Low Used Abrasive Collection Rate

After a Cut you may notice that the amount of Used Abrasive collected in the Used Abrasive Buckets is lower than you would expect. It may be the case that after a Cut, there isn’t any Used Abrasive in the Buckets. This is not normal behavior; there are some things you can do to help improve the Used Abrasive collection of your WAZER.

Check: Is there an excess of Used Abrasive built up in the Tank? Reach your hand in around
the Cut Bed and feel if there is a pile of Used Abrasive filling the Tank.

Root Cause: If you allow too much Used Abrasive to build up in the Tank, the Filters that suction up Used Abrasive in the corners of the Tank can become clogged or packed too tight.

Corrective Action: Run a few extra Tank Cleaning cycles by following the instructions in Maintenance > Maintenance Procedures > Tank Cleaning Cycle.

Check: Is the flow rate of the Used Abrasive Grommets low? Select Setup & Maintenance > Maintenance > Used Abr. Collect on the Control Panel. Remove the Front Tank Cover and find the Used Abrasive Grommets on the right and left sides of the WAZER. How strong are the water streams flowing from these Grommets?

Root Cause: If the flow is weak, there is likely an air bubble or abrasive clogging the Filtration System. Once you clear out the Filtration System it should perform efficiently.

Corrective Action: Follow the procedure in Maintenance > Maintenance Procedures > Cleaning the Filtration System to clear the Filtration System. Once the System is clear, follow Maintenance > Maintenance Procedures > Tank Cleaning Cycle to collect any Used Abrasive you may have missed while the Filtration System was clogged.
