- Connect the chiller to Cascom SE as shown below. (Picture from Chiller Instruction page 5)
- Remove the white cap of water inlet and place the water funnel
- Pour coolant through the water funnel
- Add water to the F line
- Remove the water funnel
- Place the white cap back on
After installing the chiller with Cascom SE, turn on the power of the Cascom SE and wait for 10 min so coolant/water circulates into the unit completely.
□ H. indicates that Chiller water temperature is overheating. Wait for 10min to use the unit.

|01||Water is leaking in the unit.||Stop using the unit immediately. Contact our technical support team for repair.|
|02||Water is leaking in the optional.chiller.||Stop using the chiller immediately. Contact our technical support team for repair.*Poor connection of the signal terminal may cause this error.|
|03||Chiller water is below required amount.||Check the amount of water/chiller in the chiller. Add more if necessary.*Poor connection of signal terminals may cause this error.|
|04||Chiller water is not flowing.||Check the hose and connection between the chiller and the unit.* Poor connection of the signal terminal may cause the error.|

Choosing the Right Crucible
Ceramic Crucible is used for Semi-Precious alloy that contains Palladium for more than 30% and for Non-Precious alloy such as Nickel-Chrome and Cobalt-Chrome alloy. Carbon Crucible is used for precious alloys such as Gold and Silver based metal.
Burnout process is one of the most important aspects of the casting with Cascom SE. In the case of insufficient burnout, you might experience short casting.
1. Phosphate for Crown & Bridge Gold
- Burnout w/ 1560°F (850°C) minimum of 1 hour and 20min. Longer is better.
2. Phosphate for Porcelain Fused Metal
- Burnout w/ 1650°F (900°C) over 1 hour. Longer is better.
Cascom SE requires 100psi to 145psi of pressurized air from the compressor. Insufficient air pressure is one of the most common reasons for short cast. If the distanse between the unit and the air compressor is far, Cascom SE might get less than 100psi even if the regulator of the compressor is showing 100psi.
When you cast metal that contains Palladium for more than 30% or Non-Precious metal, you must use Argon Gas. Argon Gas prevents oxidation and it helps to achieve clean casting results. Lack of argon gas causes alloy to not flow into the ring smoothly.
The most common Nickel-Chrome alloy miscast is metal not flowing into the ring due to overheating. When you overheat Nickel-Chrome alloy, it gets very sticky and does not drop smoothly to the ring. In this case, cast timing is very critical and you must press the [CAST] button earlier than usual.
