INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 2 32401105(1)2004-04 A INTRODUCTION The operational safety of the machine in your possession is entrusted to those who work with it every day. This manual has been compiled in order to inform machine users about the precautions and regulations to ensure their safety and allow the vacuum cleaner to remain in good working condition. Personnel authorised to work with the machine must understand the manual before the machine is started. Keep the manual near the machine, in a protected and dry place away from direct sunlight and ready to hand for future reference when required. This manual reflects the state-of-the-art technology at the time of sale and cannot be considered inadequate if modifications are subsequently made. The manufacturer reserves the right to update the production range and relevant manuals without being obliged to update previous machines and manuals. If you have any questions or doubts, contact your nearest After-Sales Service Centre or Nilfisk-Advance. Description This machine has been designed to collect shavings, scraps, dust and various waste materials. It is mounted on tough rubber wheels, two of which swivel in order to make the machine easy to handle. It also has brakes to safely stop the machine in place of use. The vacuum has been designed and built to operate in industrial environment where it can work round the clock or intermittently, for normal cleaning purposes. The vacuumed material is subjected to a centrifugal action inside the container where the coarser items fall owing to their weight. The air passes through a filtering surface where solids in suspension are retained. The pressure gauge installed on the machine warns the operator of the filter conditions: an increase in pressure corresponds to a reduction in the filtering power of the filter. Nilfisk-Advance can supply machines able to work with fluids and corrosive substances, or in environments with a high risk of explosion. Machines with absolute filters are also available. The high quality of the vacuum cleaner is guaranteed by the strictest tests. Materials and components which are subjected to a series of strict inspections during the various production phases in order to ascertain compliance with the established high quality standards.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 32401105(1)2004-04 A 5 TESTING, DELIVERY, INSTALLATION Testing The machine will have been tested in our plant in order to ensure that it operates correctly. Tests on the suction values are carried out during this phase. This ensures that the vacuum has been optimised according to the job for which it was designed. Delivery and handling The machine is delivered, fixed to a pallet and covered with a cardboard box. When receiving the machine check for concealed damage. If damage is discovered, immediately file a complain with the carrier. Use a fork lift to unload the vacuum cleaner. The machine can be stored at temperatures between 0° and 30°C, and 65% relative humidity. It must be ascertained, that the floor surface is of adequate load-carrying capability to bear the weight of the machine. Before storage the machine must always be cleaned in accordance with the instructions. The machine can be operated in the temperature range -5° to + 30°C and 65% relative humidity. The delivery packaging should be disposed of in accordance with the relevant statutory regulations. Dispose of a machine, which is no longer usable, in accordance with the relevant statutory regulations. Only use approved commercially available, non-combustible and non-toxic solvents for the purpose of cleaning the machine. If the use of compressed air is absolutely unavoidable, wear protective goggles with side protection and limit the pressure to a maximum of 2 bars. Certificate of guarantee The certificate of guarantee is packed with the vacuum. Installing the vacuum The floor on which the vacuum must operate should be level, flat and solid. If the vacuum is to work in a fixed position, allow ample space all round in order to ensure freedom of movement and allow the maintenance staff to operate with ease. Connecting to the mains socket Ensure that the electrical supply matches the machine rating plate. If power cable “2” must be replaced, open the electrical cabinet door “5”. Take care to prevent damage to earth cable “4”, which connects door “5”. Disconnect the three wires plus the yellow-green earth wire from terminals “3”. Remove the cable and replace this with one possessing the same characteristics, fixing this to the same terminals “3”. ATTENTION! Lift the machine with a fork lift of adequate carrying capacity. In view of the particular height of the vacuum, check that the load is firmly positioned on the forks. When transporting the vacuum, keep the load as low as possible to ensure greater visibility and stability, and to work safely. The forks must be widened and positioned in the centre of the machine. ATTENTION! The user shall be responsible for ensuring that installation complies with the local statutory regulations. A qualified technician, who has read and understood the instructions herein, must install the equipment. ATTENTION! Check that the voltage and frequency values of the mains socket correspond to the values indicated on the data plate.