additional safety instructions for dust collectors

machine use. this machine is intended to only collect wood dust and chips from woodworking machines. do not use this dust collector as a vacuum or with machines producing dust/chips from metal, asbestos products, lead paint, silica or any products that are not natural wood or manmade wood products, such as plywood or particle boards.

Wear respirator. this machine may blow fine dust particles into the air during operation causing a hazard to the lungs. always wear an approved respirator during machine operation and for a short time after.

suspended dust particles and ignition

sources. do not operate the dust collector in area were explosion risks are high. areas of high risk include, but are not limited to, areas near pilot lights or open flames.

avoiding fires. do not allow steel particles to strike the impeller—this may produce a spark. sparks can smolder in the wood dust for a long time before the fire or flame is detected. if you accidentally collect metal during operation, immediately turn off the dust collector, disconnect it from power, and wait for all moving parts to stop. remove the collection bags and empty the dust into an approved air tight metal container. prevent any chance of accidentally collecting metal again before resuming operations.

Keeping fingers safe. do not place your hands or tools near the open inlet during operation for any reason. the powerful suction could easily cause accidental contact with the impeller which will cause serious personal injury or damage to the machine.

emptying dust. When emptying dust from the collection bags or drum, wear a respirator and safety glasses. empty dust away from ignition sources and into an approved container, then dispose of properly.

dust hazard. Be aware that certain woods may cause an allergic reaction in people and animals, especially when exposed to fine dust. make sure you know what type of wood dust you will be exposed to in case there is a possibility of an allergic reaction.

safe servicing. disconnect the machine from power and allow the impeller to come to a complete stop before servicing, maintenance, adjustments.

operational Questions. if, at any time, you are experiencing difficulties performing the intended operation, stop using the machine! then contact our tech support or ask a qualified expert how the operation should be performed.

like all machinery there is potential danger when operating this machine. accidents are frequently caused by lack of familiarity or failure to pay attention. use this machine with respect and caution to decrease the risk of operator injury. if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, serious personal injury may occur.

no list of safety guidelines can be complete. every shop environment is different. always consider safety first, as it applies to your individual working conditions. use this and other machinery with caution and respect. failure to do so could result in serious personal injury, damage to equipment, or poor work results.

section 2: poWer supply

availability

Before installing the machine, consider the availability and proximity of the required power supply circuit. If an existing circuit does not meet the requirements for this machine, a new circuit must be installed. To minimize the risk of electrocution, fire, or equipment damage, installation work and electrical wiring must be done by a qualified electrician in accordance with all applicable codes and standards.

circuit information

A power supply circuit includes all electrical equipment between the main breaker box or fuse panel in your building and the incoming power connections at the machine. This circuit must be sized to safely handle the full-load current drawn from the machine for an extended period of time.

Electrocution, fire, or equipment damage may occur if machine is not correctly grounded and connected to the power supply.

full-load current rating

The full-load current rating is the amperage a machine draws at 100% of the rated output power.

On machines with multiple motors, this is the amperage drawn by the largest motor or sum of all motors and electrical devices that might operate at one time during normal operations.

full-load current rating at 110v ...... 14 amps full-load current rating at 220v ....... 7 amps

The full-load current is not the maximum amount of amps that the machine will draw. If the machine is overloaded, it will draw additional amps beyond the full-load rating.

If the machine is overloaded for a sufficient length of time, damage, overheating, or fire may result— especially if connected to an undersized circuit.

To reduce the risk of these hazards, avoid overloading the machine during operation and make sure it is connected to a power supply circuit that meets the requirements in the following section.

-8-

For your own safety and protection of property, consult a qualified electrician if you are unsure about wiring practices or electrical codes in your area.

