Warnings. Graco 332013B, DCM and ADCM Kits | Manualzz




The following warnings are for the setup, use, grounding, maintenance and repair of this equipment. The exclamation point symbol alerts you to a general warning and the hazard symbol refers to procedure-specific risks. When these symbols appear in the body of this manual or on warning labels, refer back to these

Warnings. Product-specific 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. 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. Do not use pail liners unless they are antistatic or conductive.

• Stop operation immediately if static sparking occurs or you feel a shock. Do not use equipment until you identify and correct the problem.

• Keep a working fire extinguisher in the work area.


The DCM and ADCM do not provide 500 VAC isolation through the coupling nuts on the enclosure. The associated apparatus and the field apparatus cable shields must not be connected to the DCM or ADCM coupling nuts. To help prevent fire, explosion, or electric shock, equipment must comply with the following conditions.

• Follow all isolation and grounding instructions. See

Grounding, page 8 .

Static charge may build up on plastic parts during cleaning and could discharge and ignite flammable vapors. To help prevent fire and explosion:

• Clean plastic parts only in a well ventilated area.

• Do not clean with a dry cloth.






This equipment must be grounded. Improper grounding, setup, or usage of the system can cause electric shock.

• Turn off and disconnect power at main switch before disconnecting any cables and before servicing or installing equipment.

• Connect only to grounded power source.

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

• Do not expose to rain. Store indoors.


Intrinsically safe equipment that is installed improperly or connected to non-intrinsically safe equipment will create a hazardous condition and can cause fire, explosion, or electric shock.

Follow local regulations and the following safety requirements.

• Installation should be in accordance with ANSI/ISA RP12.06.01 “Installation of Intrinsically

Safe Systems for Hazardous (Classified) Locations” and the National Electrical Code®


• Installation in Canada should be in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA

C22.1, Part 1, Appendix F.

• For ATEX, install per EN 60079–14 and applicable local and national codes.

• Equipment that comes in contact with intrinsically safe terminals must meet the entity parameter requirements specified in Control Drawing 16M169. See Appendix A in Manual

332013. This includes safety barriers, DC voltage meters, ohmmeters, cables, and connections. Remove the unit from the hazardous area when servicing.

• If a printer, computer, or other electrical component is connected, it must be used in conjunction with a safety barrier.

• Without the safety barrier, the equipment is no longer intrinsically safe and must not be operated in hazardous locations, as defined in article 500 of the National Electrical Code

(USA) or your local electrical code.

• Do not install equipment approved only for non-hazardous location in a hazardous area. See the ID label for the intrinsic safety rating for your model.

• Do not use intrinsically safe equipment with a power supply that has no barrier. Intrinsic safety may be compromised.

• Ground the power supply. A voltage limiting safety barrier must be properly grounded to be effective. For proper grounding, use a 12 gauge minimum ground wire. The barrier’s ground must be within 1 ohm of true earth ground.

• Do not remove any cover until power has been removed.

• Do not substitute system components as this may impair intrinsic safety.






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 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. 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.


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.