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 6 32401105(1)2004-04 A Checking for proper connection Check that all 3 phases are present. If the indicator light “6” (yellow) is on, the phases are inverted, and need to be changed according to the procedure stated below. Proceed in the following way to check the turning direction: 1. If the yellow light “6” is on, when pressing the ON button “4” the machine does not start. 2. Disconnect the machine from the mains socket and invert two of the three live wires in the plug or in the electrical box on the main switch (fig. 3). 3. Close the plug or the electrical box, connect it to the mains socket and start the machine by pressing the ON button “4” (fig. 4). CONTROLS 1. Vacuum gauge to display filter clogging. Indicates the degree of filter clogging in proportion to the vacuum expressed in millimetres of water column. Check when there are no accessories connected to the machine. When the indicator points to the red area, the filter needs to be cleaned; if this is not sufficient, it must be replaced. 2. Main switch. Red on a yellow background 0 = Vacuum disconnected from the mains socket 1 = Vacuum electrically powered 3. POWER ON indicator (white light) 4. ON Button (green) 5. OFF Button (red) 6. Phase Indicator (yellow light). STARTING AND STOPPING Starting Check that the machine has been effectively connected to the mains socket. In particular, check that the main voltage and frequency values correspond to those indicated on the data plate (see fig. 1). Fit the accessories “1” to the suction inlet. Place the vacuum near the place of use, then lock the front wheels by pressing levers downwards. Set main switch “3” from position “0” (OFF) to position 1 (ON). The vacuum is now ready for use. Press the ON button “4” (green) to start the unit. Stopping Press the OFF button “5” (red) to stop the vacuum. Turn main switch “3” from position “1” (ON) to position 0 (OFF). This stops the vacuum for being electrically powered. USING THE VACUUM Correct use of the vacuum Before using the machine, connect the suction pipe to the inlet. Keep long suction pipes as straight as possible. Do not allow them to bend or twist as this will cause excessive wear and clogging. When the vacuum is powered, suction is created at the pipe inlet and this sucks in the waste material. This waste material passes through the pipe and accessories through the inlet “4” until it reaches container “6”, where a deflector “5” in the filtering chamber subjects it to a centrifugal action causing the heavier solids to deposit on the bottom of container “6”. The primary filter will retain the lighter particles in the airflow “3” as the air passes through it. Lastly, the filtered air enters impeller “1” of the suction unit, it is then exhausted through exhaust panel “2”. Cleaning the primary filter Vacuum gauge “1” is installed on the front part of the vacuum (see fig. 4) and indicates the vacuum created within the vacuum itself. This vacuum is expressed in millimetres of water column. If the pointer is in the right (green area), the filter will be in a good condition. If the pointer swings to the left (red area), this means that the filter is clogged and has a reduced filtering capacity. In this case, it will be necessary to clean the primary filter. Switch off the vacuum by pressing the OFF button “5” (red) (fig. 4). Operate the filter shaker handle “2” (fig. 7) several times in order to detach the dust from the filter. Wait a few minutes for the dust to deposit at the bottom of the container, then empty this. Clean the pipe, if this is the case. ATTENTION! Unauthorized personnel are forbidden to use the vacuum. The operator must check that all the guards are mounted and that the safety devices are installed and efficient. NOTE When the vacuum is not in use, leave main switch “3” in position 0 (OFF) and the mains isolator disconnected. ATTENTION! If the machine is used for fluids or wet materials and fluid emerges from it, the machine must be immediately switched-off, cleaned and dried and all filters replaced. NOTE If the vacuum gauge “1” (fig. 7) is still in the red area, the suction pipe, may be clogged, and not the filter.