Overview of the Model 150RB
Air-Assisted Electrostatic Sprayer
The heart of the 150RB sprayer is the patented MaxCharge™ nozzle.
ESS air-assisted electrostatic sprayers produce 35 to 40 micron electronically charged spray droplets that are carried to the plant canopy
in a 5.5 to 7 cfm air stream through each nozzle.
Air, liquid, and electricity enter separately at the rear of the nozzle. A
positive charge is applied to the electrode in the tip of the nozzle inducing a negatively charged liquid flow. Just before leaving the nozzle,
the liquid is sheared by the air atomizing the liquid into many thousands of 35 to 40 micron droplets trapping the negative charge. The
charged droplets leave the nozzle and are carried by the 5.5 to 7 cfm
air flow to the plant canopy.
The charged droplets are attracted to the plant material by electrostatic forces, up to 75 times the pull of gravity, evenly coat all the plant
surfaces, front, back, underside of leaves and stems. The results is
uniform spray coverage on hidden areas deep inside the plant canopy
where other sprayers miss.
The MaxCharge™ spray nozzle is
what makes ESS the industry leader
in the production of electrostatic
spraying equipment.
The MaxCharge™ nozzle is easy to clean and corrosion-proof. The interior ceramic outlet resists wear three times better than stainless steel
outlets. These features combine to give the best spray coverage on the
market.
The comparison of air-assisted electrostatic spraying versus
conventional spraying is dramatic.

Electrostatically charged droplets are
attracted to plant surfaces.
The University of California completed a series of tests to
investigate what happens to spray liquid after it leaves
the nozzle.
Conclusion: ESS technology places over 4 times the amount of
spray onto the plant surface using 1/2 the amount of chemicals.
Furthermore, they also reported that ESS sprayers send 2/3 less
chemicals to the ground and into the air. Less chemical used
overall, less waste and less drift than conventional equipment.
Imagine the environmental benefit!

Installing the ESS Supplied Driveline
Your sprayer comes with an ESS supplied Bondioli & Pavesi driveline.
This driveline connects the tractor PTO shaft to the sprayer input
shaft. To prevent damaging the sprayer it is necessary to follow specific installation steps. In addition to reading the instructions below in
this 150RB operator manual, please make sure to read the Bondioli &
Pavesi manual supplied with the driveline prior to beginning installation.
NOTICE
FAILURE TO USE THE ESS
SUPPLIED DRIVELINE WILL
VOID THE WARRANTY
WARNING! Do not stand between tractor and
sprayer while tractor is being backed to hitch.
WARNING! ADDITIONAL BALLAST MAY BE NEEDED ON
THE FRONT OF THE TRACTOR FOR STABLE OPERATION
AND TRANSPORT OF THE SPRAYER. SEE TRACTOR
OPERATOR’S MANUAL FOR RECOMMENDED WEIGHTS.
READ THE MANUAL SUPPLIED WITH YOUR BONDIOLI &
PAVESI DRIVELINE BEFORE INSTALLING.
Your Bondioli and Pavesi manual is
INSTALLATION STEPS:
fastened to the sprayer’s driveline.
FIRST: Determine proper driveline length
First, determine if the driveline is the correct length. Begin by mounting the sprayer on the tractor’s
3-point hitch per the tractor operator manual, but do not install the driveline at this time. Due to
normal tractor equipment and implement variations the driveline may need to be shortened per the
following steps:
NEXT: Shorten the driveline (if needed)
1. Determine shortest distance the driveline will span: Raise the sprayer until the tractor PTO shaft
and the sprayer shaft are level. This represents the shortest distance the driveline will span
2. Determine tractor to sprayer distance: Measure the distance from the groove on the tractor
PTO shaft to the groove on the sprayer input shaft. Record this number.
3. Determine driveline length: Lay the fully collapsed driveline out on a flat, even surface and
measure the distance from the center of the implement yoke retaining pin to the retaining
ring (i.e. groove to groove). Record this number.
NOTICE
If the measurement taken in Step 3 is less than that of Step 2, the
driveline WILL NOT HAVE TO BE CUT. Otherwise, proceed to Step 4.
4. Determine length to cut: Subtract the measurement from #2 (tractor to sprayer distance) from the
measurement from #3 (length of driveline) and add 1 inch (25 mm) to insure there is adequate
driveline movement allowance. This is the length of the driveline that will need to be cut.
PLEASE NOTE: this length must be cut from BOTH sides of the driveline to shorten it for proper
use.
NOTICE
Telescoping tubes must always overlap by at least 1/2 of their
length in normal operation and at least 1/3 of their length
in all working conditions. VERIFY THIS BEFORE CUTTING
DRIVELINE.

