INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

 

GENERAL INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS

1.    The plant must be installed in a dry and frost-free room.

 

2.    A suitable floor drain should be close to the plant.

 

3.    If water hammering can occur, install a water hammer damper, for instance a diaphragm pressure expansion tank that is dimensioned according to the conditions.

 

4.    If the water in the tank can be heated during standstill so that the pressure exceeds the allowable operating pressure of 6 bar, install a pressure release valve.

 

5.    If the inlet water pressure can exceed the allowable operating pressure of 6 bar, provide a pressure reducing valve on the inlet of the plant.

 

6.    N.B.: By use of an SILEX plant a small and limited discharge of very small particles of ion exchange media cannot be excluded. If such a discharge can harm the subsequent installation in any way, a suitable filter must be installed in the outlet line of the SILEX plant.

QUALITY REQUIREMENTS OF THE UNTREATED WATER

The temperature of the water to be demineralized must not exceed 35°C and must not contain iron, manganese, oil, or large quantities of organic matter. Common mains water will normally meet these requirements.

 

THE CONTENTS OF DISSOLVED SALTS IN THE WATER - CONDUCTIVITY

The electronic conductivity meter continuously indicates the conductivity of the demineralized water in µS/cm. The conductivity is a measure for the contents of dissolved solids in the water. The lower the conductivity, the smaller the contents of dissolved solids.

 

        Examples:

        Distilled water                                               7-10  µS/cm

        Demineralized SILEX water                 less than   0.1  µS/cm.

 

INSTALLATION

1.    Place the tank at the installation site and connect with the hose couplings. From in front the inlet is to the left (black nipple) and the outlet to the right (blue nipple).

 

 

2.    Connect the conductivity meter to 12 VAC 50 Hz via the supplied transformer, see the section "Conductivity Meter Type ST 3".

CONDUCTIVITY METER TYPE ST 3

 

  1.     Connect the supplied transformer 230/12 VAC to the conductivity meter by means of the two red spade-shaped plugs. Plug the transformer into a 230 VAC wall socket. If the transformer wire shall be lengthened or shortened, use the supplied additional spade-shaped plugs.

 

  2.     Connect the wire with the two cable clips to each of the two terminals on the measuring cell. Shall the wire be lengthened or shortened, use the additional cable clips mounted on the measuring cell.

 

  3.     The meter is in operation when the green 12 VAC lamp is on. The conductivity of the water is continuously indicated by one of the ten light emitting diodes. A flashing of the diode every two seconds indicates a new measuring and the light stops at the light emitting diode for actual conductivity.

 

  4.     The scale indicates the min. and max. values of the conductivity. For instance if light emitting diode 4 from the left is on, the conductivity of the water is between 1 and 2 µS/cm.

 

  5.     At conductivities under 10 µS/cm the light emitting diodes are yellow. At conductivities over 10 µS/cm the light emitting diodes are red.
