GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
!
PLUGS/RECEPTACLES
WARNING
!
WARNING
This machine MUST BE GROUNDED while in use to
protect the operator from electric shock.
• Electrocution or fire could result if this machine is
not grounded properly or if the electrical configuration does not comply with local and state electrical
codes.
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, GROUNDING provides the path of least resistance for electric
current and reduces the risk of electric shock. This
machine is equipped with an electric cord that has an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug.
The plug MUST be plugged into a matching electrical
receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with ALL local codes and ordinances.
• MAKE CERTAIN the machine is disconnected
from power source before starting any electrical|
work.
• MAKE SURE the circuit breaker does not exceed
the rating of the plug and receptacle.
If a plug is provided with your machine DO NOT modify
the plug. If it will not fit your electrical receptacle, have
a qualified electrician install the proper connections to
meet all electrical codes local and state. All connections
must also adhere to all of OSHA mandates.
The motor supplied with your machine is a 120 volt,
alternating current, 60 hertz, single phase motor. It is
shipped wired for 120 volt application. Never connect
the green or ground wire to a live terminal.
IMPROPER ELECTRICAL CONNECTION of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric
shock. The conductor with the green insulation (with or
without yellow stripes) is the equipment-grounding conductor. DO NOT connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal if repair or replacement of the
electric cord or plug is necessary.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an
electrical receptacle as shown in Figure 1-1. Figure 1-1
shows a NEMA approved 3-wire, 15 amp electrical plug
and receptacle that have a grounding conductor. If a
properly grounded electrical receptacle is not available,
an adapter as shown in Figure 1-2 can be used to temporarily connect this plug to a 2-contact ungrounded
receptacle. The adapter has a rigid lug extending from it
that MUST be connected to a permanent earth ground,
such as a properly grounded receptacle box. THIS
ADAPTER IS PROHIBITED IN CANADA.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if
you do not completely understand the grounding
instructions, or if you are not sure the tool is properly
grounded.
12
EXTENSION CORDS
Fig. 1-1
!
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, use the
proper gauge of extension cord. When using an
extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current your machine will draw.
The smaller the gauge-number, the larger the diameter
of the extension cord is. If in doubt of the proper size of
an extension cord, use a shorter and thicker cord. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in a loss of power and overheating.
Fig. 1-2
!
CAUTION
USE ONLY a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-prong
grounding plug and a 3-pole receptacle that accepts the
machine’s plug.
If you are using an extension cord outdoors, be sure it
is marked with the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to indicate that it is acceptable for outdoor use.
Make certain the extension cord is properly sized, and
in good electrical condition. Always replace a worn or
damaged extension cord immediately or have it
repaired by a qualified person before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat, and damp or wet areas.

This Air Cleaner is furnished with two filters: an outer
pre-filter which filters particles that are five microns and
larger, and a secondary disposable three-pocket inner
filter that captures 91% of the dust particles that are
one micron and larger (one micron = one millionth of
a meter). The Air Cleaner will filter the air in a room
measuring 20’ x 20’ x 8’ sixteen times an hour. If
desired, multiple units can be used to filter larger areas.
!
WARNING
DO NOT USE THIS UNIT TO FILTER METAL DUST.
Combining wood and metal dust can create an explosion or fire hazard. This Air Cleaner is intended for use
where only dry airborne dust is present. Its use should
be limited to non-explosive, non-metallic atmospheres.
CONNECTING TOOL
TO POWER SOURCE
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your
tools. This circuit should not be less than #14 A.W.G.
wire and should be protected with a 15-amp time lag
fuse. Have a qualified electrician repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately. Before connecting the
motor to the power line, make certain the switch is in
the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current
is of the same characteristics as stamped on the motor
nameplate. All line connections should make good
contact. Running on low voltage will damage the motor.
NEVER SECURE MOUNTING HARDWARE TO
DRYWALL, DROP CEILING TILE/FRAME OR NONSTRUCTURAL MEMBERS.
ON/OFF SWITCH
KEEP A MINIMUM OF SEVEN FEET BETWEEN
BOTTOM OF AIR CLEANER AND THE FLOOR.

The Air Cleaner is supplied with an in-line rocker switch
(A) located on the power cord. To START or STOP the
unit, press downward on the rocker switch.

WARNING
WARNING
MAINTENANCE
CHANGING AND CLEANING FILTERS
!
5. Both the electrostatic filter and the three-pocket
inner filter should be replaced once a year. The
electrostatic filter should be cleaned once a month
or more often depending on use. When there is a
heavy build up of dust on the electrostatic filter,
it should be cleaned. The three-pocket inner filter
cannot be cleaned. If either filter is torn, bent or
damaged in any way, it should be replaced immediately.
WARNING
Turn the power switch “OFF” and unplug the power
cord from its power source prior to any maintenance.
Fig. 1-1
The electrostatic filter can be cleaned in one of
three methods. Method one is using a shop-vac to
remove the dust. Method two is using compressed
air to blow the dust out of the filter. Method three is
to wash with soap and water.
!
WARNING
Compressed air can be dangerous. For operator
safety, DO NOT exceed an air pressure of 30 PSI or
point air nozzle toward anyone or aim nozzle at
your own body. Always wear safety glasses and
dust mask when performing this procedure.
A
1. Disconnect machine from power source.
2. Lift up and pull out on the bottom of the electrostatic filter (A). See figure 1-1.
LUBRICATION
Fig. 1-2
The Air Cleaner has sealed lubricated bearings in the
motor housing that do not require any additional lubrication from the operator.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE MATERIALS
to clean Air Cleaner.
!
WARNING
Repairs to the Air Cleaner should be performed by
trained personnel only. Contact your nearest Steel City
Authorized Service Center for authorized service.
Unauthorized repairs or replacement with non-factory
parts could cause serious injury to the operator and
damage to the Air Cleaner.
B
3. Remove the three-pocket inner filter (B) in the
same manner as the electrostatic filter.
See figure 1-2.
4. Install both filters in the reverse order in which they
were removed. NOTE: Make certain the AIRFLOW
arrow on each fitler is pointing inward toward the
rear of the Air Cleaner.
