Clean your screen filter

Materials entering the proportioning unit may require screening or filtering. Therefore, manufactures of the spray equipment commonly install y-strainers or filter housings on or near the machine to pre-screen the materials as they are transferred from the storage vessel prior to entering the proportioning unit. Proper cleaning or replacement of the screen filter must be completed daily or as needed to ensure proper material supply is achieved. Clogging and restriction of the screen filter may cause cavitation and/or poorly dispersed product known as off-ratio.
