Page 2 / 32 1.0 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND ACCIDENT PREVENTION Thermal foggers with pulse jet engines generate hot exhaust gas which may incinerate flammable objects, gases or dusts and the electrical coldfogger or ULV machines are not explosion proof. It is therefore mandatory to read and strictly observe the operating manual and the safety instructions below. Failure to comply with these may result in fire or accidents. Observe the EU Directives 89/391/EEC (Article 6) and 1999/92/EC (ATEX 137), e.g. Article 5 Intended Use The pulsFOG foggers are designed for fogging all kinds of pesticides, disinfectants and pest control agents authorized and approved for this type of application insofar as there are no risks for the environment, human beings and animals involved. The following type specifications must be observed: The pulsFOG thermal fogger types K-10-STD, K-22-STD, K-30-STD are suitable for plant protection in enclosed greenhouses. They can be used for fogging aqueous liquids or wettable powders with a water content of more than 60%. Application of flammable liquids is prohibited. Fogging of non-flammable peroxides or other non-flammable fire accelerants releasing oxygen is only permitted with an automatic cut-off device. The pulsFOG thermal foggers K-10-SP, K-10-DESERT, K-10-O, K-22-O, K-22-10-O, K-22-20-O, K-30-O, K-30-10-O, K-30-20-O, all of them without air agitator, are suitable for epidemics control, plant protection in enclosed greenhouses, warehouse pest control in enclosed spaces from the outside to the inside and for the disinfection of cleaned empty animal stables with agents tested and approved for this purpose. These units with an “O” type designation are suitable for flammable (flash point > 70°C) and non-flammable fogging liquids. For safety reasons, fogging of flammable products or non-flammable products releasing oxygen (e.g. peroxides) requires using the automatic cut-off device on the unit. “O”-type units are not suitable for fogging suspensions (because of the risk of clogging). The pulsFOG thermal fogger K-10-SP-SAN is suitable for use in sewerage systems from the outside to the inside and for termite and vole control using approved products. All pulsFOG BIO thermal foggers are suitable for fogging flammable and non-flammable fogging liquids including peroxides (H2O2), suspensions and sensitive biological preparations. The pulsFOG series SUPER PRO and TracFOG are designed to apply liquid oil or water based pesticides including suspensions with a concentration of < 6%. Acidic chemicals are not approved for the use with these units Warning: Repeated application of acidic products (e.g. peroxides: corrode copper (brass) and aluminum parts) requires acid resistant version of the unit. Contrary to intended use Contrary to intended use and improper handling (e.g. use of non-original pulsFOG spare parts or unauthorized self-modified original spare parts) may cause hazards for people, properties and environment. With a not intended use of the unit the general permit of operation/use expires. Authorized Operator Groups The equipment is restricted to professional use by persons of age and qualified operators duly instructed by an authorized dealer 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 3 / 32 WARNING: Fire Hazard Any formation of aerosols or fogs from flammable substances or acids releasing oxygen in a mixture with air and/or dust always involves the risk of fire or explosion if there is a source of ignition. The hot exhaust gas of the engine of thermal foggers is a potential source of ignition. For this reason: Make a risk analysis and develop a strategy to prevent risks! Accordingly observe strictly the following safety instructions: • • • • • • • • • • • Do not smoke when handling the unit! Never fill fuel into the chemical tank! Whenever fogging flammable liquids – including peroxides – into enclosed spaces, always keep a fire extinguisher readily available near the unit. Take care the fire extinguisher is adapted to the disinfectant in use (e.g. fires caused by peroxides require an extinguishing agent based on water or CO2) Do not use thermal foggers to fog in rooms if there is a risk of fire, dust explosion or dust whirling up (e.g. in grain mills, non-cleaned storage silos or on floors which have not been cleaned or are covered with straw or wood dust). Stationary application of approved flammable agents (including peroxides) into enclosed spaces: ► Only from the outside to the inside using circulating air ventilation within the room. ► Only with automatic cut-off device on the unit for the disinfectant. ► Ensure a stable position of the unit on a non-inflammable support. ► Using peroxides only with pulsFOG BIO units Observe the safety data sheet (MSDS) and instructions of the fogging product. Check the flash point of flammable fogging liquids. Do