Details

The AK230 gallon spray system is built for the full time driveway sealing contractor. With its full capacity, the 870 Litre (230 Gallon) tank will allow you to carry sealer without interrupting your work schedule with sealer refills.

When this tank is full you should be able to seal close to 23,000 square feet of asphalt. That equals to about 38 driveways averaging 550-600 square feet, or $4,830 in revenue if your jobs are priced properly at 21 cents per square foot. Another benefit of this tank capacity is the ability to complete small parking lot jobs in 1 day without having to refill on product. If you’re confident with taking on parking lot size jobs or want to complete $4,000+ weeks without having to refill then the AK230 is the best way to go.  

Tank:

We’ve designed this unit with you in mind from top to bottom. This unit features a puncture proof 11 gauge steel tank that won’t warp with pressure buildup or weather fluctuation like lower value poly tanks. We’ve manufactured this unit with a large double splash manhole opening; this allows for easy cleaning and maintenance of your tank as well as spill prevention during transport. You may also use the manhole for transferring sealer or adding water to meet proper dilution. Manual paddle agitation comes standard so you can keep you sealer properly mixed on the job.

Engine & Pump:

This unit comes standard with a Launtop Engine, and aluminium pump. Upgrade to a 2” centrifugal cast iron pump with Viton seals and cast iron impeller. The trigger gun makes cutting in the edges of the driveway simple and gives you precise control over the amount of sealer that is applied with a streak free finish.   

You can also add a filter kit.

Sealer:

Our systems spray water-based or acrylic sealer only. They do not work with petroleum or oil-based sealer. If you are purchasing sealer from anywhere other than Asphalt Kingdom, please check with your sealer manufacturer to ensure compatibility. We are unable to guarantee compatibility with any sealer other than our own.

A popular upgrade for our spray systems is the FAST TRANSFER KIT. This kit plugs directly into all Ryno Spray Systems and is required to load sealer from any drum or tote.

Note: Do not use sand with this spray system.

    Very Pleased
    I have been sealing driveways for the past 16 years been using black top sealer
    this year I bought a new system an Ak 230 sprayer at asphalt kingdom and purchase my super seal tar Emulsion Driveway sealer. I have used it all summer and my customers are very pleased with the final result. As I was spraying driveways, many people from other areas were very interested in my service and the results from using this product. All in all, I am very pleased with the product and plan on continuing to us
    Read moree it for many years to come.

Customer Questions
How do you prime the 130 or 230 Gallon Spray Systems?

The pumps are self-priming pumps so as long as your sealer is diluted properly and you have ample sealer in your tank your sprayer will self-prime. Always make sure that air isn’t sucking into the pump or you will lose prime and your pump will get quite hot potentially compromising the main seal which leads to a leaking pump.

If the sealer is too thick the pump will struggle with a prime as it’s like sucking a thick milkshake through a small straw.

Make sure your sealer is diluted at 20% to 30% at all times.

Check out this related article: priming your spray system.

How do I clean out my spray system between uses?

If you’re using the sealer within the week it can remain in the tank. Just periodically agitate the material in the tank to prevent it from settling and starting to cure.

If you want to remove the sealer from your main tank and store the sealer, we recommend taking off your spray tip and starting your unit up and then pumping the sealer into a drum or separate storage tank. Once this is done, flush your main tank out with water.

You can flush out your spray system by connecting the transfer kit or suction hose to a bucket or drum of water.

Simply turn your unit to Spray mode and spray the sealer back out into the drum or bucket that you got it from originally.

For more details, see this blog post: https://blog.asphaltkingdom.com/priming-spray-system

Can I spray sand with the 130 or 230 Gallon Spray Systems?

Our spray systems work only with Asphalt Emulsion Sealer.

If you use:

  • a sealer with sand, 
  • or oil based sealer,

the spray system will not work: the pump will need repair and you may even blow the engine.

If you use the wrong sealer your warranty is voided in the same way as if you were using diesel fuel in a gasoline engine for your truck. 

Can I flush the unit without touching the sealer?
Yes, simply close the main valve on the bottom of the tote. Disconnect the suction hose from the bottom of the tote and then put that end of the hose in a 5 gallon pail and turn the valve above the pump to spray mode and then start the engine. The pump will suck the water up out of the 5 gallon pail into the pump and down the spray hose out the gun and then spray the water out of the gun back into the 5 gallon pail you just sucked up and you can recirculate it in the pail like this while having the engine on low idle.
Can this system spray sealer with sand in it?
We cannot warranty a system if sand has been used in it as it will wear and ruin the seals. We do however, suggest applying the sand by hand with a grass seeding machine after applying a thin wet coat of sealer and then applying a second coat of sealer over top of the sand layer as a final coat.
Does the system re-circulate as well as agitation systems?

300 gallon metal tanks with sweep agitation blades mostly move the product contents near the outside walls of the storage tank. The heavy paddles usually rotate very slowly and are driven by cumbersome gears, chains, and pulleys. The product near the center of the tank may never even get mixed at all!

