IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING FOR HAMACH URS 600 SOLVENT RECYCLING UNIT
Article Numbers 000821 and 000822

URS 600 units are intended for professional use. They are often used in areas where hazardous substances are handled, such as paints, varnishes and solvents. Consequently, there are safety risks associated with the unit and its surroundings, for which you need to take suitable measures.

We have found that the URS 600 units are not always installed, used and/or maintained according to the operation and maintenance documents provided with the URS 600 unit and in compliance with applicable directives. That can lead to a RISK OF EXPLOSION.

The Dutch Inspectorate SZW, Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment has instructed to stop using this product with immediate effect, until further notice.

If the unit is already in service, proceed as follows:

  • a) As a precaution, always stop the URS 600 unit by pressing the Off button. Wait until the URS 600 unit has fully cooled down, as indicated by the FAN lamp no longer being lit, so that you can safely open the outer lid (safety lid) and the inner lid of the URS 600 unit and remove your products.
  • b) Immediately ventilate the room where the URS 600 unit is located in order to dissipate escaped solvent vapours as quickly as possible. Check the room for the presence of any other potentially explosive vapours and eliminate them.

NEVER REMOVE THE POSSIBLE PRESENT PLUG FROM THE SOCKET WHILE THE UNIT IS STILL OPERATING.

Finally, we ask you to send an email with your contact details to URS600@emm.com to confirm receipt of this letter. That way we know that you are aware of the contents of the letter, and can use that email address to send you further information.
