System Information

This manual describes pumps designed to be part of a

Hydra-Cat dispensing system that will proportion, mix, and dispense two-component fluids. The fixed ratio proportioners accurately pump and proportion two– component materials by powering two or three positive displacement pump lowers from a common air motor.

This assures that the stroke rate and stroke length of all pump lowers are identical, providing constant proportioning. The mix ratio is fixed by selecting compatible sets of two or three lowers (see Configurator

Product Order Form 309002 ).

The basic proportioner includes an air motor, lower displacement pumps, air controls, fluid inlet hardware, fluid outlet hoses, manifold blocks and relief valve.

Additional proportioner accessories are selectable to complete the proportioner pump (see Configurator

Product Order Form 309002 ).

Bare Pumps

Installation

Bare pumps, with relief valves and inlet kits but without stands, are available for those installations which require a highly customized system. For a safe and efficient system, Graco recommends that the air and fluid components supplied with the Wall Mount and

Stand models also be used in customized systems. In addition, the accessories shown in the Typical Installation drawings and discussed in the following pages of this manual should be used.

Be sure all accessories are sized properly for the air and fluid requirements of your system.

Read all instructions in the Installation section for further details.

NOTES:

1.

Models with three displacement pumps always use the two outer displacement pumps to supply the resin and the middle displacement pump to supply the hardener.

2.

Label all pumps, hoses, fluid regulators, etc. to indicate whether they are for the resin side or hardener side of the system.

Mounting the Pump

Mount the pump to suit your installation. The bare pump can be mounted on a wall bracket or on a stand.

See the Mounting Hole Layout on page 19.

For a wall mount, be sure the bracket and wall are strong enough to support the pump, accessories, plumbing and stress caused by pump operation.

Locate the bracket about 5 ft (1.5 m) above the floor.

Installation

WARNING

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD

Improper grounding could cause static sparking, which could cause a fire or explosion. To reduce the risk of property damage or serious injury, follow the grounding instructions below.

The following grounding instructions are minimum requirements for a system. Your system may include other equipment or objects which must be grounded.

Check your local electrical code for detailed grounding instructions for your area and type of equipment. Your system must be connected to a true earth ground.

Available Accessories (must be purchased separately)

1.

Air hoses: use only grounded hoses with a maximum of 500 feet (150 m) combined hose length to ensure grounding continuity.

2.

Air and Paint Line Filters: locate all filters and learn all filter cleaning procedures before operating the system. Optional filters are available to meet particular system needs. Be sure all filters are checked and cleaned every day.

3.

Filters: be sure your hydraulic power supply (U) is equipped with a suction filter to the hydraulic pump and a system return line filter (S) of 10 micron size.

Carefully follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on reservoir and filter cleaning, and periodic changes of hydraulic fluid. Use only Graco approved hydraulic oil. Order Part No. 169–236, 5 gallon (19 liter) or

207–428, 1 gallon (3.8 liter).

a.

Loosen the grounding lug locknut (Fig. 4,

Item BB) and washer (AA).

b.

Insert one end of a 14 ga. (1.5 mm @ ) minimum ground wire (G) into the slot in lug (CC) and tighten the locknut securely.

7.

Spray gun or dispensing valve: grounding is obtained through connection to a properly grounded fluid hose and pump.

8.

Fluid supply container: according to local code.

9.

Object being sprayed: according to your local code.

WARNING

A fluid drain valve (L) is required in both fluid lines to the gun, to help reduce the risk of serious injury, including splashing of fluid in the eyes or on the skin.

The fluid drain valve assists in relieving fluid pressure in the displacement pump, hose, and spray gun. Triggering the gun to relieve pressure may not be sufficient.

10.

All solvent pails used when flushing , according to local code. Use only metal pails, which are conductive, placed on a grounded surface. Do not place the pail on a nonconductive surface, such as paper or cardboard, which interrupts the grounding continuity.

11.

To maintain grounding continuity when flushing or relieving pressure , always hold a metal part of the dispensing unit firmly to the side of a grounded metal pail, then trigger the dispensing unit.

h.

Fluid drain valves (L): are required in your system to relieve fluid pressure in the hose and gun (see the WARNING above).

5.

Fluid hoses: use only grounded fluid hoses.

