Vacuuming
Dry Materials
1.The filter must be in correct position a_
all times to avoid leaks and possible
damage to vac
2_When using your vac to pick up very
fine dust, it will be necessary for you to
empty the drum and clean the filter at
more frequent
intervals to maintain
peak vac performance
NOTE: A dry filter ts necessary to pick up
dry material. If you use your vac to pick
up dust when the filter is wet, the filter will
clog quickly and be very difficult to clean
3 if your fitter is wet but you need to use
the vac to pick up dry material, you can
quickly dry the filter by running the vac
without
hose attached for about t0
minutes The clean air rushing through
the vac w_ll help dry the filter.
Vacuuming
Liquids
t When picking up small amounts of liq_
uid the fitter may be left in place.
2 When picking up large amounts of tlq-
uld we recommend that the filter be
removed, if the filter is not removed, It
will become saturated and misting may
appear in the exhaust.
3 After using the vac to pick up liquids,
the filter must be dried to avoid possi*
ble mildsw and damage to the filter
4.When the liquid in the drum reaches a
predetermined leve!, the float mecha-
nism wil! rise automatically to cut off
air-flow When this happens, turn off
the vac, unplug the power cord, and
empty the drum. "Youwilt know that the
float has risen because vac airflow
ceases
and
the
motor
noise
will
become
higher
in
pitch,
due
to
increased motor speed
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the
vac do not run motor w_thfloat In raised
position
