1 ALLAWAY MANTA CENTRAL VACUUMING SYSTEM
The central vacuuming system includes cleaning products, wall inlets, a dust pipe system and a central unit. The Manta central
vacuuming system is designed for vacuuming rubbish, indoor dust, etc. in hotels, libraries, day nurseries, schools, for example. The
Allaway pre-separator must be used when vacuuming water, wet waste, large quantities of sand, or other material that differs
from normal indoor dust.
1.1 Central unit
The central unit [figure 1] comprises a dust separator with a filter, a dust
canister and a side channel blower complete with a control central unit. In
addition, the central unit features the switches required for operation and
maintenance.
The number of people that can use the system simultaneously depends on
the layout of the dust pipe system [cleaning areas] and the type of the central
unit. Manta 3000 is designed as a single-user [1] system and Manta 6000 can
be used by either one [1] or two [2] users at the same time.
Due to the noise, it is not recommended to stay close to an operational
central unit for long periods of time [sound level approximately 70 dB(A)].
We recommend that the place where the central unit is located, is kept
locked.
Figure 1
1.2 Dust pipe system and wall inlets
In multi-user systems the dust pipe system is designed in such a way that one
suction line leads from the central unit to the cleaning area of each user [figure
4]. Attaching several users to a single suction line of 44 mm in diameter at the
same time weakens the suction power and introduces a risk of blockages. When
using different suction lines, however, the number of people corresponding to
the specifications of the central unit can operate simultaneously. The wall inlets
must be positioned in the structures in such a way that all cleaning areas can be
reached. The wall inlets are airtight and equipped with a start system that triggers
the central unit into operation. Steel wall inlets are equipped with a magnetic reed
start [figure 2].
In multi-user systems, wall inlets are often opened while under
pressure prevails in the pipe system; the wall inlets must therefore
have a strong steel structure.

1.3 Cleaning products
The cleaning products consist of a suction hose with a handle, a telescopic wand and nozzles. All parts can be bought separately
or as cleaning sets. When buying the cleaning products, ensure that the suction hose coupling muff is the right one for the hose:
80912 Suction Hose Coupling Muff REED, 80914 Suction Hose Coupling Muff REED + KEY.
1.4 Pre-separator
An Allaway pre-separator must be used when vacuuming liquids, wet waste, large quantities of sand, or other material that differs
from normal indoor dust. The pre-separator protects the pipe system from wear and damage.
The central vacuum cleaner must under no circumstances (not even with a pre-separator) be used for
vacuuming flammable materials! The static electricity resulting from the airflow may create sparks which
may ignite the flammable material!
Keep the instructions for future reference!

2 USING THE MANTA CENTRAL VACUUM CLEANER
2.1 Operational modes of the central unit
The operational mode is selected using the operating switch on the central unit
[figure 3].
OPERATING SWITCH
0 = Maintenance Mode
When the switch is in the 0 position, the central unit will not start. This mode is selected, when
 The dust canister is being emptied
 The filter is being serviced
 There is no need for the equipment
to be on stand-by
TEST = Test Mode
A recurrent mode, which is ideal for testing the operation of the central unit.
AUTO = Stand-by Mode
Stand-by mode for normal operation.
Central unit can be started from a wall inlet.
Figure 3
The 0 position of the operating switch does not cut the power from the central unit. If the electrical parts
of the unit are being serviced, or the property and thus the equipment will be vacant for a long period
of time, the central unit must be disconnected from the mains by detaching the three-phase plug from
the power socket.
2.2 Vacuuming with a central vacuuming system
When the central unit is on stand-by [see section 2.1 Operational Modes of the Central Unit], vacuuming can be commenced
by inserting the hose coupling muff of the suction hose into a wall inlet and by turning the red magnetic start muff into the
start position [see section 1.2 Dust Pipe System and Wall Inlets]. Opening the cover of the wall inlet will require strength if the
system is already operational and under pressure prevails in the pipe system.
Note the division of cleaning areas [e.g. figure 4] with systems designed for several users in order to ensure sufficient suction
power and the transportation of rubbish in the pipe system. Keeping the wall inlets open when it is not necessary reduces suction
power in other cleaning areas. There is no risk of damaging the central unit even if several wall inlets are in use simultaneously,
but the cleaning power in the nozzle will be significantly reduced and the possibility of blockages when vacuuming heavy particles
(stones etc.) increases as the movement of particles weakens.
Sticky substances and large shards of glass may cause blockages in the pipe system. The central vacuum cleaner must not be
used for vacuuming liquids unless an appropriate pre-separator is connected to the system. The wall inlets are equipped with
catchers where large particles that have entered the suction hose will be caught. Long particles are caught in the elbow coupling
of the wall inlet where they are easily removable.

