2. Set metering dial to desired percentage.
3. Remove FOAM ACCESS cap.
4. Connect pick up hose to Stortz connection.

3. Slowly open FLUSH valve.
4. Maintain 100 P.S.I. pump pressure and run flush for at least 3 minutes. Rotate metering dial while flushing.
NOTE: If off truck access was used, open off truck foam access valve and pick up fresh water through pick up tube for 3 minutes

PRODUCT WARNINGS
WARNING: For use by training fire fighting personnel ONLY.
WARNING: 200 PSI inlet pressure to the eductor is the required operating pressure. Do not operate inlet to eductor over 250
PSI.
WARNING: The nozzle flow rating must be matched to eductor flow rating.
WARNING: Ensure that length and size of hose plus elevation of nozzle above the eductor is within guidelines established in the
tables provided.
WARNING: Check all foam concentrate lines for leaks. Intake of air will result in improper metering of foam concentrate.
WARNING: Open and close all valves slowly.
WARNING: Charge all lines slowly to facilitate a controlled water pressure build up during start-up.
WARNING: For use with water and standard liquid fire fighting foams only.
104287
WARNING: Do not throttle the flow through a shutoff downstream of the eductor. This can cause the eductor to shut down
because of too much back pressure.
WARNING: Ensure all lines are clear before use.
WARNING: Always reduce inlet pressure to 100 PSI before flushing.
WARNING: Replace metering panel plate or off truck foam access plate if they become damaged and not easily read.
WARNING: Do not throttle any valves in the eductor circuit. They must be fully opened and closed.
WARNING: The eductor system is configured for optimum performance. Do not alter in any manner.
WARNING: The eductor system includes both plastic and rubber components. These components can be damaged if cleaned
with industrial strength cleaners. Always use warm water and mild detergents when cleaning.
WARNING: Drain all lines after each use when the temperature drops below freezing. Water freezing inside the lines, valves and
eductor can damage the system.
WARNING: Air is compressible and can store a great deal of energy under pressure. It is important to bleed air from the system
prior to operating.
WARNING: Do not attempt to lubricate any part of the eductor system. No lubrication is required.
WARNING: Your truck eductor and off truck foam access system should be inspected after each use, to ensure it is in good
operating condition. If damage is detected, do not use the product. Contact Akron Brass for repair instructions.
Qualified personnel should be used in all repair and maintenance activities.
Degradation of discharge performance indicates that the product is in need of repair. Immediately upon determining discharge
performance degradation, the product should be taken out of service and checked to determine components that are worn and out
of spec. Those components should be replaced and the product tested prior to placing back into service.
Water leaking from any product indicates wear damage. If this occurs, the product should be removed from service, repaired, flow
tested to ensure all is okay, prior to placing it back into service.
Difficult to operate products can indicate damage has been incurred, or that abrasive particles are in the mechanism. Upon noticing
this, the product should be taken out of service, repaired and tested.