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 32401105(1)2004-04 A 7 Emptying the container Check the amount of waste in the container according to the job in hand and to prevent it from becoming excessively full. Before emptying container “1”, first switch off the vacuum by pressing the OFF button (red) then turn the main switch to position 0 (OFF). It is also advisable to clean the primary filter by using the shaker handle. Wait a few minutes for the dust to detach from the filter and deposit in container “1”. Lift lever “4” under the inlet. Container “1” will lower until it rests with its wheels on the floor. Grip handle “2” and remove the container, then empty out its contents. To make container “1” easier to empty, Nilfisk-Advance supplies a lifting strap to be used when lifting the container by use of a forklift or a crane. Insert the strap in the mounting brackets on the container. To remount the container, fit it under filter unit “5”. Now push lever “4” downwards, allowing container “1” to lift until it seals against filter chamber “5”. To facilitate the container emptying and cleaning operations, it is advisable to use plastic bags “1” as indicated in figure 9. OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT The options listed below can be used with the vacuum. 32400150 Dust bag system kit 32400151 Safe bag system kit 32400152 Plastic bag system kit 32400153 Stainless steel container 32400154 Liquid kit complete with stainless steel container 32400155 Pulse jet cleaning kit 32400156 “M” class filter kit 32400157 “H” class filter kit 32400158 Asbestos kit 32400159 ABS container kit For information on spare parts please refer to the Spares Catalogue. MACHINE EQUIPPED WITH ELECTRIC FILTER SHAKER One variant of each type of four machines is equipped with an electric filter shaker. This consists of an electrical reduction unit and a lever system that turns the filter in a horizontal reciprocating way. Rotary movements are about 10 degrees to the right and 10 degrees to the left with a frequency of about 180 cycles per minute. The dust detaches from the filter thanks to the high number of cycles. The filter is held by a mechanical cage able to withstand the pressure exercised by the filter itself, carry the latter when the filter shaker operates and keep it taut during the suction phase. Filter cleaning can be programmed at set intervals regardless of the degree of clogging. It can also be established by a differential vacuum gauge, which only activates filter cleaning when there is certain degree of clogging. Only entrust inspections and filter replacement operations to competent personnel. If work has been carried out on the electrical filter shaker system, (i.e. replacement of filter or the like), follow the instructions below. ATTENTION! The container must not be emptied if it contains dust classified as a health threat, (Dust classifications M and H). A plastic bag must be used for the disposal of dangerous dust or, alternatively, the ABS container with a lid. The corresponding article numbers for these items are given in Chapter 9. ATTENTION! Check that when back in position, container “1” is in a perfectly sealed condition. ATTENTION! These bags cannot be used when the waste contains liquids or sharp items.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 8 32401105(1)2004-04 A Once work on the vacuum has terminated and before closing cover “4”, check that the filter bags “8” and bearing cage “9” are vertical. When the Lever “7” fixed to the operating shaft “2” is in the neutral central position halfway along its travel, connect rod “5” to the gearbox “6”. Only in this way will cage “9” cover an equal travel to the right and left when the gearbox unit is operated. Shake filter “8” and cage “9” by hand in order to eliminate any small positioning defects, then tighten the clamp in filter “8” to fix it in position. The filter could be torn and the motor of the gearbox burnt out if this is not done. Fix the clamp “3” back in place and refit the suction pipe. The same lever positioning precautions must also be taken when only the cover is moved and not the filter ring. EXPLOSION-PROOF VERSION ATEX If the vacuum cleaner is used in locations where combustible and explosive substances are present Nilfisk-Advance can equip the machine for use in the categories: – ATEX Zone 21 (Not previously available); – ATEX Zone 22, Class “L”. Please contact Nilfisk-Advance if you wish to make use of these options and require further information. VACUUM CLEANER USED FOR ABSESTOS On vacuum cleaners with an accessory for the removal of asbestos dust the ABS container insert or the protective bag system must always be used. An exhaust connection must be attached to the side outlet, through which air can be exhausted from the working area. The exhaust hose can be directed to the open air or to a ventilation system installed in the working area. The exhaust connection for the air outlet must be fitted with a 70 mm PUR H hose with a length of < 5 m. This hose is contained in the Asbestos Kit, which can be supplied for the machine. As already mentioned, the hose can either be