To observe this, try this revealing experiment:

First take a can of paint, secondly take a paint stir stick. Now stir the contents using the stir stick only along the inside edge of the paint can slowly. Try to emulate the speed of a paddle moving around the inside of a storage tank. What happens to the contents in the center of the paint can? Hardly moves or mixes at all doesn't it?

The re-circulation system that comes with the AK Tote, Drum, Portable, 130 and 230 Sprayers is absolutely amazing. Your sealer mixes up in 3 to 4 minutes and ready to apply.

What sort of sealer can I spray?

These systems can be used with specific brands of Asphalt Emulsion sealer. The systems cannot spray sealer with sand.

Approved Sealers:

  • Asphalt Emulsion (AE): GemSeal, Sealmaster and Neyra sealers only without the addition of any latex additives

We can't guarantee the performance of the systems with other people's sealer because they may add additives that we don't know about that could affect the performance of the pump, hoses, circulation, etc. We use the industry's best-quality sealer and we can assure you that you will not have any issues with it; if you wish to use another brand of sealer please contact the manufacturer to guarantee performance with your spray system.

The sealer is suddenly just trickling out of my spray tip. What caused this?

If a chunk of sealer, a stone, or a rock is blocking the output of the tip, it would create a blockage in the tip that would create a trickle or a pressurized multi-stream spray. Sealer sitting in the tank for a long period of the tank can dry on the side walls and form flakes. These flakes can fall into the rest of the sealer and get suctioned through to your spray tip, causing a blockage.

We heavily advise investing in a filter kit, as it filters out unwanted chunks. See more troubleshooting tips for if you lose pressure at the spray tip.

I'm getting an uneven spray pattern.

This usually happens due to the tip clogging or if the tip is worn out past a usable point. Make sure to clean your spray tips after every sealcoat job. Buy new spray tips and invest in a filter kit to prevent clogged spray tips.

What type of engine oil should I use? How much oil is needed?

Any standard 4-stroke motor can be used. Like the ones used for lawn mowers, snow blowers, etc.

For Launtop engines, 5W-40 is recommended and you can fill up to the level of oil gauge which is about 0.5 Liter. For Honda engines, you can use 10W-30 or the 5W-30 during the cold season - around 0.55-0.6 Liter depending on the model.

Please refer to the manual included with your purchase.

How do I prime the pump? How often should I do it?

Pump priming is simple. As long as there is constant liquid reaching the pump, it will prime and pump. The less air in the suction hoses the better the pump will prime and work.

When transferring sealer from drums to the main spray system tank make sure the transfer kit hose is completely full of water. Connect the barrel pipe to the transfer kit and then the other end of the transfer kit to the suction port of the pump and make sure the transfer kit hose remains full of water. Put the barrel pipe into the sealer drum. Make sure the ball valve handles are in transfer mode. Start your motor and begin your transfer.

The pump only needs to be primed the first time you use it or if you haven't used your pump for longer than 24 hours. Use 1 gallon of water in the pump through the pump orifice allows the machine to immediately push that liquid through, creating enough force to start pulling sealer from the tank.

If air is hitting your pump at anytime it will lose prime and the chances of burning up your seals are high. Make sure water or sealer is always reaching your pump.

If the pump is leaking between the engine and the motor, it's usually caused when the pump overheats, due to running the pump dry. The main master seal heats up and shrivels up, creating small cracks. Always make sure you run some kind of liquid in your pump, whether it be sealer or water during priming.

My system is not agitating.

You get this when the sealer is too thick and the pump cannot create a prime to circulate the sealer. Dilute it properly to achieve 20 to 30% water dilution.

Use a dipstick to check the level of your sealer at the end of the day and the next time you use your system, just in case of water evaporation (if the levels are different, add enough water to regain the previous sealer level).

Another possible reason could involve the system's ball valve. On the output part of the pump, there's a ball valve that allows you to redirect the sealer to the top of the tank or to the spray gun. If that ball valve is constantly or permanently broken to the spray gun, you wouldn't get recirculation.

Do the 130 Gallon / 230 Gallon systems fit in a pickup truck?

The 130 gallon system fits in trucks as small as Ford Rangers, Chevy S10's, or any full sized pickup truck.

The 230 gallon system fits in full sized pickup trucks like Ford F150's or larger.

Both systems fit in most trailers.

How many sq. feet of asphalt coverage do I get?

The 130 (130 Gallon Capacity) = 13,000 square feet (1,207.74 square meters) of coverage.

The 230 (230 Gallon Capacity) = 23,000 square feet (2,136.77 square meters) of coverage.

Hello i bought a ak spray sytem and the filter kit.can you please tell me where i attach the filter kit thanks.

We recommend that you have the filter "pointing" down, that way gravity will help move particulates out of the way of the main flow.

The filter connects to the output port of the pump, and then your spray hose connects to the filter kit. Steps on how to assemble the Filter Kit:

  • Insert filter into main valve, close camlocks, insert cotter pins
  • Insert spray hose into other end of filter, close camlocks, insert cotter pins.

Filter Kit attachment

After one completes sealcoating how difficult is it to clean equipment if it will sit for a while.
We recommend that you clean it before you store it - it's always best to clean your unit at the time you put it away. However, if you have stored it for a while without cleaning, you will have problems if the sealer has cured in the hoses and pump.
