and are wearing eye and ear protectors.
• Keep the air supply hose away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
• Do not fit the sander to any stand or clamping device that may damage
the tool.
GENERAL USE
• Stay alert and use common sense - do not use the sander when you are
tired or under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication.
• Always wear eye protection when using the sander - eye protection must
provide protection from the front and the side.
• Always wear a dust mask when sanding dusty materials.
• Always wear ear protectors when using the sander.
• Do not over-reach - Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
• Never use any type of bottled gas as a source of power for the sander.
• Do not connect the air supply hose with your finger on the trigger of the
sander.
• Do not exceed the maximum pressure for the sander: 90 psi / 6.2 bar.
• Check hoses for leaks or worn condition before use and ensure that all
connections are secure.
• Do not use the sander for any other purpose than that described in this
booklet.
• Do not carry out any alterations or modifications to the sander.
• The sander should be serviced as required by your CLARKE dealer.
• Never use the sander if it is defective or operating abnormally.
• ALWAYS ensure the workpiece is firmly secured leaving both hands free to
control the sander.
• ALWAYS ensure the sander has stopped before putting it down after use.
• ALWAYS ensure that any attachments are correctly fastened before
connecting the sander to the power supply.
4
• Always disconnect from the air supply when:
a)
Performing any maintenance.
b)
The sander is not in use.
c)
The sander will be left unattended.
d)
Moving to another work area.
• Avoid damaging the sander for example, by applying excessive force.
• ALWAYS maintain the sander with care. Keep it clean for best and safest
performance.
• Quick change air-line couplings should not be located at the tool. They
add weight and could fail due to vibration.
• DO NOT force or misuse the sander. It will do a better and safer job at the
rate for which it was designed.
• This sander vibrates during use. Vibration may be harmful to your hands or
arms. Stop using the tool if discomfort, a tingling feeling or pain occurs and
seek medical advice before resuming use. Refer to Vibration Emissions on
page 13.
TRANSPORTATION
• Never carry the sander by the air supply hose.
• Never carry the sander with your finger on the trigger.
STORAGE
• When not in use the sander must be disconnected from the air supply and
stored in a dry place out of the reach of children (preferably in a locked
cabinet).
• Avoid storing the sander in environments where the temperature falls
below 0oC.

AIR SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
WARNING: COMPRESSED AIR CAN BE DANGEROUS. ENSURE THAT YOU
ARE THOROUGHLY FAMILIAR WITH ALL PRECAUTIONS RELATING TO THE
USE OF COMPRESSORS AND COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY.
• Air compressors used with the sander must comply with the appropriate
European Community safety directives.
• Use only clean, dry, regulated compressed air as a power source for the
sander.
• A build up of moisture in the air compressor will accelerate wear and
corrosion in the sander. Ensure any moisture is drained from the
compressor daily and the inlet filter is kept clean.
• If an unusually long air hose is required,(over 8 metres), line presure may
need to be increased.
A typical airline
arrangement is
shown on the right.
If an automatic inline filter/regulator/
lubricator unit is
used it will keep the
tool in good
condition but should
be regularly
checked and
topped up with oil.
IMPORTANT: If a filter/lubricator unit is not used, the sander should be
lubricated with 2 to 6 drops of oil, at least once a day or after 2 hours work,
depending upon the working environment. The oil can be inserted through
the airline connection point.
AIRLINE SAFETY
• Never exceed the maximum operating pressure for the sander. A pressure
of 90 psi with a flow of 6 cfm is required. Too high an air pressure will
shorten the life of the tool due to excessive wear.
• The air hose must be rated at least 150% of the maximum operating
pressure of the tool.

VIBRATION EMISSIONS
HAND-ARM VIBRATION
Employers are advised to refer to the HSE publication “Guide for Employers”.
All hand held power tools vibrate to some extent, and this vibration is
transmitted to the operator via the handle, or hand used to steady the tool.
Vibration from about 2 to 1500 herz is potentially damaging and is most
hazardous in the range from about 5 to 20 herz.
Operators who are regularly exposed to vibration may suffer from Hand Arm
Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), which includes ‘dead hand’, ‘dead finger’, and
‘white finger’. These are painful conditions and are widespread in industries
where vibrating tools are used.
The health risk depends upon the vibration level and the length of time of
exposure to it……in effect, a daily vibration dose.
Tools are tested using specialised equipment, to approximate the vibration
level generated under normal, acceptable operating conditions for the tool
in question. For example, a grinder used at 45° on mild steel plate, or a
sander on softwood in a horizontal plane etc.
These tests produce a value ‘a’, expressed in metres per second per second,
which represents the average vibration level of all tests taken, in three axes
where necessary, and a second figure ‘K’, which represents the uncertainty
factor, i.e. a value in excess of ‘a’, to which the tool could vibrate under
normal conditions. These values appear in the specification panel below.
MODEL No: CAT111
DESCRIPTION: AIR ORBITAL SANDER
Declared vibration emission value in accordance
with EN12096
Measured vibration emission value - a: less than
2.5m/s2
Values determined according to EN28622-1
13
You will note that a third value is given in the specification - the highest
measured reading in a single plane. This is the maximum level of vibration
measured during testing in one of the axes, and this should also be taken into
account when making a risk assessment.
‘a’ values in excess of 2.5 m/s2 are considered hazardous when used for
prolonged periods. A tool with a vibration value of 2.8 m/s2 may be used for
up to 8 hours (cumulative) per day, whereas a tool with a value of 11.2 m/s2
may be used for ½ hour per day only.
The graph below shows the vibration value against the maximum time the
respective tool may be used, per day.
The uncertainty factor should also be taken into account when assessing a
risk. The two figures ‘a’ and ‘K’may be added together and the resultant
value used to assess the risk.
It should be noted that if a tool is used under abnormal, or unusual conditions,
then the vibration level could possibly increase significantly. Users must always
take this into account and make their own risk assessment, using the graph
above as a reference.
Some tools with a high vibration value, such as impact wrenches, are
generally used for a few seconds at a time, therefore the cumulative time
may only be in the order of a few minutes per day. Nevertheless, the
cumulative effect, particularly when added to that of other hand held power
tools that may be used, must always be taken into account when the total
daily dose rate is determined.
