INSTALLATION
Dimensions of the Filling Machine
Weight 31kg, height 760mm, width 270mm, and depth 255mm. It is recommended
that lifting and positioning of this machine is a two person operation.
Positioning the Filling Machine
The Filling Machine must be operated on a firm, stable and level surface. The
adjustable feet fitted to the Filling Machine should be used to ensure that the machine
is level before use.
The Pneumatic Circuit
The pneumatic intake coupling is found on the lower left side of the Filling Machine.
Air supply pressure to the Filling Machine should be within the range of 7-10 BAR it is
suggested that the pneumatic circuit, which supplies the Filling Machine, contains a
valve that can be used to isolate the Filling Machine during periods of non-operation.
Draining and inspection of the pneumatic circuit should be undertaken at regular
intervals. Periodic lubrication of the pneumatic piston will ensure continual smooth
operation as laid out in the Trouble Shooting Guide.
The correct operational pressure for the Filling Machine is 6.5-7.5 BAR at the
Pressure Gauge on the left side of the Filling Machine. In order to adjust the Filling
Machine operating pressure use the Pressure Control Valve by pulling the knob
outwards and turning it clockwise to increase the operating pressure or anti-clockwise
to decrease the operating pressure.
Cleaning
Ensure that the Filling Machine is kept clean, the Piston and Filling Cup should be
washed with a suitable solvent following each filling operation.
NB. Do not soak the components in solvent for extended periods, e.g. overnight.
Inspection and Maintenance
Regular inspection of the condition of the components listed below will ensure
effective operation of the filling equipment.
 Air feed lines
 The Piston
 The Filling Cup orifice
The Filling Cup orifice should be checked to ensure that it is clean and contains no
obstructions before each filling operation.

HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICES

VERY IMPORTANT
Do not charge the CUSTOM CAN more than

Ensure maximum air pressure is not exceeded, 10 BAR.

Avoid contact with moving parts as risk of injury/entrapment.

Point can/cup assembly away from the body when attaching or detaching.

Do not insert any objects into or damage the aerosol valve in any way.

Keep labels legible.

Wear eye protection and other personal protective equipment where


appropriate.

NOTE
 All moving parts are enclosed in order to protect the operator.
 Exposure of operatives to sharp edges has been avoided by careful design and
manufacture.
 Any abnormal interruption in the air supply to the Filling Machine will cause the
machine to shut down automatically.
 Should any problem occur during the filling process slowly opening the door will
stop the filling operation and the Filling Platform will withdraw to its starting
position.
 Door must be closed or operation is terminated.

a Custom Can.

SAFETY NOTICE
POINT THE FILLING CUP/AEROSOL ASSEMBLY AWAY
FROM THE BODY DURING USE.
U-POL RECOMMENDS THAT OPERATIVES WEAR EYE
PROTECTION DURING THIS OPERATION.

2. Place this assembly onto a firm and even surface, and pour
100ml of mixed paint into the attached Filling Cup.

3. Place the Custom Can and attached filled cup onto the Filling
Platform, ensuring unit is pushed firmly home into the clip.

4. Locate the Piston and tip in position, a click will occur once the
Piston is correctly in place.

5. Check that the Piston, Filling Cup and Custom Can are aligned vertically.
6. Close the Front Door and check that the Filling Machine has reached minimum
filling pressure (6.5 BAR) by looking at the Pressure Gauge.

7. Press the operation button - The Filling Machine lifts the Custom
Can assembly, thus charging the aerosol. Once the filling operation
is complete the Filling Machine cuts off pressure automatically and
the Filling Platform descends to its starting position.

SAFETY NOTICE
DO NOT CHARGE THE CUSTOM CAN
MORE THAN ONCE.

8. Open the Front Door, then remove the Custom Can and attached Filling Cup (now
empty).

USER INSTRUCTIONS /
TROUBLE-SHOOTING GUIDE
a) Aerosol will not fill:
- Check air pressure, pressure required 6.5 to 7.5 BAR, max drop off 1 bar during
filling.
- Does machine need lubricating, disconnect air supply, squirt oil into air fitment, run
machine for 5 cycles.
- Check paint is not too thick.
- Check cup orifice is not damaged or blocked.
b) Paint comes past the piston or the piston jams in the cup on the
upward/downward cycle.
- Check your tip for damage, your tip should look like the one on the left, if your tip
looks like the one on the right, replace the tip!

- Please note, use virgin cans only, even a single shot of air will partially fill the custom
can, if charged again excessive pressures could lead to poor spray performance and
ultimately in failure of the can structure.
c) When the filling cycle is finished, excessive paint residue remains in the cup:
- Check height setting of cut out switch trigger and the upright bolt on the middle
cross-member. The height should be approximately 75mm.
d) Cycle will not complete, the machine stops at top of cycle:
- Check height setting of cut out switch trigger and the upright bolt at rear of middle
cross-member. The height should be approximately 75mm.
- Do not complete more than 5 filling cycles without cleaning the piston and cup, this
may lead to jamming of the machine, this will show itself as a popping/banging at the
end of the cycle.

CUSTOM CAN CUP REFURBISHMENT


Use the Custom Can Refurbishment Accessory Kit (CCRFBKA) to transform worn
cups (as shown below) into brand new units.

1. Remove and discard all 8 used studs with the tool provided.
2. Remove base and ring and replace with new base and ring supplied in the
accessory kit.
3. Re-tighten firmly with the 8 new screws provided.

NOTE: The spacer plate should be inserted under the aerosol if the clearance gaps allows for
this. This will ensure optimal performance of filling system for variable height of aerosol cans.

MACHINE ADJUSTMENT
FOR NEW STYLE CUP
(only to be used with plastic piston tip marked M)
Adjust height of Filling Cup Positioning Bar by loosening the 30 mm lock nut, then,
turn the larger of the two nuts ante clockwise until there is sufficient gap to insert the
gauge (supplied) between the bar and the base plate. Finally re-adjust the lock nuts to
secure.
All adjustments should be possible without the need for spanners; however the nuts
may be seized because of paint on threads, cleaning the paint off should cure this
problem.
