SAFETY PRECAUTIONS CONTINUED

Before attempting to install or operate the equipment, read and understand the manual thoroughly. Failure
to comply with this instruction constitutes improper use and will invalidate the warranty.

Before using your pesticide, STOP, Read the label.

Mixing pesticides is a most dangerous time as it involves handling the concentrated material. For toxic
compounds, use protective clothing such as overalls, hat, gloves, boots and respirator.

When using concentrated sprays, full protection is necessary.

When using diluted sprays, wear a hat, long-sleeved cotton overalls, and boots. If you use pesticides
regularly, it is a good idea to always wear a respirator to avoid cumulative effect.

Other protection may be required. Check the label. It may have specific directions for the particular
chemical.

Protective clothing should be properly cared for. Rinse heavily contaminated clothes in the open before
washing in the laundry.

Wash and dry protective clothing every day, but keep them separate from other washing.

Respirators need special care. Clean your respirator after spraying. Use soapy water then rinse and allow
drying completely before storing in a clean plastic bag. Replace canisters in respirator after eight hours
use.

INSTALLATION
ATV Mounting
NOTE
The QS upright bars can be adjusted in 50mm increments on the sprayer centre frame.
218/318
The 218/318 are general purpose C.D.A. booms for pastoral and other applications.
No QS Frame
Bolt the boom to an appropriate surface using the boom mounting holes.
With QS Frame
Install the QuickSmart™ frame as detailed in the QuickSmart™ mounting instructions.
With QSA Frame
Fit the QS upright bars to the centre frame of the sprayer using M10x30 bolts and nuts supplied. Fit with mounting
lugs facing inwards. Fit the sprayer to the QuickSmart™ frame and unfold arms. To set:
 218 atomisers at correct width spacings, fold arms around until they line up with centre frame.
 318 arms diagonally fold out 180º, the centre probes fold down 90ºand lock.
Set atomisers to required spraying height by fitting the QS mount bars on the high or low position, and/or adjusting
the position of the mount bars on the centre frame of the sprayer.
Boom Height
The top of the atomiser’s spinning disc should be 600mm above the target. If this is not achievable (for very tall
targets such as Californian Thistle) mount the boom as high as possible.
WIRING
Place the switch box on the vehicle to suit the operator. Use the Velcro attached to the base of the switch box to
secure it to the vehicle.
Connect the battery connections to the vehicle battery taking care to ensure that the red wire is connected to the
positive battery terminal.
Connect the cables to the sprayer using the connectors provided. The connectors may be removed and the cables
shortened if required, but care must be taken to ensure that the wires are reconnected correctly.
CAUTION
Failure to connect the wiring correctly will result in the atomisers spinning in reverse. This will adversely affect the
operation of the sprayer. The atomiser has the correct direction of rotation labelled on the motor.
Unplug the sprayer pump connection and reconnect the pump to the appropriate cable (pump) from the control
box.
The unused sprayer battery cable may be removed or left in place and stowed for reconnection when the sprayer is
removed from the vehicle.
If the handlebar mounted switch is preferred to control the pump (ATV only), leave the appropriate cable (pump)
from the sprayer control box unconnected.

PLUMBING
NOTE
A combination of heating the end of each hose with hot water and applying Vaseline to the hose tail will make
installation easier.
NOTE
Use the ‘E’ clamps on 8.5mm hose and the ‘F’ clamps on 10mm hose.
Delivery Hose
Each CDA Boom is supplied with a dry-break kit. Once installed, this kit allows quick and easy interchanging of
spray equipment.

THE PROCESS OF SPRAYING
Conventional pressure nozzle spray booms waste between 60-70% of their output due to the broad spectrum of
droplet sizes they produce. Typically 10-1000 microns in size. (1 micron = 1/1000th of a millimetre)
Potentially:
Small Droplets:
Medium Droplets:
Large Droplets:
Droplets less than 70 microns drift In a moderate breeze
10-40 micron droplets will drift hundreds of metres.
250 micron droplets move only 2-3 metres
Droplets greater than 350 microns run off
Optimum droplet size is said to be around 200-250 microns for herbicidal spraying.
NOTE
A 800 micron droplet contains 8 times the volume of a 400 micron droplet.
A 400 micron droplet contains 8 times the volume of a 200 micron droplet.
Droplet Size Comparison: 800 micron droplet (left) and 400 micron droplet (right)
- 12 -
THEORY OF OPERATION
Spray fluid is placed in the tank where it is drawn through a suction filter and pumped to a control valve. The
excess flow from the valve is returned to the tank via the bypass hose. Fluid at a nominal pressure of 1.3 bar is
metered to the atomisers via orifice plates, and line strainers.
At the atomiser, fluid is delivered into the spinning atomiser disc via two feed nozzles. From the base, centrifugal
force propels the fluid up the fluted sides of the atomiser disc and the droplets of a controlled size form between the
gaps of the teeth around the edge of the atomiser. Centrifugal force evenly distributes the droplets over a 360degree diameter from the atomiser.
Droplet size is controlled by the constant speed of the spinning atomiser disc.

Place water in the spray tank.
Fold the boom arms out.
Turn on the pump, (switch labeled ‘PUMP’ on the switch box). Leave the atomisers switched off.
Ensure hoses and lines are free of kinks and blockages.
Allow time for the air to be expelled from the hoses and lines.
Water should flow evenly over the edge of the blue atomiser disc.
With the pump still on, set the pressure in the spray line to approximately 20psi (1.3 bar), by turning the
bypass regulator stem on the control unit.
8. Turn on the atomiser discs (switch labelled “DISC” on the switch-box). Even-sized droplets will be formed
by the atomisers, thus creating the spray.