12 308986

Installation

Air Control Accessories

Install the accessories in the order shown in Fig. 5.

Mount only the air regulator (E) and a master air valve (A) at the pump. Mount all other accessories on separate wall brackets to reduce stress on the pump inlet. Note that one air filter (B) can serve multiple pumps by using an air manifold downstream from the air filter.

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

Bleed-type master air valves (A) are required in the system in the positions shown in the Typical Installation drawings. These valves are used during system pressure relief to relieve air trapped in the air line. Trapped air can cause the pump to cycle unexpectedly and result in serious injury from moving parts, fluid injection, or fluid splashing.

3.

Install a pump runaway valve (D) for each feed pump to automatically shut off the air to the pump if the pump accelerates beyond the pre-adjusted setting. A pump which runs too fast can be seriously damaged.

4.

Install an air line lubricator (C) for automatic air motor lubrication.

5.

Install an air filter (B) to remove harmful dirt and moisture from the compressed air supply.

Automatic Pressure Relief Valves

See Fig. 6.

B A

E A F

WARNING

COMPONENT RUPTURE HAZARD

To reduce the risk of component rupture, which could cause serious injury and property damage, the appropriate automatic pressure relief valve (A) is required for each fluid on a plural component pump.

These valves automatically relieve fluid pressure if the pump output pressure exceeds the valve’s preset pressure. Over-pressurization may occur if there is a fluid line clog upstream from the valve or if any other condition exists that causes one of the pumps to cavitate and direct all fluid pressure to the other pump(s).

G

See Configurator Product Order Form 309002 to determine the preset pressure in your system.

Installation

Automatic Pressure Relief Valves

(continued)

Fig. 6. Two drain bottle kits (B) are included with the stand mount models to catch the drainage if the automatic pressure relief valves (A) open.

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

Be sure to use the drain bottles and drain lines provided. If system pressure is exceeded, fluid emitted from the automatic pressure drain valves may be at pressures over 3000 psi (21 MPa, 207 bar). To reduce the risk of serious injury from fluid injection or fluid splashing, make sure the drain bottles are securely fastened to the frame or wall so that they can handle a sudden discharge of pressurized fluid. Discharged fluid on floors can also cause a slipping hazard if not collected.

Additional System Components

Install and connect the feed pumps, solvent pump, heaters, etc. Refer to the Typical Installations

(pages 7, 8 and 9) for parts information.

Use a dry air kit or a nitrogen regulator kit to protect the fluid in the supply containers from moisture that can crystallize the fluid and cause the ball checks to malfunction. See Accessories in Configurator Product

Flushing

When to Flush the System

D

Flush the system before its first use to remove the light oil which was left in after factory testing.

How to Operate the Mixer Manifold

Push handle (KK) down to open or up to close the mixer manifold fluid valves (LL) . See Fig. 15.

D Flush the manifold mixer (N), using the solvent pump, as frequently during the day as necessary to avoid exceeding the pot life limit of the material being pumped.

D Flush frequently enough during regular operation to prevent clogged passages due to material being overheated or dried out in any part of the system.

Clogged passages in the heater can be very difficult to clean and can reduce heating efficiency, flow rate and pressure.

How to Flush the System

Flushing

WARNING

HOT SURFACE HAZARD

If your system is equipped with heaters, always shut off the main power to the heaters just prior to completing spraying.

Shut off heater 10 minutes prior to shutdown to cool the fluid and the heater. This reduces the risk of serious injury from burns. Flush system immediately after shutdown.

For flushing oil from a new system. . .

NOTE: For flushing the first time, we recommend using mineral spirits to flush out the oil. Next, flush again using a solvent that is compatible with the fluid you will be dispensing. However, be sure the mineral spirits is compatible with the material you will be pumping. If it is not compatible, check with your fluid supplier to determine an appropriate solvent for flushing out the light oil.

NOTE: The proportioning pump does not need to to be running to clean oil from the system. Feed pump pressure is adequate to flush the system with solvent.

1.

Place each feed pump intake into a separate 5 gallon grounded pail, containing about 3 gallons

(12 liters) of solvent.

To flush or prime . . .

2.

Be sure both of the fluid shutoff valves (Q1) are open. See Fig. 16.