exhausted directly to the open air or to a ventilation system installed in the working area. When transporting the machine you must make sure that it has been cleaned in accordance with the regulations stipulated in TRGS 519. The machine can also be transported in a sealed container from which no contaminated dust can escape. Filter replacement Make sure that the filter is covered with a suitable plastic bag before it is removed. Remove the suction pipe “1” from the lower connection. If the filter assembly is very heavy, remove the upper cover and lift the assembly from the machine using the two handles provided. Unscrew the clamp, which attaches the filter to the basket, and lift the basket from the filter. Rotate the filter and reveal the plastic strip “2”. Place the filter in a plastic bag, cut the plastic strip and free the basket from the filter. Seal the plastic bag containing the filter. ATTENTION! Before commissioning the machine you should always check that the details given on the data plate on the machine meet the safety regulations applicable to the conditions under which the vacuum cleaner is to be used. Make sure that the vacuum cleaner is suitable for operation in the classification applicable to the surroundings. If you have any questions or doubts, contact your authorised Nilfisk-Advance customer service centre before operating the machine. NOTE If the machine is to be used for the suction removal of asbestos dust, either the ABS container or the protective bag system must be used.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 32401105(1)2004-04 A 9 If the filter is soiled by poisonous or otherwise dangerous dust do not throw it away. Hand it to an authority, which is authorised for the disposal of this type of waste. Take particular care when replacing the main filter or the complete filter and wear a P3-type mask. Obtain a filter with the same characteristics as the old filter and proceed as follows: (Fig. 17). Fit the filter lock and the sealing ring of the old filter to the new filter. Insert the cage “4” and secure the filter using the plastic strip “2” on the bottom of the filter. Fit the filter rod in the filter shaking system and tighten the screw. Fit the upper cover on the filter unit. Re-insert the filter unit into the machine. Re-attach the suction pipe “1” in its original position. Fix the clamp, which holds the filter unit on the machine. ABSOLUTE FILTER HEPA filter “1” must be installed when the vacuum must operate in clean-room environments, when a high degree of purity is required or when it must treat materials that are dangerous for the operator. This filter is installed in the filter compartment on the top of machine, between the primary filter and the blower unit. This allows the machines to achieve 99.995% MPP efficiency at a particle size of 0.3 Micron, in retaining the particles that escape the primary filter. This value was gauged by means of the D.O.P. method. CATEGORIES OF USE Use in compliance with the standards. Check which category your machine is suited for (see identification plate). The machine must not be used for several categories at the same time, unless suitable accessories are used, such as liquid kit if the machine is to be used for liquids. Dust Class “L” (Light hazard – defined by EN 60335-2-69). This industrial vacuum is approved according to EN 60335-2-69 for category of use “L” and is fit to suck dry, non flammable and non-toxic dust with MAK>1mg/m3 values; the clean air is conveyed back into the place of work. Dust Class “M” (Medium hazard – defined by EN 60335-2-69). Suitable for removing hazardous, dry, not inflammable dusts whose MAK limiting value is greater than 0.1 mg/m3 . Dust Class “H” (High hazard – defined by EN 60335-2-69). Suitable for removing hazardous, dry, not inflammable dusts with all MAK limiting values as well as dry, not inflammable dusts of carcinogenic substances. The cleaned air is fed back to the workplace atmosphere. Category of use ATEX Industrial vacuum cleaners with the additional ATEX machine type are tested and approved for the removal of settled inflammable dusts. Dusts with an extremely low minimal ignition energy (< 1 mJ) like toners, sulphur, aluminium powder or lead stearate are excluded. In this case, operation requires a special security consideration. This vacuum must only be used to clean surfaces. It must not be used to suction clean moving machines or powders classified as liable to explode according to explosion category G, in class ST3, nor inflammable liquids and inflammable powders mixed with inflammable liquids. ATTENTION! The replacement of the filter is an important procedure. The filter must be replaced by another filter with the same characteristics and the same filter surface and category. If these rules are not followed the vacuum cleaner may not function correctly.