PROCEDURE FOR INSTALLATION
1. Position the Model 8000 units according to the preceding
the units into position with fiberglass tape before
installing the steel banding.
the "rack" that comes with the steel banding so
that the words " This Side Up" are facing you.
Insert the end of the rack into the screw housing and
turn the screw just enough to engage the rack.
the end of the steel band toward the underside to form a
hook. Insert this into the band slot in the housing.
the band snugly around the units.
a second bend [hook] 1" past the band slot in the
rack. Secure the band ends behind the units.
the hook into the band slot in the rack and flatten it to
form the clamp. Any excess band must be folded back under
the unit, or can be trimmed off. Tighten the screw with a
screwdriver to the desired tension.
check the units to make sure they are firmly secured to
the pipe before removing the tape.
8000 sets are heavy and can cause injury or damage if
dropped. Before clamping them into place with the steel
bands, secure the sets in place with fiberglass strapping
direction the fluid flows through the pipe on which the
units are installed makes no difference.
results when placing the Model 8000 to treat a particular
area or appliance, place the units at least 8" to 12"
upstream (before) the area or appliance to be treated.
place the Model 8000 close to an electrical power line,
or electrical equipment capable of generating strong
electrical fields, such as a welder or large electrical
motor. This can reduce the unit's effectiveness.
maximum effectiveness magnetic fluid conditioning
requires a smooth, calm, flow of fluid through the
magnetic field. A partial of the treatment may even be
triggered by turbulence. Therefore, always place the
Model 8000 a minimum of 24"downstream (after) any
pump or other turbulence-causing device.
the Model 8000 only on non-ferrous (PVC, plastic,
copper,or stainless steel) pipe or tubing--not on steel
or iron pipe. Don't place it on any pipe to which the
magnets stick. The penetration of the magnetic field
through iron or steel (except for stainless steel) pipe
is minimal. In effect, the magnetic field travels along
the exterior of such pipes preventing it from reaching
the fluid. In such cases, replace and 18" to 24"
section of steel pipe with either copper or PVC pipe, and
then install the Model 8000 on that section.
For a few
weeks after installing the Model 8000 you may notice and
increase in water turbidity (cloudiness). This is because
scale is being removed from the system. During this
stabilization period, carefully monitor filters, tanks,
and sumps each week, and drain or clean them as needed.
