Shut Down
  1. Turn main heater power OFF.
  2. Follow Park; see manual page 27.
  3. Check and fill wet cups.
  4. Follow gun shutdown procedure. See the gun manual.
Flushing
WARNING: Flush equipment only in a well-ventilated area. Do not spray flammable fluids. Do not turn on heaters while flushing with flammable solvents.
  1. Flush out old fluid with new fluid, or flush out old fluid with a compatible moisture-free solvent.
  2. Use lowest possible pressure when flushing.
  3. To flush feed hoses, pumps, and the heater separately from the heated hoses, set PRESSURE RELIEF/SPRAY valves to PRESSURE RELIEF/CIRCULATION. Flush through bleed lines.
  4. To flush the entire system, circulate through gun fluid manifold (with manifold removed from the gun).
  5. Always leave hydraulic oil or a non-water-based, non-water absorbent fluid in the system. Do not use water.
WARNING: Only use flush solvents that are compatible with Fluoroelastomer seals. Non-compatible solvents will damage seals and cause hazardous conditions, such as high-pressure leaks.
