SuperTreater Manual
All settings and operation are accessed using the built in touch
screen interface. The following explains the different options and
how to navigate the screens
RUN Screen
This screen displays the operational
information for the controller. If
this screen is not shown, it can be
accessed at anytime by pressing the
RUN button in the lower right corner.
The FLOW RATE is split into two columns. The first column shows the
CURRENT value. The second column shows the SETPOINT value that
is entered on the op settings screen.
Under the CURRENT column, the
FLOW RATE displays the real time
flow rate flowing through the controller. This will match your flow setpoint as the controller targets your desired rate.
Under the SETPOINT column, the FLOW RATE shows the target flow rate as entered
on the op settings screen.
The TOTAL displays how much product has been pumped so far.
The SPEED location shows the current speed of the pump (0-100%). When the Manual/Auto switch is in auto, this value will automatically adjust to hit the desired flow
rate setup on the next screen. When the MANUAL/AUTO switch is in the Manual position, the speed value is adjustable by pressing the “+” or the “-” keys or by pressing
the number. When you press the speed setting box, you can then enter the desired
percent motor speed using the on screen keypad that pops up.
The START/STOP button turns the system on and off. The PUMP OFF lamp will
change depending on the status of your system. When the system is on, “RUNNING”
will display above the status lamp. Alarms will appear on the screen for no flow, auger stopped, and hopper empty situations and will stop the pump if enabled. These
are discussed in the next section, Operational Settings.
Operational Settings Screen
To navigate to the operational settings
screen, press the SETUP button on the
RUN screen.
The FLOW SETPOINT is the flow rate that
the system tries to maintain when the Auto/Manual switch on the main screen is set
to Auto.
Recipes for Flow Setpoint can be saved and
loaded by pressing the buttons in the middle of the screen.
START DELAY can be used if a delay is desired after start is pressed. It should be
set to zero for no delay.
HOPPER EMPTY DELAY determines the
amount of time the hopper sensor becomes
uncovered before the system registers this as a “Hopper Empty” signal.
HOPPER INPUT ENABLE/DISABLE: If enabled, this will put the pump in a stop mode
when the system senses a “Hopper Empty” signal (after designated delay). The system
goes into a hold mode as the pump goes to a zero speed. The system will begin pumping again when the hopper sensor is covered, unless the stop button is pushed on the
run screen. If disabled, the alarm will display on the run screen but the pump will continue to run at the desired flow rate without regard to the hopper sensor.
AUGER INPUT ENABLE/DISABLE: If enabled, it will affect the system just like HOPPER
INPUT, but instead looks to see if the auger RPM is above 10.
ALTERNATOR ALARM ENABLE/DISABLE: If enabled, it will show an alarm on the run
screen if the alternator is not actively charging the system battery and will not if disabled. The alternator alarm is visual only, it does not affect the system operation.
EXTERNAL START ENABLE/DISABLE: If enabled, the operator can hook up an external
button or relay to start the system. However, the system still must be stopped on the
run screen.
Totals Screen
To navigate to the Totals screen,
press the TOTALS button on any of the internal
screens that have this menu shown.
This screen keeps track of several useful totalizers. TOTAL PRODUCT
PUMPED is an end customer resettable
totalizer that can be used to get a
combined total of several batches.
TOTAL HOURS is also an end customer
resettable total. This allows for keeping track of the number of hours the
SuperTreater has been run.
resettable totalizer that counts the
amount of product pumped over the
life of the SuperTreater.
The RETAIL PASSWORD ENTRY gives access to a password protected screen that has
another set of totalizers that can be used by to keep track of product used that is not
accessible by the end user. Contact SureFire to get the password for this screen if it is
a desired feature.
System Settings Screen
To navigate to the system settings screen, press
the SYSTEM SETTINGS button on any of the internal screens that have this menu shown.
The settings on this screen handle some of
the options available on the SuperTreater
Use the UNITS selection to display the
units in OZ or GAL. This button toggles
between OZ and GAL.
PULSES PER GAL is set based upon the
flow meter in your SuperTreater unit.
There are two options for flow meters. Refer to the table below to select the correct
pulses per gal. This number can be calibrated to produce more accurate output if
catch tests are off more than what is acceptable.
PULSES PER REV is a number based upon the gearbox and pulleys of your SuperTreater
unit. This number should be 8.
The UPDATE SPEED gives the user the ability to fine tune the speed at which the automatic control updates. The larger the number the faster the system updates. If the
pump seems to be responding too slowly, then increasing this number will help it respond quicker.
TIME and DATE is not used in this release of the product.
Flow Meter
Pulses per Unit (GAL)
0.3 to 5 GPM
0.13 to 2.6 GPM
Maintenance Screen
To navigate to the Maintenance
screen, press the MAINT. button on any of the internal screens that have this menu shown.
The model code is a number that can be
used by SureFire service people to
quickly gather the pertinent information
about the unit.
