Sprayer/Tender trailer setups

Anyone custom make an auto batch system using their Venturi or inductor before? Wanting to build my own batching system or even just a loading system that’s makes loading faster, was wondering if anyone had any examples or advice/ideas

We have moved to making more single batch hot loads all mixed up. And haul out to sprayer. If you have good help around, It sure keeps the sprayer moving. All our fields are not far from the mix area, though.

I’ve got a neighbor that has water line coming out the tank towards the pump. Along that line he has valves teed in with flow meters behind them between the valves and shuttles. Valves work like a Venturi, he claims he can load 1200gal sprayer in under 10min. If no jugs are needed. Jugs slow it down as he uses his sprayer eductor. I questioned the meter calibration holding and he said he’s not worried about it being 100% accurate, 85% or better he’s fine with. I like my BatchBoy setup personally. Accurate and I can still be loaded in 15-18min (1200gal).

We also have a Batchboy and it’s some of the best money we’ve spent. Load times are improved 50 percent. No meters to calibrate very accurate simple and easy to use

I bought 2 sets of scales and made platforms that hold 2 chemical totes a piece.i then use the venturi to suck directly out of the tote using the scale to measure amount. I set up the scale for $1,000 each which was cheaper then meters and should be more accurate. Normally when I put on a new tote I 0 the scale so I know it's close. From the time I get out of the sprayer to back in in under 8 mins with no doing prep work. If I have to load more than 2 products of jugs it slows me down. I can add pictures later if you want.
