Loading chemical from tote
 
Running two patriot sprayers and lookong for a way to load faster from totes. Been using chemical pumps to pump into cones for measuring. Thinking of plumping a suction line into the chemical inductor line. And using a ruler to measure chemical.

Will this idea work?

If so What size line should i use?

How accurate is the measuring with ruler?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated

If you can have your totes higher than the cone, the fastest way is a two inch gravity into the cone for measurement. Real quick:)

Have a look at this also http://www.bencubbin.com/pages/catal..._id=1&number=0

Totes and cones are both mountend on trailer. I tried gravity feeding with a spare 30 gallon cone and it worked ok for me. Just trying load faster and bypass the cone when loading from tote.

Are you sucking the chemical from the cone when its on the ground?

I put a side kick on the sprayer for Round up since that is my largest volume chem that takes to much time. I just pump it to the sprayer into a 150 gal rinse tank with a 2" pump.
Makes my life alot easier not cleaning Gly out of the main tank going back and forth with my row crops.

Strongly considering adding sidekick to atleast one sprayer with the new dicamba products coming out. How many products will sidekick handle?

I put a 1.5" tank flange in the top of my sprayer tank and ran a hose down next to the 3" filler. I connect a 2" banjo to it and use the shuttle gauge. I suck out shuttles and 110lt enviros with the banjo and usually can just keep up with the 3" pump

Yes I am; either by three way mixing tap; which is quicker or my 'b' site I use a 1" tap on the suction side of the pump to mix it in. The pump there seems to prefer the lower viscosity water to chemical.

What is a 3 way mixing tap?
Can i tee into suction line on inductor and pull chemical from tote
