Wagner Part 36 water makeup tank design-possible engine damage and vent hole in scrubber-|
An Atlas Copco Wagner, Inc. automatic water make-up system used on certain Part 36 machines manufactured by Atlas Copco Wagner, Inc., Getman, Inc. and Cyprus Plateau Mining has an overflow hole built into the scrubber. This hole allows excess water to drain from the scrubber. The hole was incorporated into this design since excess water in the scrubber could, under certain conditions, flow into the engine through the exhaust pipe and damage the engine. The scrubber was approved with this hole long before the DPM regulations became effective. This hole must be plugged in a manner that prevents the release of unfiltered exhaust gas and also prevents water from flowing back into the engine. Wagner has developed a retrofit kit.
