • reinforcement - depending on the type of hose this will be a braid, spiral, or both; 
  • outer layer - resistant to environmental factors.

When it comes to the manufacturing material, you will usually be dealing with either polyvinyl chloride, which is the popular PVC, or EPDM rubber and SBR rubber (sometimes also a mixture of both).

What varieties of sprayer hoses are available?

Sprayer hose is divided into several varieties depending on what type of machine they are adapted to and what work they can do.

In the first case, you have at your disposal:

  • hose for a handheld sprayer (also known as a hose for a backpack sprayer) - is distinguished by its short length and usually small diameter. In addition, it is available with ready-made connectors to connect to the equipment; 
  • field sprayer hose - this is a typical industrial hose, available in the various varieties we have described above. It is characterised by its longer length, diameter, and durability as it is used for large agricultural machinery. With regard to the type of work to be performed, hoses are divided as follows: 
  • pressure sprayer hose (also known as discharge hose) - is used for pumping the medium and is therefore characterised by increased resistance to working pressure. It results from reinforcement in the form of textile or synthetic braid. It is not suitable for vacuum operation, as this risks collapsing the hose walls inwards; 
  • suction sprayer hose - is designed for vacuum (suction) operation. Therefore, it has a special plastic or stainless steel spiral to prevent the hose wall from collapsing inwards. It is also suitable for low-pressure pumping; 
  • suction and discharge sprayer hose - combines what discharge hoses and suction hoses have to offer. Due to the presence of both braid and spiral, it is possible to work under pressure and vacuum.

As you can see, a sprayer hose can have different characteristics depending on what your needs are.

How to choose the right hose for your sprayer?

To choose the right hose for your sprayer, pay attention to a few important points. These are:

  • intended use - choose the variety of hose based on what we have written above; 
  • length - depends on the machine, but it is important that the hose is not under tension when fitted; 
  • diameter - should match the installation and power of the sprayer (usually wider hose sections are for machines that generate more pressure); 
  • permissible working pressure - also depends on the device (consider, however, that the pressure in a wider hose will be lower than in a narrower one); 
  • operating temperature range - a hose that is resistant to heat and cold will not lose its properties under varying environmental conditions.

FAQ

What is the difference between a pressure sprayer hose and a suction sprayer hose for a sprayer?

arrow-up

A pressure sprayer hose differs from a suction sprayer hose in the type of reinforcement. The former has a braid, while the latter has reinforcement in the form of a spiral. There are also suction-pressure hoses for sprayers that combine the features of both counterparts.

What to choose: 20 mm sprayer hose or 25 mm sprayer hose?

arrow-up

When you choose a hose diameter, be guided primarily by the output of the sprayer. A general rule of thumb is that a wider hose is for higher flow rates, as the pressure inside will be lower due to the larger space.

Which sprayer hose is better: plastic or rubber?

arrow-up

Choosing the right hose material depends on your needs. Plastic hoses tend to be cheaper and lighter, but still have a wide range of resistance. By contrast, you will pay more for rubber hoses, but in return you can count on greater resistance in terms of temperature extremes. Rubber is also noticeably heavier.