not fog any liquids with a flash point of less than 70°C into enclosed spaces. Never fog more than 3 l of an approved flammable liquid or more than 10 l of a flammable aqueous liquid with a water content of less than 70 % per 1000 m³ of space! Never fog flammable liquids into a tube or tunnel without suction ventilation (explosion hazard). Exception: pulsFOG BIO units with separate water injection during operation. Do not refill fuel into the unit when the engine is still hot! The minimum cooling time is 20 minutes. Whenever performing any work on the carburetor or fuel tank, remove all sources of ignition from the vicinity and remove the spark plug cap and the batteries. Caution: a defective membrane (diaphragm) at the carburetor may lead to a fire accident. Property, Operator and Environmental Protection Observe the specified intended use of the chemical agents. In arid environments or dry seasons and if there is a general risk of fire, only operate the unit with the built-in automatic cut-off device active. Keep a fire extinguisher readily near at the unit available. Observe the application instructions and safety data sheets of the manufacturer or supplier of the active substances and fogging liquids used (however, without restricting the unit manufacturer’s safety instructions in any way). Outdoor application is only permitted with the wind calm, or at a maximum air movement of 6 km/h. Avoid application beyond the target area by keeping a safety distance to the boundary line. Always use a funnel and sieve when refilling the chemical tank. Close any product drain valves before filling the chemical tank. Wear suitable protective clothing during the preparatory work and when fogging (full-face mask with filter A2 B2-P3, protective suit, gloves, rubber boots) as well as ear protection against the engine noise. The unit shall only be accessible to duly instructed persons during operation and in the cooling phase. 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 4 / 32 • • • • • • • • • • • • • Prior to application: For safety reasons the fog tap is always closed. Check the functional safety of the unit (e.g. by trial fogging with water). Repair any loose or leaking lines. If functional safety is not ensured, do not put the unit into operation. The dosing nozzle and the nozzle holder (screw insert for the dosing nozzle) on the fogging tube of the thermal foggers must be screwed hermetically tight (never omit the heatresistant gasket). When filling the tanks with flammable liquids, handling a source of ignition is prohibited in the vicinity of the unit. In case of stationary use, ensure the stability of the unit (e.g. to prevent sliding, shaking or tilting over) on a non-flammable support. Make sure that the fresh air supply to the carburetor is unobstructed. Whenever fogging a flammable liquid into a room, all sources of ignition must have been removed from there and all electrical switches disconnected. Make sure to prevent unauthorized access to the application area (e.g. attach an access prohibition sign on the door). Close any openings of the application area and eliminate any leaks found. During application: Wear protective clothing (protective suit, gas mask with filter A2B2-P3, safety gloves and ear protection). Keep a fire extinguisher readily at hand whenever using flammable products in enclosed spaces. Stay near the unit in order to be able to intervene immediately in an emergency. Never let the unit run without supervision. Open the fog tap only with the engine running. Close the fog tap when the engine is still running. In case of misuse or an accident close the tap immediately even if the motor is not running. The thermal fogger must not stand in the fog in an enclosed space (otherwise there is a risk that the engine could stop suddenly due to the sucking of fog into the carburetor). For this reason, keep the unit away from the fog or fog from the outside to the inside. If the engine should suddenly stop unexpectedly (e.g. because of a lack of fuel or energy) during application, close the fog tap immediately and interrupt the application. Fix the problem when the unit has cooled down. When the chemical tank gets low (end of fogging), close the fog tap instantly and stop the engine immediately afterwards. If any leakage should occur on the unit or tank during fogging, immediately 1. close the fog tap, 2. stop the engine, 3. loose the cap of the chemical tank of the thermal fogger (depressurize the tank) and 4. terminate the application Do not insert the fogging tube of a thermal fogger into another tube of similar diameter for fogging (this may result in overheating of the engine and inflammation of the fog). The hot fogging tube and the hot exhaust gas of a thermal fogger must never touch or reach any flammable material. For through-wall application, the minimum distance from the fogging tube