specific risks. Refer back to these General Warnings pages. Additional procedure-specific warnings will be included
where applicable.
Warnings
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD
Flammable fumes and liquids, such as propane gas, gasoline and combustible fuel, in work area can
ignite or explode. To help prevent fire and explosion:
• Do not use equipment unless fully trained and qualified.
• Do not allow open containers of flammables within 25 ft (7.6 m) of equipment. Do not operate equipment within 10 ft (3 m) of any structure, combustible material, or other gas cylinders.
• Shut off all burners when adding fuel to equipment.
• Close the tank shut-off valve immediately if you smell propane gas; extinguish all open flames. If gas
odor continues, keep away from equipment and immediately call the fire department.
• Follow lighting instructions for the burner and torch.
• Do not heat thermoplastic traffic marking compound material above its maximum temperature rating.
• Fire extinguisher equipment shall be present and working.
• Keep work area free of debris, including solvent, rags and gasoline.
EQUIPMENT MISUSE HAZARD
Misuse can cause death or serious injury.
• Do not leave equipment unattended.
• Keep children and animals away from work area.
• Do not exceed the maximum working pressure or temperature rating of the lowest rated system
component. See Technical Data in all equipment manuals.
• Check equipment daily. Repair or replace worn or damaged parts immediately with genuine
manufacturer’s replacement parts only.
• Do not alter or modify equipment.
• Use equipment only for its intended purpose. Call your Graco distributor for information.
• Do not fill material beyond maximum capacity.
• Route gas lines, hoses, wires and cables away from traffic areas, sharp edges, moving parts, and hot
surfaces.
• Do not kink or overbend gas lines.
• Do not override or defeat safety devices.
• Do not operate the unit when fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
BURN HAZARD
Equipment surfaces and fluid that is heated can become very hot during operation. To avoid severe
burns:
• Do not touch hot fluid or equipment.
• Wait until equipment and material has cooled completely.
CARBON MONOXIDE HAZARD
Exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide, which is colorless and odorless. Breathing carbon
monoxide can cause death. Do not operate in an enclosed area.

•
Ignite pilot burner only and allow the mV reading to
stabilize.
•
Shut pilot burner (turn gas safety valve knob OFF).
Note the mV reading where magnet drops out.
If magnet unlocks at mV reading < 120 mV, the magnet is
OK. NOTE: When magnet unlocks a click can be heard
and mV reading may fluctuate slightly.

Kettle Thermometer
Kettle Thermometer
Replacement
Calibration
NOTE: The thermometer can only be replaced while the
material inside the kettle is warm. If material inside the
kettle is cold, it will adhere to the probe and cause it to
separate from the thermometer once it is unscrewed.
To Check Kettle Thermometer Calibration:
1. Empty material from kettle until material level is just
below the thermometer probe (162) (approximately
1 inch of material).
2. Unscrew thermometer (38) from kettle coupling.
NOTE: Look inside the kettle to make sure the
probe is rotating at the same rate as the thermometer as you unscrew it. If the probe is sticking, use the
hand torch to heat the probe and material so that
the probe can rotate freely.
1. Move ThermoLazer™ to an area with no wind.
2. Turn temperature control to 400° F (204° C).
3. Agitate material for 4 to 5 minutes.
4. After control has reached steady state temperature
and burners do not cycle more than once per minute, insert remote calibrated temperature probe in
material and directly adjacent kettle temperature
control probe.
5. Compare temperature of remote calibrated temperature probe to thermometer.
Installation
1. Apply pipe sealant to thermometer (38) threads.
2. Install new thermometer into kettle coupling and
tighten. NOTE: Make sure the face of the thermometer is position toward the front of the unit for optimal
viewing (an approximately 15 degree angle).
6. If kettle thermometer is lower than the remote calibrated temperature probe, turn adjusting screw
counterclockwise.

Securing Bead Dispenser Wheel
Securing Bead Dispenser
Wheel
To properly dispense beads, drive wheel (27) must be in
direct contact with tire (89). If drive wheel (27) becomes
loose and/or starts to slip, use allen wrench to tighten
set screw (211).
Adjust the bead box linkage rod (181) so bead box drive
wheel (27) is touching ThermoLazer tire (81) when
screed box is in down (but not open) position. A slight
downward force on the bead box rod (181) should be
required when inserting the clevis pin through the clevis
(179) and deployment bar (78).
1. With screed box in down (but not open) position,
rotate the bead box wheel by hand.
NOTE: To ensure proper contact between drive wheel
(27) and tire (81), make sure air pressure is always at 60
psi (4.14 bar).

Linkage Rod Adjustment
Adjustments can be made to linkage rods by removing
clevis cotter hairpin (268), clevis pin from clevis (179),
loosening nuts (128), and then turning clevis as required
to lengthen or shorten rod connectors.
To ensure proper application of beads and thermoplastic, make sure screed box linkage rod (182) measures
13.13 in. (33.34 cm). Be sure to measure where nut
(128) meets clevis (179) when checking for proper linkage rod length.

Loading
If the screed box/bead dispenser box actuator does not
remain in the “down and locked” position, adjust the
3/4-16 lock nut by turning clockwise 1/4 to 1/2 turn or
until the actuator does not freely rotate.
Preload screed box pivot arm to ensure gate closes fully
before lifting screed box off the ground. If screed box
leaks when closing and lifting, increase loading.
1. Unhook bottom of box pivot arm spring (199).

2. Move bottom of box pivot arm spring to desired hole
and reconnect. Moving the spring in will decrease
loading, while moving the spring out will increase
loading.

If screed box leaks after placing spring at maximum
loading, replace box pivot arm spring.
