For your convenience, it is also recommended that a “T” valve

(not supplied) be installed on the base of your flow-through

nozzle that would allow you to connect to the SOLVENTsaver

hose in a more permanent fashion and permit you to easily

divert the flow of solvent from the flow-through nozzle to the

filtration element when the parts cleaner is not in use.
SOLVENTsavers are packaged two in a box, with one

connector hose. This durable hose is to be used for both

SOLVENTsavers.
SOLVENTsavers are intended only for use with combustible

mineral spirits/petroleum hydrocarbon-based solvents. When

the SOLVENTsaver is connected and unit is operating, solvent

is evenly dispersed throughout the absorbent material removing

oil and grease build-up. If fine particulate filtration is needed,

the SOLVENTsaver II should be used. It has a 5 micron pleated

paper cartridge to remove particulate prior to the oil and

grease absorbing stage.

INSTALLATION AND OPERATING

INSTRUCTIONS

Graymills SOLVENTsavers are designed to provide the user

with on-going solvent cleaning and quick, easy change-outs.

An optional, durable “side mount” bracket (part #SS-BRAC) is

available and may be used to protect the SOLVENTsaver and

serve as a handy, space-saving shelf.

Installation of SOLVENTsaver only

Proper installation of the SOLVENTsaver and/or hanging

bracket is very important. Do not obstruct the fusible link,

self-closing safety mechanism of your parts cleaner tank lid.
1. Turn off parts washer.
2. Attach the connector hose to hose barb located on the end

of canvas filtration bag.

Only one connector hose is shipped in each carton of two (2)

filtration elements. Save and reuse the connector hose.
3. Attach the end of the connector hose with the universal

adapter fitting to the end of flexible solvent discharge nozzle

on the parts cleaner.

4. Place the filtration element on its side in a convenient area

within the parts cleaner on a shelf above the cleaning

solution.

5. Turn the parts cleaner pump switch to “on” to start cleansing

action. The bag will fill and begin filtering the solvent.

Installation of SOLVENTsaver using optional

Side-mount Bracket

Proper installation of the SOLVENTsaver and/or hanging

bracket is very important. Do not obstruct the fusible link,

self-closing safety mechanism of your parts cleaner tank lid.
1. Turn off the parts washer.
2. Attach the connector hose to the hose barb located on the

end of the canvas filtration bag.

3. Attach the end of the connector hose with the universal

adapter fitting to the end of flexible solvent discharge nozzle

on the parts cleaner.

4. Lower the filtration element bag into the mounting bracket.
5. Hang the bracket on the inside wall of the parts cleaner and

out of the way.

6. Turn the part cleaner pump switch to “on” to start cleansing

action. The bag will fill and begin filtering the solvent.

Operation

• Graymills recommends that when installing SOLVENTsavers

for the first time, start with a clean batch of solvent and

make sure that the unit does not contain excessive amounts

of sludge.

• Starting clean and applying on-going filtration during down

time or off hours to keep your solvent clean on a day to day

basis.

• Color and clarity do not necessarily indicate the cleanliness,

strength or effectiveness of the solvent. For example, diesel

engines and diesel related oils, lubes, and carbons leave

a very dark appearance of the solvent even after it has

been cleansed but this does not necessarily indicate a lack

of effectiveness. The cleanliness of your parts is the true

indication of solvent effectiveness.

• The length of time that the SOLVENTsaver will continue to

cleanse solvent is relative to parts cleaner usage and the

dirt, oil and grease load.

• In order to keep the solvent clean, it is recommended that

you filter solvent as often and as long as possible on a day-

to-day basis. When it appears that oil and grease are not

being removed from solvent, a change-out is needed.

• To maximize the life of the SOLVENTsaver, we recommend

rotating the filtration element a quarter-turn once a day.

DISPOSAL

Allow the filtration element to drain and dry thoroughly, then

place in a plastic bag for disposal. It is recommended that

the user check with federal, state and local authorities for any

special regulatory considerations before disposing.
