Electromagnetic flowmeters are superior to traditional turbine flowmeters in two basic ways. First,
they have no moving parts. This translates into no wear items or potential for contaminants to jam a spinning
turbine.
Second, electromagnetic flowmeters detect the flow by electrically measuring the velocity of the liquid,
which makes them independent of viscosity or density of the fluid measured. They are extremely accurate
using the standard calibration number. SureFire still recommends you perform a catch test to verify the
system is properly installed and configured.

Each flowmeter has a different diameter
sensing element. Although the calibration
numbers may be the same, the proper
sized flowmeter must be used.
Earlier model flowmeters (meters with
white labels with black text) have different
calibration numbers. See the
documentation for those meters to find
the calibration numbers.

How it Works
Section valves can be assembled into groups
with a common inlet to control flow to each section.
Common assemblies use up to 5-6 valves, however,
more can be used where practical. Many alternate
fittings can be used to accommodate different hose
sizes and configurations.
The valves have a 3 pin weather pack electrical
connector. This has a power, ground, and switched
wire. The power measured to ground should have 12
volts when the controller is on. The switched wire will
have 12 volts to turn the valve on, and 0 volts to turn
the valve off.

Pump Priming and Air Bleed Valve
An air bleed valve is included with each pump to aid in system
priming. It is shipped in the pump accessories bag and must
be installed during system installation.
Components
Liquid
Why use an air bleed valve:
Most fertilizer systems are equipped with a 4 lb or 10 lb check valve on the end of each hose delivering
fertilizer to the ground. These valves do not let air escape from the system, unless it is pressurized.
PumpRight liquid pumps are not good air compressors. Therefore, the pump can struggle to prime due to air
trapped on the outlet side of the pump.
AF
T
The air bleed valve is a small 1/4” valve that when opened lets air escape from the pump outlet at zero
pressure. Open until liquid comes out and then close the valve.
How to install the air bleed valve:
Remove the 1/4” plug from the quick connect fitting on the pump outlet side (see pictures below). Next, insert
the 1/4” tubing in the quick connect fitting. Run the 1/4” tubing to an easily accessible spot on your
equipment. Next, cut the tubing and push the 1/4” valve onto the tubing. Finally, run the tubing to a low
location where any fertilizer that escapes will run on the ground.

Recirculation & Agitation
A recirculation valve is standard on all 4 PumpRight models
outlet plumbing assembly.
Components
Liquid
How Recirculation Works:
AF
T
When running a PumpRight pump at less than 20% of it’s maximum flow, it sometimes
improves system stability to allow the pump to run faster. Opening the recirculation valve
diverts some pump flow before the flowmeter, causing the pump to run faster. The application
rate is still measured by the flowmeter and everything that passes through the flowmeter is
applied to the ground. If the pump is surging at a low flow rate, open the recirculation
regulation valve until the pump runs smoothly. OPENING THE VALVE LOWERS THE
MAXIMUM RATE THAT CAN BE APPLIED TO THE GROUND. Close the valve if a higher
rate is required.
How to modify for tank agitation:
If tank agitation is required, the recirculation valve can be re-plumbed to divert flow to the tank.
All that is required is to remove the 1/2” recirculation hose from the pump. Then replace the
3/8” MPT x 1/2” HB on the inlet side of the pump with a 3/8” plug which is included in your
PumpRight accessories bag. Finally, install a longer 1/2” hose from the recirculation valve
back to the tank.

Product Distribution
To assure proper and even distribution to each row, the product being applied
must be metered to each individual row. This metering is done by one of the 3
following methods which create back pressure so an equal amount of liquid is
applied to each row.
B
Components
Liquid
1. A metering orifice may be placed in the top cap of each floating ball flow indicator. (See
photos on page 16.)
2. A metering orifice may be placed in the check valve cap in the line that leads to each
row. (See photo on page 18.)
3. A dual metering tube kit with dual check valves may be used. (See pages 22-25.)
Floating Ball Flow Indicator & Manifold System
AF
T
Flow indicators give a clear visual signal that a
fertilizer system is working. These indicators use an oring and wire clip connection to snap together in any
configuration necessary.
SureFire has simple tee brackets and U-bolts that
will mount these to a variety of bar sizes.
Two main types of flow indicators are used. On
30” row spacing, the low flow column with 1/4” push
to connect outlet is recommended for rates under 10
GPA. For rates over 10 GPA the full flow column with
3/8” hose barb outlet is preferred.

