PUMP INLET STRAINER:Poor cooler performance can often be traced to a partially or completely blocked pump inlet strainer. This is a user serviceable item and can be cleaned and reused or replaced. Continued pump operation with a blocked strainer can cause: • Voiding of cooler service warranty• Cavitation damage to the pump head’s inlet areas• Welding accessory damage from overheating due to insufficient coolant flow rate. A new or properly cleaned pump inlet strainer should restore the cooler’s performance.
Here's an important maintenance tip!Welding equipment coolers using a built-in strainer can tell you a lot. Remove the hex strainer retaining cap and take out the stainless-steel strainer. If you find deposits or debris in the strainer it can be a sign of trouble.Debris trapped in the filter may be the results of deterioration of weld cables, torches or hoses or contamination from lime or other minerals in the coolant.
