Tech Tip - Proportioning Equipment Maintenance

Posted By DEMILEC || 30-Nov-2012

The proportioning equipment that is used to process foam and high performance coat requires constant attention and routine maintenance in order to perform the way it was intended. One of the many components that require daily attention is the electrical cabinet.

The exhaust fan, located under the left side of the electrical motor (E-series machines) is designed to pull air from the bottom of the electrical cabinet through vent holes located under the motor control and temperature control boards. Air that is pulled from the floor of the cabinet across the circuitry of the control boards is not filtered and can have debris that may damage the control boards and electric motor.

Use very dry, compressed air or disposal compressed air can to prevent dust from building up on the control boards, breakers, exhaust fan/shroud, electrical motor.

NOTE: Make sure to disconnect electrical from proportioner before opening electrical cabinet door.

As always read, understand and follow all instruction manuals and warning labels supplied with all equipment. Only trained and qualified personnel should perform repairs on the equipment. To access the latest equipment manuals visit www.graco.com.
