Video Transcript:

hello this brief video will help you to
00:04
get your new easy flow equipment set up
00:06
and operating first take a moment and
00:09
make sure that you have all the
00:10
components of your system
00:11
the drum pumps you’ll have two of these
00:14
one each for the a and the B chemical
00:17
the heated hoses one blue for the b1 red
00:21
for the a the dispensing gun with the
00:25
cartridge the electronic controller if
00:29
you have a streamer you will not have a
00:31
controller the air hose assembly the gun
00:38
holder tray the hose hanger and the
00:45
maintenance pack a small package of a
00:47
rings and other spare parts next locate
00:51
the chemical drums where you want them
00:54
open the bungs of each drum take the
01:00
pumps out of their packaging you’ll have
01:02
two of these you will not need the
01:04
grounding lug that comes with a pump
01:07
press the pump filter on to the bottom
01:10
of each pump this is the pump adapter
01:18
attach the pump adapters to the outputs
01:20
of each pump wrap the threads of both
01:24
sides in teflon tape first
01:37
now put the adapter into the pump on the
01:44
pump output and tighten it down now
01:49
you’re ready to wet out the pumps drop
01:51
one into the a drum and one into the B
01:54
drum once a pump has touched one of the
01:57
chemicals it can never be allowed to
01:58
touch the other one next attach the
02:00
hoses to the pumps make sure to attach
02:03
the red a hose to the pump in the a drum
02:05
and the blue B hose to the pump and the
02:07
B drum you attach the hose to the
02:10
adapter like this and then tighten it
02:19
down now you can stretch out the hoses
02:21
try to get them out full length of
02:24
course the pump is going to be in the
02:26
drum we’re doing a representation here
02:28
to show you what to do
02:29
you’ll probably be stretching the hoses
02:31
out on the floor they’re 20 feet long
02:33
get them out full length then take the
02:37
air hose assembly attach the two short
02:40
hoses to the drum pumps red for a blue
02:44
for B now you’ve got the air hoses
02:52
attached to the drum pumps take the
02:55
longest air hose and stretch it out
02:57
between the two chemical hoses a and B
03:01
now take the dispensing gun attach the
03:05
air hose the long air hose to the back
03:09
of the gun
03:15
attach the red a hose to the left side
03:19
of the gun and attach the blue B hose to
03:29
the right side of the gun you don’t need
03:33
teflon tape for these connections now
03:39
with a wrench you’ll tighten the swivel
03:41
fittings of the hose to the 45-degree
03:43
connections now you can connect the
03:45
manifold to your compressed air source
03:47
if possible feed the air a little at a
03:50
time or start with a lower air pressure
03:52
and work it up gradually
03:53
if you connect it directly to a hundred
03:55
psi if the pumps will cavitate or jump
03:58
up and down once the system is
04:00
pressurized with a hundred pounds per
04:03
square inch or 100 psi of compressed air
04:05
input you will have 200 psi of fluid
04:08
pressure in the hoses because the pumps
04:10
are 2 to 1 now you can bleed the air out
04:12
of the hoses if there is air in the
04:14
hoses when the heat is turned on you
04:16
will risk burning out the heaters it’s a
04:18
good idea to wear gloves for this part
04:20
so turn both of the valves off on the
04:24
gun and remove one of the filter nuts
04:37
aim the gun at a waste container and
04:40
open the valve you’ll get a hiss of air
04:49
then some fluid and finally a steady
04:51
pulsing stream of chemical like this
04:59
then close that valve replace the filter
05:02
nut and do the same thing on the other
05:06
side take the filter net out aim at a
05:22
waste container
05:27
and try not to make a mess when you get
05:34
a good flow you turn the valve off
05:38
replace the filter nut and tighten it
05:44
you’re almost done
05:46
now find the place on the wall that you
05:49
want to attach the controller if you
05:51
have a streamer system you won’t have a
05:53
controller and this step is not
05:54
necessary once the controller is mounted
05:57
on the wall you can plug it into its
05:59
power source
06:00
either 110 volts or in this case 220
06:03
volts don’t turn the power switch on yet
06:12
then attach the heater cables to the
06:17
heaters the blue cable of course goes to
06:21
the blue hose push it in and screw it
06:28
tight
06:30
and the red cable goes to the red hose
06:35
push it in and screw it tight now you
06:46
can turn on the power at the controller
06:49
the Gen 4 system will prompt you to make
06:53
sure that the pumps are activated this
06:55
means that the compressed air is going
06:57
to the pumps and there’s full pressure
06:58
to the hoses once you’re sure of this
07:00
press yes and the system will start to
07:04
heat chemical in the hoses once the
07:07
temperatures have gotten close to their
07:09
proper level aim the gun at a waste
07:12
container with the valves in the on
07:13
position and pull the trigger when you
07:16
pull the trigger don’t pull it back
07:17
halfway or be nervous about it just pull
07:19
it all the way back now you’re shooting
07:22
fall be sure to wipe the tip after every
07:27
shot now you’ll need to locate a place
07:31
to mount your poly film as we’ve done
07:33
here and a place for your gun holder as
07:36
we have here now you’re ready to start
07:38