3.

Operation

Pneumatic Pressure Relief Procedure

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

The system pressure must be manually relieved to prevent the system from starting or spraying accidentally. Fluid under high pressure can be injected through the skin and cause serious injury. To reduce the risk of an injury from injection, splashing fluid, or moving parts, follow the Pressure Relief Procedure if the spray tip/nozzle clogs and whenever you:

D are instructed to relieve the pressure,

D stop spraying,

D check or service any of the system equipment,

D or install or clean the spray tip.

1.

Engage the dispensing valve safety latch.

2.

Shut off the feed pump and proportioning pump air regulators and bleed-type master air valves.

CAUTION

If material is left in the heaters without fluid movement, the material could “cook” and ruin the coating as well as plug the heater. The heaters have a large mass and take several minutes to cool.

10. Ensure pump air pressure and main air valve are closed.

11. If you suspect that the nozzle or hose is completely clogged, or that pressure has not been fully relieved after following the steps above: a.

Remove and clean tip from spray gun.

b.

Direct the gun into a grounded container and slowly trigger the gun.

c.

If system is still plugged, very slowly loosen the fitting at the mix manifold 1/4 turn, allow liquid to run out until pressure is relieved.

d.

Remove and clean or replace plugged component .

e.

Tighten any loosened fittings.

f.

Very slowly loosen the nozzle or hose end coupling and relieve pressure gradually, then loosen completely. Now clear the nozzle or hose.

Handling Plural Component Fluid

3.

If the system has heaters, turn the power off to the heaters 10 minutes prior to the completion of the application.

4.

Flush the system immediately after completion of the application.

5.

Disengage the dispensing valve safety latch.

6.

Hold a metal part of the dispensing valve firmly to the side of a grounded metal pail, and trigger the dispensing valve to relieve pressure.

WARNING

PLURAL COMPONENT FLUID

HAZARD

Be extremely cautious when handling plural component materials and solvents used with them. Some are extremely toxic. See the Toxic Fluid Hazard warnings on page 5. Read and follow the coating and solvent manufacturer’s safety precautions and warnings.

Wear the proper protective clothing, eye protection, gloves, and clean air breathing apparatus as prescribed by the fluid manufacturers recommendations, O.S.H.A. regulations and as approved by

N.O.I.S.H. for the chemicals being used.

7.

Engage the safety latch.

8.

Open the mixer manifold drain valves, having a container ready to catch the drainage. Close the valves immediately.

9.

Use the solvent pump to flush the mixer manifold solvent valves and fluid line(s) to the applicator.

Observe the Pot (Workable) Life Limit

Flush the mixed fluid out of the mixer, dispensing lines and equipment before it hardens. Flush the complete system when necessary to prevent the fluids from hardening in the equipment and hoses. Check the fluid manufacturer’s instructions for fluid shelf life, and flush the entire system before this time is reached. Flush the system with a compatible solvent as explained on page 21.

308986 23

Hydraulic Pressure Relief Procedure

Operation

Check the Hydraulic Fluid

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

To reduce the risk of serious injury, including fluid injection, splashing in the eyes or on the skin, or moving parts, always follow the Pressure Relief Procedure whenever you:

D are instructed to relieve the pressure,

D shut off the pump,

D stop spraying,

D check or service any of the system equipment,

D or install or clean the spray tip/nozzle.

1.

Lock the gun trigger safety.

2.

Shut off power to the feed pumps.

3.

Shut off the hydraulic power supply.

4.

Close the supply line shutoff valve (P), then the return line shutoff valve (R).

5.

Close the gun manifold needle valves. Unlock the gun trigger safety.

6.

Hold a metal part of the gun firmly to the side of a grounded metal pail, and trigger the gun to relieve pressure.

7.

Lock the gun trigger safety.

8.

Open the drain valves (L, required in your system), having a container ready to catch the drainage.

9.

Leave the drain valves open until you are ready to dispense again.

If you suspect that the spray tip/nozzle or hose is completely clogged, or that pressure has not been fully relieved after following the steps above, very slowly loosen the hose end coupling and relieve pressure gradually, then loosen completely. Now clear the tip/nozzle or hose.

