Inlet is the top threaded insert (Dome) (From chairs)
Outlet is the bottom threaded insert (Legs) (To vacuum pump)
New “BOSS” Separator Installation (6.1)
2. Drain the evacuation line of all fluid before turning the vacuum pump off, to avoid spillage.
3. Turn off the vacuum pump.
4. Cut the hose coming from the operatories to allow connection to the “BOSS” amalgam separator.
5. If a solids collector cup is installed, be sure it is installed AFTER the Separator.
6. Find the hose that comes from the operatories in Step 4. Heat the end with the heat gun until pipe is pliable. Do not over heat. Slide the hose over an appropriately sized barbed to male threaded fitting. Place a clamp over the hose securing it onto the fitting. Do the same for the outlet end. Teflon tape both threaded fittings.
7. ** Read Optional steps 8 and 9 if an elbow is necessary for restricted access installations. If quick connections are being installed, Read Optional steps 10-12. If an elbow and quick connect are not being installed, proceed now to Step 13.
*8. Prepare a ID closed nipple (dual male end) with Teflon tape and screw the taped nipple into the threaded inlet of the separator. Hand tighten.
*9. Now attach a ID elbow (45 or 90 degree as required) onto the exposed end of the taped closed nipple referred to in Step 8. Do not over tighten. Proceed to step 10-12 if installing quick connects, or proceed to step 13 if quick connects are not being used.
*10. Screw Part A onto the male threaded connector attached to hose in Step 6.
*11. Teflon tape the threads on Part B, then screw into inlet and outlet of the “BOSS” amalgam separator (If there are elbows used, screw quick connect into elbow).
*12. Connect the quick connects by lifting the arms of Part B, then sliding Part A into the opening. Be sure to install hose into the correct fitting. Once the two parts are combined, lock them into place by lowering the arms of Part B. Once the inlet and outlet are locked into place, the “BOSS” amalgam separator is installed. Proceed to step 14.
No Quick Connects
*13. Loosen the clamp around the fittings installed in Step 6. Screw each fitting into the inlet (top) and (outlet) of the separator, without removing the fitting from the hose. With the clamps loosened the fitting should turn while in the hose. Once hoses are in place, tighten clamps.
14. Turn on pump and check visually for water leaks, feel every connection to assure no air is escaping.
15. Check the pressure gauge to see if it is still the same. Note pressure change if any.
Depleted Separator Replacement Guide (6.2)
1. Make a note of the vacuum pump pressure prior to starting the replacement and compare to the vacuum pressure after replacement.
2. All threaded fittings must use Teflon tape to ensure a water tight seal for transport.
3. Check the inlet and outlet hoses for leaks or cracks. Replace if damaged.
4. To avoid spillage, drain the evacuation line of all fluid before turning the vacuum pump off.
5. Loosen the clamp around the fitting at the inlet (top) of the separator, and unscrew the fitting from the separator without removing the fitting from the hose. With the clamps loosened the fitting should turn while in the hose. Keep the outlet attached. If there are Quick Connects, skip this step and only disconnect the inlet Quick Connect.
6. With the vacuum on, tilt the separator to approximately 60 degrees. This will allow excess water that is trapped in the primary chamber to pass through the filter and out to the pump system. Allow enough time for the pump to clear the excess water (for about 20 seconds).
7. When the lines have been cleared of excess water, turn off the vacuum pump. Use one of the 2 supplied ABS plugs with Teflon tape to plug the inlet of the used separator.
8. Repeat steps 5 and 7 for the outlet (bottom) Teflon tape MUST BE USED to ensure a water tight seal for transport.
10. Install new BOSS amalgam separator, reapplying Teflon tape on all connections attached to the “BOSS” amalgam separator.
11. Turn on pump and check for water or air leaks.
12. Check the pressure gauge to see if it is still the same. Note pressure change, if any.
13. Put the amalgam separator in a heavy duty garbage bag and place in the shipping box from the new separator and tape closed for shipping. Store depleted separator in upright position.
14. Prepare shipping label as follows:
M.A.R.S Bio-Med Processes Inc.
575 Wentworth Street East, Unit 21
15. When the depleted separator is boxed and ready to be shipped, send your completed Warranty Registration Card either by email (email@example.com) or by fax (905-723-9610) and we will send you a Courier Waybill to pick-up your depleted BOSS. Please be sure the Practice’s hours of operation and all contact information is included as this is required by our Couriers.
How to handle the Warranty Registration Card (6.3 Procedures)
In an effort to clarify the installation of the M.A.R.S. LibertyBOSS amalgam separator I would like to present the steps that need to be followed in order to return depleted M.A.R.S. LibertyBOSS’:
Removal – Instructions enclosed in every box or visit our Facebook page – LibertyBOSS
After installation of a new LibertyBOSS separator, the depleted separator with air tight plugs in the inlet and outlet (using Teflon Tape) is placed into the box that was supplied with the new separator.
The “Warranty Registration Card” needs to be completely filled out with the Doctor’s name, address, new LibertyBOSS’ serial number, etc., right down to the “Hours of Operation” which should include the days of the week and opening and closing times. If the office is closed through lunch, we need the times they are closed in order to advise the courier. The Technician must write “NO PICK-UP” on the top of the Warranty Registration Card if replacing a non-M.A.R.S. amalgam separator.
Once the installation is complete, the depleted separator is boxed, and the Warranty Registration Card completed and sent by either email firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 905-723-9610, M.A.R.S., will dispatch a courier to pick-up the depleted separator. Two copies of a waybill will be emailed or faxed to the customer directly. One waybill needs to be attached to the box, the other is to be signed by the Courier and kept in the customers files.
Should the Courier be unable to pick-up the separator during the listed Hours of Operation, the rescheduling of the pick-up and additional charges will become the responsibility of the Practice.We understand that there are always exceptions, so if you have any questions, please contact us directly.For questions regarding installation of this product, please call 1-866-594-3648.
