If you have a Model 600, 670, 1000, 1505D, 1505D-EXP, you will need an external pressure source (Nitrogen Tank) to pressurize the instrument. The instrument may be connected to a (large non-portable) nitrogen cylinder for use in a laboratory. However, a Portable Tank is helpful for use in the field.
To hook up and operate any of the other pressure chambers listed above, you must have the following 3 items:
- Pressure Chamber Instrument
- Portable Tank or Nurse Tank
- 6 foot filling hose
Pressure Chamber Instrument, Portable Tank and Filling Hose.
First, connect the Filling Hose to the Portable Tank.
Next, connect the filling hose to the instrument.
You will need to push down on the outer ring of the quick connect fitting to get a proper connection with the hose.
Pull gently on hose to ensure properly connected.
