The following are environmental issues concerning the Figure 4 UV Curing Unit 350:
The pollution degree of the intended environment for this equipment is PD2 (Pollution Degree 2).
To allow optimum systems operation and optimum part quality, the temperature of the Figure 4 UV Curing Unit 350 location should remain stable. The working range is 18-28°C (64-82°F). Any temperature fluctuation greater than 3°C may adversely affect parts cured in the system. The air conditioning system should maintain a temperature change of less than 1°C per hour. The unit's room should have a minimum cooling capacity of 1.4 kW. We recommend an HVAC system that changes the air six times per hour. To avoid adversely affecting part quality, do not expose the Figure 4 UV Curing Unit 350 to direct air flow from the air conditioning system.
There are no special requirements for controlling waste heat on the Figure 4 UV Curing Unit 350.
Humidity and Altitude
The optimal humidity in the Figure 4 UV Curing Unit 350 lab will depend to a certain degree on the resin selection. Regardless, the humidity should always be non-condensing and should not vary outside the range of 20% to 80% RH. Review your material information (SDS, Instructions for Use, and product labeling) for specific information on recommended humidity levels.
The Figure 4 UV Curing Unit 350 is capable of operating correctly up to an altitude of 2,400 m (7,874 ft) above mean sea level.
Overall sound-pressure level for this equipment will not exceed 85 dBA, and, therefore, does not require ear protection to operate.
Disposal of Figure 4 Resin and Waste
When you dispose of green parts, refer to the SDS for that material and follow any applicable government regulations. All waste products (resin-soaked paper towels, cleaning liquids, etc.) must be disposed of in accordance with all applicable government regulations. However, the recommendation is to cure all parts, even those from a failed build. Cured parts may be disposed of in regular trash, which is better for the environment.
Do not clean anything with uncured resin on it in a sink or tub that drains into normal wastewater.