Installing the Control Box
The control box should be mounted in the tractor cab at a location
within easy reach of the operator. Some examples are shown below.
Alternate Control Box Locations
In order to supply electricity to the unit harness attach the red wire
directly to the tractor battery 12-volt terminal post and the green wire
directly to the tractor ground post. Failure to ground the system properly can cause premature failure of the power supplies. To complete
installation, connect the control box to the unit using the appropriate
harness ends. It may be necessary to rotate connectors until proper
alignment is acheived. Do not use force. Once aligned, twist coupling
ring gently until a click is felt.
This is a 12-volt system. Using a 24-volt system will damage
electronics.

Adjusting the Rotating Spray Arms
In order to spray effectively, the nozzles need to be approximately 18 inches (46 cm) from the
crop. In addition, the 150RB sprayer has four ways to adjust the spray arms for maximum benefit.
The H-Frame can be raised or lowered if it needed.
Rotation
Each spray arm can be rotated from a nearly horizontal to a vertical position. Loosen the two
15/16” nuts that secure the round rotating plate (see illustration above), then rotate the arms to
the desired angle. CAUTION: Do not remove the 15/16” nuts. LOOSEN ONLY. Make sure to tighten
the nuts securely. Repeat for the other spray arm.
Width
The spray arm’s mount plate can slide the width of its frame. Loosen all four 3/4” nuts from the
back. The mount plate will then slide left or right as needed. Make sure to tighten the nuts securely. Repeat for the other mount plate.
Height
When installing the H-frame choose the bolt on location that will place the nozzle tips with the
extensions in the lowest position apporximately 24 inches below the anticipated height of the
hanging bunches for overhead style trellis systems. For gabled trellis systems, place the grape area
in the center of the boom when adjusted for rotation.
Additional adjustment and fine tuning can be done by adjusting the height of the 3 point hitch
and utilizing the extension adjustment.

Extension
The arm that connects the spray arm to the rotating plate
extends for an additional 4 inches (10 cm) on each side.
Loosen the two 3/4” jam nuts and their bolts, then slip the
arm out to the desired position. Do not pull the arm out of
the rotating plate. Tighten the bolts first, then tighten each
jam nut to prevent the bolt from working loose. Repeat for
the other connecting arm.
It’s best to make these adjustments one at a time.
Take care to avoid straining the
air and liquid connections.
Inspect all connections after adjusting the sprayer arms.
Make sure all bolts are secure
before moving the sprayer.
Operating Instructions
Fill the main liquid tank with water. Wettable powder chemicals should
be pre-mixed before adding to the tank; liquid chemicals may be
added directly to the main sprayer tank. Follow all instructions on the
chemical or pesticide manufacturer’s label.
Operating the sprayer without water in the tank will cause
damage to the centrifugal pump seals! This type of damage
is not covered by your warranty.

