Maintenance and cleaning


The grinding chamber interior (funnels, dosing
equipment, rotor, grinding surface, fi lter and out-
let nozzle) with a brush (no wire brush) should
be cleaned after the grinding procedure. You can
also use rags or cleaning brushes. The grinding
surface does not need to be disassembled for
cleaning between grinding operations with the
same feed material. If a new grinding procedure
with other feedings is to be performed where-
by no contamination may be produced by the
previously ground material, then more thorough
cleaning is necessary which means dismantling
the grinding chamber and the rotors. See the
chapter „Commissioning“ for assembly and di-
The grinding chamber parts can be washed with
water and, if required, with a conventional dish-
washing agent.
Be certain that the parts are dry before being re-

Caution: Refer to the chapter on „Safety Inst-

ructions“ when cleaning the cutting-grinding
surface and the blade rotor as the screwed on
blades are very sharp and may result in injuries if
they are improperly handled.

Clogged fi lters can be cleaned with brushes or
compressed air. If ground material parts have
settled into the fi lter holes in such a way that
cleaning alternatives are not suffi cient, then you
will have to clean the clogged holes with suitable
needles or clean the fi lter in an ultrasonic bath.
If beaters or blades and the grinding surface be-
come worn in the course of the time, particularly
with constant grinding of very hard substances,
so that quick operation with the appropriate qua-
lity is no longer possible, then the worn out parts
should be replaced.

Blades may not be reground as the blade

clearance will become too large. Fore rea-

sons of safety, only new, original IKA



may be used for fastening the knives.

The appliance is maintenace-free. It is subject
only to the natural wear and tear of components
and their statistical failure rate.
