Abstract:

An advanced prototype mass human delousing spray gun was developed from evaluation of current system, pediculicide flow property testing, and volumetric metering device design and testing. The prototype gun meters 2.7 grams consistently. Exhibits no leakage or jamming and reduces operator fatigue due to trigger actuation by an order of magnitude. The prototype gun can be completely disassembled for maintenance and O-ring seal replacement. Recommendations for the production gun configuration include reduced hopper size for 1.8 gram dosages, reduced weight via alternative material, internal cartridge valves, internal air passages, encapsulated cylinders, ruggedized handle and relocated air supply fitting.
