READ THIS MANUAL CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL OR OPERATE
THE MODEL V410 UNIT. RETAIN THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
SAFETY RULES
Follow all electrical and safety codes as well as the National Electrical Code (NEC), National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). All electrical
connections and wiring should be performed by qualified personnel only.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards require specific duct design and dust collector
configuration when collecting potentially reactive metal dusts, such as aluminum and magnesium, and other
materials. NFPA also covers other dusts such as grain, plastics, etc. A guideline for determining the
precautions to be taken can be found in NFPA 497. Other NFPA standards may apply to your specific
application. Consult current NFPA standards, available from NFPA, 1 Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA,
02269, 1-800-344-3555, for applicable safeguards which may required for the Installation, Operation, and
Service of this product. Fire suppression equipment provided by others.
Additional references are the Uniform Building Code and Uniform Mechanical Code.
WARNING
APPLICATION OF DUST CONTROL EQUIPMENT:
1. Do not mix materials being collected by a dust collector unless it is determined that mixing of materials
does not cause hazardous conditions to occur or creates a condition of operation for which the equipment
was not intended.
2. Under no condition should burning cigarettes or any burning object be allowed into the hood or ducting of
any dust control system.
3. When dust collectors are used to collect emissions from steel or combined metal sanding, the dust
collector should be located an adequate distance away to minimize the chance of ignition of duct system
residue from hot metal chips and sparks. Should further protection from fire be required, adequate duct
systems from capture hoods and dust collector should be provided so that a fire protection specialist can
install extinguishing equipment. You may also want to contact your insurance underwriter.
4. Explosion relief vents may be required per NFPA codes. Explosion vents are used to minimize the
destructive effect of an explosion and are intended primarily to protect from injury anyone in the
immediate area of the collector. Damage to the collector may, or may not, be repairable. Vents installed
on dust control equipment within a building must be vented to the outside to minimize chances of injury to
persons or a secondary explosion. Again, consult the proper authority to determine proper method of
venting. Explosion relief vents are optional and should be ordered with the dust collector or installed
locally.
6
5. Always disconnect unit from power source before inspecting or servicing.
AIRFLOW SYSTEMS SETS THE STANDARD
The Airflow Systems Model V410 collects dust, welding smoke, and other dry pollutants in industrial
plants, shops, schools and factories. The general theory of operation is that air bearing pollutants passes
o
through the inlet and must make a 180 turn to pass through a spark screen where large particles fall out of
the air stream. The particulate laden air then passes through the (2) main 95% cartridge filters where the +1
and sub-micron particles are captured. The main filters have 150 ft2 collection area each for maximum
intervals between service. The Vibra Pulse is for filter cleaning with dry dust applications. After passing
through the filters, the cleaned air is then discharged thru the top of the unit. Figure 1 shows general
construction details.
The Model V410 is a complete portable collector. The unit comes equipped with four 5" industrial duty
casters (2 swivel, 2 fixed). It comes standard with (2) 3” FPT couplings for attachment of collection hoses.
The Model V410 can be mounted in a stationary location if desired by ordering it with the optional hopper
and stand kit.
The Model V410 is available with an external 99.97% HEPA filter or Adsorption Module (AD) if
required.

INSPECTION AND UNPACKING
Inspect your AFS unit for shipping damage immediately upon receipt. Damaged carton(s), broken
crate(s), etc. are indications that the unit may have been damaged in shipment. It is also possible shipping
damage may be concealed and not noticed until the unit is installed and in operation. If any damage is found,
notify your delivery carrier at once and enter a claim. Claims must be filed within 15 consecutive days of
receipt of shipment. FREIGHT DAMAGE CLAIMS ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE
PURCHASER, NOT AIRFLOW SYSTEMS.
PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
After initial inspection for shipping damage, check the cabinet filter and motor/blower compartments for
any packing materials and remove. Install casters, then stand unit upright and attach pickup hoses to 3" inlets.
Use correct lifting devices to prevent damage or injury. Roll unit to the desired location. When
using an extension cord with a portable air cleaner, refer to the Appendix and Motor
Troubleshooting Guide Table A for the correct wire gauge.
The following section discusses both physical installation and electrical tie in. Fire suppression
equipment provided by others.
COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY
Effective cleaning of the filters in most applications will occur when the pressure at the compressed air
connection of the air cleaner is maintained, while the filter is cleaning, of 80 PSI. Pressure over 100 PSI is
NOT recommended at any time, and generally reduces cleaning performance. A pressure below 70 PSI may
decrease cleaning effectiveness in some applications. A nominal ( OFF or not cleaning ) pressure setting of
80 PSI is usually adequate when using a 3/8” compressed air supply line.
If optional regulator/gauge is installed, set regulator to 80 PSI. When air valve is open, confirm pressure
on gauge does not go below 70 PSI.
Compressed air filter provided by others.
Fire suppression equipment provided by others.
VIBRA PULSE FILTER CLEANING SYSTEM
To set up the Vibra Pulse system, simply slide the 3/8” air hose over the hose barb fitting on the outside of
the cabinet and secure it with the 1” hose clamp. Refer to Figure 3. Use any standard Quick Disconnect 3/8”
fitting (as used on an air tool) to attach to the supply air. The V410 unit comes with 10’ of 3/8” air line. If a
longer run of hose is required, it is recommended to use a continuous piece of
hose to avoid splicing, as this will reduce the compressed air available to the
unit. Always use 3/8” air line with this unit. Once the air is attached to the
unit, set the line pressure to 80 PSI (see Compressed Air Supply section). It is
recommended to use a separator/drier on the air line to prevent any debris
from fouling the actuator valve. Compressed air filter provided by others.
Test the system by pressing and pulling the actuator valve on the side of the
10
unit (See the MAINTENANCE Section for more details). If any problems are found, consult the
TROUBLESHOOTING Section in this manual.
ELECTRICAL
All 3 phase AC Model V410 units have wiring terminated inside the junction box located on the side of the
unit. Motor starters and disconnects are not supplied with the unit (unless purchased as an option), and must
meet local and National Electrical Code. Motors are typically multiple voltage type (e.g. 208/230/460). Make
sure connections in motor junction box correspond to the line voltage you plan to use. Three phase motor
starters (manual or magnetic type) must have properly sized thermal overloads for the voltage and current
required at the motors.
All units are required to have a motor voltage and current check performed at startup. Motor checkout
should be performed with the unit running, all filters in place and cabinet doors closed. Measured motor
current readings should be equal to or below motor nameplate rating. These specifications can be
found on the motor name plate or in the specifications section of this manual. If the motor amp draw does not
fall within the Full Load Rating (FLA) refer to the TROUBLESHOOTING Section of this manual.
THREE PHASE MOTORS
Three phase motors do not have overload protection included in the standard configuration and must be
supplied by the end user, see Figure 4 or page A3 of the Appendix. They are also available from the factory
as a pre-installed option. If these protective circuits are not ordered from the factory, use equipment as
specified by the National
Electric Code or other
applicable authority.
On the three phase models,
the motor can operate in either
direction, and the fan will pump
air in either direction. However,
for proper suction and airflow,
the blower motor should be
turning in a manner such as to
create a suction at the (2) 3”
inlets. To verify the correct
rotation, bump start motor (turn
on briefly then turn off) and feel
the 3” inlet coupling on side of
unit. There should be a suction.
If air is blowing out, reverse any
two wires of the in-coming
power and motor will reverse
direction (3 PHASE ONLY).
Figure 5 shows details on
Figure 4.
changing
the
wiring
configurations. The main power
leads, L1, L2, and L3 are not
differentiated by color. If motor rotation must be changed, then reversing any two of the leads will produce
this result (e.g. reverse. L1 and L2 or L2 and L3). Figure 6 shows the voltage configuration hook-ups on the
A2
three phase motor. Consult the motor name plate and verify the line input voltage before attempting
to make this change.

CAUTION
IN LARGE PLANTS, WHEN ROLLING UNIT FROM ONE BUILDING TO
ANOTHER, YOU MAY BE ON A DIFFERENT SUBSTATION TRANSFORMER.
UNITS USING A THREE PHASE BLOWER MOTOR MAY RUN BACKWARDS.
CHECK ROTATION IN EACH LOCATION WHERE THE UNIT WILL BE USED
TO ENSURE THAT BLOWER MOTOR ROTATES IN PROPER DIRECTION.
REVERSING SWITCHES ARE AVAILABLE IF REQUIRED.
CAUTION
CABINET DOORS MUST BE CLOSED WHEN OPERATING THE BLOWER.
MOTOR WILL BE OVERLOADED IF RUN WITH THE FILTER DOOR OPEN.