SureFire recommends the low flow

The full flow columns are most
often assembled with 3/8” hose barb

The low flow column has a smaller internal diameter. This means a
heavier ball can be used to monitor a smaller flow.
SureFire uses the low flow columns with 1/4” push to connect
outlet fittings. The flow capability of 1/4” tubing and the low flow
column are a great pair for rates on 30” rows under 10 GPA.
Externally, the low flow column can only be identified by “Low Flow”
molded into one side of the column. All the same fittings work with low flow

Check Valves
10 lb check valve with 3/8” hose barbs
The recommended check valve for most PumpRight installations is
the 10 lb check with 3/8” hose barbs. This works with 3/8” rubber
hose which SureFire recommends for most applications over 10 GPA
on 30” rows. The recommended minimum system operating
pressure for this check is 20 psi, to ensure all checks open fully.

Recommendations (with 10 lb check
valves):
 Minimum 20 PSI
 Maximum 80 PSI
396-00xxxx SureFire PumpRight for Dickey-john VT Control
Chart is for 28-0-0 Fertilizer @ 70°
Heavier fertilizers (like 10-34-0) will
have 5-15% less flow than chart
indicates for a certain pressure
 Cold fertilizers will cause system
pressure to increase at a given
application rate.
 Tower Electric Pump Systems will
have reduced flow and increased
electrical current draw due to cold
fertilizer increasing operating
pressure. Use the largest orifice
possible for cold weather
operation.


Colored Disc Orifice assembles under
the check valve cap in most cases. (Drop
the orifice with the hole down into the
cap, then put the gasket on top of it.)
The orifice can also be installed in a
manifold (common on grain drills).

SureFire dual metering tube plumbing kits are a great way to plumb a planter to apply starter fertilizer.
They’ll also work on other implements when applying low rates of fertilizer.
These plumbing kits will contain everything you need to distribute fertilizer from the flowmeter outlet
down to the ground application device of your choice (not included).
These instructions will show you where all the pieces go. It will provide guidance on how much
metering tube to use. There are some optional
fittings included in each plumbing kit. These

The dual metering tube allows for three application rate
ranges. Black Label ZN fertilizer has a widely variable
viscosity. Therefore, based on temperature, tank mixing
and fertilizer batch, the best tube to use will change.

SureFire recommends you start with the Green tube
ON only. This is the middle size and is a good starting
point. Conduct a test using the test speed mode to
determine your system pressure. Recommended
On/Off
pressure is between 8 - 30 PSI for electric pumps. If

pressure is below 8 psi, some check valves may not open
and row to row distribution will be uneven. If pressure is
too high the system will operate less efficiently and Black
Label ZN fertilizer may react adversely. Pressures up to
80 PSI may be used with PumpRight hydraulic pumps.

Start with green tube ON, blue tube OFF:
 Pressure below 8 PSI: Turn green tube OFF and

This is a general diagram showing the dual check valve assembly mounted on a planter toolbar. The check
valve and bracket are very flexible in their mounting. The check valve can mount behind, directly over, or in
front of the toolbar. The check valve can be put in the bracket facing up & down or sideways (shown). In
addition, the steel bracket could be rotated 90 degrees and clamp around the bar. The multiple slots in the
bracket are used to mount to any tube 7x7 inches or smaller.

Follow these steps to mount each check valve to the
steel bracket.
1. Screw the 3/8” MPT x 3/4” HB tee or elbow into the
check valve using blue thread sealer. Orient the
hose barb to run the 3/4” hose down the planter
toolbar.
2. Insert the check valve into the “C” notch in the end
of the bracket, according to how you want the check
valve to be mounted on your planter. Orient the
wire clips up or to the side for easiest access.
3. Slide the small “C” clamp bracket around the check
valve to lock it in place.
4. Install the 1/4” carriage bolt and flange nut to secure
the “C” clamp plate around the check valve.
5. Now, mount the check valve on the bar. Hold the
check valve and long bracket assembly on the
toolbar. Slide the tab on the front of the short
bracket into the upper or lower notch on the long
bracket.
6. Slide the L bolt into the appropriate slots on the
brackets for your tube size. Tighten the 1/4” flange
nuts to hold the bracket in place.