Setting the Air Pressure
With the tractor just above idle speed, engage the PTO and increase
the tractor speed until the air pressure reads 15 PSI. The blower
is equipped with a pop-off valve that protects the blower from
overpressure. The loud hissing noise created by the air escaping
from the open pop-off valve will alert you to slow the tractor PTO
speed until the pop-off valve closes. At this point, the blower will be
supplying the correct airflow needed for spraying.
It is normal for a small amount of air to leak from the pop-off valve
during routine operation. The operating air pressure should be 15 PSI.
Setting the Liquid Pressure
Turn on the “MAIN POWER” switch and verify that the hour meter
is working. Now, turn on the “SPRAY” switch, which turns on the
motorized ball valve that control the nozzles. The nozzles will begin to
spray.
Correct sequence for turning on the
Sprayer controls.
At the front of the sprayer, left of the liquid pressure gauge is a gate
valve labeled “LIQUID PRESSURE VALVE.” This valve restricts the return
flow of liquid to the tank. Opening (turning counter-clockwise) the
liquid pressure valve will decrease pressure and closing it (turning
clockwise) will increase pressure. When the valve is fully closed, some
liquid will still be able to return to the tank to maintain tank agitation.
Fully closing the valve will minimize the tank agitation. Liquid pressure
at the factory will be set between 20–30 PSI in order to achieve a
nominal 150 ml/minute flow (± 10%) out of each nozzle.
Nozzle Adjustment
Use the graduated cylinder found in the sprayer parts kit to check the
flow from each nozzle before spraying. Any flashing or small pieces
of debris that have broken loose during testing or in transportation
should be cleaned out at this time. Follow the procedure outlined in
the Cleaning and Maintenance section to do so.
Determine the average of the liquid volume readings over the entire
sprayer to determine the nozzle flow rate to use when applying chemicals. Refer to the Calibration and Field Operation section for determining gallons per acre (GPA) based on your measured nozzle flow.
Utilizing the double swivles on the nozzle assemblies, direct the spray
pattern towards the target as desired. For normal spray applications,
the nozzles should be at least 18 inches (50 cm) from the plant canopy.
Nozzles can be angled if necessary to achieve minimum spray distance.
In some conditions it may be necessary to lower the nozzles and angle
slightly forward to combat wind.

Operating Electrostatics
When the air supply reaches 4 PSI, the air switch will activate and supply electricity to the spray boom, turning the nozzle LED lights on.
The LED lights on will glow for each power supply operating. If an LED
does not illuminate it may be an indication that there is a fault with the
power supply. If replacement is necessary refer to page 12.
Following the procedure in the Cleaning and Maintenance section
on page 9, set the voltage meter (provided with your sprayer) to
measure current in the micro-amp (µA) range. Check the charge level
of all nozzles. Readings will vary from 9 to 18 µA depending upon
conditions. A reading of 0.00 µA indicates a nozzle that is not receiving
voltage. A low reading from 2 to 6 µA indicates that the nozzle has
some debris present and needs to be cleaned. If all the nozzles read
low, the sprayer is not grounded properly.
Shutting Down the Sprayer
It is important to shut the sprayer down correctly so that the
liquid lines will be purged of chemical.
First turn off the liquid flow by shutting off the spray switches and the
electrostatic switch. Let the air flow purge the remaining liquid from
the supply lines in the boom. Wait a few seconds until the nozzles quit
spraying. They may spit intermittently, but this is normal. When the
liquid has cleared from the boom supply lines, you should turn off the
PTO drive. Then shut down the tractor..
NOTE: Failure to disengage the PTO before shutting down
the tractor can cause damage to the supercharger.