OPERATION
Operation of the Model V410 is very straight forward. Roll the unit to the desired work area and arrange
it so that no equipment will come into contact with the unit. Simply switch the unit ON when smoke or dust
collection is required. Remember to always turn the unit OFF when cleaning the filters.
WARNING
DO NOT OVER-EXTEND THE UNIT POWER CORD REACH.
DISCONNECTING THE POWER SOURCE WHILE UNIT IS IN OPERATION
CAN CAUSE SPARKING.
A3
MAINTENANCE
WARNING
ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM THE POWER SOURCE
BEFORE WORKING ON OR NEAR THE MOTOR OR WIRING
ASSEMBLIES. LOCK OUT DISCONNECTS TO PREVENT UNEXPECTED
APPLICATION OF POWER.
The Model V410 comes standard with (2) CLEAN 2 filter cartridges of 150 square feet of media each.
An optional External Module is available for a final filter. This external module can house either a HEPA
filter or an adsorption bank (AD). Filter access is from the top cover of the module.
The Adsorption Module (AD) is a refillable, finely perforated container to hold the adsorption material in
the air flow. As with the HEPA, it is located on top of the unit. The AD utilizes the same mounting method as
described above. The AD module has a 2" 30% poly after-filter to remove any carbon (or other) dust that
occurs from adsorption material breakdown.
VIBRA PULSE SYSTEM MAINTENANCE - HOSE REPLACEMENT
The Vibra Pulse hose that is used to clean the filter will eventually wear out. Check for signs of excessive
wear when doing normal filter service or if a decrease in filter cleaning effectiveness is observed. A hose
should be replaced when it has worn to a length of 6”. Replacement of the hose is a simple operation. With
the unit turned off, disconnect power and lock out. CAUTION: Disconnect Air Supply before working
on unit. Proceed as follows to accomplish the hose replacement.

Turn unit off. Disconnect power and lock out.
Disconnect air supply before working on unit and lock out.
Remove filter access door.
Remove cartridge filter(s) from unit.
Remove dust tray and dispose of material in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
The Vibra Pulse actuator mechanism consists of the following:
1 fixed and 3 loose components (per filter), see Figure 7.
a. Fixed component is the 3/8” rigid hose barb attached to the Vibra Pulse
Plenum chamber
b. The loose components involved in the replacement operation consist of:
1 - Reusable spring (7PR1-2004)
1 - Reusable hose clamp (7HG3-1003)
A4
1 - Hose (2VP2-1012), quantity as required by applicable unit (1 hose per
cartridge).
Figure 7.
7. Remove the old Vibra Pulse hose. This is done by loosening the hose clamp securing the spring at the
top of the VP hose where the VP hose attaches to the 3/8” hose barb. Slide the spring and hose clamp
down the VP hose and set aside for later use. Next, remove the old VP hose, this is sometimes easiest to
do by cutting the hose at the top, where it fits over the hose barb, to allow free removal. Discard old
hose after removing.
8. Loosely place hose clamp (retained from step above) into the first closed loop of the spring after first
opening clamp to maximum diameter, see Figure 8.

14. Reinstall filter access door.
15. Reconnect air line and power.
16. Test the Vibra Pulse system for operation manually or electrically
as appropriate for your unit’s configuration.
Figure 10.
FILTER SERVICE
The filters have been charged with pre -coat (an inert white mineral dust) at the factory. This precoat material will increase initial efficiency and help to extend the cartridge filter life. Upon initial unit start up,
go through one cleaning cycle (see filter cleaning below), most of the pre-coat will be removed from the filter
and fall into the dust pan. The remaining pre-coat will stay on the filters. Save any material that falls into the
pan for treating replacement filters. A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) will be furnished upon request.
Please contact the Airflow Systems Representative or the AFS Factory.
Filter service is required when a reduction of airflow (suction) is observed. The optional pressure gauge is
used to judge the amount of particulate collected on the filter. As the worker gets accustomed to the units’
effectiveness of capture, and the associated gauge reading, the gauge can then become an indicator of filter
condition.
The optional pressure gauge is calibrated as follows:
In most applications, with clean filters, turn unit on and mark the pressure reading on the
gauge. Make a second mark at 2.0" higher than initial reading (i.e. if initial reading is 3.0" the
second mark should be at 5.0"). Note that a reading of 5.0” is typical of when the filter should
be cleaned in most applications.
