Stationary Test Procedure
This procedure is meant to simulate normal spraying operations so you can check the operation of the chemical injection system. The TASC console will use its’ own internal simulated speed to provide the required input to make the pumps turn. This allows you to walk around the sprayer and ensure all of the pumps are functioning before going out in the field. We often ask this procedure be performed to help troubleshoot error conditions when you call in for help.
- Close the ball valve(s) at the bottom of the chemical tank(s) of the pump(s) to be tested.
- Prepare the injection pumps.

Solenoids will turn on and possibly dribble water from the sprayhead nozzles.
- The pumps that are turned on should be turning. Verify the selected pump(s) are turning and the console is not indicating an Error 3 condition.