Calibration And Field Operation
The model 150RB Grape Sprayer is a low volume sprayer. Therefore,
tank mixes must be adjusted accordingly. Use the Calibration Guide
(next page) to determine GPA (Gallons per acre). After determining
the desired amount of active ingredient per acre, mix the equivalent
amount of active ingredients for acres to be sprayed.
The average nozzle flow rate can be adjusted and operated from 120
to 180 ml/min. Outside this range, nozzle charging is poor and spray
deposition is low. Optimum performance is achieved by setting the
liquid flow of the nozzles from 120 to 160 ml/min. Adjust the liquid
pressure using the Liquid Pressure Valve. A variety of flow disks have
been provided in the Sprayer’s Spare Parts Kit. A lower-valued disk will
reduce the flow; a higher-valued disk will increase the flow.
Using the H-frame height adjustment and the tractor’s height adjustment for the three-point hitch, adjust the spray bars so that the nozzles
are about 18 inches from the crop. At this distance, the nozzle air will
push the charged spray into the plant canopy and provide adequate
overlap of the spray cloud from each nozzle. If the booms are too
close to the crop, there will not be enough room for the spray cloud to
develop and coverage will be uneven. This is known as striping. If the
spray bars are too far away, then spray may not reach into the canopies or spray drift may occur. In windy conditions, the nozzles can be
angled forward and the spray bars moved closer to the crop.
When mixing chemicals for a low volume sprayer, it is good practice to
conduct a jar test to determine if the chemicals to be mixed are compatible. If they are not, then investigate alternative chemicals or use a
compatibility agent to maintain the chemicals in suspension. It is also a
good idea to treat the water with a pH agent.
How to conduct a jar test
Needed:
Solutions of chemicals in
approximate dilutions
Jar with lid
Gloves and Safety
Glasses
After mixing solutions of
the desired chemicals, place
them in a large jar, cap it securely, and shake vigorously.
Carefully observe the interaction between the chemical
compounds. If the water
becomes milky or cloudy, the
combined solution may plug
the nozzles. Let the jar sit for
one to two hours. If there is
precipitate on the bottom
of the jar, then seek another
combination of chemicals.
ESS does not recommend the use of wetting agents or
spreader-stickers.

Calibration Guide
Use the following formula to determine the total gallons per acre
(GPA):
GPA = 5940 × GPM
MPH × W
where the variables stand for:
1.
GPM = Gallons per minute per nozzle. To determine gallons per
minute per nozzle, first measure the flow rate of one nozzle in
milliliters/minute with a graduated cylinder. Convert the volume
of the flow rate from milliliters to gallons by dividing the volume
by 3,800 (1 gallon = 3,800 milliliters). The normal flow rate of an
ESS nozzle is between 120 and 200 milliliters per minute (0.0316
and 0.05263 gallons per minute). The flow rate can be varied by
adjusting liquid pressure.
Conversion: 1gallon = 3,800 milliliters
120 ml/min
150 ml/min
180 ml/min
200 ml/min
So,
120 ml
= 0.0316 GPM

= 0.0316 GPM
= 0.0395 GPM
= 0.0474 GPM

Cleaning and Maintenance
It is very important to follow all the maintenance and cleaning procedures
to ensure that the electrostatic sprayer will function properly. Although
the MaxCharge™ nozzle will outperform all electrostatic spray technology
on the market, regular cleaning will ensure peak operating performance.
The sprayer can be washed down with a pressure washer prior to any
individual component being cleaned; take extreme caution around
sensitive components. As a precaution, apply dielectrical silicone grease
to all connections. This will prevent water damage to the electrical system.
Cleaning Nozzles
Disassemble the nozzle by unthreading the electrode
cover. Pull the hood off. The nozzle consists of eight
main components:
1.Hood
2. External O-ring
3. Nozzle Cover
4. Insulator Ring
5.
6.
7.
8.
Nozzle Base
Liquid Inlet
HV Electrical Connection
Air Inlet Piping
Apply enough dielectric silicone greas to
coat the metal pin and socket
connections of the nozzles.
Also use dielectric silicone grease to
protect the low-voltage
circular connectors.
The nozzles are mounted to the air tube using two
brass nipples and two swivel connectors. This allows
the operator to aim the nozzles in directions that are
appropriate for travel speeds and wind conditions.
The wiring harnesses and liquid lines are mounted
inside PVC protective covering that protects parts
from chemical and physical damage.
Disassemble the nozzle by unthreading the
electrode cover. Pull the hood off. The nozzle
consists of eight main components. The diagram
on the right page identifies the nozzle components
and the air, liquid, and electrical connections.

