Tank Cleaning Cycle

If there is a lot of abrasive in the tank or the Wazer has been sitting for a long time this mode will loosen up the compacted abrasive by the abrasive pickups and the rear baffle.

  1. Prepare WAZER as you would for cutting (typical startup procedure to the point you are ready to select a Cut File). Make sure the water supply is on and both WAZER and Pump Box are being powered.

  2. Remove any Material and Fastening Screws from the Cut Bed.

  3. Raise the Nozzle Height so that it won’t collide with the Cut Bed.

  4. Select Setup & Maintenance > Maintenance > Abrasive Pickup cleaning on the Control Panel and press Start to begin the Tank Cleaning Cycle.

  5. Allow the Pickup cleaning Cleaning Cycle to finish running.

  6. Select Setup & Maintenance > Maintenance >Used Abr. Collect

  7. Block to the outlet ports of the abrasive jets to re-prime the pickups

  8. Empty the Used Abrasive Buckets if they are relatively full. 

    There will always be some used abrasive left in the tank bottom after tank cleaning is performed.

[CAUTION] Bacteria can build up in the standing water of the tank. Any injuries or cuts, even minor ones, should be treated with caution. If you have an open wound avoid contact with the water or wear gloves that do not expose you to the tank water.
