Potential Hazards
Equipment Misuse
WARNINGS! This equipment is for professional use only. Serious injury can result from highpressure fluids. To reduce the risk of injury, read and ensure you understand the information in this
user guide before assembling and operating the Dymax pressure tank.
!

Read all instructions before operating the equipment. Use the equipment for its intended purpose
only. If you are uncertain about usage, call Dymax Application Engineering before continuing.
Improper use such as modifying or removing parts, using incompatible materials, over pressurizing
the equipment, or using worn/damaged/incompatible parts can result in serious bodily injury.
Do not alter or modify this equipment in any way. If worn parts need to be replaced, use only
Dymax parts and accessories.
Inspect all equipment components daily. Repair or replace any worn or damaged parts
immediately. Do not use the equipment until any worn or damaged parts have been replaced.
Use materials which are compatible with the equipment's wetted parts. Reference the material
manufacturer's warnings. If you are unsure about material compatibility, contact Dymax
Application Engineering.
Do not exceed the maximum working pressure of the lowest rated system component. This
pressure tank has a 60 psi (410 kPa, 0.41 MPa, 4.1 bar) maximum working pressure. Check the
rating on all dispensing equipment and accessories to ensure they can withstand the operating
pressure of the reservoir.
Never use 1.1.1 – trichloroethane, methylene chloride, or other halogenated hydrocarbon solvents
or fluids containing such solvents in pressurized aluminum equipment. Use in pressurized
equipment could result in a chemical reaction, with the possibility of explosion. Comply with all
applicable fire, electrical, and safety regulations.
Tipping and Dropping
WARNINGS! Place the equipment on a sturdy, level surface. Check that all tubing lengths are
long enough to allow for unrestricted movement of the system components. Do not lift pressurized
equipment. If the equipment needs to be moved, do not pull on the tubing to move the reservoir.
Do not tip the reservoir or place it on its side. Fluid can enter and damage the pressure regulator
and the pressure relief valve leading to an over-pressure condition within the reservoir. Once the
pressure regulator and/or pressure relief valve become blocked, they must be replaced with new
Dymax parts before the equipment can be operated again.
Do not drop the pressure tank. Dropping a pressure tank from any height can damage the pressure
relief valve, pressure regulator, fittings, reservoir body, or cover. A damaged pressure regulator or
damaged pressure relief valve may lead to an over-pressure condition within the reservoir while a
damaged reservoir body or cover can lead to an explosion. If your reservoir is dropped, it must be
thoroughly inspected for any cracks or damage to the pressure regulator and/or pressure relief
valve. Any damaged parts must be replaced with Dymax parts before the equipment can be
operated again. If you are unsure about the condition of your tank, please contact Dymax.

Dymax Bottle Drop-in Pressure Tank User Guide
Tubing
WARNINGS! Pressurized tubing can be very dangerous. Worn, damaged, or misused tubing
can develop a leak, spraying the contents of the tank at high pressure. Materials can be sprayed
into eyes or onto skin causing serious bodily harm. Fire and other property damage can also occur
from unwanted spraying.
Before pressurizing the system, make sure all fluid connections to the tank are secure and route
tubing away from traffic areas, sharp edges, moving parts, and hot surfaces.
Inspect all tubing for cuts, leaks, or other damage and replace any damaged tubing immediately.
Check that the material being dispensed is compatible with the tubing material. Contact Dymax
Applications Engineering if you are unsure of tubing/material compatibility.
Do not expose tubing to operating temperatures above 50°C (122°F) or below 0°C (32°F).
Pressurized Equipment
WARNINGS! Ruptured components in pressurized systems can spray or splash materials on
the skin or in the eyes causing serious injury. Do not try to stop or repel fluid leaks with your hand,
body, glove, or rag. In the event of a ruptured component, stop work immediately, disconnect the
air supply and depressurize the tank. Any damaged parts must be replaced with Dymax parts
before the equipment can be operated again.
Follow the pressure relief procedure whenever you are instructed to relieve the pressure, stop
dispensing, clean, check, or service equipment, or install or clean the fluid nozzle.
Tighten all the fluid connections before operating the equipment.
Inspect the fluid line tubing and couplings daily for damage or wear. Replace worn, damaged, or
loose parts immediately.
Fire and Explosion (For Spraying Applications)
WARNINGS! Ground all equipment in the work area. Improper grounding, poor ventilation,
open flames, or sparks can cause hazardous conditions and result in a fire, explosion, or other
serious injury.
If static sparking occurs or an electric shock is felt while using the equipment, stop spraying
immediately. Do not use the equipment until you identify and correct the problem.
Always work in a well ventilated area. Some materials give off flammable fumes or vapors. Upon
buildup, these fumes can result in a fire or explosion.
Keep the work area free of debris (i.e. solvents, rags, gasoline). Always keep a fire extinguisher
compatible with your equipment and processes in the work area in case of fire.
Electrically disconnect all the equipment in the spray area and extinguish all open flames or pilot
lights.
Dymax Bottle Drop-in Pressure tank User Guide
Do not smoke in the work area.
Do not turn on or off any light switch in the work area while operating or if fumes are present.
Do not operate a gasoline engine in the work area.
Chemical
WARNINGS! Hazardous chemicals can give off fumes that can cause serious injury or death if
inhaled, swallowed, or splashed in the eyes or on the skin. Wear respiratory protection and
protective eyewear, gloves, and clothing. Consult the chemical manufacturer for recommended
personal protective equipment and hazards specific to the chemical being used.
Fumes may contain both gases (vapors) and dust (smoke given off by a substance as a result of a
chemical transformation).
Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for all chemical products
you are using prior to commencing work.
Store hazardous chemicals in approved containers.
Dispose of hazardous chemicals according to all local, state, and federal regulations.
Use only chemicals that are compatible with the system.