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 10 32401105(1)2004-04 A EMPTYING THE CONTAINER (VERSION H-) Before emptying, switch off the motor. Shake the filter a number of times and give the dust time to settle. Release the container using the lever. Switch the motor back on and follow these steps: – remove the container from below the machine; – close the container “1” lid; – remove the sealed container “2”; – insert a new empty container into the dust container and refit it into the vacuum cleaner. Carefully check that the waste container (when mounted) is perfectly tight with the filtering chamber. The elimination of the container containing toxic substances must be done following the existing rules. Using a Dust Safe Bag system, Dust class H. Fitting the Dust safe Bag Place the special dust bag flat in the bin with its opening pointing towards the bin inlet. Now slide the opening in the special dust bag on to the bin inlet as far as it will go – without any turning. Then fold the plastic bag down over the bin rim. Now pull the part of the plastic bag overlapping the bin rim tight against the flange (before re-attaching the top and bottom sections of the vacuum cleaner). Once the dust bag is full Leave the hose connected or close to the lid! After opening the appliance detach the plastic bag lying across the bin rim carefully, close and seal it. Detach the back of the connecting flange by briefly pressing firmly downwards at an angle, while holding the front firmly on the connection piece. The plastic-hose joint is now visible and can be tied off securely with the cable tie simply by pulling it together. Having thus ensured that no dust can escape, now also detach the front part of the flange from the connection piece. Using a Dust Bag system (plastic bag insert) (Fig. 9). Having opened the system, remove the plastic bag’s edge carefully from the container’s rim. Close the bag’s opening and take it out of the container. Put a new bag into the container. Take care that it fits the bottom and the walls. Pull the bag’s edge over the container’s rim and smooth it down. Dust Class “L” Machines of this category of application can be used without a dust bag. In this case please make sure that the removal of the dust takes place in a special area and use a respiratory protection mask.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 32401105(1)2004-04 A 11 TECHNICAL DATA MAINTENANCE Foreword The suction unit needs no particular maintenance or lubrication. Remember, however, that correct use and servicing are essential if the safety and efficiency of the vacuum are to be guaranteed. To ensure regular and constant operation and to prevent the warranty from becoming void, only ever use genuine Nilfisk-Advance A/S spare parts when replacements are needed. Checks and inspections on start-up The customer should proceed with the following inspections to ensure that the vacuum has not been damaged during transportation. Before starting Check that the mains voltage value corresponds to that for which the machine is preset. Check that all warning and danger plates are affixed and legible. Check that all protections are installed and efficient. With the vacuum operating Check that all the air seals are perfectly tight. Check that all fixed protections are efficient. Proceed with suction tests using the same materials used during work. This will ascertain whether all parts of the vacuum operate correctly.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 12 32401105(1)2004-04 A Routine maintenance Strictly comply with the following operations to ensure that the vacuum remains in a constantly reliable condition. Before each work shift Check that all warning and danger plates are fixed and legible. Replace them if they are damaged or incomplete. Check that the waste container is empty. Empty it if this is not the case. Turn the vacuum on and check the filter efficiency, on gauge “1”. Every 200 hours service (monthly) Check the air tightness of the vacuum. There must be no leaks. Check the condition of the suction hose and accessories. They must not be torn, slit or broken since this would lower the suction efficiency. Check that the powering cable has not been damaged, torn or crushed. If this is the case, it should be immediately replaced in strict compliance with the instructions. Check the condition of the primary filter. It must be undamaged, i.e. there must be no tears, holes or other damage. Change the filter if this is the case. Every 2000 hours service (yearly) Check the condition of the suction unit. Have the vacuum completely overhauled by the manufacturer or by an authorized after-sales service centre. How to carry out the required inspections The following descriptions will show the user how to carry out the required inspections. Replacing the primary filter When replacing the primary filter, work outdoors if possible. The old filter must be