INTERRUPTIONS AND DOWN-

Interruptions at work that last longer than 30 minutes
should be avoided at all costs because this material in
the mortar hose and injector can start to harden and
even set under certain circumstances.

Starting the machine in this case would cause a break-


down and a considerable amount of cleaning.

machine is started again.

These variations are caused by material setting in the

last until the hardened material in the hose passes
through the nozzle.

At this stage the pressure in the hose may rise consid-
