This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance of electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. DANGER: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance — if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. This appliance is for use on a nominal 110-volt circuit (V ACOS- F). A temporary adapter may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw. This unit is also available for 230V configuration (VACOS-F220). THIS APPLIANCE IS INTENDED FOR COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. SERVICING, OTHER THAN NORMAL MAINTENANCE, NIUST BE DONE BY AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE.

Remove hose, power cord, and fact01Y sealed forensic filter and crevice tool from cover storage area. Remove the orange plug from the filter cartridge and store in unit. Slide one end of the super flex hose into the filter cartridge. *Remove forensic filter and then remove red caps and attach hose and crevice tool. Plug the female end of the power cord into the receptacle on the vacuum. Close lid and latch securely. Plug the power cord into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. Turn on the power switch. These vacuums have a factory installed resettable Thermal Cutout (TCO) for added operator and motor safety. Ifthe unit gets too hot, the vacuum will shut down for approx. 20 minutes. Turn the on/offswitch to the off position, and turn back on in approximately 20 minutes. Your hose may be clogged, or it may be time to install a new filter. *PROCEDURE Prepare Vacuum for Use Tamper proof evidence tape is used to seal the evidence filter. Do not attempt to open the filter chamber. Any assembly with disturbed evidence seals should be discarded. 1. Remove the round red vinyl caps from both ends of the filter. Keep these caps for later use. Attach the appropriate tool to the tapered end of the filter. 2. Attach the filter directly to your vacuum’s flexible hose. Proceed with evidence collection. Monitor the amount of evidence collected through the chamber’s clear tube, and replace filters as needed. 3. After collection is complete or the filter is full, remove the tool from the filter. Remove the filter from the vacuum sweeper and replace both end caps. This effectively seals the evidence into the trace evidence filter assembly. 4. Fill out the form printed on the self-sealing evidence/property bag in which the filter assembly will be packed. 5. Initial the evidence tape seal on filter assembly. 6. Place the filter and applicable tool into the bag. 7. Remove the release liner from the flap of the bag. (The release liner is a plastic strip that protects the adhesive.) 8. Fold along the line indicated on the bag. Press flap and bag together along the line of adhesive to form seal. The bag is now sealed. 9. Tear off the receipt tag from the end of the bag and retain for your records. 10. Forward sealed evidence bag to appropriate crime laboratory. INTRODUCTION The Trace Evidence Collection Filter is designed and manufactured specifically for the collection of >90% of 3-10 micron particle evidence at crime scenes. The evidence filters offer one-time use to prevent any possibility of contamination from one area to another. These filters are sealed at the factory, and these seals must not be disturbed either before or after evidence is collected. The seal may be broken only by the laboratory technician. CAUTIONS • The trace evidence filter is intended for one use only. DO NOT REUSE THIS FILTER or CREVICE TOOL.
****** Page 3 ****** Reuse will result in cross-contamination of evidence. • After the filter and applicable tool are sealed in an evidence collection bag, any attempt to open the sealed bag will result in easily detected distortion in the seal area. l. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
