VACUUM PUMP MAINTENANCE
It is very important to regularly service the pump to ensure extended and correct operation. The following activities are
essential for correct maintenance. If the machine is used regularly then it is advisable to have the pump fully inspected at
least once a year by the supplier to ensure extended and problem free operation.
The conditioning program ensures that the pump is thoroughly rinsed. During the program the pump and oil reaches operation temperature so that the oil can better absorb any moisture and contaminants and filter them. The high
temperature enables any moisture in the pump to evaporate minimising the risk for rust spots.
The program lasts 15 minutes and it is advisable to run it at least once a week.
Turn on the machine, press the key [conditioning program], and close the lid.
The program runs automatically. During the program the large display will display moving lines.
The program can be interrupted at any time using the [STOP] key. It is however important for the sake of good
maintenance that the program completes a full 15 minute cycle and therefore advisable only to interrupt the cycle for
It is also advisable to run the program before using the machine for the first time, after the machine has been stationary
for a lengthy period of time, and especially prior to changing oil.
