Warnings. Graco 3A0237R, Heated Hoses and Applicator Kits | Manualzz



The following warnings are for the setup, use, grounding, maintenance, and repair of this equipment. The exclama tion point symbol alerts you to a general warning and the hazard symbol refers to procedure-specific risk. Refer back to these warnings. Additional, product-specific warnings may be found throughout the body of this manual where applicable.



The hoses must be grounded. Improper grounding, set-up or usage of the hoses can cause electric shock.

• Turn off and disconnect power before disconnecting before installing or servicing hoses.

• Connect to grounded power source.

• All electrical wiring must be done by a qualified electrician and comply with all local codes and regulations.

• Never cut or puncture a hose cover.

• Do not expose to rain. Store indoors.


High-pressure fluid from hose leaks, or ruptured components will pierce skin. This may look like just a cut, but it is a serious injury that can result in amputation. Get immediate surgical treatment.

• Inspect hose before each use for cuts, bulges, kinks or any other damage.

• Replace hoses proactively at regular intervals based on your operating conditions.

• Replace damaged hose immediately.

• Tighten all fluid connections before operating the equipment.

• Keep clear of leaks.

• Do not stop or deflect leaks with your hand, body, glove, or rag.

• Never exceed hose Maximum Pressure or Temperature ratings.

• Only use chemicals that are compatible with wetted parts. See Technical Data in this manual.

Read MSDSs and fluid and solvent manufacturer’s recommendations.

• Follow the Pressure Relief Procedure when you stop spraying and before cleaning, checking, or servicing equipment.


Fluids subjected to heat in confined spaces, including hoses, can create a rapid rise in pressure due to the thermal expansion. Over-pressurization can result in equipment rupture and serious injury.

• Open a valve to relieve the fluid expansion during heating.

• Replace hoses proactively at regular intervals based on your operating conditions.


Equipment surfaces and fluid that’s heated can become very hot during operation. To avoid severe burns:

• Do not touch hot fluid or equipment.

Toxic fluids or fumes can cause serious injury or death if splashed in the eyes or on skin, inhaled or swallowed.

• Read Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for handling instructions and to know the specific hazards of the fluids you are using, including the effects of long-term exposure.

• When spraying, servicing equipment, or when in the work area, always keep work area well ventilated and always wear appropriate personal protective equipment. See Personal Protective Equipment warnings in this manual.

• Store hazardous fluid in approved containers, and dispose of it according to applicable guidelines.


Flammable fumes, such as solvent and paint fumes, in work area can ignite or explode. To help prevent fire and explosion:

• Use equipment only in well ventilated area.

• Eliminate all ignition sources; such as pilot lights, cigarettes, portable electric lamps, and plastic drop cloths (potential static arc).

• Keep work area free of debris, including solvent, rags and gasoline.

• Do not plug or unplug power cords, or turn power or light switches on or off when flammable fumes are present.

• Ground all equipment in the work area. See Grounding instructions.

• Use only grounded hoses.

• Hold gun firmly to side of grounded pail when triggering into pail.

• If there is static sparking or you feel a shock, stop operation immediately.

Do not use equipment until you identify and correct the problem.

• Keep a working fire extinguisher in the work area.


Misuse can cause death or serious injury.

• Do not operate the unit when fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

• Do not exceed the maximum working pressure or temperature rating of the lowest rated system component. See Technical Data in all equipment manuals.

• Use fluids and solvents that are compatible with equipment wetted parts. See Technical Data in all equipment manuals. Read fluid and solvent manufacturer’s warnings. For complete information about your material, request MSDS from distributor or retailer.

• Do not leave the work area while equipment is energized or under pressure. Turn off all equipment and follow the Pressure Relief Procedure when equipment is not in use.

• Check equipment daily. Repair or replace worn or damaged parts immediately with genuine manufacturer’s replacement parts only.

• Do not alter or modify equipment.

• Use equipment only for its intended purpose. Call your distributor for information.

• Route hoses and cables away from traffic areas, sharp edges, moving parts, and hot surfaces.

• Do not kink or over bend hoses or use hoses to pull equipment.

• Keep children and animals away from work area.

• Comply with all applicable safety regulations.
