Pre-Season Preparation

Spring is coming—Time to get ready to roll! Here are a few tips and tricks to make sure that you are ready.
1. Load the tank with 100-200 gallons of water. Utilize the stationary/manual operation procedure for your controller. Allow the pump(s) to run long enough to thoroughly flush the system of any solids that may have accumulated over winter.
2. Inspect the system for any leaks.
3. Use simulated rate and speed mode to ensure the system is working correctly. Keep in mind that water is thinner and weighs less than fertilizer and will result in significantly lower pressures than when fertilizer is pumped. If not all check valves open initially, increase your simulated rate until you reach a minimum of twice the cracking pressure of your check valves. (SureFire check valves with a black cap=10 lbs, with a blue cap=4lbs)
4. Pump any remaining water from the tank, fill with fertilizer, and you are ready to head to the field.
5. For more specific information about operating your SureFire System, see our support page for your specific control platform.

Winterization

1. Flush your SureFire System with sufficient water to ensure all fertilizer and/or chemical is purged. This typically requires 50 to 150 gallons of water. Ensuring that all fertilizer is flushed out will prevent salt-out and crystallization over the winter. If not flushed properly this can result in significant frustration the following spring with plugging orifices, metering tubes, filters, and cracking pumps.
2. Circulate RV Antifreeze, or specific winterization flush solution, through the entire system. Once all of the components are full, stop pumping, leaving antifreeze in the system. The antifreeze in the system prevents seals, gaskets, and pump diaphragms from being exposed to dry winter air resulting in significantly increased life. For more information on how to run your controller while sitting still, see our support page for your specific controller.

Controller Compatibility

SureFire Ag systems are compatible with John Deere Rate Control, Ag Leader, Trimble, Raven, Micro-Trak, Dickey John, Topcon, Agco, and Case.  The integration of a SureFire system into a multi-function platform is a seamless process. Our technical manuals provide detailed instructions to get you running in no time.

The PumpRight Advantage

If you are looking to control your liquid application with the same precision as your seed, the SureFire PumpRight is the ideal solution.  With four different sizes offered, a SureFire application control expert can help you choose the one that is right for your needs, up to 55 GPM.  Key features include:

Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) Hydraulic Valve – The PWM “control valve” is a complete motor mounted assembly which minimizes external plumbing.  PWM solenoid valve regulates oil flow and turns off flow when commanded to by the controller.  The valve is compatible with power beyond hydraulics with addition of load sense line to the tractor.

Positive Displacement – One revolution of the pump shaft results in a specific volume of flow.

Suction – PumpRight pumps develop suction and thus are self-priming.  There are no seals to ruin and it is impossible for the system to develop an air lock.  Implement mounted pumps will easily pull liquid from tractor or trailer mounted tanks.

Easy Installation – PumpRight pumps are designed for easy installation and setup.  The complete pump, with direct-couple hydraulic motor, hydraulic flow control, and flow meter are affixed to the mounting bracket at the factory.  The provided mounting bracket easily attaches to tubes from 4” to 8” wide.

Multiple Control Options – PumpRight pumps are compatible with John Deere, Ag Leader, Trimble, CASE, Topcon, Dickey-John, AGCO, and SureFire control systems.
