PREPARING AN AQUAFLAME FOR RETURN TO AQUAFLAME SERVICE CENTRE
To avoid damage during transit, it is very important to pack machines correctly that are being returned to the Aquaflame Service Centre. Please follow the following instructions very carefully.
The cell containing the caustic solution within the main unit must be emptied. This is best done with a siphon purchased from us or from any large chemist.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO SIPHON BY MOUTH.
The solution must be disposed of very carefully with plenty of water down an industrial sink or drain, you are advised to wear protective gloves and wash hands thoroughly if they come in contact with the solution.
Cut off a piece of the black neoprene tubing, bend over and using a cable tie or piece of wire secure the folded piece of tubing. This will create a plug, which can be placed over the gas outlet to prevent any small quantities of fluid left in the machine from leaking out.
It is advised that you send you send your Booster / Atomiser and torch for testing along with your machine. The Booster must be emptied of MEK or any other contents and both openings sealed by placing the neoprene tube that normally connects the Booster with the machine over the openings so that it creates a loop from the gas outlet to the gas inlet. This will prevent any residual fluids from leaking out.
The machine must then be very strongly packaged in a robust box with plenty of packing.
MOST IMPORTANTLY PLACE PLENTY OF PACKING UNDER THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE.
Place on small pallet if available. Mark clearly on the box which way up the box should be to make sure the couriers do not turn the machine upside down – the machine is very bottom heavy.