Note: The circuit requirements listed in this man-

ual apply to a dedicated circuit—where only one machine will be running at a time. If this machine will be connected to a shared circuit where multiple machines will be running at the same time, consult a qualified electrician to ensure that the circuit is properly sized for safe operation.

circuit requirements for 110v

This machine is prewired to operate on a 110V power supply circuit that has a verified ground and meets the following requirements:

nominal voltage ...............................110v/120v cycle ..........................................................60 hz phase ........................................... single-phase circuit rating ...................................... 15 amps plug/receptacle ............................. nema 5-15

circuit requirements for 220v

This machine can be converted to operate on a

220V power supply. To do this, follow the

Voltage

Conversion instructions later in this section. The intended 220V circuit must have a verified ground and meet the requirements that follow:

nominal voltage .............................. 220v/240v cycle ..........................................................60 hz phase ........................................... single-phase circuit rating ...................................... 15 amps plug/receptacle ............................. nema 6-15

model g0710 dust Collector (mfg. since 6/10+)

grounding requirements

In the event of certain types of malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current—in order to reduce the risk of electric shock.

For 110V operation: This machine is equipped with a power cord that has an equipment-grounding wire and a grounding plug (similar to the figure below). The plug must only be inserted into a matching receptacle (outlet) that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Serious injury could occur if you connect the machine to power before completing the setup process. DO NOT connect to power until instructed later in this manual.

Improper connection of the equipment-grounding wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The wire with green insulation (with or without yellow stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire. If repair or replacement of the power cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if you do not understand these grounding requirements, or if you are in doubt about whether the tool is properly grounded. If you ever notice that a cord or plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and immediately replace it with a new one.

extension cords

We do not recommend using an extension cord with this machine. If you must use an extension cord, only use it if absolutely necessary and only on a temporary basis.

Extension cords cause voltage drop, which may damage electrical components and shorten motor life. Voltage drop increases as the extension cord size gets longer and the gauge size gets smaller

(higher gauge numbers indicate smaller sizes).

Any extension cord used with this machine must contain a ground wire, match the required plug and receptacle, and meet the following requirements:

minimum gauge size ...........................12 aWg maximum length (shorter is better).......50 ft.

Make sure that the surface upon which the machine is placed will bear the weight of the machine, additional equipment that may be installed on the machine, and the heaviest workpiece that will be used. Additionally, consider the weight of the operator and any dynamic loading that may occur when operating the machine.

Space Allocation

Consider the largest size of workpiece that will be processed through this machine and provide enough space around the machine for adequate operator material handling or the installation of auxiliary equipment. With permanent installations, leave enough space around the machine to open or remove doors/covers as required by the maintenance and service described in this manual.

See below for required space allocation.

Children or untrained people may be seriously injured by this machine. Only install in an access restricted location.

Physical Environment

The physical environment where your machine is operated is important for safe operation and the longevity of its components. For best results, operate this machine in a dry environment that is free from excessive moisture, hazardous chemicals, airborne abrasives, or extreme conditions.

Extreme conditions for this type of machinery are generally those where the ambient temperature range exceeds 41°–104°F; the relative humidity range exceeds 20–95% (non-condensing); or the environment is subject to vibration, shocks, or bumps.

Electrical Installation

Place this machine near an existing power source.

Make sure all power cords are protected from traffic, material handling, moisture, chemicals, or other hazards. Make sure to leave access to a means of disconnecting the power source or engaging a lockout/tagout device.

collection system material selection

you have many choices regarding dust collection ducting, but flexible hose is the most common for this size of machine. however, be aware that there is a fire or explosion hazard if plastic duct material is used for dust collection without being grounded against static electrical charge build-up.

flexible rubber hose, polyethylene, plastic flexhose and other flexible ribbed hose is generally used for short runs. there are many different types of flex hose on the market today. these are manufactured from materials such as polyethylene, pVC, cloth hose dipped in rubber and even metal, including steel and aluminum.

if using flex-hose, you should choose one of the many types that are designed specifically for the movement of solid particles, i.e. dust, grains and plastics. however, the cost of specifically designed flexible duct can vary greatly. grizzly offers polyethylene and steel flex hose.

