Most epoxy resins may be left in the unit for a period of time with no problems because the resin components are not joined together within the dispenser. No flushing of the inside of the unit is required.
1. Dispose the static mixer
2. Clean threads on the dispenser nozzle and mixer retaining nut with solvent
3. Apply grease to the threads to prevent epoxy from bonding to the components making it easy to remove nut during future cleanings
4. Wipe down metering pistons with solvent and apply grease
Although resin components within the unit are not mixed, they will crystallize over time. Therefore, it is recommended that the entire system be flushed with Acetone or Methyl Ethyl Ketone to remove accumulations of resin from the unit. The solvent should then be followed with hydraulic fluid to keep the system well lubricated until it is used again.
