4.5 Filter Holder Maintenance
The filter holder is maintenance free with the exception of tightening or
loosening the mechanism if the system should become loose or is having an
issue passing a leak check.
There are o-rings on the top and bottom mate pieces that seal the filter cassette.
If there appears to be a leak in the system, inspect these for wear or damage.
Replace if needed. See section 13.0 Maintenance for instructions on replacing
the o-rings on the filter holder.
The filter holder should be cleaned on a monthly basis to keep stray particulate
matter from affecting sampling results. The inside of the bottom and top mate
and the top tube can be cleaned with distilled water or a general purpose cleaner
and a soft cloth.
