MANKAR ULV spraying systems

MANKAR ULV spraying systems

MANKAR® spraying systems are professional systems for effective, environmentally responsible and yet economical weed control with herbicides or herbicide mixtures without water.
They are based on ULV (ultra low volume) technology for optimum distribution of an extremely small amount of active product with an even droplet size.
This means that the amount of herbicide required can be considerably reduced.

Hand-held units for maximum flexibility
The portable models are ideal for use in areas of dense cultivation, areas where rows are irregular, or wherever, due to surface properties, a high degree of flexibility is required.

Wheelbarrow units for row cultivation and paths
The MANKAR®-Roll models are suitable, for example, for row cultivation, grass areas and paths and squares with water-bound surfaces*. Wheel-driven pumps enable accurate, path-dependent metering over larger distances and areas too.

Mounted units for large area application
The units for mounting or attaching are suitable for large-scale use in row cultivation, grass areas and paths and squares with water-bound surfaces.

BioMant Aqua for thermal weed control with hot water

BioMant Aqua for thermal weed control with hot water

BioMant Aqua is the most effective weed control method anywhere where the use of herbicides is not allowed or is not desired.

BioMant Aqua units destroy weeds with water heated to 99.5°C. The cell structure of the plant is destroyed by the high water temperature and the upper part dies. When treated multiple times, the plant grows so weak that it dies.

BioMant Herbi for use of organic herbicides

BioMant Herbi for use of organic herbicides

Mantis developed the BioMant Herbi spraying system specially for the use of organic herbicides, e.g., pelargonic acid which has to be distributed in very large quantities (e.g. Finalsan® requires166 l/ha) in order to achieve the desired results. It can, however, also be used with other fluids such as organic plant fortifiers.

 

Company news

More flexibility in weed control

More flexibility in weed control

At the 2018 edition of the IPM, Mantis ULV will present several innovations in the BioMant Aqua hot water range of spraying systems for chemical-free weed control, as well as in the MANKAR ULV herbicide sprayings systems and BioMant Herbi models for organic herbicides.

BioMant Aqua sprayers destroy the cell structure of weed with 99.5°C hot water. A new, exceptionally versatile and lightweight spray cart now complements the range of accessories. The spray cart is so light; it can also be used on vertical surface, such as walls, and can therefore effectively treat moss and algae, as well as weed, in all circumstances. Awkward corners are no longer a problem, as the new cart has its wheels mounted behind the spray bar, allowing for full-width spraying. Larger water droplets minimize the heat loss.

The WS-Mini and WS-Compact models, very popular with gardening and landscaping companies as well as garden centres, now have an adjustable thermostat, which enables, apart from weed control, high-pressure cleaning at different temperatures. Whereas the larger WS-I, WS-II and WS-Agro models are the most environmentally friendly machines of its kind in the market, thanks to the optional LPG heating and battery operated pump, minimising noise and emissions.

MANKAR ULV sprayers ensure large savings in herbicide, thanks to the unique segment rotation atomiser, and are therefore a sound investment. Whether using the handheld, wheelbarrow or attachment sprayers, drift is minimal and cultivated plants are optimally protected. With MANKAR ULV sprayers, the use of herbicides is minimalised whilst guaranteeing a first-class result and significant time saving.

Company profile

Mantis ULV-Sprühgeräte GmbH started in 1975 with the development, production and sales of specialised ULV spraying systems (ULV = ultra low volume) for a variety of applications.

Over the years, Mantis has been able to build its expertise and now offers a full and wide range of optimally designed spraying systems for many professional applications. For weed control, MANKAR® ULV spraying systems are used to apply undiluted liquid herbicides, whereas BioMant Aqua and Herbi sprayers have been designed for weed control without the use of chemicals.  MAFEX®-Potato/Fruit fine spraying units are optimised for crop protection, e.g. for potatoes and citrus fruits and MAFEX®-Silage spraying systems are used directly on the chopper for an even distribution of silage additives. With ROFA, insects and air-borne germs can be tackled. Finally, Mantis offers various specialised MANTIS ULV spraying systems for industrial applications, e.g. the application of release agents in the concrete or food industry.

Through our global sales network, which comprises of independent sales partners, our sprayers are available in most countries in the world. Our partners can help our customers choose the sprayer that is best suited to their needs and also ensure quality service and spare parts.

At Mantis, we continuously strive to make the best quality sprayers that suit the needs and continuously evolving demands of our clients.
