INSTALLATION
ColPaC® Master Chilling Units
INSTALLATION
Remove all packing material inside the ColPaC chilling chamber. It is important to remove all loose pieces of paper and other
packing material, which might otherwise plug the drain! Make certain that the drain valve is closed.
Check the voltage rating on the serial plate which is located on the back of the unit. Plug the unit into properly grounded
outlet/power source. Do not attempt to use Direct Current (D.C.). Follow the procedures indicated in the "Precautionary
Instructions." Do not attempt to use the unit if it is not properly grounded.
Explanation of Symbols on Equipment
Attention: See accompanying documentation
Type B Equipment: An adequate degree of protection against electric shock is provided, particularly
regarding allowable leakage currents and reliability of protective earth connection.

ColPaC® Master Chilling Units
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PATIENT CARE AND COMFORT
1. Know the cooling characteristics of the ColPaC.
2. Exercise extreme care when applying the ColPaC.
3. Know your patient: Use extreme care when applying ColPaCs to areas where the patient may have loss of feeling.
4. Always instruct the patient to inform you if the ColPaC is too cold.
5. Remove ColPaC from freezer and always place a hand towel between the skin and the ColPaC. A warm, damp towel reduces the
initial shock of the cold application. Apply to area being treated.
6. Use care and judgment when applying ColPaCs to infants and elderly. Constantly check the temperature of the ColPaCs.
7. Exercise extreme caution when applying ColPaCs to patients with thin skin or to "bony" areas: shoulders, elbows, knees, etc.
8. DO NOT use the ColPaC in the presence of poor circulation or open wounds.
9. Constantly monitor the ColPaC application to insure that the patient’s skin is not being irritated by the cold.
10. Tolerance of cold, like tolerance of heat, will vary from patient to patient.
11. DO NOT attempt to use the ColPaC as a hot pack. No hot water. No microwave. Use only as cold therapy.
12. During treatment, frequently check the condition of the patient and the area being treated.
13. Patient should not sit, lie or sleep on the ColPaC.
14. Treatment time should not exceed 30 minutes.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ColPaC® Master Chilling Units
GENERAL INFORMATION
Listen carefully after connecting the unit to the electrical power to make sure the compressor goes into operation immediately. A light frost
covering should form on the dividers in the chilling chamber. Insert the individual ColPaCs between the dividers in the chilling chamber and
close the lid.
The initial ColPaC chilling, starting from room temperature, will require several hours. The time needed to re-chill the ColPaC after use on a
patient will depend on the length of time in use with the patient and the time out of the unit. Normally a short time is required for
rechilling your ColPaCs.
Note: While in operation, the top of the unit will become warm because of a specially designed heating system installed under the top rim.
This is to eliminate condensation of moisture around the top of the unit.
Care of ColPaCs
Always return the ColPaC to the chilling chamber after each treatment where it is kept chilled, clean and ready for immediate use. The
ColPaC may be cleaned by scrubbing it with soap and water. It is best not to fold the ColPaC for storage. If the outside plastic cover of the
ColPaC should become torn or cut, minor repairs may be made with plastic or vinyl tape. Clean the surface carefully and apply tape at room
temperature. Always replace ColPaCs when the plastic covering becomes damaged beyond repair. Original ColPaCs may be ordered from
an authorized Chattanooga Group dealer.
The temperature of the ColPaC, when chilled, is approximately 10° F to 21° F (-6° C to -12° C). Be familiar with the cooling characteristics
of the ColPaC.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ColPaC® Master Chilling Units
GENERAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The ColPaC Master Chilling Unit is simple and easy to operate. The thermostat controls the temperature of the chilling
chamber. It is located in the rear of the unit, behind the removable panel. The refrigeration system of the ColPaC Master
Chilling Unit has been adjusted, tested and calibrated to chill the ColPaCs to a temperature between 10° F to 21° F (-6° C to
-12° C). Extensive clinical testing and observation have shown this to be the optimum temperature range. It is recommended
that this adjustment not be altered until the ColPaC unit and the ColPacs have been used for some time, and then only if
adjustment of the chilling temperature is absolutely necessary. A slight adjustment can be made by removing the rear panel
and turning the adjustment knob on the thermostat. To lower the temperature (colder), the knob should be turned clockwise.
To raise the temperature (warmer), the knob should be turned slightly counter-clockwise.
CAUTION: The thermostat is extremely sensitive and the slightest adjustment will alter the temperature several degrees.
The temperature of the chilling chamber should be checked with a thermometer after every adjustment, before using
the ColPaCs.
The ColPaC Master Chilling Unit operates through the use of a hydraulic capillary type thermostat and can be left connected
to the power source, providing a ready supply of chilled ColPaCs. Locate the unit away from humid areas to avoid excessive
frost build-up on the refrigeration coils.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ColPaC® Master Chilling Units
GENERAL OPERATING RULES
1. Always keep the ColPaCs in the chilling chamber of the unit when not in use. This keeps the packs clean, chilled, and
ready for use, and prevents pack damage.
2. Never place a damaged ColPaC into the chilling chamber of the unit.
3. Check for ice/frost build-up daily and defrost unit when ColPaCs become crowded in chamber.
4. Never adjust the thermostat too high or too low. See caution page 7.
5. Always replace ColPaCs when the plastic covering becomes damaged beyond repair or when ColPaC becomes firm or
hard and not moldable around the area being treated. Minor repairs may be made with plastic or vinyl tape.
6. If the unit is to be left unattended for an extended period of time, unplug and follow the defrosting procedures found on
page 13 in the "Maintenance" section of this manual.
7. Always use factory authorized replacement parts.
8. Always clean and sterilize ColPaCs, which are exposed to contamination. Do not sterilize ColPaCs with boiling water.
Gas sterilizing is not recommended. Alcohol or similar substance may be used to decontaminate the packs. If any
contamination is suspected, destroy the ColPaCs.

MAINTENANCE
ColPaC® Master Chilling Units
CARE OF UNIT
The ColPaC Master Chilling Unit is equipped with a hydraulic capillary type thermostat in order to maintain the proper ColPaC temperature
evenly in the chilling chamber. The unit may be left connected to the electrical outlet, providing a ready supply of chilled ColPaCs.
Periodically, the accumulated frost in the chilling chamber will build up to a point where the ColPaCs are crowded and insertion or
removal of the packs becomes difficult. The units should be defrosted when this occurs and the inside of the tank wiped dry with a clean
towel or cloth.
DEFROSTING UNIT
1. Disconnect the unit from its power source.
2. Raise the chamber lid and remove ColPaCs. Leave lid open to speed defrosting. A small amount of warm water may be poured into
the unit to speed defrosting.
3. Attach extension drain hose to the valve, located beneath chilling chamber, behind rear access panel.
4. Open bottom drain valve.
5. Allow unit to defrost completely. All excess water must be removed from the chilling chamber before the unit is started again.
6. Close bottom drain valve and detach extension drain hose.
7. Plug unit back into the power source.
8. Clean and return ColPaCs to the chilling chamber.
9. Close chamber lid - chilling sequence begins again.
Dust and lint will accumulate on the condenser fins of the refrigeration unit. This must be removed periodically to ensure highest
efficiency. The condenser may be reached by removing the rear access panel. Always disconnect power before cleaning the condenser.