Your SureFire service technician may ask
you for some of the information on this
screen if you are having problems.
If any of the ALARMS lamps are red, call
your SureFire representative for help.
SYSTEM VOLTAGE will display the voltage seen by the control box. AUGER
RPM will display calculated RPM of the auger based off of the sensor reading the pulley
on the gearbox and the PULSES PER REV number.
RUN CONDITIONS displays the conditions that must be met to run the system in auto.
If green while the system is on, it means that this condition is okay. “Disabled” will appear next to them if they are not enabled.
POWER TO ALT: Shows if the excite wire to the alternator is energized (Green=ON).
EXT START: Shows if the External Start input is active (Green=ON).
HOPPER: Shows if the hopper sensor is covered or not (Green=Covered or Hopper Full).
ALT Signal: Shows if the alternator is charging the system (Green = Charging).
Display LEDs
The LEDs on the front of the controller are an quick, easy
way to troubleshoot your SuperTreater system.
The POWER indicator should be green when the controller
has power and is turned on.
S1 lights up/flashes yellow as the controller is receiving
pulses from the flow meter.
S2 blinks on and off yellow as the RPM sensor is pulsing,
indicating auger movement. If the auger stops in the right
position, it can stay lit up when not rotating.
MODE, S3, and S4 are not used on this system.
The Tank 1/Tank 2 valve can be used to plumb in a second
tank if desired and select between two products. Putting the
handle between the two will shut of flow from either tank
The Run/Rinse valve selects between the Tank1/Tank2 input or
the supplied Rinse tank. Putting the handle between the two
shuts off flow from both the Rinse tank and the product tank.
The SuperTreater system is equipped with a bypass
to loop flow back to the inlet of the pump for priming
and aiding in some lower flow rate situations.
The needle valve allows the user to fine tune the
amount bypassed (0=No Bypass, 11=Full Bypass)
The quarter turn valve allows for quick open/
close flow to the needle valve.
Touch screen not on:
• Check wiring, and check the inline fuse in the supplied power cable. Do not use a
fuse larger than 25 Amps.
• Make sure the power button is getting pressed on the controller (should not need to
be held in for more than 1/2 second).
No Flow Rate:
• The pump will self prime, but sometimes it takes a little time for the system to get
primed. Until product is flowing through the flow meter, it will read no flow. To help
with priming do the following
a. Set the MANUAL/AUTO switch to MANUAL
b. Press the SPEED value and type 100 into the keypad and press enter.
c. Press the START/STOP to turn on the pump. Now the pump will run continuously and at full speed.
d. If the pump is still not priming, use the bypass to establish flow back through
the pump and slowly close the bypass to force product through the rest of the
e. Once you know product is moving through the system press the START/STOP
button to shut the system off, and press the MANUAL/AUTO switch to switch
back to AUTO.
• Check the valve positions to make sure product is getting to the pump.
Pump will not Run:
• Check the fuse.
• Check that the flow setpoint does not equal 0.
• Check if you are getting a No Flow alarm.
• Check to see what alarms are enabled on the Op Settings screen and if the alarm is
active (Auger or Hopper). If the Start/Stop button is green, the pump isn’t running,
and the system is in auto, chances are that the auger isn’t running or the hopper
sensor isn’t covered.
• Check the connections to the EPD (small black rectangle next to pump) and from the
EPD to the pump.
SuperTreater Quick-Start
Flow Units: Set the desired unit
Update Speed: The system default is
5. Increasing the number makes the system react
quicker, decreasing slows the systems reaction
down. If the system is oscillating (over and under
shooting, not keeping on target) adjust the number
Pulses Per Gal: Can be adjusted to fine tune flow
accuracy, default setting for the .13-2.6 and the .35 GPM meter is 3000.
Pulses Per Rev: Should be set at 8
Flow Setpoint: Set the desired Flow
Start Delay: The system starts set number seconds
of delay after start is pushed.
Hopper Delay: How long the hopper sensor must
be uncovered to cause an alarm.
Hopper Input/Auger Input: Enabling these sets the
pump speed to 0 when the auger stops or the hopper sensor is in alarm state. The system will automatically start pumping again when the inputs are
in an “Okay” state.
AUTO Operation: Make sure the Manual/Auto
Switch is in Auto (green). Press Start/Stop and the
system will run at the desired flow-rate setpoint. If
auger and hopper inputs are enabled (see Op Settings screen), the system will remain in a started
state but speed will get set to 0% if the auger stops
turning or the hopper sensor becomes uncovered.
As the auger begins to rotate and the hopper sensor is covered, the pump will start again and ramp
up to targeted flow rate. Pressing the Start/Stop
button again will stop the pump.
MANUAL Operation: This allows the operator to run
the pump at a constant speed, independent of flow. Set the Manual/Auto switch to Manual
(red). Press Start/Stop and press the +/- keys or press and enter a percentage to change
pump speed. Flow Rate will be displayed in blue. Press Start/Stop again to stop.
