Isocyanate Hazard

Isocyanate Hazard

Spraying materials containing isocyanates creates potentially harmful mists, vapors, and atomized particulates.

Read material manufacturer’s warnings and material

MSDS to know specific hazards and precautions related to isocyanates.

Prevent inhalation of isocyanate mists, vapors, and atomized particulates by providing sufficient ventilation in the work area. If sufficient ventilation is not available, a supplied-air respirator is required for everyone in the work area.

To prevent contact with isocyanates, appropriate personal protective equipment, including chemically impermeable gloves, boots, aprons, and goggles, is also required for everyone in the work area.

Material Self-Ignition

Some materials may become self-igniting if applied too thick. Read material manufacturer’s warnings and material MSDS.

Moisture Sensitivity of

Isocyanates

Isocyanates (ISO) are catalysts used in two component foam and polyurea coatings. ISO will react with moisture

(such as humidity) to form small, hard, abrasive crystals, which become suspended in the fluid. Eventually a film will form on the surface and the ISO will begin to gel, increasing in viscosity. If used, this partially cured ISO will reduce performance and the life of all wetted parts.

NOTE:

The amount of film formation and rate of crystallization varies depending on the blend of ISO, the humidity, and the temperature.

To prevent exposing ISO to moisture:

• Always use a sealed container with a desiccant dryer in the vent, or a nitrogen atmosphere.

Never

store ISO in an open container.

• Keep the ISO lube pump reservoir filled with Graco

Throat Seal Liquid (TSL), Part 206995. The lubricant creates a barrier between the ISO and the atmosphere.

• Use moisture-proof hoses specifically designed for

ISO, such as those supplied with your system.

• Never use reclaimed solvents, which may contain moisture. Always keep solvent containers closed when not in use.

• Never use solvent on one side if it has been contaminated from the other side.

• Always park pumps when you shutdown.

• Always lubricate threaded parts with Part 217374

ISO pump oil or grease when reassembling.

Keep Components A and B Separate

Keep Components A and

B Separate

NOTICE

To prevent cross-contamination of the equipment’s wetted parts,

never

interchange component A (isocyanate) and component B (resin) parts. The gun is shipped with the A side on the left. The fluid manifold, fluid housing, side seal assembly, check valve cartridge, and mix chamber are marked on the A side.

Changing Materials

• When changing materials, flush the equipment multiple times to ensure it is thoroughly clean.

• Always clean the fluid inlet strainers after flushing.

• Check with your material manufacturer for chemical compatibility.

• Most materials use ISO on the A side, but some use

ISO on the B side.

• Epoxies often have amines on the B (hardener) side. Polyureas often have amines on the B (resin) side.

Overview

Overview

XM plural-component sprayers can mix most two component epoxy and urethane protective coatings. When using quick-setting materials (less than 10 minute pot life) a remote mix manifold must be used.

The left side of the mix manifold is intended for the major volume material, or the higher viscosity material if using a 1:1 volume mix. This side is referred to throughout the manual as the resin side or “A” side.

The right side is referred to as the Hardener side or “B” side. The “B” side incorporates a 40 mesh strainer and an adjustable restrictor for balancing the system back pressure and flow.

See F

IG

. 2 to view flow of A and B material inside the

XM Mix Manifold.

The resin and hardener enter the manifold through the manifold inlet ports. The “A” material flows through the manifold to the material outlet port. The injector tube creates a hollow stream of “A” material for the “B” material to fill once the hardener exits the injector tube. The mixed resin and hardener material enters the mix manifold outlet (R) before the mixed material enters the integrator fluid hose. Adjust the restrictor housing to balance the system back pressure and flow.

NOTE:

Always use the integration hose, supplied with your XM plural-component sprayer, after the mix manifold.

NOTE:

Please follow these recommendations for setup:

• Use at least a 3/8 in. (10 mm) x 25 ft. (7 m) integrator hose.

• Install at least 24-elements of static mixer after the integration hose and before the spray gun whip hose.