7
Simple cleaning of the nozzle interior and exterior
with soap and water after each day of use is the
most important thing you can do to ensure trouble
free operation. Cleaning each day avoids longterm chemical buildup that eventually causes
clogs, poor spray patterns and shortens nozzle life.
After each day’s use, remove the nozzle cover and
clean any debris from around the nozzle tip. Clean
the ceramic outlet and all interior and exterior
surfaces. It is important to clean inside the hood
and the two cavities. Wipe clean the exterior of the
wires and all hoses and fittings connected to the
nozzle. Put dielectric silicon grease on any electrical
components.

After cleaning, make sure the internal (located in the
nozzle base) and external o-rings are still in place. Put
the insulator ring back on the nozzle base and screw
the nozzle cover back. Replace the hood, pushing it
up against the external o-ring.
The nozzle cover should be hand tight. Never use pliers or other
tools to tighten it. The insulator ring should be loose.

To drain the 150RB unit, remove the rights side door. With the
pump assembly exposed, open the ball valve with the drain piping.
After properly disposing of any remaining spray solution, flush
the 150RB sprayer with a mixture of water and a cleaning agent.
ESS recommends the use of NUTRA-SOL cleaner which can be
purchased from ESS.
Nutra-Sol cleaner is an excellent neutralizer of chemical deposits in
your tank and liquid lines. The use of this product will keep your equipment operating at peak performance. The recommended mixing ratio is 4 ounces in 12.5 gallons of water (113 grams in 47 liters
of water). Disassemble the main bowl filter and clean the screen. Before and after each use disassemble the flow disk assemblies and
clean the enclosed screens.
Flow Disks
The illustration below shows where the flow disk assembly is found on
the sprayer. The assembly, centrally located on the back of the unit, is
used to regulate the liquid supply to the spray boom. Since chemical
build up and clogging can drastically effect the performance of the
unit it is imperative that these assemblies are checked and cleaned
regularly. Using a 13/16” and 11/16” wrench, separate the regulator
cap from the adaptor, being cautious not the lose or mix up the flow
disk, as they can be different from spray bar to spray bar. With all ball
valves open, operate the sprayer to thoroughly flush all lines. After
cleaning reassemble in the orientation shown to the right; be cautious
not to over-tighten, as you may damage the assembly.
Do not perform this procedure without at least 5 gallons of water
in the main tank. The centrifugal pump is operating during this
procedure and damage to the seal will occur if the pump is operated dry for even a short time.

Repairing Power Supply Wires
Option 1: Using Blazing Wire Connectors
The red or black power supply wiring will occasionally break during
normal field operation. The wiring can be repaired easily in the field.
ESS recommends using Blazing Wire Connectors™; several are provided
in your Spare Parts Kit. These connectors are waterproof and vibrationproof. Although you will need a pocketknife or wire stripper, no other
tools are necessary to repair a broken wire.
Here are the instructions from www.blazingproducts.com/products/connectors/LV9/instructions.html.

Option 2: Soldering
If you do not have one of the black Blazing Connectors, you will need
to repair the broken wiring harness with more traditional methods.
Please note: It is important to use the heavy-walled heat shrink tubing
(part # 6601) for repairs. Do not use the thin-walled heat-shrink tubing
or electrical tape. These thinner insulating materials will break down
under the harsh duty conditions your sprayer operates in. An imperfect
repair will cause electrical current to “leak” and lower the performance
of the nozzle-charging system.
First, strip back the ends of the broken wires by cutting the red outer
casing, then carefully cut the inner casing to expose the wire itself.
Cross the wire ends in an “X” shape. Now, twist the right end away from
you. Make sure you have good contact between the bare wires. Twist
as tightly as you can.
Now, work with the left wire end. Twist it toward you. By reversing the
twisting direction, you will make a stronger connection and the wire
ends will be less likely to pull apart. Again, twist as tightly as you can.
If you have soldering equipment available, solder the wires together.
!