PumpRight Pump Installation
Mounting
1. Mount pump in your preferred location. The PumpRight pump has
excellent suction and priming ability, so it can be mounted away from or
above fertilizer tanks.
2. SureFire has U-Bolts available to mount the pump directly to multiple bar
sizes shown below. Each U-bolt kit includes 1 bolt and 2 flange nuts.
3. If the U-Bolts will not work, order the universal backer plate kit, number
515-203000 which will clamp to any size tube from 4” - 8” wide.

open the bypass valve
slightly.
Return oil to Tank - Check valve

R
Pump Rotation Check Valve
A check valve is included on the outlet port of the hydraulic valve. This prevents the pump
from running in the wrong direction. If ran in the wrong direction, liquid will be pumped,
however the hydraulic valve will not be able to control the flow. The check valve can be
identified by the Part Number 1108R stamped on it and a flow direction arrow.
D
How it Works with Power Beyond Hydraulics
This valve is designed to work with power beyond hydraulics. This configuration will not
require a standard tractor remote hydraulic valve. First, remove the load sense plug and install
a #6 male boss x #6 JIC adapter fitting, SureFire PN 161-01-6MB-6MJ. Then run a 3/8” or 1/4”
hydraulic hose back to the tractor. This hose will connect to the load sense port on the tractor.
The bypass valve must be closed to use power beyond hydraulics. The load sense line
will signal the tractor hydraulic system to supply the flow needed by the pump to meet your
application rate. The SureFire valve has an internal load sense check valve, which is required
for power beyond hydraulics.

E
Installation
Overview
Where do I get hydraulic flow for my PumpRight?
This question is often asked as many implements use up all the hydraulic connections on a tractor. SureFire
has some recommendations as to what works best.
AF
T
Best Option - Dedicated PumpRight Circuit
If you have a tractor remote available, attach the tractor remote valve
directly to the PumpRight pressure and return ports. DO NOT try to avoid this
method simply to save another set of hydraulic hoses running to the tractor. Operating the
PumpRight on it’s own circuit is the simplest for installation and operation. It guarantees the PumpRight won’t
negatively affect any other hydraulic components on your equipment.
Alternate Option - In Series with John Deere CCS Fan or Bulk Fill Seed Fan
If you do not have a tractor remote valve available, this may be your best method. You can plumb the
PumpRight after the seed distribution fan. If using this method, the SureFire PWM bypass valve must be
open (see previous page for instruction & picture). If bypass is left closed, the SureFire valve will limit the
speed of the seed distribution fan.
For example, the John Deere CCS fan uses around 7 GPM of oil. This will limit the PumpRight maximum
flow (10 GPM oil necessary for maximum flow). See the charts on the next page for adjusted maximum
pump flow. See section G for flow charts to determine your necessary flow rate. If you absolutely need the
maximum flow in this case, SureFire has an alternate motor (smaller displacement) to increase pump speed
at 7 GPM oil flow.
DO NOT plumb the PumpRight in series with a vacuum fan. The vacuum fan uses just a few GPM of oil.
Also, problems will be caused by excessive pressure at the vacuum fan motor
R
Two PumpRights
D
The preferred method is to plumb the two pumps in series. DO NOT plumb two pumps after the CCS fan.
Excessive pressures may damage the CCS fan motor. Run the pressure line from tractor to first pump inlet.
Plumb from the outlet of Pump 1 to the Inlet of Pump 2, then from Pump 2 outlet back to the tractor. Open
the bypass needle valve on both pumps so each valve controls motor speed independently. Run the flow
setting procedure on the next page to minimize the hydraulic flow based on the pump that requires more
hydraulic motor flow.

PumpRight pumps require a constant hydraulic oil

varies with pump size and speed. The chart at right
shows the necessary oil flow for each pump model at
varying fertilizer flows.

1. Run the fertilizer system in the field at the
maximum rate and ground speed.
2. Turn down the hydraulic flow slowly while
watching the pump flow (Volume / Minute).
3. Observe when the Volume / Minute begins to
drop.
4. Turn the hydraulic flow back up slightly
This setting will provide the Pump Right pump just
enough oil for your application rate.

If running with the bypass open (only recommended
when 2 motors are operated in series) this process
will minimize the oil circulated in the bypass loop,
leaving more oil flow for other hydraulic functions.

