range (5-30 microns), giving superior control over previous models that only delivered
50-60 percent. This is accomplished by forcing the pesticide through a porous sleeve
that rotates at 30,000 RPM. The AGULVE is equipped with a remote control assembly,
wiring harness for vehicle power supply, a five-gallon insecticide holding tank, a one-
gallon flushing agent tank, and a protective frame for field use. This equipment is
principally designed for outdoor treatment of adult mosquitoes and sandflies. Certain
environmental conditions must exist prior to the use of this equipment -- wind speed
must be less than 10 mph; air temperature must be between 40-85F; and air
temperature must be higher than ground temperature. This equipment can only be
calibrated with the actual insecticide; flow rate is dependent on the pesticide
c. ULD Hand-Held Aerosol Fog Generator. The hand-held unit most
frequently used is the Micro-Gen Model HCSI-2AA, NSN 3740-00-434-6555 (see figure
3-11). The portability of this unit allows the applicator the flexibility to apply the
pesticide when needed. This unit can be used in and around buildings and tents and is
used to control flying insects, to flush cockroaches, and to control stored products pests.
The unit weighs approximately 20 lbs., is powered by a 2 HP 2 cycle engine, and has a
chemical bottle capacity of 1 quart. This unit is being phased out of the system. It will
be used until no longer functional.
