Beckett recently released the following bulletin regarding Cleancut Pumps (A2EA-6527):
This bulletin advises that Cleancut pumps A2EA-6527 manufactured during months March, April, and May 2016 might present a tightness issue on Inlet/Return ¼-18 NPTF plugs.
In order to identify such pumps, it is necessary to check the date stamped on the top of the body:
- Before starting your burner, confirm the pump is not in the affected date range.
If the unit is in the date range, follow steps 2 and 3.
- Carefully verify the tightness of Inlet/Return plugs.
- For any recognized or suspected leak, unscrew plugs and apply pipe sealant, and re-insert them with a fitting torque of 12 to 20 Ft.Lbs.
