Cleaning the equipment

To prolong the life of your equipment it is important to clean each component.

The gel on the Elite Bridge sucker should be wiped away using a cloth.

To clean the syringe assembly, remove the needle and plunger and carefully clean the black seal on the plunger.

The inside of the syringe can be dried using a rolled-up piece of dry cloth. Any residual resin should also be removed from the needle.

Next dismantle the injector assembly and again use a rolled up piece of cloth to dry the inside of the female injector barrel. Also make sure the tip of the plunger is clean and dry.

It is especially important to clean the injector seal very carefully, completely wiping away any excess resin.  This will prolong the life of the injector.

And return all equipment to the correct place in the carry case.
