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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.
