I. Warranty
RUWAC warrants that new equipment which are complete units and are sold and/or manufactured by RUWAC, Inc. will be
free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 18 months from date of shipment or 12 months from date of
start-up, whichever come first. RUWAC warrants that replacement parts sold hereunder will be free from defects in
material or workmanship for a period of 120-days after the date of shipment. RUWAC machines that have been
completely re-built at the factory will carry a 180-day warranty from date of shipment. All field repairs preformed by
authorized RUWAC service personnel are covered by a 120-day parts only warranty.
RUWAC, Inc. will not assume any responsibility under the terms of this limited warranty on equipment, which has not been
paid in full. This warranty does not apply to any equipment that has been disassembled, repaired, or otherwise altered by
any person without the written authorization of RUWAC’S service department, nor does it apply to any product that has
been subjected to failure sure to corrosive or abrasive attack, misused, damaged, or improperly installed, nor does it apply
to motors, controls, and components not manufactured by RUWAC, Inc. Motors, controls, and other Sub vendor’s components therefor are warranted only to the extent of the manufacture’s warranty. All warranty work on such products must be
authorized by RUWAC, Inc. and must be performed in an authorized shop as designated by the manufacturer. RUWAC
sole liability and buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy hereunder is the replacement or repair at RUWAC’S option of products not complying with this warranty. Such repair or replacement shall be F.O.B. RUWAC’S factory, and RUWAC
reserves the right to invoice all expenses incurred when repairs are made in the field at the request of the customer,
except as specifically set forth herein, RUWAC makes no warranty express or implied, with respect to the products and/
or service supplied hereunder, this warranty is in lieu of and excludes all other warranties, including without limitation, any
warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or conformance to purchaser’s specifications.

Safety
CAUTION: Standard Ruwac WS machines are not to be used for the removal of liquids or any volatile, viscous,
flammable or explosive media. If you are unsure about your application requirements consult your Ruwac representative.
CAUTION: Standard Ruwac WS machines are designed for intermittent use, i.e. not more then 2 hours continuously. If
you are unsure about your application requirements consult your Ruwac representative.
CAUTION: A dust mask should be worn when working with used filters.
CAUTION: Disconnect the machine from the power source before and during inspection and/or maintenance.
CAUTION: Machines equipped with a reverse pulse module must always be supplied adequately when the machine is on.
The module is controlled by an electrical sequential timer (requires a 110 , 220 or 240 volt power supply) or
differential pressure switch. The module itself requires a source of compressed air of 90 PSI at 2-4 CFM (depending on
module). This device prevents the accumulation of material on the filter and therefore prevents the machine’s operation
from being interrupted due to material blockage.
CAUTION: Machines equipped with a motorized shaker must be supplied with a three phase, 230-460 volt (depending
on motor) power supply when ever the machine is on. The motorized shaker is controlled by an electrical sequential timer
(requires a 110 volt power supply), a differential pressure switch or a manual switch. Manual switch models should be
actuated before and after every use while the vacuum is off. This device prevents the accumulation of material on the filter
and therefore prevents the machine’s operation from being interrupted due to material blockage.

WNS & WS DIRECT BAGGING SERIES INSTRUCTIONS:
BAG-TO-VALVE ATTACHMENT & EMPTYING
During operation, the Direct Bagger valve is kept closed by the negative pressure in the vacuum.
When the vacuum is turned off, the valve will open and empty the contents of the vacuums into the
attached plastic bag. An adjustable counter weight is located on the valve actuator. This weight may
require adjustment depending on the material being dumped into the bag. A thumb screw is located
on the counter weight. If the material is not being dumped into the bag once the vacuum is full, then
reposition the counter to react to the weight of the material inside. Remove safety pin prior to use,
otherwise gravity drop will not seat properly.
Note: The Direct Bagger valve is located below the vacuum producer.
Two bag clamps are located to each side of the valve. Each clamp has a red handle.
1
Move each handle into the up
position (handle above horizontal
position.) This moves the bag
clamp away from the valve.
2
Open the plastic bag fully (less
folds in the bag will allow the bag
fill easier.) Wrap the opening of the
bag as shown in picture, and close
the clamp by lowering the red
clamp handle.
3
Wrap the second half of the bag
around the valve and close the
second clamp.
To remove the bag, tie off the bag with a zip tie or wire tie before you open both clamps.

WNS & WS SILO VACUUM SERIES INSTRUCTIONS:
SILO DRUM RELEASE & EMPTYING
The Silo System drum is comprised of two locking pins located on each side of the bars attached to the
drum lid of the silo. Each locking pin has a black ball handle for release, and each can be inserted into the
designated guide to securely position the lid in the upward (open) and downward (closed) positions. When the
drum lid is fixed in the upward position, it allows for the removal and emptying of the drum caddy from underneath the silo system.
Note: To reattach, place drum underneath silo, release the locking pins on each side,
and allow the lid to lower onto the drum.
1
Standing on either side of the
machine, grab the ball pin lock
and pull it out of the guide.
3
Repeat the process for the
other side.
2
Once ball pin is released, pull
up on the guide bar until it locks
in the upward position, making
sure the ball pin clicks into its
designated hole.
4
Once both pins and lid are
locked in the up position, remove the drum by rolling the
caddy unit from under the silo.
