IS32 InfraStake Module Maintenance
How often do the reflective surfaces need to be cleaned?
Every three weeks is a good starting point for a PM schedule for a single-shift, 5-day operation. The interval can then be adjusted as necessary. Inspect the insides of the reflectors and concentrators every 3 weeks and look for dirty residue. Another indicator of dirty reflective surfaces is a boss that isn’t fully staked by process settings that were working well before.
2. Clean the reflective surfaces
Thoroughly clean the reflector and concentrator with a soft, clean cloth and non-abrasive polish (i.e. Award Glo) or any non-abrasive cleaner (i.e. window cleaner or isopropyl alcohol). Extol offers a cleaning kit that contains Award Glo polish and a polishing cloth. Part No. 1102706
Replacing the Lamp
How long should the lamp last?
The life of the tungsten-halogen lamp varies somewhat from lamp to lamp. Generally speaking, if your InfraStake heat time is 6 seconds, the lamp should last for half a million cycles.
