Cautions on the Use of Polycarbonate Plastic Bowls
Use Only with Compressed Air. Filter and lubricators with polycarbonate plastic bowls are specifically designed for compressed air service, and their use with or injection of certain hazardous fluids in the system (e.g., alcohol or liquified petroleum gas) could be harmful to the plastic bowl or result in a combustible condition or hazardous leakage. Before using with fluid other than air, or for non-industrial applications, or for life support systems, consult CAS.
Use Metal Bowl Guard When Supplied. A metal bowl guard is supplied with all but the smallest bowls, and must always be used to minimize danger from fragmentation in the event of failure of a plastic bowl.
Avoid Harmful Substances. Some compressor oils, chemical cleaners, solvents, paints, and fumes will attack plastic bowls and can cause bowl failure. Do not use with or near these materials. When a bowl becomes dirty , replace the bowl or wipe it with a clean, dry cloth. Immediately replace any plastic bowl which is crazed, cracked, or deteriorated.
