Thawinq procedures. If decontaminating apparatus has been exposed
to freezing temperatures without havinq been operated, the unit could be
Manually try to rotate water pump drive wheel. If drive wheel does
not rotate freely, unit is frozen.
Proceed to thaw as follows:
Place unit inside shelter where temperature is above freezing.
Position unit on end so that heat exchanger is down, and pump inlet
is pointing up.
Pour several cups of hot, undiluted antifreeze into pump inlet
while trying to rotate drive wheel.
When pump rotates freely, gently try to rotate water pressure regu-
lator valve handle.
If handle does not rotate, continue to pour
hot antifreeze into pump inlet until water pressure regulator
handle is free to turn.
When unit has thawed and is operating, check water pump and plumbing
for leaks caused by freezing.
If decontaminating apparatus is dam-
aged, make appropriate repairs prior to continuing operation.