Be sure that you extend the bare copper wire down all branches of the system. do not forget to connect the wires to each other with wire nuts when two branches meet at a “y” or “t” connection. ensure that the entire system is grounded. if using plastic blast gates to direct air flow, the grounding wire must be jumped (see

figure 8) around the blast gate without interruption to the grounding system.

plastic Blast gate

always guard against static electrical build up by grounding all dust collection lines.

duct grounding

plastic flex-hose is an insulator, and dust particles moving against the walls of the hose creates a static electrical build up. this charge will build until it discharges to a ground. if a grounding medium is not available to prevent static electrical build up, the electrical charge will arc to the nearest grounded source. this electrical discharge may cause an explosion and subsequent fire inside the system.

to protect against static electrical build up inside a non-conducting duct, a bare copper wire should be placed inside the duct along its length and grounded to the dust collector. you must also confirm that the dust collector is continuously grounded through the electrical circuit to the electric service panel.

We also recommend wrapping the outside of all plastic ducts with bare copper wire to ground the outside of the system against static electrical build up. Wire connections at y’s and t’s should be made with wire nuts.

attach the bare ground wire to each stationary woodworking machine and attach the dust collector frame with a ground screw as shown in

figure 9. ensure that each machine is continuously grounded to the grounding terminal in your electric service panel.

model g0710 dust Collector (mfg. since 6/10+)

dust collection

since each machine produces a different amount of sawdust, the requirements for the minimum amount of Cfm to move that sawdust is unique to the machine (for example, a planer produces more sawdust than a table saw). Knowing this required Cfm is important to gauging which size of duct to use.

Based on the dust port size of the machine to be connected to the dust collector, figure 10 will give you a close estimation of the Cfm that is reduced because of dust port size. a machine that generates large wood chips should be placed as close to the dust collector as possible.

section 4: operations

to reduce the risk of serious injury when using this machine, read and understand this entire manual before beginning any operations.

damage to your eyes and lungs could result from using this machine without proper protective gear. always wear safety glasses and a respirator when operating this machine.

NOTICE

if you have never used this type of machine or equipment before, We strongly recommend that you read books, trade magazines, or get formal training before beginning any projects. regardless of the content in this section, grizzly industrial will not be held liable for accidents caused by lack of training.

general

operating your model g0710 is simple and straightforward, but keep in mind that it is intended for single machine use and is not designed to draw dust through long runs and multiple ports simultaneously. We do not recommend using ducting longer than 10 feet. otherwise, dust collection efficiency will be greatly reduced.

do not put hands or small objects near inlet openings during operation. objects sucked into the inlet will hit the impeller blade. failure to heed this warning could result in personal injury or property damage.

section 6: maintenance

always disconnect power to the machine before performing maintenance. failure to do this may result in serious personal injury.

schedule

for optimum performance from your machine, follow this maintenance schedule and refer to any specific instructions given in this section.

daily check:

• Loose mounting bolts.

• Worn switch.

• Worn or damaged wires.

• full collection bag.

• any other unsafe condition.

lubrication

since all bearings are shielded and permanently lubricated, simply leave them alone until they need to be replaced. do not lubricate them.

impeller tightening

periodically check the impeller to make certain it is tight on the motor shaft. any unusual vibration or noise may be an indication the impeller has loosened. there is one set screw which holds the impeller to the shaft, and a cap screw (left-hand threaded) on the end of the shaft. these can be accessed through the inlet cover, as shown in

figure 21. always disconnect power from the dust collector before performing maintenance on the impeller.

-20-

. impeller screw locations.

always wear a respirator and safety glasses when emptying the dust collection bag on the dust collector. sawdust may cause allergic reactions or respiratory problems.

bag cleaning

always empty the collection bag on a regular basis. emptying the collection bag allows the machine to operate at a much higher level of efficiency. always wear the appropriate respirator or dust mask and safety glasses when emptying the collection bag. small dust particles can escape the bag during emptying, causing them to become airborne and easily inhaled. this microscopic airborne dust is unsafe to breathe and can cause serious health problems.

While the model g0710 excels at collecting the majority of wood dust produced by your machines, it is not an air filter; therefore,

we strongly rec-

ommend using the supplemental aid of a shop air filter such as the grizzly g0572 shown on

page

19. air filters are designed to collect the smaller dust particles that a dust collector bags cannot trap.
