Your Smokemaster Electronic Air Cleaner is an advanced sel{-contained electronic air cleaner. The Model C-I2 is
an e{ficient indoor pollution lighter while reducing costly energy consumption.
CLEANAIR
A clean lresh atmosphere is a plus to any business. With yqur new Smokemaster Electronic Air Cleaner, your
customers and employees can now breathe air that is relatively lree ol smoke, dust or pollen. This is especially important with regard to today's concetn with the eflects of smokers upon non-smokers and also lor a more comlortable environment lor allergy sufferers.
LOWERENERGYCONSUMPTION
A common solution to the problem ol dense concentrations ol smoke is to exhaust. Excessive exhausting is wastelul
and very expensive. One is exhausting expensively heated or cooled air and needing to heat and cool the outdoor
ait
coming in. A Smokemaster C-12 drastically reduces the need lor outside air. This ..un. you can save as much as 40
percent on heating and cooling bills!
REDECORATING
Smoke particles also have a tendency to settle out as a dulling lilm on mirrors, windows, trophies, bottles
and
glassware. In lact, most ol the particles which produce soiling attd "taittitrg are
lust too small io be removed by
average dusting. Electronic air cleaning gets rid ol these particles belore they have a chance to start the soiling process. Less soiling means longer periods between redecorating. If the appearance ol your business is important to you,
electronic air cleaning is certainly a plus.
EXTRACOMFORTAND SAVINGS
The ellective air pattern of the Model C{2 creates a more comlortable almosphere by constant slight air
movement. This slight movement, while more comfortable, also helps to eliminate existing drafts: Another side Lenelit
oI the air recirculation pattern is that it distributes the heated or cooled air more evenly. TLi..rr"r, distribution helps
to
reduce the amount of heated or cooled air needed lor the same degree ol warmih oi cool.
LOW OPERATINGCOST
In addition to reduced heating-cooling bills and redecorating bills, the relatively low cost oI maintaining
an electronic air cleaner is another linancial boost to your business. This air cleaner has no throwaway lilter or oiher parts
that must be periodically replaced. The durable electronic cells and prefilter screens are washei and used oiei and
over again. No replacement parts means reduced maintenance cost.

