Warnings. Graco 3A4798F, Pro Xp Waterborne Auto Air Spray Gun | 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 symbols refer to procedure-specific risks. When these symbols appear in the body of this manual or on warning labels, refer back to these warnings. Product-spe cific hazard symbols and warnings not covered in this section may appear throughout the body of this manual where applicable.


Flammable fumes, such as solvent and paint fumes, in work area can ignite or explode. Paint or solvent flowing through the equipment can cause static sparking. To help prevent fire, explosion, and electric shock:

Electrostatic equipment must be used only by trained, qualified personnel who understand the require ments of this manual.

• Ground all equipment, personnel, object being sprayed, and conductive objects in or close to spray area. Resistance must not exceed 1 megohm. See Grounding instructions.

• Only use grounded Graco conductive air supply hoses.

• Do not use pail liners unless they are conductive and grounded.

• Stop operation immediately if static sparking occurs or you feel a shock .

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

• Check gun resistance, hose resistance, and electrical grounding daily.

• Use and clean equipment only in well ventilated area.

• Interlock the gun air and fluid supply to prevent operation unless ventilation air flow is above the minimum required value.

• Use cleaning solvents with highest possible flash point when flushing or cleaning equipment.

• Never spray or flush solvent at high pressure.

• To clean the exterior of the equipment, cleaning solvents must have a flash point at least 15°C (59°F) above ambient temperature. Non-ignitable fluids are preferred.

• Always turn the electrostatics off when flushing, cleaning or servicing equipment.

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

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

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

• Keep the spray area clean at all times. Use non-sparking tools to clean residue from the booth and hangers.

• Keep a working fire extinguisher in the work area.

• Use conductive waterborne fluids that meet at least one of the following conditions for non-flammability:

• Material does not sustain burning in accordance with the Standard Test Method for Sustained

Burning of Liquid Mixtures, ASTM D4206.

• Material is classified as non-ignitable or hard to ignite as defined by EN 50176.





Fluid from the equipment, leaks, or ruptured components can splash in the eyes or on skin and cause serious injury.

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

• Tighten all fluid connections before operating the equipment.

• Check hoses, tubes, and couplings daily. Replace worn or damaged parts immediately.


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 Specifications in all equipment manuals.

• Use fluids and solvents that are compatible with equipment wetted parts. See Technical

Specifications in all equipment manuals. Read fluid and solvent manufacturer’s warnings. For complete information about your material, request Safety Data Sheet (SDS) 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. Alterations or modifications may void agency approvals and create safety hazards.

• Make sure all equipment is rated and approved for the environment in which you are using it.

• 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.


Many solvents can degrade plastic parts and cause them to fail, which could cause serious injury or property damage.

• Use only compatible solvents to clean plastic structural or pressure-containing parts.

• See Technical Specifications in all equipment manuals for materials of construction. Consult the solvent manufacturer for information and recommendations about compatibility.


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) to know the specific hazards of the fluids you are using.

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




Wear appropriate protective equipment when in the work area to help prevent serious injury, including eye injury, hearing loss, inhalation of toxic fumes, and burns. This protective equipment includes but is not limited to:

• Protective eyewear, and hearing protection.

• Respirators, protective clothing, and gloves as recommended by the fluid and solvent manufacturer.
