Liquid Tank Cleaner

Available exclusively from Tractor Supply Co.

Remove residue. Avoid cross contamination.

Reduce or eliminate residues from pesticides in mix tanks by thorough cleaning with Liquid Tank Cleaner from one tank mix to the next. Extend the lifetime of seals and other soft parts in equipment and lines. Use with all active ingredients. Tank Cleaner has an extremely alkaline pH, which helps neutralize acid active ingredients more efficiently and works well with sulfonylurea herbicides, both of which are particularly stubborn when being cleaned from a tank.

Where to use:

In all working parts of your spray equipment.

When to use:

When swithcing chemicals.

How to use:

  1. Add 1/2 of the water needed based on the tank size
  2. Dissolve amount of Spray Tank Cleaner needed to clean tank as shown by Use Rate chart
  3. Add remaining amount of water
  4. Close valve to spray boom
  5. Agitate vigorously
  6. Open bypass valve and circulate solution through spraying system for 15 minutes
  7. Use hose or hand sprayer to thoroughly wash all internal tank parts
  8. Open spray boom valve and allow solution to flow through entire spray boom as well as nozzles
  9. Refill tank with water to the same rate as previously used with Spray Tank Cleaner to recirculate for 10 minutes and then flush through spray boom and nozzles. If changing chemicals, a second rinse is recommended with 25 gallons of water. 

USE RATE

Spray Tank Cleaner Amount of Water Tank Size
4 ounces 12.5 gallons 25 gallons
8 ounces 25 gallons 50 gallons
16 ounces 50 gallons 100 gallons
32 ounces 100 gallons 200 gallons

EXTRA PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE FOLLOWED AFTER USING 2,4-D OR SIMILAR MATERIALS.

Hoses, rubber connections, pump and hand gun packing are more likely to retain 2,4-D than tank, boom or metal parts, equal attention should be given to the flushing of these. Many authorities recommend renewal of soft parts after using 2,4-D. However, if these are in good condition, Spray Tank Cleaner will clean them.

  1. Flush complete rig with plain water, inside and out
  2. Use as directed on label except allow Spray Tank Cleaner to remain in rig and hoses overnight
  3. Take liberal sample of second rinse from each section of boom and hand gun
  4. Sprinkle these samples on particularly susceptible plants such as tomato, cotton, etc. to determine if cleaning was sufficient. Period required to show 2,4-D varies with tem-perature and humidity. 48 hours is usually enough
  5. If tests show 2,4-D present replace hoses, pump packing, rubber connections, etc. and repeat entire process including test. 

Precautions:

Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Wear eye protection.

Advice

  1. Perennial Forages in the South

    As stored feed needs go down, the profitability of a livestock operation generally goes up.  Growing several pasture forage crops with differing growing seasons is an excellent way to provide more total days of grazing on a given farm. Annual forages often play an extremely important role in extending grazing, [...]

  2. Pasture Forage Offers Advantages Over Stored Feed

    One of the biggest challenges associated with raising livestock is providing feed for them. For most livestock producers, continual striving to provide a long grazing season for their animals is highly beneficial. Doing this minimizes the amount of hay or other stored feed that will be needed. It is an [...]

  3. SOIL TESTING IS MORE VALUABLE THAN EVER

    Soil testing has long been recommended by agronomists, consultants, and others, and for good reason. Anyone who doesn’t soil test is just guessing with regard to applying fertilizer.  If too much is applied, money has been wasted; if too little is applied, forage growth will be less than optimal.  Without [...]

  4. Pruning Your Garden in Late-Winter

    It may seem like fall is the ideal time to cut back your garden plants, and if you’re thinking of grass, vegetables and perennials, it is. But shrubs, on the other hand, benefit from a late-winter, early spring prune.  Why Prune in Late-Winter? In temperate regions, most shrubs go dormant [...]

  5. Forage Quality and Animal Needs

    Minimizing the need for hay or other stored feed is a key to profitable forage/livestock production. Numerous strategies can be used to accomplish this, one of which is striving to match animal needs to forage quality. Different animal types and classes have different nutritional needs. Therefore, by having animals with [...]