Caution! Always be careful with heated tools like soldering irons.
Remembering to use the thick-walled heat shrink tubing, slip the tubing over the open end of the wire and position it so that the bare wire
is in the middle of the heat shrink tubing.
Use a heat gun or small butane torch to shrink the shrink tubing. Apply
heat evenly, starting at the middle of the tube and working outward.
Just before you finish shrinking the tubing, apply glue inside it to seal
your repaired connection from moisture.

Testing Nozzle charges
Test the nozzle for charging using the image below to ensure that the meter is
properly set to measure the current of the spray cloud in micro-amps (µA).
Meter correctly set to 200 µA position. When finished with testing,
be sure to turn the meter off.
Red lead correctly
placed in the “µA” position to read microamps. The meter will
not read correctly
if this lead is in the
wrong socket.
Ground lead correctly placed in the
“COM” port.
NOTICE
Make sure to test your
nozzle liquid charges at
standard operating liquid
and air pressures.
To test your spray charge with the multimeter
1. Turn the meter on and set it to the 200 µA range.
2. Ground the multimeter’s black lead to the spray bar or by pinching the metal
probe between the forefinger and thumb of your hand.
3. Hold paddle on the red lead about 1 inch (2.4 cm) from the tip of nozzle outlet
while it is spraying and the electrostatics are turned on. Read the charge on
the meter.
Ideally the spray charge will be above 10 µA. In the image above the nozzle spray
has an excellent reading of 26 µA. If the charge is below 10 µA you will not achieve
good electrostatic ‘wraparound’. For optimal performance, clean any nozzles that
are below 10 µA by following the procedures outlined in the Cleaning and Maintenance section.

Routine Inspection
Restriction-service Indicator
Location of the Vacuum restrictionservice indicator
Replace the filter immediately if the
gauge shows red. This must be checked
while the blower is running.
Once the filter is covered
by dust, it reaches its
maximum efficiency level.
Pre-cleaner and Filter
While the unit is running, inspect the restriction-service indicator on
the filter housing. If indicator shows red reset while running to verify
accuracy. If indicator continues to show red replace the primary filter.
Filters that appear very
dirty may still contain a
great amount of service
life. Rely on the restrictionservice indicator for
the most efficient and
economical use of
the filter.
Examine the pre-cleaner drop tube before every work session. Empty
the drop tube by squeezing the ends together. Collected dust and dirt
will fall to the ground.
Check the blower drive belts and the pump drive belt for the correct
tension and also for any signs of wear.

Maintenance Schedule
Daily
Check the oil level at the sight class gauge on the gearbox and
blower. Refill to proper leves if necessary.
Check filter screens at flow disk.
Check main liquid filter.
Check restriction indicator with sprayer running. See page 16.
Yearly
Apply dielectric silicone grease to all wiring harness pin assemblies and all nozzle electrical connections.
Drain and replace the gearbox oil every 500 hours.
Thoroughly clean all nozzles with Nutra-Sol™ by following the
procedure outlined in the Cleaning and Maintenance section
(p. 10). Use a soft bristle toothbrush and pipe cleaners to remove
any chemical deposits. The nozzle parts may have to soak in the
cleaning solution to soften hardened deposits. Using the soft
bristle brush or a soft cloth, clean the interior and exterior of the
nozzle base. Make sure the o-ring is replaced before reassembly of
the nozzle cover.
Apply enough dielectric silicone grease
to coat the metal pin and socket
connections of the nozzles.
Also use dielectric silicone grease to
protect the low-voltage connectors.
Thoroughly inspect all wiring harnesses and red high voltage wiring for cuts or abrasions that show black streaks. This is evidence
of electrical arcing. Any cuts, abrasions or joints that show this arcing should be repaired with thick-wall heat shrink tubing following the procedure outlined in the Repairing Power Supply Wires
section (pgs. 12–13).
If there is any evidence of leaking or unexplained loss of pressure
output, inspect (and replace if necessary) the centrifugal pump
seal following the exact instructions found in the Hypro operator‘s
manual.
Drain and replace the blower oil every 500 hours.
It’s important to keep your MaxCharge™
nozzles clean and working efficiently.
