Micron Group have announced the launch of Micron AU9000, a new vehicle-mounted sprayer for public health applications. The cold fogger has been specifically developed for the control of adult mosquitoes, flies and similar pests using both conventional and waterbased ULV insecticides.
The AU9000 provides excellent control of spray droplet size and flow rate of insecticide, whilst being easy to operate and maintain. It is intended for use by municipalities, pest control contractors, military authorities and similar organisations requiring reliable, cost-effective pest control.
The sprayer uses a reliable 10 HP Briggs & Stratton four-stroke engine, driving a powerful 180 m3/hour blower. The two sprayheads can be independently oriented both horizontally and vertically to achieve a wide swath width and to provide optimum coverage of the target.
All controls are operated from inside the vehicle cab for maximum operator safety. The sprayer incorporates many unique safety features, including an air pressure sensor to stop the insecticide pump in the event of the engine stopping or a failure of the blower.
Insecticide is delivered to the sprayheads by a positive displacement gear pump with an electronic controller. A ten position switch on the control box in the cab to select the flow rate ensures precise and repeatable calibration.
Commenting of the new launch, Haydn Beddows, Group Sales Director said: “Fully compliant with WHO specifiations yet competitively priced, the AU9000 vehicle-mounted cold fogger will enable us to strengthen our position in the public health sector and access new geographical markets.”
