1. The 8598B may be mounted in any orientation without aff ect-
ing accuracy. However, each 8598B comes with its fl ow indica-
tor in a pre-determined location. For ease of reading fl ow, North
American recommends selecting a meter based on your expect-
ed mounting orientation. See “Ordering Information” on page 3.
3. The medium must not contain any solids or contaminants
prone to precipitate out of solution and deposition on the instru-
ments inner walls. This would prevent proper operation of the
device. Unclean media should be fi ltered upstream of the 8598B.
North American off ers a series 8555B basket strainer for such
purposes. North American recommends a 20 mesh strainer for
40 SSU oil (See 8555B strainer bulletin).

Situations dangerous to personnel and property may exist with the operation and maintenance of any combustion equipment. The presence of fuels, oxidants, hot and cold combustion products, hot
surfaces, electrical power in control and ignition circuits, etc., are inherent with any combustion application. Components in combustion systems may exceed 160°F (71°C) surface temperatures and present hot
surface contact hazard. Fives North American Combustion, Inc. suggests the use of combustion systems that are in compliance with all Safety Codes, Standards, Regulations and Directives; and care in operation.
