Remove all packaging & Vinyl Coating material carefully and dispose of appropriately.Temporarily plug machine in to mains, press grey foot pedal to open lid to remove jackingfeet & leveling screws from within chamber prior to installation. The installation kit and/oraccessories, if ordered, are also located within the chamber.
SafetyWhenever working on the machine, ensure that the power is
Removing the front panelEnsure there is a minimum of 800mm
clearance at the front of the machine.
Remove the panel by unscrewing the two hex head bolts using a
10mm spanner. Lift the panel upwards and pull the panel gently
forward. Carefully place the front panel to one side.
Positioning the unitWe recommend that the floor below the machine is fully sealed to ensure that any leaks are
Ensure that the unit is sited to give easy access from the front, both for operators and for
Ensure that the machine is level, use jacking feet if necessary.
Connecting to the soil pipeThe Panamatic requires five 3” elbows to make up a complete “P”
trap. The 3” trap should connect immediately to a 4” swept tee or
swept bend via a 3”-4” reducer. Under no circumstances shouldshort or 90o elbows be used. Ensure that the 110mm swept tee orswept bend has a reasonable gravity fall. The 4” soil pipe must be a
nominal height of 260mm high (floor to mid-point of soil).
The waste should take the most direct route to the soil stack or drain. Do not use 90o elbows.Use swept bends only. Ensure that adequate rodding access points are provided and that the
pipe work is fully supported throughout with a minimum gravity fall of 1:40.
Fitting an air admittance valveIf the soil stack is more than 2 meters away from the machine, an air admittance valve should
be fitted upstream of the unit. The air admittance valve should rise to at least 900mm.

Connecting to the water supplyThe Panamatic requires a cold water supply only and incorporates
its own water storage tank with a WRAS approved Class ‘A’ air gap
and water solenoid valve.
Ideally, the machine should operate directly from the rising water
mains supply. However, it may be connected to a suitable header
tank providing that a minimum flow rate is:
Water Pressure required = 1 bar minimum – 6 bar maximumMinimum Water Flow required = Cold Feed – 18L/min at 1 bar
An approved double check valve should be fitted prior to the connection of the isolator.This is to prevent any risk of chemicals/contaminates from the flexible hose entering the
We recommend using a minimum of 15mm copper pipe throughout the water supply line to
provide adequate supply rates. Connect the water supply to the unit using a 2.5 metre
flexible hose (which is supplied with the unit), one end will be connected to the water
solenoid valve and the other end to be connected by installer to the isolator valve.
In case of emergency, please ensure that operators have easy access to switch off thewater supply.
Fitting the overflowThe Panamatic is supplied with a 22mm compression fitting for
the overflow pipe. Ideally, the pipe should go directly to the soil
pipe via a sight glass. Ensure that the overflow has a naturalgravity fall.
Alternatively, the overflow may empty into a visible floor drain or
through an outside wall.
Connecting to the electrical supplyThe unit is Single Phase (230-240 VAC 50 HZ) and is supplied with a 2.5 meter length of 3
core 4mm2 cable. The cable should be connected to an approved 13amp fused neonswitched spur isolator with RCD and over current protection.
In case of emergency, please ensure that operators have easy access to the electrical.
Earth bonding the machineEarth bonding must be in accordance with current IEE Regulations. An earth stud is fitted
to the rear of the machine for this purpose.
Boxing inWhere it has not been possible to fit the machine up tight against the rear wall, we
recommend that the gap between the rear of the machine and the wall is boxed in. This will
prevent items from falling down behind in areas that may be difficult to reach.
Fitting a scalematic scale inhibitorPlease follow the instructions included with the Scalematic unit. Scalematics are connected
to incoming cold water supply. Ensure the directional arrow on the fitting is correct.

Fitting a detergent systemWhere a detergent system has been ordered, the pump will have been fitted to the
Panamatic at the factory before dispatch and the initial supply of detergent (usually 5 litres)
will have been placed inside the chamber.
If a wire basket (or storage cupboard) has been supplied to hold the 5 litre chemical
container, please screw this to a wall within 1 metre of the sluice. The basket/storage
cupboard should be in full view of the person responsible for keeping the detergent topped
up and at a convenient height for easy removal of the container. Care should be taken to
ensure that the lid of the Panamatic is able to open fully and freely.
An Installation Kit is available from the manufacturers at an extra charge.This kit comprises of:
Drain system1 x 600mm length of 80mm/3” pipe
5 x 3” Elbow (65-08-014)
1 x 3”- 4” Reducer (65-08-017)
1 x 3” Female Connector (65-08-015)
Cold water supply1 x 15mm isolator tap
1 x 15mm double check non-return valve
Power supply1 x white 13amp safety isolating switch
2 metres 6mm earth cable, crimped one end for ease of connection
1 x earth clamp
The kit if ordered is stored in the chamber.