Before starting the hydraulic power supply, check the hydraulic fluid level. Add fluid as necessary to fill lines to replace the amount used. Use only Graco approved hydraulic oil. Order Part No. 169236, 5 gallon (19 liter) or 207428, 1 gallon (3.8 liter).

Flush the Pump Before First Use

The pump is tested with lightweight oil, which is left in to protect the pump parts. If the fluid you are using may be contaminated by the oil, flush it out with a compatible solvent. See Flushing on page 22.

Fill Throat Packing Nuts

Keep each displacement pump throat packing nut (JJ) filled with Graco ISO Pump Oil to help prevent fluid from drying on the displacement rod and damaging the pump packings. See Fig. 17.

Verify compatibility of the pump oil with the fluids being used in the pumps. During operation very small amounts of this fluid are dragged past the seals and into the pump.

Fig. 17

24 308986

Check Drainage Bottles and Hoses

Operation

Monitor Material Supply

Monitor system material supply regularly based on system usage.

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

To reduce the risk of serious injury and property damage, regularly check and clean the drain hose and bottle for the automatic pressure relief valve.

If material is allowed to dry in and clog the drain hose, the automatic pressure relief valve may not fully release the fluid pressure if it opens or may cause the drain hose to burst.

Check the drain hose and bottle (38) at the start of each shift, and whenever there is an imbalance of material, to see if the automatic pressure drain valve has released material into the bottles. Clean the hose and bottle as needed. Regularly check the drain hose for cuts, leaks, or bulges and replace damaged components before using the system. See Fig. 18.

CAUTION

Establish a rigid system for monitoring the material supply to prevent the pumps from running dry. A sudden lack of material in one pump may cause many system problems, including air entrapment, spitting of the fluids, fluid “crossovers”, pump damage, downtime, and added system stresses.

CAUTION

Never allow the feed pump or solvent pump containers to run dry. A dry container allows air to be pumped into the system and causes incorrect proportioning. A dry pump will quickly accelerate to a high speed, and may damage itself and the other displacement pump because it causes a pressure rise in the other pump. If a supply container becomes dry, stop the pump immediately, refill the container, and prime the system again. Be sure to eliminate all the air from the system before continuing the application.

NOTE: The pump runaway valve mentioned on page 13 of the Installation section shuts off the pump if the pump speed accelerates quickly.

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

To reduce the risk of serious injury, follow the Pressure Relief Procedure on page 23 whenever you are instructed to relieve the pressure.

Never exceed the maximum air and fluid working pressure of the lowest rated component in your system. See Equipment Misuse Hazard, page 3.

1.

Install full containers of resin and hardener at feed pumps.

Prime System as follows:

1.

Open material valves (W).

Operation

2.

Start feed pumps (B) by opening feed pump air valves (A1,A2). Adjust air regulators (E!,E2) just enough to start pumps operating slowly. Set air pressure to feed pumps at no more than 25% of proportional pressure at fluid outlets Use gauges

(J1) to monitor pressure. Higher pressures may prevent proportioning pump inlet ball checks from seating properly.

3.

Open mix manifold valve (KK). Handle down.

4.

Open drain valves (P) until material flows from both sides. Increase feed pressure up to 100 psi, if needed, to get material to flow.

5.

When material begins to flow through drain valves (P), close valves.

6.

Turn power on to heaters, if used, and wait 5 minutes for heaters to warm up.

7.

Open proportioning pump air valve (A3) and slowly open regulator (E3) to start proportioning pump.

8.

Trigger dispense valve (S), with tip removed, into waste container until material flows smoothly with no air pockets.

9.

Close dispense valve and set safety latch.

10. Place tip on dispense valve.

11. Release trigger safety and spray test pattern.

12. Increase main proportioner pressure and spray test pattern again. Repeat until acceptable pattern is achieved. Set air pressure to proportioning pump (H) to obtain required fluid pressure. Refer to

13. Note pressures while spraying and material temperatures if heaters are used. While triggering dispense valve (S), check fluid outlet pressure gauges (J2) and make note of pressures indicated.

Check the gauges frequently during operation.

Note material temperatures if heaters are used.

These notes will help to analyze any problems that may occur. Change in displacement pump performance will be indicated by change in pressure gauge readings.