NOTE
Unit can continue to run safely beyond the 5.0 " pressure differential recommended,
however performance will be reduced. Exceeding 6.0" pressure differential across the
filter may cause reduced filter life.
A7
FILTER REPLACEMENT/ REMOVAL FOR CLEANING
1. Turn unit OFF and disconnect from power source.
2. Remove filter access panel.
3. Release filter retaining latch located between cartridges,
(see Figure 11.) This will lower the filter holding frame.
Unhook latch to let holding frame rest at lowest position.
4. Remove filters, being careful not to damage the Vibra
Pulse hose which hangs suspended in the center of each
filter.
5. To replace, reverse above procedure. Avoid inadvertently
trapping the Vibra Pulse hose between filter end cap and
cabinet. Also, make certain that the filters are not cocked.
(A cocked filter will not properly seal to the blower inlet,
resulting in significant contaminant by-pass.)
Figure 11.
FILTER CLEANING - VIBRA PULSE SYSTEM
1. Turn unit OFF and let motor/blower come to a complete stop.
2. Connect the 3/8” airline (supplied) to REGULATED shop air (80 PSI, see Compressed Air Supply
section). Compressed air filter provided by others.
3. PRESS and hold the pulse cleaning button in for 5 - 10 seconds. Next,
PULL the button outwards for 5 - 10 seconds. This will clean the other
side of the filter. Repeat this process 2 or 3 times. See Figure 12.
4. Open the filter access door. Remove and empty the dust tray in the
bottom of the unit. This will prevent the dust from recollecting on the filter
when the unit is restarted. Close door.
5. Turn the unit ON and check suction and/or pressure gauge. If additional
Figure 12.
cleaning is needed repeat the steps listed above. (During multiple
cleanings, some dust may come out of the hose or blower outlet.
This is normal.)
6. If the filters are overloaded, in-place cleaning may not dislodge all of the collected dust. The filter will need
to be removed and tapped out in the dust pan or replaced with a new filter. DO NOT BLOW OFF
WITH COMPRESSED AIR DUE TO POSSIBLE OVER-EXPOSURE OF WORKERS AND
POTENTIAL FILTER DAMAGE.
7. Any moisture such as oil or water on the filter will cause shortened filter life. If the filters plug with dirt
due to oil or water, they may not pulse clean. (See Note below.)
8. If shop air is not clean and dry it may be necessary to install an airline filter/drier to prevent premature filter
replacement.
CAUTION
A8
IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE ONLY CLEAN AND DRY COMPRESSED AIR
TO CLEAN THE FILTERS, OTHERWISE CONTAMINATION TO CARTRIDGE
FILTER ELEMENT WILL RESULT. DO NOT HOOK UP TO A COMPRESSED
AIR LINE THAT HAS AN AUTOMATIC OILING DEVICE ON IT. OIL OR
WATER WILL MAKE CLEANING DIFFICULT AND SHORTEN THE FILTER
LIFE.
NOTE
Not all applications will self-clean. Sticky or oily dust may not dislodge from the filter. In this case, the
filters must be cleaned or replaced.
HEPA FILTER:
(On models equipped with optional external module) cannot be cleaned. See your distributor for replacement.
AD MODULE:
(On models equipped with optional external module.) The adsorption material
(activated carbon or other) can be emptied from the module and refilled with
fresh adsorber. Refer to the Figure 13. Use the large opening to fill the majority
of the module. After as much material can be put in as possible, use the small filler
hole on the end to top off module. It is important to get the AD module as full as
possible as any low spots or air gaps will allow the gas being captured to by-pass
or be exposed to a reduced amount of scrubbing. Always dispose of the spent
adsorption material in accordance with local, state and federal
regulations.
Figure 13.
The module is refillable as follows:
1. Remove module and take to a well ventilated area: DUST IS RELEASED DURING THE
REFILLING OPERATION.
2. Remove cover plate and empty contents of module into a plastic bag or other approved container.
WEAR ADEQUATE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE DEVICES.
A9
3. Refill with the new adsorber material. After refilling, shake module to pack granules tightly
before
replacing cover plate to make sure module is full. Remove the end cover plate and top-off any void in the
module.
4. Vacuum any excess carbon dust that occurs from settling during handling. After re-installing, stay clear of
the unit outlet area as some dust may be expelled when unit is first turned on. The unit should be test run
after each refilling operation.
