Drain valve closed
- Because of the wide variation in air supply systems, you will have to supply
your own coupling to connect the air line to a source of CLEAN, DRY
compressed air. The unit is provided with 10 ft. of ¼ in. polyethylene tubing with a
compression style connector already installed.
- If you are using shop air (air compressor feeding a storage tank), you
must use a filter to insure that the air stream is free of dust,
dirt and oily aerosols. Attach the air tube to your air supply
through a filtered regulator fitted with a needle valve to control
the volume of sparging air. Position a "master shut-off" valve between the pressure
regulator and the needle valve. This valve will
be very useful when purging the return lines when changing the
solution filter as well as for controlling the air supply during
- If you are using a regenerative blower as a dedicated source of
compressed air for your plater, the air valve should be preceded by
a "by-pass" valve. With this setup you will increase
bath agitation by slowly closing the by-pass valve until the desired degree of bath turbulence is
achieved. This will maximize the amount of air flowing through the compressor, letting
it run cooler and more efficiently.
- Before proceeding make sure that the drain valve is closed and the PVC cap
is screwed into place at the end of the drain hose. Although no
fluid can leak from the system unless the pump valve (see fig.2
& fig.6) is in the drain position, it is better to be safe than
