Foam Marker System
We developed this foam marker system for use on our line of sprayers because we weren't happy with markers already on the market. We kept it very simple and trouble-free, without a lot of valves and rheostats. The secret of the marker is our patented "foam tube" mixing chamber which lets us go as low as 4 gal. of water per hour with an operating cost of just 1 to 3 cents per acre. Air is pumped into the bottom of the chamber and mixes with the foam solution that is pumped into the upper portion of the mixing chamber. Foam doesn't have to be pushed all the way out the length of the boom so the marker starts making foam almost instantly after the switch is turned on. Lets us keep the compressor and pump close to the battery, away from dirt, and put the foam tube out on the boom. We make foamers for anything from small turf sprayers to sprayers with 130-ft. booms that travel at 10 to 20 mph.