disposed of in a special plastic bag. Loosen the clamp fixing the filter assembly on the machine. Remove suction pipe “1” from the lower spigot. If the filter assembly is very heavy, remove the top cover of the filter, and lift the filter assembly from the machine by means of the 2 handles. Unscrew the clamp that locks the filter on the bearing cage and remove it from the filter. Overturn the filter, exposing plastic strip“2”. Place the filter in a plastic bag “3”, cut the plastic strips and detach the cage from the filter. Close the plastic bag containing the filter. If this is soiled with toxic or dangerous dust, do not throw it away. Hand it over to the authorities that are authorized to dispose of such waste. Replace the primary filter and the absolute filter with particular care, above all use a P3-type mask. Obtain a filter with a identical characteristics as the previously one and proceed in the following way (fig. 17): – fit the filter catch and retention ring of the old filter on the new one; – insert cage “4” and fix it to the filter by means of plastic strips “2” at the bottom of the filter itself; – mount the filter rod in the filter shaker system and tighten the bolt; – fix the top cover of the filter assembly; – fit the filter assembly back into the machine; – fit the suction pipe “1” back into position; – fix the clamp holding the filter assembly on the machine. ATTENTION! When the vacuum has been used on materials that are a hazard to the operator’s health, maintenance staff must wear suitable personal protection equipment. ATTENTION! Filter replacement is an important operation. The filter must be replaced with one of identical characteristics, exposed filtering area and category. Failure to comply with these regulations could jeopardize the correct operation of the vacuum.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE 32401105(1)2004-04 A 13 Replacing the absolute filter When installed, the absolute filter is replaced in the following way: – loosen the clamp fixing the filter assembly on the machine; – remove suction pipe from the lower spigot; – loosen the clamp fixing the top cover of the absolute filter chamber; – it will now be possible to remove the absolute filter “1” and to replace it with a new one; – remount the top cover and fix the clamp; – fix the suction pipe; – fix the filter assembly back into position and tighten the clamp. The dismounted and replaced absolute filter must be covered with a nylon bag and disposed of in the appropriate way. Replace the primary filter and the absolute filter with particular care, above all use the P3-type mask. Checking the condition of the hoses To ensure the vacuum operates in the best possible way, the entire air suction circuit must be perfectly tight. It is necessary to check the condition of hose “1” that connects the main filter with the absolute filter chamber. Check that it is correctly fixed. Check the hose “2” connecting the absolute filter chamber to the suction motor, and the hose”3” connecting the suction motor to the exhaust. Checking the condition of the suction fan Dust deposits could unbalance the fan, creating abnormal vibrations and quickly wearing the bearings. Ask for technical assistance from Nilfisk-Advance or one of the manufacturer’s authorized after-sales service centre in these cases. Remember to remove the suction unit from the casing, it will be necessary to proceed with the aid of lifting means and safe anchoring. The unit may weigh as much as 50 Kg. Periodically check to make sure that there are no dust deposits on the turbine casing “2” when work is carried out in particularly dusty environments. If there is dust or oil mist in the environment, make sure that the cooling holes of cap “1” do not become clogged. This could prevent the motor from being efficiently cooled and lead to activation of the thermal protector or, worse still, cause the motor to actually break down. Recommended spares The following is a list of spare parts that should be kept ready at hand in order to speed up maintenance work. NOTE The absolute filter is toxic waste and must be treated as such. Hand it over to one of the authorities authorized to dispose of such materials. General recommendation. Please pay special attention to the grounding connections when disassembling and assembling the machine, when replacing filter etc. Spares number Quantity Description 32400345 1 D. 360 Clamp fitting 32400337 1 D. 360 Filter container seal 32400338 1 D. 460 Dust container seal 32400323 1 Shock absorber for shaking system 32400336 1 D. 460 Filter container seal 32400326 1 Standard Polyester filter (Depending on version) 32400327 1 PTFE filter (Depending on version) 32400328 1 Antistatic standard filter (Depending on version) 32400329 1 Antistatic PTFE filter (Depending on version) 32400330 1 NOMEX filter (Depending on version) 32400344 1 D. 460 Clamp fitting