OTHER SERVICE
Most other components of your Model V410 air cleaner require little or no routine servicing. Items such
as motor/blower, tubing, and gaskets should be checked twice a year under normal usage; more frequently
under severe 24-hour-per-day usage. Clean, repair, or replace parts as necessary. Replacement parts are
available from your Airflow Systems distributor. The following section lists replacement parts for the Model

MOTOR WIRING GUIDE
(BRANCH CIRCUIT)
WIRING
To connect motor for proper voltage and rotation, refer to connection diagram on nameplate or inside terminal/conduit
box. If power factor correction capacitors are used for individual motor power factor correction, do not exceed maximum
recommended value.
All aspects of the installation must conform to the requirements of the NEC, including Article 430 (Motor Circuits and
Controllers), and all local codes. Wherever possible, each motor should be powered from a separate circuit of adequate
capacity to keep voltage drop to a minimum during starting and running. Increase wire size where motor is located a
distance from the power source. Wire size must be adequate to minimize voltage drop during starting and running. Refer to
Tables A and B for suggested wire sizes. Distances shown are one-way between source and load. Portable cords, if used,
should be as short as possible to minimize voltage drop. Long or inadequately sized cords, especially on hard starting
loads, can cause motor failure. Insulate and protect motor lead connections to prevent cut-through from sharp edges and
vibration. Tape wire nuts to prevent loosening. All electrical connections in system must be secure to prevent voltage drop
and localized heating.
Determine direction of rotation before connecting driven equipment to prevent damage. Remove shaft key if motor is to
be operated at no-load. On three phase motors, interchange any two line leads (not motor leads) to reverse rotation. On air
compressors, rotation of flywheel should direct air towards the cylinders. Look for rotational arrow on flywheel.
All motors must be securely and adequately grounded by wiring with a grounded, metal-clad raceway system, using a
separate ground bond wire connected to bare metal on the motor frame, or other suitable means. Refer to NEC Article 250
(Grounding) for additional information.
Explosion-proof motors incorporating over temperature thermostats should be controlled with a magnetic starter. The
thermostat circuit must be wired in series with the holding coil circuit, as shown on tag or nameplate on motor, to remove
power from the starter coil if motor overheats.

READ THIS MANUAL CAREFULLY BEFORE USING AUTOCLEAN EQUIPPED UNIT.
RETAIN THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
SAFETY RULES
Before installing or operating this system, read this supplemental Owners Manual. All safety and cautionary
notes from the primary Owners Manual are in effect after installation of the AUTOCLEAN system. As with
all electrical devices, it should only be serviced by a qualified electrical technician.
AIRFLOW SYSTEMS SETS THE STANDARD
The AUTOCLEAN filter cleaning control system automatically controls off line cleaning of the filters in the
equipment. Automatic operation assures the filters are cleaned regularly to assure peak equipment operating
performance and filter life. The system uses a timer sequence circuit board to activate from one to five filter
cleaning stations. User adjustments of cartridge cleaning duration, frequency of cleaning cycles and time
between individual filter cleaning times are easily set on the board. In the case of the single filter systems, the
duration of the cleaning is controlled by a time delay relay.
SPECIFICATIONS
ELECTRICAL:
Standard Input Voltage: 115 VAC single phase, 60 cycles ( Higher input voltages available when used with a
step-down transformer. )
AFS has a policy of continuous research and improvement, and reserves the right to change design and
specifications without notice.
INSPECTION AND UNPACKING
Immediately upon receiving the unit, carefully examine the unit for damage during transit. If the unit is
damaged, note on the Bill of Lading or contact the last carrier for filing a claim within 10 working days.
Even if there is no visible exterior damage to the shipping container, there may be CONCEALED damage
that could be caused by improper handling during shipping. Unpack the unit, saving all packaging materials,
and examine the contents carefully. If there is internal damage to the unit, it must be reported to the last carrier
and a claim filed within 10 working days. The damage inspector will want to see the damaged unit and all of
the packing materials.

PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Through out this manual certain NOTES, CAUTIONS and WARNINGS are used. They are defined as:
Note:
CAUTION:
WARNING:
Used to indicate an instruction that will make a particular task simpler or easier.
Used when a process or item may cause damage to the equipment or system.
This term is used when personal injury or death is possible.