surface to the wall is: 6 cm WARNING: This product and other substances that may become airborne from its use contain chemicals, including lead and phthalates, known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to P65Warnings.ca.gov 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 5 / 32 After application: Close and lock the fogged room and attach a warning sign. Ventilate the treated room thoroughly before re-entering. Close the fuel main valve of the unit The fogging tube of the thermal fogger will still be hot for up to 30 minutes after stopping the engine. Do not touch the fogging tube! Do not transport a hot unit in an enclosed vehicle/car. If there is any fuel or active substance left in the tanks, the unit must be kept upright and fastened to prevent tilting and the tanks must be well closed. Shipping of units is only admissible with the fuel tank and the rinsed chemical tank empty. Store in a safe place, use the original cardboard box if possible; store in a dry and dustfree room, protected against tilting and only with the rinsed chemical tank empty. Drain the fuel tank if the unit is not going to be used for more than 3 weeks. Regular Maintenance Required The unit must be subjected to maintenance at regular intervals (after 50 h of operation at the latest) by a qualified person (technician), observing all applicable safety and accident prevention standards. Wear parts as well as the vibrating diaphragms of the carburetor of a thermal fogger must be replaced as described in the operating instructions by an authorized person. Warning: Worn-out vibrating diaphragms on the carburetor not replaced in time may result in an accident involving fire. Any repairs must be made by a qualified person, at the manufacturer’s works or an authorized dealer. Warning label Heat, hot surface 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc.

Page 7 / 32 3.0 TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION The unit works according to the pulse-jet principle without any mechanically moving parts. When pressing on the primer or electric starting button, a fuel/air mixture is produced in the carburetor(s), blown into the combustion chamber and ignited by the spark plug. A pulsating combustion forms at approximately 80 explosions per second, controlled by an air diaphragm valve and a fuel adjustable screw on the carburetor. A limited overpressure of 0,2 – 0,4 bar is redirected from the carburetor to the chemical tank through a chemical conveys the fogging liquid through an ON/OFF valve and a dosing (restriction) non-returntank valve. The pressure in the nozzle to the end of the exhaust pipe (thermo-pneumatic nozzle). There it is injected into the exhaust stream coming from the combustion chamber. For a fraction of a second (0,05 – 0,1 s), kinetic and thermal energy (600 – 700 kcal/litre of fogging liquid) acts on the injected liquid, which is thereby torn to ultra-fine aerosols The liquid (water, oils and glycols) partially vaporizes and converts into a visible fog by immediate condensation in the relatively cool ambient air. 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 8 / 32 4.0 PREPARATIONS FOR STARTING 4.1 Fill the fuel tank with pure common petrol (gasoline) of normal grade (also unleaded) but max. 95 octane (may be also enriched with alcohol). The maximum filling capacity is sufficient for emptying the chemical tank. When filling in fuel, always use the graduated fuel pitcher with sieve. Caution: Never start a fogging process with the fuel tank less than half filled. If fuel temperature is less than 10 °C the engine may start but without powerful run. Allow the fuel to warm up to room temperature. 4.2 Run the engine briefly and stop it again (see 5.0). 4.3 Fill the chemical tank as follows: Open the tank lid, remove the tube from the tank and hang it over the dosing nozzle on the fogging pipe. Release the tank holding strap and remove the chemical tank with the opening pointing upwards. The tank may only be filled with a maximum of 9 ltr. of fogging solution (K-10-SP = 4,5 ltr.). Use the funnel with sieve for filling. After filling, close tank with lid. Remount solution tank to the unit. Remove lid. Refit lid with passage and special white gasket. filling the fuel tank detaching the chemical tank Warning: Preferably oil qualities with a flashpoint higher than 100°C should be used (fire hazard) but never less than 70°C. Oil viscosity should be similar to diesel or kerosene but not higher than 20°centistokes. Fogging additives to improve the fog quality and the compatibility of oil and water added to the pesticides are available from pulsFOG or authorized dealers. Caution Viton hoses are not resistant to chemicals containing dichlorvos (DDVP) or Aceton as solvent. Use in that case the white Novoprene hoses from pulsFOG. filling the chemical tank 4.4 Check tightness of dosing nozzle Warning: