    ​Cold-Weather Operation

    For mulch producers who must continue operating in the winter to meet demand, it is important to implement cold-weather operation procedures to avoid damaging mulch coloring equipment.

    When the temperature drops to the 25 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit​​ range, the mulch coloring system will run as normal using these steps:

    • Turn on the components momentarily to verify proper operation and make sure that the shaft rotates freely.

    • Connect mulch colorant hoses to colorant supply.

    • Connect water input to water inlet, but do not turn water on until all other preparations are complete.

    • Mix mulch colorant prior to use. The colder the colorant, the more mixing required — typically 30 minutes will be sufficient.

    • Prime mulch colorant pump and water lines as normal when ready to begin coloring.

    • Ensure that nozzles are spraying normally using proper procedures.

    • Follow "Cold Weather" shut-down procedures at the end of each operation.

    For any questions on this process, contact your territory manager.
