Suitable for use with Acatak Duostar (Elanco), TickPro Pour-On (Specialist Sales), Oztik Pour-On (Jurox) & TickPro Duo (Specialist Sales)

The Acatak 30mL Applicator has been developed to meet the requirements of strength and accuracy in harsh operating environments withstanding the often chemically aggressive nature of the products being administered.

The need for operator comfort is paramount while continuously treating animals.  Products such as Acatak Duostar must be evenly applied without undue operator effort that causes fatigue.

The Acatak 30mL Applicator is suitable for a wide range of sheep and cattle pour-on products, including cattle tickicides (Acatak, TickPro, Acatak Duostar, TickPro Duo, Wintix, Oztik etc).

The delivery system is supplied with a fan spray nozzle for convenient application with less splatter and waste.

Why choose the Acatak 30mL Applicator;

  • Simple, precise dose selection with easy-grip volume control.
  • Designed for operator comfort with a textured non-slip finish.
  • Fan spray nozzle.
  • 9mm Spigot.
  • Ergonomic handle design.
  • A large spring coil gives less force variation through the stroke.
  • Robust, easily dismantled for cleaning and re-lubrication (see cleaning instructions).
  • Suitable for a wide range of sheep and cattle pour-on products.
  • Variable Dose Selector. Variable dose control options, ranging from 5mL to 30mL.

Variable dose selection can be fine-tuned against the dose indication markings on the barrel. The dose adjuster is simple to use and allows for infinite dose adjustment.

What’s Included with the Acatak 30mL Applicator kit;

  • 1 x Acatak 30mL Applicator
  • 2 x Hose armour springs.
  • 1 x 1.2m (9mm) draw-off tube.

Manufacturer: Simcro

Application, Cleaning and Lubricating Instructional Video

  • Pressure applied to handles and the distance from the animal will control the width and pattern of application.
  • For best results, tickicides such as Acatak Duostar should be applied in two 7cm wide bands, either side of the spine from the shoulder to tail. This maximises absorption and ensures effective concentrations of Acatak Duostar are reached.
  • The weight of cattle should be determined by either scales or a weigh band.
  • Dose individuals according to the heaviest animal in the mob.
  • Do not underdose.

Directions Of Use

To Connect to A Backpack:

  1. Slide the two hose armour springs over each end of the delivery tube.
  2. Push one end of the delivery tube fully onto inlet barbs on the applicator.  Slide armour spring back over the end of the delivery tube to reduce the possibility of the tube kinking.
  3. Place the pack upright and remove the transit cap.  Fit the spigot cap to the pack.
  4. Push the other end of the delivery tube onto the spigot cap.  Slide armour spring over the end of the delivery tube.
  5. Place the backpack on your back and adjust straps until comfortable.

To Set The Dose:

  1. Unlock the dose dial by pulling it away from the main body of the applicator.
  2. Rotate the dose dial left or right to adjust the position of the plunger.  Align the front edge of the plunger with the required dose setting on the barrel.
  3. Pus the dose dial towards the main body of the applicator to lock in the selected dose.

To Prime:

  1. Operate the applicator by squeezing the handle until the product appears in the applicator barrel.
  2. With the applicator in an upward position, squeeze the handle to expel all the air from the barrel.  Care should be taken to avoid spillage of the formulation during this procedure.
  3. Warning – Care must be taken to ensure the liquid does not come into contact with any part of the operator’s body.  Chemicals may cause injury to the operator.

Maintenance:

  1. Carefully remove the delivery tube from the upright backpack and pump warm soapy water through the applicator to flush out any excess product.  Then flush with clean water.
  2. Unscrew the barrel from the handle of the applicator.
  3. Lubricate the plunger O-ring and felt washer with either olive oil, paraffin oil or Omega 3 fish oil, by placing the front of the plunger into a tray of vegetable oil to cover the O-ring and felt washer.  Leave to soak for a 1-minute minimum.
  4. Re-install the barrel after lubrication.
  5. Warning – Do not over tighten the barrel.  Left-hand tightening is sufficient.
  6. The only parts that can be removed are;
    1. Nozzle
    2. Front valve cage
    3. Valve spring
    4. Valve

When reassembling, place the short-fin end of the valve into the barrel, then place the narrow end of the conical spring over the long-fin end of the valve.  Replace the front valve cage by aligning the four keys into the four slots in the front of the barrel.  Finally, replace the nozzle by threading clockwise onto the barrel.

Note – Repeating this maintenance process after every use will extend the applicators life.

Questions and answers from customers

    I have been advised to get one applicator for Acatak Pour-On and another for Cydectin Pour-On. Is this advisable or necessary or can this applicator do both chemicals with proper cleaning between the two types?

    The Acatak 30mL Applicator is suitable for Fluazuron (Acatak) and Mectin (Cydectin) pour-on's. Fluazuron products do require specific applicators as the ingredients are considered quite harsh and will destroy standard pour-on applicators very quickly.  To ensure the gun's longevity, the applicator should be completely cleaned and maintained. The limiting factor will be the applicator's capacity, as Cydectin requires a rate of 10mL per 100kg, meaning animals heavier than 300kg must be backlined twice.
