BREAKAGE OR DAMAGE DURING SHIPMENT
The transportation company is fully responsible for all shipping damage and will resolve problems promptly if you handle it
correctly. Please read these instructions carefully.
Examine the contents of all shipping cases. If you find any damage, call your transportation agent at once and have them
make a description on the freight or express bill describing the damage and the number of pieces. Then write us and we will
send you the original bill of lading. Get a claim blank from the express or truck company. Fill the claim form out. Attach the
claim blank to the original bill of lading together with a copy of our invoice. Attach a memo on which you show the value of the
damaged goods. Mail or hand these papers to your local transportation agent. They will process your claim with reasonable
promptness.
Please note, we cannot and will not enter claim for damages. If we filed claim here, it would be sent to your local freight agent
for verification and investigation. This time can be saved by your filling the claim directly. Every consignee is on the ground
floor and in contact with the local agent who inspects the damaged goods and thus, each claim can be given individual
attention.
Since our goods are packed to comply with the regulations of all railroad, truck and express companies, we cannot allow
deduction from any invoice because of any damage, however, be sure to file your claim promptly. Our goods are sold F.O.B.
factory. We take receipt from the transportation company certifying that the goods were delivered to them in good order, and
our responsibility ceases.
It is seldom that any breakage or damage occurs in any of our shipments, and in no case will the customer be out any
expense if they follow the above instructions.
Be sure to keep all damaged goods subject to examination of the truck or express company inspector, who may call on you
some time later. These damaged goods, of course, will belong to them, and they will inform you what to do with them. If you
dispose of these damaged goods, your claim may not be paid.

BASIC DESCRIPTION
The SUPER VAC CLOUD 9 SMOKER is delivered with a Remote Control Timer and a 50 feet extension cord.
It is designed with safety and reliability in mind. This unit will generate pure white non-toxic smoke for as long as you want
(100% duty cycle with specified line voltage). This smoker is also equipped with an Auto Clean Cycle (ACC). This system
cleans the heating block after the first heating cycle and after every production of smoke preventing residual build-up and
clogging.
At the heart of the SUPER VAC CLOUD 9 SMOKER is an electronic assembly that keeps the heating block at a stable
temperature. This is done by the integration of three electronic fail-safe systems. This design will protect against over and
under-heating conditions and component failures. Also included is a pressure relief safety that will protect against over
pressurizing or gas regulator failures.
•
When an overheating of the heating block is detected, a safety circuit is triggered, cutting off power to the heating
element, preventing hazardous conditions.
•
When an under-heating condition is detected, the unit will stop producing smoke until the temperature of the heating
block is back within parameters.
•
When the internal temperature of the unit exceeds 140ºF, a separate safety circuit is triggered, cutting off power
preventing damage and hazardous conditions.
•
Finally, a pressure relief valve, activated at a 125 psi, protects the pneumatic system. This will prevent over
pressurizing.

SETTING UP
WARNING
It is recommended that this unit be operated under the supervision of personnel that have read and understood this manual.
Never install this unit overhead.
The smoker must be operated and stored in an upright position on a stable and level surface.
Do not operate closer than six feet (6 ft.) from personnel.
The maximum operating pressure is 40 psi.
Use in a well-ventilated area.
WARNING
RISK OF FIRE HAZARD - The smoker output shall not be installed closer than six feet (6 ft.) from any open flame.
NOTE:
Cut back on smoke production when the level of smoke desired is achieved.
DO NOT OVER SATURATE.

GAS AND FLUID REQUIREMENTS
6.1
Gas
WARNING
Gas cylinder must be manufactured, inspected and tested in accordance with U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) 3AL
WARNING
To avoid fire hazard as well as explosion risk, use only industrial grade Carbon Dioxide (CO2) gas or industrial grade
Nitrogen (N2) gas.
CAUTION
To prevent leaks, always use a neoprene washer when connecting the regulator to a CO2 cylinder.
NOTE:
When operating the CLOUD 9 SMOKER using CO2 as a propellant, the CO2 bottle must be in an upright
position to prevent freezing of the regulator.
WARNING
CO2 and N2 gases have different CGA (Compressed Gas Association) specifications
(CO2 = CGA 320 and N2 = CGA 580). Use the proper regulator. CO2 or N2 gas is used as a propellant when generating
smoke; it is also used to clean the heating block when the ACC is initiated. Output pressure can be adjusted by mean of the
CO2 or N2 regulator. The operating pressure range for the CLOUD 9 SMOKER is 10 to 40 psi.
7
6.2
Fluid
WARNING
Operate the Super Vac Cloud 9 Smoker only with the Super Vac Oil-based Smoker Fluid (SVOSF).
Making sure that no other particles are mixed or added to the Super Vac fluid (SVOSF).
CAUTION
The Super Vac Oil-based Cloud 9 Smoker Fluid produces a pure white non-toxic smoke. Use of this cloud 9 smoker with any
other fluid will automatically void the warranty.
Super Vac Oil-based Cloud 9 Smoker Fluid (SVOSF) is available at
authorized Super Vac dealers and distributors.

FILLING OF THE FLUID TANK
CAUTION
To fill the fluid tank, the following sequence must be observed:
•
Turn off the (on/off smoke) switch on the remote timer control (see Fig. A), wait 2 minutes for the ACC and
depressurization of the fluid tank.
•
Now unscrew the red cap located on top of the unit and slowly pour the Super Vac Oil-based Smoker Fluid (SVOSF)
until it reaches the inside bottom of the opening.
•
Avoid overfilling, screw back the cap and make sure it is hand tight.
WARNING
To avoid fire hazard and explosion risk, use only Super Vac Oil-based Smoker Fluid (SVOSF).
The use of any other fluid will void the warranty and may damage the CLOUD 9 SMOKER.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Fig. A CLOUD 9 SMOKER Remote Control Timers
WARNING
BURN HAZARD – The cloud 9 smoker output NOZZLE reaches high temperature – AVOID CONTACT EVEN AFTER
SHUT DOWN.
To power on the unit, the following sequence must be observed:
• Connect the SUPER VAC CLOUD 9 SMOKER to a 110 Vac power outlet and turn on the main power switch located
on the side of the unit near the A.C. cord.
• Turn on the (on) switch on the remote control timer, the red led will come on indicating that the unit is powered, the
yellow led will also come on indicating that the first heating cycle has started. This should take a maximum of 10
minutes.
• Now open the gas cylinder and adjust the regulator to a minimum of 10 psi, the “ready” condition will be indicated by
the green led which will come on when the pre-set temperature is reached; at this stage, the yellow led will go off and
the initial Auto Clean Cycle (ACC) will be automatically triggered.
• After this initial cleaning cycle, which will take approximately 30 seconds, the unit will be ready to produce smoke.
• The smoke output is adjustable by increasing or decreasing the pressure on the CO2 or N2 gas regulator (10 to 40 psi).
The operating temperature of the unit is maintained within a narrow margin the yellow led (heat) will turn on and off from time
to time to indicate heat on and heat off.
If two of the three electronic fail-safe systems (namely, the over-heating or the internal temperature limit) is
detected, the smoke production will stop and the yellow led will start blinking indicating a fail mode. Immediately turn
off the unit, wait 4 to 5 minutes and retry the unit. If the fail mode reappears, disconnect the unit and contact SUPER VAC.
Smoke production will continue as long as all control parameters are within specifications. When the smoke on
signal is turned off, the ACC (Auto Clean Cycle) is automatically triggered to clean the heating block.
