GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INJECTOR
(or anything that mixes chemicals)
SAVES MONEY AND TIME
TESTING YOUR INJECTOR
ON YOUR MACHINE
1 gal jug ( marked at each cup totaling 16)
5 gal bucket ( marked at each gal)
Put everything together how you use it to ds.......
Fill the jug with 16 cups water.
Put the chemical line in the jug.
Pull the trigger for 60 seconds
Measure how many cups left after 60 seconds. ......
Take the chemical line out of the jug. .....
Pull the trigger into the 5 gal bucket for 60 seconds. ...... measure how much you produce in 60 sec.
Then we can do the math. ....
If you pulled 8 cups in 60 seconds
Produced 4 gallons in 60 seconds. ..
It would take 2 mins to pull 1 gal.
2 mins = 1 gal chemical pulled
2 mins = 8 gal water produced
Results = 8/1 injector
Some common used Ratios but the list is Growing!
10/1 (pre-spray flat work heavy oil)
15/1 ( gutters)
16/1 (awning )
20/1 (pre-spray flat work med oil)
40/1 (commercial flatwork maintenance)
50/1 (carpet) (auto detail)
64/1 (heavy soiled window cleaning)
100/1 ÷ (injector ratio ) = downstream mix Flatwork
128/1 (Window cleaning) (carpet)
133/1 × (injector ratio) house washes
500/1 (roof mixtures)
All have been used the most frequently and reported for different situations, these are all Contractor reported ratios, so try different ones always. When testing always test a small area for color fastness and needed dilutions