Toxic chemicals of fogging solution may be sprayed by tank pressure onto your body and face if dosing nozzle is not well sealed. Check tightness of dosing nozzle 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 9 / 32 5.0 STARTING THE ENGINE a) Set the fog tap to the closed position. b) Open the fuel adjustable screw on the carburetor to the starting position (approx. ¼ - ⅓ turn). Attention: Opening too far would feed excessive fuel to the engine, which would cause engine and carburetor choking (flooding). (Read 5.2) . c) With your left hand press the primer slowly down several times and each time keep it pressed for a second to prolong the ignition. Do not pump more than 5 times. a) set the fog tap to the closed position Attention: With the fuel tank full, do not press the primer powerfully since this would cause carburetor flooding (excessive fuel injected). (Read 5.2). 5.1 Adjusting for continuous operation After the engine has started and warmed up (approx. 30 seconds), re-adjust the adjustable screw on the carburetor (usually, open further) until the engine runs sound (low with a powerful, deep frequency = optimum performance). Warning: A high sound (high-frequency engine run) means poor engine performance which causes overheating and an excessively large droplet spectrum. Oversized droplets lead to excessive deposits in front of the unit. After the engine has started and warmed up readjust the adjustable screw… 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. b) open fuel adjustable screw approx. ¼ turn c) with your left hand press the primer slowly down several times Page 10 / 32 5.2 If the engine does not start… ►Check the fuel supply, i.e. fuel must be visible in the transparent tube between the red fuel valve and the carburetor. If no fuel is visible, continue pumping not more than 5 times. If still no fuel is becoming visible the red fuel valve may be blocked. Disconnect the valve and blow through (see direction of arrow). ►Test and clean spark plug. The electrodes shall be clean and the distance between the electrodes shall be 1,5 – 2,0 mm. Check if spark is visible. ►Fuel suction piece in fuel tank may be chocked. ►If the carburetor is flooded of fuel (primer was pressed down too often or too intensely) and fuel is dropping off the diaphragm valve) proceed as follows: Fuel visible in the transparent tube Space between electrodes : 1,5 – 2,0 mm Warning fire hazard: Wipe off possibly leaked gasoline before new starting 1. Wipe off possibly leaked gasoline 2. close adjustable screw and continue to pump (= pump dry the carburetor) until first explosions are audible. 3. Re-open the fuel adjustable screw on the carburetor to the starting position. Reason If the adjustable screw is closed, no fresh fuel is injected into the carburetor when pumping. On the other hand, fresh air is supplied which gasifies the excessive fuel. Since the ignition is also actuated with each pumping operation, the unit starts immediately as soon as the carburetor is sufficiently dry and an ignitable mixture has formed. Close adjustable screw on carburetor..... Caution The flooding of carburetor with gasoline and the starting problems mostly is a sign of a dirty spark plug or wrong space distance between the electrodes. . .....and continue to pump 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 11 / 32 6.0 FOGGING Open the fog tap while motor is running. The unit starts fogging immediately. Note: The engine frequency may now vary slightly under load. In this case, readjust the adjustable screw on the carburetor once more (usually, open a little more) 6.1 Interrupting the fogging process With the engine running, close the fog tap; re-open as necessary. Warning: Towards the end of the fogging process, usually there is only little fuel left in the tank. Therefore you should avoid sudden movements and not exceed an angle of 45° upwards or downwards in order to prevent air from being taken in by the fuel suction piece. A single air bubble may cause engine standstill. fogging: open the fog tap 6.2 Flow rate and droplet size are controlled by interchangeable dosing (restriction) nozzles. The flow rate depends on the unit type, the set power and the viscosity of the liquid. This should be checked on a case-to-case basis. Tip: after 200 hours of operation check the flow rate interchangable dosing nozzle Flow rate with water and with automatic cut off device : Nozzle size Flow rate 0,8 mm 0,9 mm 1,0 mm 1,1 mm 1,3 mm 9,0 l/h 11,0 l/h 13,5 l/h 15,6 l/h 21,0 l/h Flow rate with Kerosene and with automatic cut off device : Nozzle size 0,8 mm 0,9 mm 1,0 mm 1,1 mm 1,3 mm Flow rate 10,0 l/h 13,0 l/h 16,5 l/h 20,0 l/h 25,5 l/h Other dosing nozzles upon request. Dosing nozzles with a bigger borehole permit a higher flow rate but lead to a increased droplet spectrum (increased sizes). Oil-based pesticides mixed in diesel oil are discharged with a 10% higher flow rate as indicated above. Machines without automatic cut off device discharge with a 20% higher flow rate. Water based pesticides are applied with Nozzle 0,8. Warning: A higher flow rate with water based pesticides may lead to stains and to overdosing close to the machine. The addition of VK-2 Spezial or in the greenhouse nutriFOG fog enhancer allow a improved fog distribution. For stationary applications in greenhouses only use dosing nozzle No. 8 and use the help of ventilations in order to prevent fall out close to the unit. For pure oil fog nozzles No 8 – 12 are usable. 