Protective clothing and equipment must be worn. A heavy-duty rubber apron,
rubber gloves, safety splash goggles, respirator and/or face shield are
required when potential exists for contact with wastewater or contaminated
surfaces. Wastewater and surfaces may be contaminated with pathogenic
microorganisms, bacteria or viruses, which present a risk of serious illness or
death to personnel. Refer to cleaning and sanitizing procedures in WP 0018
The primary shutoff must be serviced when there is evidence that the mechanism is not shutting off tank
loading completely when the tank is full. In that case, moisture will escape through the upper air hose into
the moisture trap where it will collect. Whenever the amount of liquid drained from the moisture trap after
tank loading exceeds approximately one cup, the primary shutoff must be serviced. To service the primary
shutoff proceed as follows:
1. Ensure tank is at atmospheric pressure, isolation valve is open and pressure gage reads 0.
2. Remove the nut on the handle linkage (figure 1, item 1), and disconnect linkage.
3. Loosen hose clamp (figure 1, item 2) on upper air hose (figure 1, item 3) and disconnect it from the
isolation valve (figure 1, item 4).