Installation

Installation

This manifold is designed for use on proportioning pumps with independent drive motors. Use of this manifold on a mechanically linked sprayer without using mechanically linked on/off A and B valves may cause hazardous fluid pressures that can rupture equipment.

Machine Mounted Restrictor Valve

When the mix manifold is used remotely a restrictor valve (222200) is added to the B side outlet of the proportioner. This configuration requires that the machine outlet restrictor be used to set the bar graph on the Ratio

Mode screen.

For assistance in setting up a plural component sprayer, contact your Graco distributor, to ensure that you select the proper type and size equipment for your system.

Fluid Inlets

The A and B fluid inlets are equipped with 1/2 npsm unions in 1/2 in. npt(f) ports. Connect 1/2 in., 3/8 in, or

1/4 in. npsm(f) fluid hoses using the two adapter nipples

(provided).

Remote Circulation Control

Valves

Shutoff check valves (CV) may also be face-mounted on the remote mix manifold to circulate heated material before spraying.

Remote Mounted Manifolds

Machine Outlet Check Valves

The XM sprayer must have outlet check valves (CV) in order to accurately measure pump outlet flow. These check valves are provided in the mix manifold when it is mounted on the sprayer.

When the mix manifold is removed and used remotely, you must add outlet check valves on the machine. Use shutoff check valves 255278 as the outlet check valves as provided in conversion kit 256980. The valves act as severe duty check valves when the check valve handle is open. They act as manual shutoff valves when the handle is closed.

Grounding

Solvent Inlet

Connect the solvent supply line (G) from the solvent pump to the 1/4 npt(m) solvent inlet valve (F). Use a

Graco approved grounded hose rated to withstand the maximum fluid working pressure of the solvent pump.

The hose core must be chemically compatible with the solvent being used such as nylon or PTFE.

Fluid Outlet

Connect a 3/8 in. ID x 25 ft. (minimum) integrator hose

(L) to the fluid outlet (R). Then connect the static mixers

(S) and whip hose (T) to the 3/8 npt(f) integrator hose

(L). Two static mixers are often used, in series.

Mounting

To mount the bare manifold, drill four holes in the mounting surface, and secure with four 5/16-18 x 1/2 in.

(50 mm) screws. See the following illustration for details and dimensions.

6.38 in. (162.05 mm)

Mix manifold and solvent flush system:

use only a Graco approved grounded solvent hose. Not all heated hoses are grounded, and the mix manifold primary ground is through the solvent hose. Ensure that the solvent pump is properly grounded, as instructed in your solvent pump manual. Ensure there is electrical continuity from the spray tip to the grounded solvent hose.

Air compressor:

Follow manufacturer’s recommendations.

Spray gun/dispense valve:

ground through connection to a properly grounded fluid hose and pump.

Fluid supply container:

follow local code.

Object being sprayed:

follow local code.

Solvent pails used when flushing:

follow local code. Use only conductive metal pails, placed on a grounded surface. Do not place the pail on a nonconductive surface, such as paper or cardboard, which interrupts grounding continuity.

To maintain grounding continuity when flushing or relieving pressure:

hold metal part of the spray gun/dispense valve firmly to the side of a grounded metal pail, then trigger the gun/valve.

Operation

Volume Balancing the Mix

Manifold

When the mix manifold is remote mounted ratio errors can occur between the sprayer and the mix manifold; even when the sprayer output ratio is accurate.

The following can occur when the hoses are not volume balanced to the mix ratio:

• Hoses fill to high pressure while metering on ratio.

• Only the “A” material hose comes up to spray pressure.

• Off ratio at the mix point until hose pressures equalize.

Lead/Lag Imbalance

When resin and hardener volume requirements (ratio) and/or viscosities are different an imbalance can occur each time the gun is triggered. This occurs because the fluids can rush out of the manifold near a 1:1 ratio before the sprayer starts.

To avoid this imbalance:

• Add restriction on the hardener (low volume) side to balance the flow at the mix manifold.