OF OPERATION
PRINCIPLES
HOW YOURELECTRONIC
AIR CLEANERWORKS
Airborne contaminants are trapped by a process
"Electrostatic Precipitation." The diagram below
called
simplilies the construction ol the Smokemaster Electronic
Air Cleaner. Particles are lirst given a strong electrical
charge in the charging section ol each cell. These
charged particles are then attracted to and held by the
collection seclion ol each cell and held there until
cleansed at regular intervals. The Smokemaster C-12 has
its own lan which circulates the air through the unit.
3
Plug
Plugs into any regular l2O volt
grounded outlet.
OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
FAN SWITCH
Your electronic air cleaner has an OII-low-Med-Hi
switch. The electronic air cleaner and built-in Ian are
designed to run simultaneously. Turn OII the air cleaner
belore opening the access door to remove the electronic
cells lor cleaning.
SYSTEMLIGHT
Your electronic air cleaner is equipped to tell you
simply and quickly that it is working properly. The amber
system light tells at a glance the status ol the power supply. The system light should be on when the unit is on.
TESTBUTTON
Pushing the red test button located on the cell door (on
the side ol the unit), tells you whether the collector is
working. A snapping sound indicates that the collector is
working properly.
MAINTENANCE
WASHINGTHE ELECTRONIC
CELLS
AND PREFILTER
SCREENS
To maintain peak efliciency, the electronic cells and
prelilter screens in your electronic air cleaner must be
washed regularly. The washing is necessary to remove
dirt particles collected Irom the air. Check with your
Smokemaster representative to determine how olten your
cells need to be washed lor your particulat application.
Intake grille may be removed lrom machine {or periodic
washing.
WARNING: Electronic cell is a delicate instrument'and should be handled accordingly. Warranty covers manulacturer's delects only.
Smokemaster Inc. assumes no responsibility lor
misused or damaged cells due to improper handling or maintenance.
CAUTION:
Use care when handling the electronic cells. The
metal edges can be sharp. Also be carelul not to
damage cells by dropping, bumping against lurniture, etc. Do not splash detergent solution in
eyes, and avoid prolonged contact with skin.
Keep detergent out ol children's reach.
OPTION 1 - Manual Washing/Smokemaster
Liquid Cell Cteaner
1. Pour CLEANERinto a containernearly the size of the
cell. Cleanerand containersare available from your
SMOKEMASTERdealer.
2. Immerse cell in CLEANERand remove immediately.
Set cell asidefor 5-7minutes.
Note: If detergent is allowed to dry on cell, repeat
aboveprocedure.
3 . Thoroughlypressure rinse cell with very hot water.
Rinsingis most critical. If cell is not completelyrinsed,
or if water is not very hot, cell will not be clean and
proceduremust be repeated,
4 . Allow cell to dry.
5 . Replacecell in air cleaner.
6 . Replace cleaning solution when cells are no longer
being effectivelycleaned.
CELL CLEANERIS REUSABLE.SAVE FOR REPEATED
USE.
OPTION 2 - Manual Washing/Commercial
Detergent
The electronic cell may be washed manually by soak.
ing it in a solution o{ commercial grade detergent.
l. Provide a suitable container, Iarge enough to hold
the cells. A large plastic dishpan or laundry tub
works well.
2. Select a commercial grade detergent that dissolves
readily in hot water. Depending on local water conditions, some brands may lorm a precipitate or
scum. II a noticeable scum lloats to the sur{ace, try
another brand. Special electronic cell detergent is
available lrom your Srnokemaster representative.
3. Belore placing cells in wash container, pour in
detergent. Use approximalely 3/ecup per cell i{
container is about the size ol cells. Use proportionately more if container is larger. Add enough
very hot water to cover the cells.
4. Alter the detergent has completely dissolved,
place the electronic cells in the container.
5. Soak the cells lor approximately 30 minutes, slosh
several times and remove.
6. Rinse the cells well with very hot water. It is important that all ol the detergent is rinsed olf.
7. Inspect collector plates lor cleanliness. Repeat
wash procedure il necessary. Check the electronic
cells for broken wires and bent collector plates. The
cells may be installed in the air cleaner and
energized. The indicator light may remain oll dur_
ing the normal two hour drying time. However, il
annoying arcing occurs during this period, the cell
may be removed to dry.
OPTION 3 - Automatic Dishwasher
Electronic cells and prelilters can be washed in ar
automatic dishwasher. Make sure that the airllow artows
on electronic cells point up. Also be carelul not to
damage cells by bending plates or breaking ionizer wires
on dishwasher rack. Ttre cells rnay require more {requent

GENERAL
INFORMATION
APPLICATION
The gl2 is mountedin the roomor areawherethe
air is to be cleaned.It is especiallysuited for servicein
buildings or rooms where existing air circulation is
limited, or where installationof a central system air
cleanerwould be impractical.
One very common applicationfor the C12 is the
removal of smoke from the air in bars, lounges,
restaurants,and bowling alleys. It is also used in a
variety of other applications such as welding shops,
kitctrens,and club rooms.
Becauseit providesits own air circulation, the Clz
may be used in almost any application requiring the
removal of airborne particulate contaminationfrom an
enclosedspace.
It cannot, however, be used in any area where
combustible gasesor vapors are likely to be present
in the air.

