Actisol Compact Portable Aerosol Unit

Free Shipping on All Orders

The Actisol Compact Portable Aerosol machine combines a small volume of insecticide with a large volume of air which becomes atomized in the special nozzle at the end of the Actisol wand. This allows the Actisol Compact ULV Machine to help you reach target insects that may be much further hidden than other target pests that you could reach with standard equipment.

For Use In

The Actisol Compact Unit because of its advanced technology and design forces insecticide to reach target insects where they live – in DEEP HARBORAGES. The constant high volume air-flow causes the ideally-sized insecticide particles to penetrate deeper into cracks and crevices.

Application

1. Filter Insecticide and Fill Tank. Remove Fill Cap. Filter insecticide by pouring slowly into fill neck and through the in-tank filter to remove any debris that may clog or damage the Actisol Compact Unit. With a 28 oz. tank capacity it is VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO OVERFILL WITH PRODUCT. The tank should only be about 75% full or about 20 oz.

2. Replace Fill Cap. Turning the cap clockwise, hand-tighten until firmly secured.

3. Plug in / Turn on Power. Plug the Actisol Compact Unit into a three-prong grounded, 110/115-volt electrical source. Use a three-prong grounded heavy-duty extension cord when operating this unit (Not Included). Remove Red Tip Protector Cap. Switch the unit to the ON position using the Toggle Switch on top of unit.

4. Adjust Regulator. To adjust the Regulator start by unlocking the safety lock located on the adjustment knob by pulling up on the knob. If a red ring is present, lift up on the red ring to unlock. Turn the knob slowly clockwise until the 0-30 psi Panel Mount Gauge reads 10 – 12 psi.

5. Turn the Unit on to Begin Use. At this point the air flows freely through the twin tubing to the wand and excess air is vented to atmosphere at the tip. Next, the air flows into the regulator which controls the pressure exerted on the liquid inside the tank. The liquid product then travels through the second line of the twin tubing to the wand.

6. Apply Insecticide. Always apply insecticide according to the label instructions. Position the applicator tip on the desired target and depress the trigger to apply insecticide. Releasing the trigger allows the unit’s free airflow to push the already applied insecticide deeper into harborage areas. The compressed air is environmentally safe and much more effective than chemical propellants. The free flowing air stream will also disturb target insects even without the use of liquid. The continuous free flowing air stream allows for deeper penetration of the target areas.

7. AFTER EVERY USE BACKFLUSH the system to remove chemical from the wand and hose. This cannot be emphasized enough. This will help protect the twin polyurethane tubing and the capillary polyurethane tubing inside the wand.

8. Draining the Tank. Drain the Actisol Compact Unit’s tank when changing insecticides or storing for an extended period of time. The unique pour dry design of the tank allows you to remove all materials from the tank by simply tilting the unit over a funnel and returning the product to it’s original container.

Actisol Compact Portable Aerosol Unit

ACTISOL COMPACT PORTABLE AEROSOL UNIT FOR RESIDENTIAL APPLICATION

 

There are many tools you can use when it comes to DIY pest control. It’s good to know that homeowners are not just limited to using big store pesticides that come in ready to use spray cans that often times do not provide the same results that professionals pesticide applicators generate.

 

Thankfully, at Solutions Pest and Lawn you can find the latest and most widely used professional equipment utilized by the best pesticide companies. From residential and commercial misting systems to professional thermal and ULV foggers, you can find all the tools that the pros are using and get the same results for a fraction of the price.

 

One of the tools that professionals often turn to, when dealing with a severe cockroach infestation indoors, is aerosol units.

 

WHAT ARE AEROSOL UNITS?

 

Whereas foggers generate smaller particles that linger in the air and are used to treat large open areas, (where a mosquito infestation might occur), Aerosol Units are capable of mimicking the fog like consistency of foggers (with much bigger particles) indoors to treat areas inside the house in a more precise manner.

 

Aerosol units are ideal to flush out roaches and as bed bug treatment in residential and small spaces, whereas foggers are designed to fill larger areas and provide quick knockdown of pests that include warehouses and attics.

 

Aerosol units are used indoors where they can penetrate cracks and crevices, void areas, tile, baseboards, wall voids, and areas that are inaccessible with liquid or dust application.

 

They are mainly used to flush out pests that are hiding indoors and are more capable of supporting a wide variety of products, than a fogging machine, which needs specific products.

 

Aerosol units also come with a wand like sprayer that is used as direct treatment rather than foggers, which can be sprayed over large areas and don’t provide such a precise application.

 

An excellent aerosol unit to use is Actisol Compact Portable Aerosol Unit, which is made in the USA and has been found in the arsenal of pesticide professionals for many years now.