Valve Calibration
Setup &
Operation
AF
T
The Valve Calibration sets the system
operating parameters and should be
performed for best results. The system needs
to be set up with liquid in the tank and be in a
place where liquid can be dispensed. Follow
the instructions on the screen to run the
calibration procedure. The procedure will take
1 or 2 minutes to complete as it cycles through
a number of steps. When the calibration is
complete, the control shuts down
automatically. The calibration data is
automatically stored.
R
From the Channel Setup Screen, select Calib
Param to see the Calibration Parameters. If
the system is not controlling properly, the
Valve Calibration procedure can be rerun or
these numbers (most likely the System Gain
or Prop Gain) can be adjusted. D
From the Channel Setup Screen, K-Fact Cal
can be selected to verify the actual flowmeter
calibration of the system. The electromagnetic
flowmeter in a SureFire measures very
accurately, but it is good to run a catch test to
verify that the system is set up and operating
properly. In doing a K-Factor Cal test, it is
important to catch a large enough volume of
liquid to minimize sampling errors. A 100%
catch test is best. If the results of the test
change the K-Factor slightly, SureFire
recommends using the published value. If
there is a large discrepancy, run the test again
or check for other system settings that may be
in error. 396-00xxxx SureFire PumpRight for Dickey-john Virtual Terminal Control

Troubleshooting
G
Pump Will Not Turn
Turn hydraulics off, go to the SureFire PWM valve and use the manual override on
top of the electric coil to manually open the valve (Manual Override UP = valve fully
open). Turn hydraulics on at a low flow only as the valve is 100% open. Try
hydraulic lever in opposite direction. Does the pump turn? If it turns, your problem
is electric / electronic. If the pump still does not turn, you have a hydraulic problem.
Hydraulics Problem
1. Leave the manual override open on the
SureFire valve.
2. Check the hose routings. The “P” port
on the SureFire valve should hook to
pressure. The “T” port is the return that
should flow back to the tractor.
3. Try hoses in a different hydraulic
remote. Inspect hydraulic connectors
for damage or restrictions.
AF
T
Electric / Electronic Problem
1. Close manual override (lock down)
2. Go to Diagnostic screen.
3. Verify hydraulics are on.
4. In manual mode, hold down “+” button
for a few seconds. A single tap of this
button produces a very small change in
signal to the valve, so you must hold it.
5. Take a metal object and hold it next to
the coil. If the coil is working, you will
feel the magnetic pull.
6. If no magnetic force is felt, disconnect
the PWM valve connector and check
voltage. You will need 6-12 volts to get
hydraulic valve to open.
7. If 6-12 volts is not present, check
harnesses and review control valve
type setup.

Section Valve(s) will not move
Troubleshooting
1. Go to Diagnostic screen, to investigate this issue.
2. Turn section valve switches on switch box on and off.
3. Do you have a problem with 1 valve or all valves?
All or multiple valves don’t work
1. Generally, follow the same steps as for
a single valve. However, concentrate
on checking for constant voltage on
Pins A & B.
2. This problem could also be related to
configuration. Review Setup to make
sure sections are correct in controller.
AF
T
One Valve doesn’t work
1. Check the harness connection to that
valve. It is a 3 Pin Weather Pack
connector. See Section D for wiring
diagrams

2. Check voltage pin A to Pin B. Must be
12 volts.
3. If voltage is present on pins A&B of
3 pin connection to valve, then
check pin C to Pin B. This should
be 12 volts when the valve is
commanded on or open, this should
be zero volts when valve is off or
closed.
4. If constant voltage (Pins A&B) and
switched voltage (Pins C&B) are
present, inspect, repair or replace
the valve.