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 12 / 32 6.3 Stopping the fogging process (always while motor is running) Proceed in the following order: a) Loosen the lid of the chemical tank (release pressure) and wait until the unit stops fogging. b) Close the fog tap c) Stop the engine (by closing the adjustable screw on the carburetor). Caution: When you have finished fogging, always release the solution tank from pressure first and close the fog tap before stopping the engine. a) loosen the lid of chemical tank (release pressure) Warning: Never stop engine before fog tap is closed If motor stops unexpectedly (e.g. lack of fuel) during application close immediately the fogging tap and interrupt the application. Reason (In case the unit is not equipped with an automatic cut off device): If you stop the engine before having closed the fog tap, the fogging solution remaining in the tank continues to flow to the very hot fogging pipe where it may cause fire hazard or form black sooty clouds causing dirt on the spark plug and in the carburetor. Venting the solution tank by releasing the tank lid before stopping the engine offers the additional advantage that the liquid still present in the fog solution conduits fogged off and does not remain in the conduits. b) close the fog tap before stopping the engine Warning: Refill fuel only with the unit cooled down. The heat radiation after stopping the engine will heat up the double cooling jacket of the fogging tube. Do not touch the jacket for approx. 20 minutes. c) close adjustable screw to stop the engine 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 13 / 32 7.0 CLEANING 7.1 The unit must be cleaned after each fogging application. For this purpose, remove the solution tank and rinse it with water. Subsequently, fog approx. 1 l of clear water in order to clean the fog solution conduit. Adding a small quantity of alcohol or just a few drops of dishwashing agent is helpful. 7.2 Final cleaning As described in section 9.1, but with additional cleaning of the carburetor diaphragm, since some fog usually penetrates the carburetor during a fogging application and may cause blocking. The carburetor diaphragm can be cleaned as follows: a) Unscrew the diaphragm valve and blow through from both sides with compressed air. alternatively: b) Unscrew the diaphragm valve and rinse in hot water (approx. 60 °C). alternatively: c) Unscrew the diaphragm valve and rinse with hand-warm water to which cleaning alcohol has been added. Cleaning with water and alcohol is especially recommended after fogging with formalin. alternatively: d) Unscrew the diaphragm valve and put it into a vessel with fuel for 5 minutes. Subsequently dry it with compressed air. alternatively: e) Disassemble the diaphragm valve (pictured above), clean the disassembled parts according to a),b),c) or d) and re-assemble the parts according to carburetor- motorassembly. 8.0 STORAGE If you want to keep residual quantities for a limited time in the solution tank, remove the suction tube from the tank. When the unit is not going to be used for some time, drain the fuel tank and store the unit in a cool and clean condition in the cardboard packaging. If you use the unit weekly, refill the fuel tank completely after the unit has cooled down and store it in a safe place, protected against tilting or falling down. Water condensation is prevented if the tank is either completely full or completely empty! Warning Condensation in the fuel tank causes considerable malfunctions since the fuel suction piece and the red fuel valve will clog. Only store the unit in a dry and cool place, protected from direct sunlight and dust. 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc. Page 14 / 32 9.0 MAINTENANCE a) 9.1 Cleaning the fogging pipe After fogging critical agents, or every 10 hours of operation at the latest, the resonator (exhaust pipe) should be cleaned with the cleaning brush. b) For this purpose, the cleaning brush must be inserted into the combustion chamber over its full length and then pulled again. For the K-10 model, this is facilitated by unscrewing the nozzle cane a little. c) 9.2 Servicing After 50 hours of engine operation, replace the diaphragm on the carburetor. 104259099D ▪ Legend Brands, Inc.
