1.1 Periodic Maintenance
The following general guideline gives a brief
description of parts to be cleaned, checked, or
renewed, at different maintenance intervals.
It is primarily the components with moving
parts, i.e. pumps and automatic filter, that
require regular replacement of worn parts. Other
components require regular inspection and, if
necessary, cleaning, e.g. heaters and
viscosimeter. PHE type heaters will need regasketing after a number of years, depending on
temperature.
For maintenance actions in connection with first
start-up, see the Installation System Reference
booklet.
For further information concerning component
maintenance, see the individual component
descriptions.
Before any maintenance is done, it is essential to
carefully study the instruction manuals for each
of the main components. These instructions are
included in this complete instruction binder.
For an overview of recommended regular
maintenance, see the section below.

1.3 Spare Parts


Regional Distribution Centres in Sweden, North
America, and Singapore linked with Alfa Laval
offices worldwide ensure that the spare parts
you order are delivered to the port of your choice
within 24 48 hours.
For recommended stock of spare parts and
service kits, see the Overhaul Kit table in the
Spare Parts Catalogue.
NOTE
Always use Alfa Laval genuine parts as otherwise the
warranty may become invalid.
Alfa Laval takes no responsibility for the safe
operation of the equipment if non-genuine spare
parts are used.

1.4 On-site Service


For on-site service by an Alfa Laval service
engineer, please contact your local Alfa Laval
office. See www.alfalaval.com. for contact
information.
The Alfa Laval office can also assist in upgrading
the module to, for example, a higher level of
automation.

System

ON
CAUTI

Pressure Risk

X0 23 29 5A

Before starting maintenance work on the filters,


pumps, or viscosity block, release the pressure in
them.

Release the pressure as follows.

Open the by-pass line or standby system.

Turn off the flow to and from the component.

Remove the threaded ventilation nipple.

Screw in the supplied ventilation tube, holding


the other end of the tube over a recepticle.

When fuel has stopped draining from the


ventilation tube, open the drain plug to remove
the remaining fuel in the component.

Ventilation nipple

When maintenance work is finished, replace the


drain plug. Replace the ventilation nipple, open
the flow line to and from the component, and
close the by-pass line or standby system. Clean
the ventilation tube using compressed air.

1.6 Change of Circuit Board


Maintenance of the EPC 50B Controller

Maintenance is not required unless a fault


occurs in the boards.
If a persistant fault in the boards occurs, this
must not be repaired. The board must be
replaced with a spare board.
If a circuit board has to be changed, proceed as
follows:
Note down the fuel consumption and running
hours as shown under Process Info.
Change the board according to the instructions
below.
Go to parameters Fa 45 58, and insert the
information.

OP-Board

Switch power off.

Disconnect the two cable plugs (do not


remove the cables from the plugs).

Disconnect the flatcable connector at the top.

Unscrew the five hexagon nuts.

Mount the new board, and connect in reverse


order.

I/O-Board

Switch power off.

Disconnect the cable plug(s) on the


expansion and other optional boards (do not
remove the cables from the plug(s)).

Disconnect the flatcable connector at the top.

Unscrew the three hexagon nuts.

Note the position of the board and remove the


board.

Disconnect all the cable plugs on the large


board (do not remove the cables from the
plugs).

Unscrew the hexagon nuts. Take care to note


where the special nuts for optional board(s)
are located.

Mount the new board in the same position as


the old, and connect in reverse order.

Viscosity Circuit Board

Open the door of the EPC50V control unit.

Turn off the power with the main switch


(located on the right side of the cabinet).

Locate the Viscosity circuit board in the upper


left corner of the cabinet.

Unplug terminal J1, J6 and the contact for


voltage supply on the old board.

Dismount the four screws holding the board.

Replace the old board with the new one and


mount it in the same way (see picture) as at
delivery.

a The Viscosity circuit board shall be placed


on the 35 mm spacers (enclosed and
mounted at first delivery), according to
picture.

b The Cooling flange shall be turned to the


left (means numbers on terminals turned
up side down), according to picture.

Mount the four screws.

Re plug terminal J1, J6 and the contact for


voltage supply - see picture and
interconnection diagram.

a Terminal J1; X5:2 to J1:2 and X5:5 to J1:1 check with interconnection diagram.
(Viscosity signals 4-20 mA from the
Viscosity circuit board to the EPC50V
control unit).

b Terminal J6: See interconnection diagram.


(Signal from Viscosity sensor to Viscosity
circuit board).

c Contact for voltage supply, see picture.

1.7 Replacement of Viscosity Sensor


Stop the viscosity system by pressing the
stopbutton.

Turn off the power with the main switch


located on the inside of the cabinet.

Open the by-pass valves

Close valves in order to isolate the sensor.

Cool down the housing and sensor.

NOTE
Be very careful when handling the viscosity sensor.
Never use abrasive materials to clean the flow tube
as this will damage the Teflon coating. Clean the
space between the tube and the pendulum with
diesel oil.

Disconnect teminal J6 on the viscosity circuit


board and disconnect the cables from the
terminal.
NOTE
Make sure that the housing is firmly mounted and
supported before mounting of the sensor.
