a. This washer is equipped with a power cord which must be plugged into
a 115volt, 60cycle power outlet and will carry a total of 125 watts.
Install a DISCONNECT (power ONOFF) switch of proper size and electrical
rating in the power line at a point where it will be convenient for the
b. The cylinder must revolve toward the operator as he faces the
machine (para 39, item 2).
Lubricate the print washer as described in paragraph 311. The
stuffing box is lubricated with graphite and should not require further
lubrication even though the washer has been in storage for some time.
What is the voltage recommended to safely operate the EK1 Washer?
a. Foot pedal. The foot pedal (figure 31) is used to raise and lower
the cylinder in the tank. To raise the cylinder, push down on the foot
pedal far enough to allow the pedal lock to hold the pedal down. To lower
the cylinder, push down on the foot pedal to release the pedal lock and
allow the pedal to raise slowly.
b. Drain valve. The drain valve (figure 32) is used to empty the tank
after operation (para 311). Turn the valve handle counterclockwise to open
the valve and clockwise to close the valve.
The valve is designed so that only slight pressure on the diaphragm,
inside the valve, is necessary to shut off the flow of water.
Excessive tightening will damage the diaphragm.