NOTE: A quick pressure drop does occur during pump stroke changeover, but should remain steady if the dispense valve is not triggered. Pressure loss in a static state indicates a packing or check valve leak and should be repaired.

14. Flush mixer manifold (N) frequently during day’s operation. Follow Step 11 on page 21.

Operation

Checking Mix Ratio

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

To reduce the risk of serious injury, follow the Pressure Relief Procedure on page 23 whenever you are instructed to relieve the pressure.

NOTE: Since this is a fixed ratio system, you typically do not have to check the mix ratio.

If the mixed fluid does not cure or harden properly, check the ratio of resin to hardener.

1.

Flush the mixer manifold; see Step 11, page 21.

2.

Follow the Pressure Relief Procedure , page 23.

3.

Open the mixer manifold (N), handle (KK) up.

4.

Set the operating pressure for the pumps. See

Steps NO TAG and NO TAG on page NO TAG.

5.

Release the dispensing valve trigger and engage the safety latch.

6.

Close the mixer manifold (N), handle (KK) down.

7.

Open the hardener side drain valve (P2) about three turns. Open the resin side drain valve (P1) about 1 turn. This prevents the pressure from building up on the hardener pump, which would cause the automatic pressure relief valve to open.

8.

Place a grounded metal pail under the drain valves.

9.

Open the mixer manifold.

308986 27

Operation

10. While observing the pump outlet gauges (J2), adjust the resin and hardener drain valves (P1,P2) until the gauges show your normal operating pressure.

NOTE: The pressure must be within 20% of the original spraying pressure to get a usable test.

11. Close the mixer manifold. Put a separate sampling container under each drain valve.

12. Open the mixer manifold to draw a sufficient sample.

13. As you close the mixer manifold, check the pump outlet gauges (J2) again to make sure they are at your normal operating pressure.

14. If the fluid pressure is not within 20% of the normal operating pressure, flush the mixer manifold again and take another sample. If the sample ratio is incorrect, refer to the Troubleshooting chart on page 31. If the ratio is correct, the problem is with other system component.

15. Close the drain valves (P1,P2).

Hydraulic Startup – Prime the Pump

1.

See Fig. 3. Check the hydraulic fluid level before each use, and add fluid as necessary.

2.

Close the supply line shutoff valve (P) and the return line shutoff valve (R).

3.

Start the hydraulic power supply.

4.

Hold a metal part of the gun firmly to the side of a grounded metal pail and hold the trigger open.

5.

Open the return line shutoff valve (R) first, then slowly open the supply line shutoff valve (P).

6.

Run the pump slowly until all air is pushed out and the system is fully primed. Always use the lowest pressure necessary to get the desired results.

Higher pressures cause premature pump wear.

7.

Release the gun trigger and lock the trigger safety.

With adequate hydraulic volume supplied to the motor, the pump will start and stop as you open and close the gun.

28 308986

Operation

9.

Use the fluid pressure gauge (F) and pressurereducing valve (H) to control pump outlet pressure and pump speed. Always use the lowest hydraulic flow and pressure necessary to get the desired results. Higher pressure causes premature pump wear.

CAUTION

Do not allow the pump to run dry. It will quickly accelerate to a high speed, causing damage. If your pump is running too fast, stop it immediately and check the fluid supply. If the container is empty and air has been pumped into the lines, refill the container and prime the pump and the lines, or flush and leave it filled with a compatible solvent. Eliminate all air from the fluid system.

308986 29

Shutdown and Care of the System

WARNING

INJECTION HAZARD

To reduce the risk of serious injury, follow the Pressure Relief Procedure on page 23 whenever you are instructed to relieve the pressure.

System Shutdown

To shut the system down, shut off the air to all pumps, trigger the dispensing valve into a grounded metal waste container. Close the mixer manifold valves.

Flush all the mixed fluid out of the mixer manifold, hoses and dispensing equipment. See page 21. Then follow the Pressure Relief Procedure , page 23.

Pump Inlet Strainer Cleaning

If the fluid pressure from the feed pump to the proportioning pump cannot be maintained on the proportioning pump intake gauge (J1), check and clean the strainer (V). See Fig. 19, page 26.

1.

Relieve all feed pump pressures.

2.

Remove “Y” strainer, clean, and replace.