• If the mix manifold is remote, pressurize hoses to spray pressure before starting spray mode when mix manifold is remote.

• If the mix manifold is remote, size the fluid delivery hose volume to nearly match the mix ratio. See

Table 1.

Adjust B Mix Manifold Restriction on XM

Sprayers While Spraying

Machine Mounted Mix Manifold

Adjust the restriction stem on the mix manifold to optimize the B side dosing control window. The goal is to create a constant flow on the A side and frequent dosing or a near constant flow on the B side. See the XM operation manual for instructions.

Remote Mounted Mix Manifold

Set Machine Restriction

With the restriction stem on the remote mix manifold open counter clockwise, adjust the restriction stem

(222200) on the outlet of the proportioner to optimize the B side dosing control window. The goal is to create constant flow on the A side and frequent dosing or near constant flow on the B side. See the XM operation manual for instructions.

Set Mix Manifold Restriction

1.

Adjust the restriction stem clockwise until the bar graph on the Ratio Mode screen starts moving to the left. The “B” dosing valve (blue) light will get brighter and the “B” dosing valve will open further.

2.

Turn the restriction valve counter clockwise a half turn, and then lock the adjustment by tightening the nut.

Adjust Restriction on Early Xtreme Mix

Sprayers

To check if the system is balanced watch the “B” dosing valves. The valve should be open (up) most of the time when the gun is triggered. If the “B” valve is giving only short “on” shots, adjust the restrictor in further. “B” fluid should flow most of the time, making only short “off” corrections.

Hose Selection For Feeding A Remote Mix

Manifold

Hoses should be sized to match the hose volume ratio to the mix ratio. The hose size should also allow for minimum pressure drop on the major volume side to meet your flow requirements.

Use Table 1 to match mix ratio, hose selection, and vol-

ume ratio. Use Table 2 on page 15 to reference amount

of pressure drop for 50 ft lengths of different hose sizes.

Size remote mix manifold hoses to:

• Minimize pressure drop on the high volume and often higher viscosity resin side to achieve higher flow and pressure at the gun while spraying.

• Allow both A and B material hoses to come up to spray pressure together when A and B fluids are metered into the hoses on ratio.

14 312749G

Operation

• Balance the inherent stall pressure between the resin “A” and hardener “B” sides when the gun closes and also when triggered. This reduces the lead/lag error at the mix point when the spray gun is triggered.

To add remote recirculation, install shutoff check valves

255278 on front of mix manifold assembly. This is a high quality carbide ball and seat valve designed to close and be leak free when in spray mode.

Use adjustable restrictor valves 222200 to control the flow rate back into the supply.

. 5: Remote Mix Manifold Recirculation

NOTE:

When recirculation valves are moved remote downstream of the dosing valves, the machine can no longer automatically check that the recirculation valves are closed and leak free when going into Spray Mode.

If the recirculation valves leak while you are spraying, you will be off ratio with no indication. See XM sprayer operation manual 312359 for more information.

See F

IG

. 1, page 7. Typically, two static mixer housings

(S, Part No. 262478) are connected to the static mixer adapter (V) on the integrator hose (L). These housings use plastic mix elements, available in a package of 25

(W, Part No. 248927).

NOTICE

Never use a swivel union on the mixer inlets. The union will compress the tube and make it impossible to remove the mix element.

The o-ring (29) is used as a retainer ring, not a seal. It may be scratched or deformed from pushing the screen

(28) back in.

5.

Install “B” inlet union (31) on manifold block (1).

To clean the housing and replace the mix element:

1.

Relieve pressure, see page 11. Remove mixer

housings (S) from integrator hose (L) and from whip hose (T).

2.

Place flats of mixer housing (S) in a grounded vise.

Push mix element (W) out of the inlet end.

3.

If necessary, use a 1/2 in. drill bit to drill out old material and clean the mix element from the inlet end, down to the internal shoulder at the outlet end.

4.

Use a brush to clean any debris in housing (S).

5.

Insert new mix element, wide end first.