With the sprayer operating, catch the fluid in a large pail for one minute.
Using a measuring jar, measure the amount of fluid dispensed.
The flow must be 1.0 L/Min for the large droplet and 500 ml/Min for the medium droplet.
To adjust the flow rate, alter the pressure at the control valve
Flows from each atomiser should be within five percent of each other. If not, check for blockages,
incorrect or damaged flow Plates, or poor pump performance.
3. Select Travel Speed
A CONSTANT vehicle speed MUST be maintained. The maximum recommended vehicle speed is 12 kph. Use 6 to
8 kph for rough conditions. Check your speedometer or tachometer with the tank half full of water.

4. Add Chemical to the Tank
The following tables show the litres or kilograms of chemical to put in your tank depending on your Droplet Size,
Vehicle Speed and Chemical Rate per Hectare.
Use the table according to your tank size. For example, use the 50 litre table if you have a 50 litre tank.
Determine your CHEMICAL Rate per Hectare by referring to the chemical container or information leaflet supplied
with the chemical. (WARNING: Ignore recommended “Total Application Rates” or “Water Rates” as they often refer
to spraying with pressure nozzles). If CDA spray rates are listed on the chemical label rates, apply these rates.
Half fill the tank with CLEAN water, add the chemical then fill with CLEAN water.
- 14 -
NOTE
Ensure chemical is thoroughly mixed with water before spraying.
EXAMPLE: 50 litre tank, MEDIUM droplet, 3 litres of chemical per hectare, travel speed 12 kph. Therefore, 10.8
litres of chemical in the tank, the rest is CLEAN water.

APPLICATION FORMULA
Area Covered per Tank
The area cover per full tank (Ha) =
Amount of Chemical in a Full Tank (L or Kg)
Chemical Rate per Hectare (L or Kg)
Spray Volume
Spray Volume per Hectare (L/Ha) =
Tank Volume (L)
(Hectares Sprayed with a Full Tank)
Spray Volume
Time to Empty a Full Tank (Mins) =
Tank Volume (L)
(Total Volume/Min from the Atomisers)
- To spray an area LESS than that covered by a full tank:
- Chemical Per Tank (L or Kg) = (Chemical Rate per Hectare) x (Hectares to Spray)
2
- Total Spray Volume per Area (L/m ) =
Volume of Tank (L) x Chemical for the Tank (L or Kg)
Amount of Chemical for a Full Tank (L or Kg)
USING THE PREVIOUS EXAMPLE:
50 litre tank, MEDIUM droplet, 3 litres of chemical per hectare, travel
speed (from page 15) 12KPH, and 10.8 litres of chemical in a full tank.
Total area sprayed with a full tank is 3.6 hectares.
THEREFORE:
If only 2 hectares are to be sprayed, 5.9 litres of chemical and 21.9 litres of
clean water are required for a total spray solution volume of 27.8 litres.
NOTE
With ATV mounted 50, 80 and 100 litre tanks, only use powders that stay in suspension for more than the
time taken to empty the tank.
CHEMICAL ADVICE
C-Dax Ltd or their agents cannot make recommendations or give advice as to the use of chemicals and cannot
accept responsibility for any damage, injury or other consequence for disregarding this warning notice. Contact
your chemical supplier for advice.
WARNING
Mixing chemicals is a most dangerous activity as it involves handling the concentrated material. For toxic
compounds, use protective clothing such as overalls, hat, gloves, boots and respirator.
When using diluted sprays, wear at least a hat, long-sleeved cotton overalls, and boots. If you use pesticides
regularly, it is a good idea to always wear a respirator to avoid accumulation of toxins in the body. Other protection
may be required. Check the label for specific directions for the particular chemical.
Purchasers must ensure that operators of these machines are fully aware of the dangers of spraying chemicals.
- 16 -
MAINTENANCE
After Use
 At the end of spraying, flush the system three times with fresh water. Finish with a final rinse using C-Dax
Neutralise rinsing solution.
 Remove the strainer basket under the lid of the sprayer, rinse and refit.
 Remove the nut at the outlet of the pressure controller, remove the strainers and flow plates, clean them
and replace them ensuring that the nuts are finger tight.
 Clean the outside of the sprayer to remove any spray residue.
 Lubricate the spinner bearings by applying a few drops of SAE30 lubricating oil at the oil cap (if fitted,
models without oil cap have sealed bearings).
Routinely
 Check that atomiser discs rotate freely.
 Clean or replace bearings as necessary.
Annually
 Check the condition of the drive belts between the atomisers and the atomiser motors. Replace any belts
that have become slack and are slipping.
 Lubricate the break away joints with good quality grease.
CAUTION
When washing, do not direct water onto the motor. Pump motors are not waterproof.
Hard washing of pump motors will result in damage.
Filters
Your C.D.A. sprayer is fitted with three stage filtration consisting of a:
a)
Filter basket at the tank inlet,
b)
Suction filter between the tank and pump, and
c)
Check valve ‘nozzle’ filter next to the Flow Plates.
Check all filters after the first four hours of use, then at the end of each spraying session. You may need to do this
more regularly depending on the water supply and chemicals used.
Flow Plates
Check for blockages or uneven wear by calibrating. Flow Plate wear is acceptable provided flow between atomiser
heads varies by less than five percent.
Electrical
Check wiring and fuse holder to ensure good connections and no exposed wires. Repair any poor quality
connections.
WARNING
Do not store sprayer with detergent or chemical solution in the system.
WARNING
Drain fluid from pump and system before storage if there is a risk of fluid freezing in lines.
