When rotating the control shaft from the "Depressurized" position to the "Pressurized" position, or vise versa, a small amount of solution is
forced out through the two vent holes in the outer body of the metering valve.
This is not a problem. Its suppose to do that. In fact, a Splash
Shield is included with every AllClaveParts Valve and is designed to absorb the drips.
However, there are times you should be suspicious and here is what to do.
If the machine looses pressure
- Check the o-rings and tubing for cracks
- Check for excessive bubbles in the fill tube
- Then make sure that the operating temperature is below 275°F because the solution will start to boil away at 272°F. (Tip: If there are excessive
bubbles in the fill tube, without a pressure leak, this means that the chamber temperature is too high
- Use the Max Register Thermometer (Part #RPT113) to confirm that the temperature is too high and not a valve problem
- If you see fluid being pushed through the vent line then check the o-rings
- If the main reservoir is depleted long before it should be, then check the o-rings
