*WARNING* Before installing any Solberg STS unit, it is essential that all packaging materials be removed properly, prior to start up, to avoid risk of contamination.   

1.    Installation.   

A. All STS units are designed in a “Straight Thru” pipe configuration.   

B. Direction of flow is typically from the outside of inner tube assembly to the inside of tube assembly to outlet of casting.   

C. Ensure that pipe/flange connections are adequately sealed so no leaks are present.   

D. Mounting orientation is casting on top and bucket below so liquid can drain to bottom of bucket for removal.     

2.    Removing Bucket. 

*WARNING* System must be off and canister must be relieved of vacuum before opening.  Proper personal protection equipment must be worn when servicing canister.  Failure to comply with these instructions could result in implosion or personal injury.

B. Loosen T-Bolt clamps or release the torsion clips. 

C. Remove clear bucket from casting.   

3.    Removing Tube Assembly for service/maintenance.

B. Tube assembly can be cleaned from dirt particulate for better flow results. 

*WARNING* Failure to comply with these instructions may result in system contamination. 

4.    Securing Tube Assembly. 

A. Insert tube assembly over extruded ring within casting. 

B. Secure high tension clamp over tube assembly and tighten down on extruded ring within casting.  Note: Do NOT over tighten! 

*WARNING* Defective installation may cause system contamination.  Use only genuine Solberg replacement parts.   

Section D 


1.    Always check replacement o-rings/gaskets to insure they are seated uniformly along the casting flange during installation.  If o-rings/gaskets do not seat properly or are damaged in some manner, contact Solberg Manufacturing, Inc. immediately. 

2.    Always check inlets/outlets of casting during service for heavy particulate buildup or collection. 

3.    Operate only when a proper seal exist.