ELECTRICAL
The AUTOCLEAN control was designed to operate in conjunction with a motor control device and
requires a 115 VAC supply. This supply may be from the input power source (115 VAC or 230 VAC units)
or step-down transformer (230/460/575 VAC, 3 phase units ). The 230 VAC single phase units supply
115V to the AUTOCLEAN control with one power lead and the neutral connection. The step-down
transformer is located inside the enclosure with the AUTOCLEAN board to minimize wiring. If the
AUTOCLEAN is a field retrofit, check that the transformer primary is correctly wired for the input voltage
connected.
For proper operation, the AUTOCLEAN control must be powered at all times. Electrical power
supply connection must be made after a service disconnect. This can be the same disconnect which
is used for the air cleaner motor. If service of the air cleaner or control is required, open the
service disconnect.
WARNING
THE AUTOCLEAN CONTROLLER IS ALWAYS POWERED UNLESS THE
SERVICE DISCONNECT IS OPENED. TO SERVICE, OPEN THE
DISCONNECT AND FOLLOW RECOGNIZED LOCKOUT/TAGGING
PROCEDURES BEFORE SERVICING.

SINGLE PHASE CONNECTION
The factory installed AUTOCLEAN control requires a minimum of field wiring in order to operate. All
115 VAC units with factory installed unit ON/OFF power switch are wired and require no further electrical
wiring other than connection input to the power. Figure 1 illustrates the electrical connections for a 115 VAC
single phase unit with a single cartridge. See Figure 2 for 115 VAC single phase, dual cartridge units with a
relay. Figure 3 illustrates115 VAC single phase, dual cartridge units without a relay. Note: Should you
receive a new board to replace an old, take the two blue wires that went to terminals A and C on the
old board and wire them both to terminal A on the new board.
Figure 1. (Single Cartridge)
Figure 2. (Dual Cartridge with Relay)
Figure 3.(Dual Cartridge without Relay)
6
THREE PHASE CONNECTION
Three phase connections require the use of a manual or magnetic motor starter to allow the
AUTOCLEAN system to operate off-line. The main power leads, L1, L2, L3 are not usually differentiated by
color. The transformer power can be drawn from any two of these input power wires. NOTE: The voltage
from one lead to neutral or ground is not the same as phase to phase. Therefore, DO NOT wire the
transformer with one lead to ground. If motor rotation must be changed, then reversing any two of the leads
will reverse the motor, but will not have any effect on the AUTOCLEAN control (e.g. reverse L1 and L2 or
L2 and L3). Figure 4 shows the typical electrical hook-up for the AUTOCLEAN used with a 3-phase motor
on single cartridge units. The connections shown are typical. Figure 5 illustrates 3-phase, dual cartridge units
with a relay and Figure 6 shows 3-phase, dual cartridge units without a relay. See Figures 7 (with relay) and
8 (without relay) for the 3 Phase Model DT-3000. Note: Should you receive a new board to replace an
old, take the two blue wires that went to terminals A and C on the old board and wire them both to
terminal A on the new board.

AUTOCLEAN UNIT OPERATION
When wired as shown above, the AUTOCLEAN control will sense operation of the air cleaner fan motor.
When the motor is turned ON, the AUTOCLEAN patiently waits for when the motor is turned OFF. When
OFF occurs, the AUTOCLEAN will wait for a time to clean. This time is adjustable from 0 to approximately
10 minutes. Single cartridge units are not adjustable.
The AUTOCLEAN will then cause the Vibra-Pulse cleaning system to clean each of the filter stations,
pausing for approximately 30 seconds to 10 minutes between filters to allow the air supply to refresh. The
amount of time each filter is cleaned is determined by the CLEAN TIME control which is adjustable from 0 to
60 seconds. Refer to the primary Owners Manual for recommendations on CLEAN TIME duration, or start
with an initial setting of 15 seconds. Once the complete sequence has been followed, the control waits for
motor startup to occur again. Restarting the motor during a cleaning cycle stops cleaning operation and resets
the controller for the motor off.
NOTE: The AUTOCLEAN will clean through when power is first applied unless the fan is started.
To increase the OFF TIME, adjust the timer potentiometer clockwise. Refer to Figure 9. Full counter
clockwise is 5 seconds, the halfway position is approximately 5 minutes and full clockwise is 10 minutes. The
ON TIME duration potentiometer setting process is the same as described for the OFF TIME, except the
range is 2 seconds to 60 seconds.
Figure 9.
** On Dust Drawer models, the collected dust MUST be removed from the unit after each
completed cleaning cycle to ensure that it is not re -captured on the filter. When collecting explosion
hazardous materials, removal of collected dust may be a Code requirement.