Troubleshooting

Application Rate Fluctuates
Troubleshooting
First, you need to determine if the fluctuation is caused by the controller sending
fluctuating signals to the valve.
1. Inspect & clean pump inlet strainer. Strange flow rate fluctuations are very often due to an
obstruction to the pump inlet. Inspect plumbing from tank to pump.
OR
AF
T
1. Go to Diagnostic screen.
2. Turn the system on in Manual mode and watch the flow in GPM.
3. Is the flow steady within a very small range? For example a fluctuation from 2.3 to 2.5 GPM
would be considered normal. A fluctuation from 2-3 GPM is a problem. If only a small normal
fluctuation is seen, skip steps 4-8 and proceed to “Application Rate Fluctuates in Field …….. “
below.
4. If there is a large fluctuation, observe the system flow. Is the discharge a steady stream; are the
flow indicator balls floating steady?
5. If visually the flow is steady, but the display reports a fluctuation in GPM, inspect the flowmeter.
See section B for flowmeter information.
6. If visually the flow is unsteady, the flowmeter is working correctly reporting a flow problem. Is the
pump turning steady or surging? If the pump is surging reduce the System gain or Prop gain in
Calib Param.
7. Look for any type of obstruction in the pump inlet. Clean the strainer. If continually plugging the
strainer investigate fertilizer quality and necessary strainer size.
Application Rate fluctuates in field, but flow in manual mode is stable.
R
This problem indicates the PWM gain needs changed. The system is surging because the controller
is “hunting” for the correct flow.
1. Go to Calib Param Screen.
2. Change the settings by reducing the System gain or Prop. Gain.
3. Consider running the Valve Calibration procedure again.
Application Rate is slow to get to the Target Rate
1. You may need to increase the valve calibration. Go to Calib Param.
2. Change the settings by increasing the System or Prop. Gain slightly.
D
No Flow shown on display but liquid is being pumped
1. Unplug flowmeter. With voltmeter, check for 12 volts between pins B&C of flowmeter connector ). If 12
volts not present, inspect wiring harness and troubleshoot all connections per schematic (see Section D).
2. If 12 volts is present, then conduct a tap test. Go to setup and change the flow cal to 100. Have a
second person watch GPM on the display while other person taps (use a short piece of wire or a paper
clip) between pins A&C of flowmeter connector. A flow value should show up indicating the wiring is not
damaged.
3. If flow display responded to the tap test, your wiring to that point is good. If still not fixed, inspect adapter
harness and test continuity per schematic (see Section D).
4. Replace flowmeter.

Fertilizer System Flow Verification
G
I can’t get up to my desired rate. How much flow is required?
Can I achieve a new application rate with my current system?
How much oil does my PumpRight need?
Troubleshooting
Follow the steps below:
1. Use the Fertilizer System Flow Charts on the next two pages to find your required flow. First,
locate the chart for your implement size. Next, find your operating speed on the left side and
your application rate on the top. Record the flow in gallons per minute for your maximum
speed and rate and your minimum speed and rate.
AF
T
A. Maximum Flow __________________ GPM (Max Rate & Max Speed)
B. Minimum Flow ___________________ GPM (Min Rate & Min Speed)
2. Locate your pump model on the chart on this page. Will the pump model provide the maximum
flow you need from above?
3. Find your flowmeter model in the chart on this page. Will the flowmeter work at both the
maximum and minimum flow your recorded in step 1? If not, a different flowmeter is required.
4. If using section valves you must complete this step.
A. Minimum Flow (from above) ÷ Total Rows = ______________ GPM / Row
B. GPM / Row (from line above) x Rows per section = _______GPM / Section
Will your flowmeter measure the minimum GPM / section?

Recommended Care and Maintenance

Maintenance
& Parts
Air Bladder
Winterization
AF
T
PumpRight pumps have an air bladder to smooth the pump output flow. It is recommended to run this
bladder at 20% of working pressure. So if your system operates at 50 psi, charge the air bladder to 10 psi.
Due to the small size of the air bladder, very little air is needed. SureFire recommends charging a portable
air tank to the correct pressure, then attach to the bladder valve to charge the air bladder to the same
pressure as your air tank.
SureFire recommends flushing your fertilizer pump and complete system with adequate amounts of water
first. Next, use RV antifreeze to winterize your system by pumping an adequate amount through all
components. At the beginning of the next season, begin with water to verify the system is in working order
with no leaks.
Change Pump Oil Annually
PumpRight pumps use an internal oil lubricated crankshaft and connecting rod design. The oil is held in an
external reservoir with level indicators. Hypro oil is recommended for the pump. This is a non-detergent
SAE30 weight oil. If not available, hydraulic jack oils are a similar non-detergent formulation. Annual oil
changes are recommended.
To fill or drain the pump completely, the pump shaft must be turned slowly by hand. The hydraulic motor will
have to be removed to do this.
R
On some pump models, the pump will have to be removed from the mounting bracket and lifted slightly to
allow access to the oil plug.
D
When refilling the pump with oil, the shaft will again have to be rotated to fill the pump to its required oil
volume.
Diaphragm & Valve Replacement
PumpRight pumps are designed to allow very simple replacement of the two main pumping components; the
diaphragms and the inlet & outlet valves. It is a good practice to replace these annually. It is a small job that
helps ensure reliable operation during the busy season.