 

WHY USE ACTISOL COMPACT PORTABLE AEROSOL UNIT

 

Manufactured by Actisol, you get an aerosol unit that combines the easy to use capacity of refillable sprayers, the output capability of misters and foggers, with the atomized particles of prepackaged aerosols, to give you the best of all worlds in a simple to use device.

 

This product uses patented technology to mix low volumes of insecticide with a high volume of air, atomizing the mixture into ideally sized particles that generate deep harborage penetration in voids and cracks, as well as an even distribution of concentrate.

 

Its high volume air-stream nozzle generates a powerful proportion of atomized particles that provides incredible results when applying over large rooms.

 

The technology of this product makes for a more effective application that uses less insecticide than other means of application, helping you save money when buying concentrate and creating the same results than other means of application (pump up sprayers, tank sprayers, backpack sprayers, etc.).

 

Its compressed air atomization delivers up to 3½ more time aerosol action for less than half the cost of other application methods.

 

It was developed by professionals for professionals to provide the control, performance, and workmanship that pesticide applicators need on a daily basis and that now first-time DYErs can experience.

 

The stainless steel designed wand is lightweight and easy to use and performs incredibly well in hard to reach places, it comes with a durable void injection tip that will reach deep into all the small cracks and voids found in walls, where insects may harbor.

 

It comes with a filter in the tank that automatically removes debris from insecticides and it also comes with a pressure relief valve built into the fill cap.

 

It only weighs about 17.5 pounds, which makes it easy to carry around residential and commercial jobs.

 

WHERE TO USE

 

This product is good to be used indoors and outdoors in commercial, residential, and institutional buildings. Places indoor where the product can be applied include hidden spaces, voids cracks, and crevices in walls, under furniture, under appliances, and other hard to reach places where insects may harbor.

 

HOW TO USE

 

Before using this aerosol unit, take care to read the whole instructional booklet, which explains how to use, how to replace parts, and answers common field questions and situations that occur when using this product.

 

Also remember to read all labeled instructions, precautions, and warnings found on the concentrate or pesticide product that you plan on using with this aerosol unit, and make sure to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (click here to buy protective equipment) when applying.

 

To fill this aerosol unit with pesticide you will want to first remove the fill cap. Pour the pesticide slowly into fill neck and through the in-tank filter, which will remove any debris.

 

IMPORTANT: DO NOT FILL THE TANK ALL THE WAY. TANK SHOULD BE FILLED ONLY ABOUT 75% FULL OR FILLED WITH 20 OUNCES OF FINISHED PRODUCT.

 

Put the fill cap back on once the pesticide has been poured, by turning the cap clockwise until it is firmly secured.

 

Next, you’ll want to plug the unit to a three-pronged grounded 110/115-volt electrical outlet. Use an extension cord to move more freely around the property and between rooms.

 

Then you’ll want to turn the unit on, by turning the toggle switch to the ON position.

 

To adjust the Regulator start by unlocking the safety lock located on the adjustment knob. If you see a red ring present, lift up on the red ring to unlock. Turn the knob of the regulator slowly clockwise until the 0 to 30 psi panel Mount Gauge reads 10 to 12 psi.

 

The size of the aerosol particles is affected by the pressure placed on the liquid tank. The higher the pressure the larger the particles will be. Depending on the insecticide or desired amount of particle size, the pressure can be maintained by pushing down on the regular top.

 

Before beginning application, it’s important to remove air bubbles that may delay the shutoff of the applicator tip. To do this, turn off the unit, point the applicator tip into the insecticide container used in unison with the aerosol unit, and depress the trigger and wait until a pin stream flows from the tip for approximately 10 seconds. This will purge the system of air bubbles.

 

When the air is flowing freely you are ready to apply the insecticide with the aerosol unit. Simply point to the area where you want to apply and depress the trigger an apply insecticide. Releasing the trigger allows the unit’s free airflow to push the already applied insecticide deeper into harborage areas.

 

CONCLUSION

 

This incredible aerosol unit combines the simplicity of refillable hand sprayers, the treatment capability of foggers, and the atomized output of aerosol cans, into one perfect easy-to-use package.

 

Its made from stainless steel and its patented technology allows to be more effective by using less pesticide which saves you money when buying concentrate, and its mix tank comes with a built-in filter, that prevents debris from entering the tank.

 

If you’re thinking of buying a powerful aerosol unit that is big and reliable enough to handle most commercial buildings, but small enough to handle small residential jobs, you won’t go wrong with this product.

Can the Actisol machine be used with Demon Max?
Arab Pest Control on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You would not want to use Viper in an actisol machine since it causes skin, eye, and throat irritation if exposed to skin. We always recommend using a permethrin or pyrethrin product as they are less irritating. You can use Bifenthrin if you are looking for a longer residual product.