GENERALINFORMATION
MAKE.UPAIR
Recommendedquantitiesof clean outdoor ventilation air for variousapplicationsare described in
Table 2 of the ASHME Standard 62-89'Ventilation

LOCATION
The C 12 should be mounted on th€ Giling near the
center of the room. Air is drawn into the bottom of
the C-12 and dischargedin 4 directions. Divide larger
rooms into sections and use an C-12 in the crnter of
eachsection(Fig. 2).
F I G . 2 - M O U N T T H E C . 1 2 O N T H E C E I L I N GA T
THE CENTER OF THE AREA TO BE
CLEANED.
Check the existing air circulation in the room. The
C-12 should be installed so that it aids the sirculation
already $tablished. When airflow patterns are not
immediately apparant, obserw the snpke froma cigarette
in various locations within the room.
1 u r . rr1r j
rf
TheC-]2 should be installed at the c€iling in nearly
all applications. This is especially important when the
air cleansr is used for smoke crntrol. Visible smoke
contains very small particles-so srnall, in fact, tbat
they are not noticaably affected by gravity. Smoke
lsrrelly risesto the ceiling and hangsthere.
r o P o Fc . r 2
,
If the C-12 must b€ installed some distanor away
from ths ctiling, make sura it is at least 14 inches
[355 mm] away from the ciling. This measureis necessary to reduce staining of th€ $iling of lingring srnoky
air. When the air cl€aner is right against the ceiling, the
air at the ceiling is moving too fast to deposit dirt
particlss. Ovtr 14 inchc [355 mm] from the cuiling,
ths effsct is not a probhm. But in thc spaoebotsrern,
rlow moving, dirty air is drawn into thc aroa of ths
dircharg outbts and can stain a light colorod c.iling.

IONIZING
The fine tungsten ionizing wires in the charging
section of the electronic cell may break or become
damaged. Inspea the cell from the upstream side after
washing to make sure that none of the wires are broken
or out of position. During operation, a broken or deformed wire generally causesa short to ground, possibly
with visible arcing or sparking. This condition, or any
other short in the ionizing section of the cell, will
causethe indicator light to go out.

FIG. 8.!NSTALLATIONOF NEWIONIZINGWIRES.
ARCING
From time to time you may hear a snapping noise coming lrom the electronic air cleaner. This arcing occurs
when the air cieaner collects an unusually large particle,
when cells are wet, extraordinarily dirty or damaged.
If an unusual amount ol arcing persists, check lirst to
determine if the electronic cells need washing. look also
Ior any sign ol bent collector plates or broken ionizer
wlres.
II arcing siill occurs when cell is clean and dry, consult your serviceman or dealer lor repair.

TROUBLESHOOTING
ELECTRICAL
The troubleshooting procedi.rredescription is divide,l
into 2 sections:
The lollowing instructions are intended {or qualified service personnel only. Dangerous line voltage
circuits are exposedduring this procedure.Disconnect power before servicing unit.
T R O U B L E S H O ONTGI P R O C E D UER
The following troubleshootingproc€dure has been
designedto speedthe serviceman'swork and insure that
any rnalfunction in the'electronicair cleaneris quickly
detectedand properly repaired.
Most of the troubleshooting steps can be performed
by observing the indicator light. This light is powered
by the resonating winding on the high voluge transformer and is ON wheneverthe high voltagetransformer
is working properly.
This procedureis outlined in the llow chart below.A complete descriptionis provided on the lollowing pages'
1. DIAGNOSTIC CHECKS-The numbered stePs
correspondto the numberedstepson the uoubleshooting
flow chart. Follow this sequenceof checksto locatethe
causeof a failure within the air cleaner.
2. COMPONENT CHECKS-Explains how to Iocate
a faulty component within an assembly,or how to
provea comPonentgood or bad.
TOOLSAND EOUIPMENT
Troubleshooting the Cl2 can be accomplishedwith
only a few tools.
o Screwdrivers-long shank, plasticor rubber handles;
2 required for somearc checks.
o Needlenosepliers-for stringing ionizing wires.
o Test Meter-Honeywell W859 Electronic Air
CleanerTest Meter,or
o Simpson260 with 25 kV dc Probe.
o Solderingiron for replacingcomponents.
o Neon test lamp for line voltage.
. A sparesilicon diode.