2.3 Cleaning of the cleaning products
The cleaning products are subject to wear and tear depending on the level of usage and the floor material, and they must
be replaced when necessary. The life of the equipment can be extended considerably by cleaning accumulated dirt from the
equipment after use and by storing it appropriately.
After vacuuming, detach the telescopic wand and the nozzles from the handle and store them separately, with the bristles of the
floor/carpet nozzle drawn in. Store the hose in the hose holder.
Avoid storing cleaning products in direct sunlight as long-term exposure to UV light makes the plastic parts, especially the hose,
brittle and reduces their life.
2.4 Cleaning of the filter and changing of the waste bag
The filling-up of the dust canister must be monitored regularly and a full bag replaced
by a new one before the contents exceed the volume of the dust canister. The
waste bag is changed as follows:
Turn
the operating switch to the 0 position [figure 3].
Turn the filter shake lever on the side of the central unit [figure 5; (A)] firmly a few times.
Wait
until the dust has settled into the waste bag.
Release the lock lever of the dust canister (B) and bring it to the down position,
thus making it possible to remove the dust canister from the central unit.
Figure 5
Remove
the full waste bag from the dust canister and check that there is no rubbish left at the bottom of the canister or the down draft hole. Clean the lifting plate (C) of the dust canister and ensure that the perforated plate in the dust canister is clean and correctly in place.
Install
the new, intact waste bag carefully into the dust canister so that the edges of the bag fold over the edges of the dust canister [figures 6 and 7].
Install
the dust canister with the bag back in place and turn the lock lever of the dust canister to the up position.
Turn
Figure 6
the operating switch to the AUTO position.
The central unit must not be used without a waste bag! Only use waste
bags supplied by Allaway, product number 18092.

3 MAINTENANCE
When emptying the dust canister and cleaning the filter as well as whenever any other kind of maintenance is being carried out,
the operating switch must be in the 0 position (section 3.1) and under pressure must be removed by opening a wall inlet.
Be careful not to touch the motor or the side channel blower that
protrude from the back of the unit. The temperature of these may
be as high as 80°C.
There are no parts in the electric motor, the side channel blower or other electric
equipment that need to be serviced by the user. In case of faults, the system must
be disconnected from the power supply by removing the three-phase plug from
the power socket, for example, and an authorised Allaway service dealer must be
contacted.
3.1 Cleaning and replacing the filter
The filter of the central unit is cleaned by washing, or replaced once the suction
power has decreased, after the dust canister has been emptied 20-30 times. The
filter can be washed at 40°C using normal detergent. The majority of dirt is rinsed
away prior to washing. After the wash, while the filter is still slightly damp, it must
be brushed smooth. The filter must be dry prior to installation. The filter can be
tumble-dried at a low temperature.

If the vacuum cleaner has been used with a damaged or incorrectly installed filter, an
authorised Allaway service dealer must inspect the cleaning system.
Only use the cleaning method outlined in section 3.1. Other
cleaning methods may damage the filter and cause the system to
malfunction!
3.2 Maintenance of the down draft filter
Allaway Manta central unit has a down draft system, the purpose of which is to hold
the waste bag in its place in the dust canister. If the waste bag does not stay in place
[if it rises], first remove the possible under pressure from the pipe system by opening
a wall inlet and check the following:
K
L

The waste bag must be intact and installed in accordance with the instructions for the dust canister.

No rubbish must be located between the edge sealing of the edges of the dust canister and the taper of the central unit. Remove possible rubbish.

The sealing of the top edge and the bottom of the dust canister must be intact and appropriately installed.
Kuva 12

The perforated elevation plate at the bottom of the dust canister must be intact
and clean as well as correctly installed.
M
If the above have been checked and the waste bag still rises out of place in the dust
canister, the down draft system of the central unit must be cleaned as follows:

Turn the operating switch to the 0 position.

Undo the hexagonal screw (L) of the down draft filter (K) [figure 12].

Remove and clean the filter (M) and the filter cup (N) [figure 13].

Detach the process hose (O) and clean it and other parts connected to it, as well as the channel in the lifting plate of the dust canister using e.g. compressed air or metal wire.


Reassemble the parts.
Turn
the operating switch to the AUTO position.
We recommend that an authorised Allaway service dealer service the central vacuuming system on a regular basis in
order to ensure the flawless functioning of the system. Contact details for authorised Allaway service dealers can be
found, for example, at www.allaway.fi.

4 USEFUL TIPS
4.1 If the central unit will not start from a wall inlet

Check that the operating switch of the central unit is in the AUTO position.

Check whether the central unit starts from other wall inlets as normal.

If the central unit starts in the TEST position of the operating switch but not from the wall inlets, ensure that the weak current plug is connected to the start circuits of the wall inlets..
4.2 If the suction power has weakened
Check
that there are no objects in the wall inlet that may block the airflow.
Check
that the suction hose is intact and that there are no objects in the hose that may block the airflow.

Check that other wall inlets are closed and that they have no leaks.

Check that the pipe system does not leak.

Check that the dust canister is not full.

Check that the filter is not blocked.
Check
that the dust canister is correctly in place and that the sealing is intact.
4.3 If the Suction or Exhaust Pipe System Is Blocked
Replace
Ensure
the waste bag in accordance with section 2.4.
that no fire dampers have been released in the exhaust pipe and that there are no other obstacles.
Locate
the blockage e.g. by sucking pieces of kitchen paper through the wall inlets. If the strips of paper end up in the waste bag, the tested length of pipe is clear. Once you have located the blockage, remove the collector pipe from the suction coupling of the central unit. Use another powerful vacuum cleaner to suck at the wall inlets of the blocked branch.
If
the blockage cannot be removed through suction and its location can be pinpointed, it is worth examining whether it is easy to access the pipe system without dismantling the structures or by a reasonable amount of dismantling. If the pipe system is accessible, the blockage can usually be removed easily by opening a pipe joint.
Never use overpressure such as compressed air to remove blockages as overpressure breaks the pipe
joints!
If
the blockage cannot be removed by following the above instructions, contact an authorised Allaway service dealer.
4.4 For Inspecting the pipe system for compactness
Close all wall inlets and start the central unit for a maximum of 1 minute by connecting the start circuit with a metal wire. If
air is escaping from the exhaust pipe after 15 seconds of running the unit, there is a leak in the pipe system. The leak must be
located and repaired.
