Hydrocollator Mobile Heating Unit (NGL-LJM-4)
Scientists proved that moist heat packs generate deep moist heat which delivers increased advantages over dry heat to relieve chronic arthritic pain, acute muscle strains and general musculoskeletal discomfort.
These durable stainless steel water tanks house the Hydrocollator moist heat packs. The units are thermostatically controlled to ensure the ideal therapeutic temperature for the packs. Hydrocollator remains the benchmark heating unit against which other units are judged.
Heats therapy packs and maintains temperature for training rooms, gyms, clinics and physical therapy offices.

Safety Precautions –
DO NOT operate this unit in an environment where other devices are being used that intentionally radiates electromagnetic energy in an unshielded manner. Portable and mobile RF communications equipment can affect medical electrical equipment.
The Hydrocollator Heating Unit generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to other devices in the vicinity. Harmful interference to other devices can be determined by turning the Hydrocollator Heating Unit on and off.
- The water temperature in the Hydrocollator Heating Unit is approximately 60° F (71° C), and the water scalding temperature is approximately 120° F (49° C).
- Care must be taken when operating the Hydrocollator Heating Unit adjacent to or stacked with other equipment.
- The Hydrocollator Heating Unit should be placed on a smooth, level surface. The surface should support up to the Filled Weight (weight of heating unit filled with water).
- Do not need to adjust the thermostat. The temperature of the Unit has been preset at 70° C to 80 ° C to the best for moist heat pack condition. The temperature of the water should be checked with a thermometer after every adjustment, before using the hot pack. Always allow sufficient time for the water temperature to stabilize.
- The Hydrocollator Heating Unit should not be installed above a surface that is susceptible to casual water damage.
- Always keep the water level over the top of the hot packs to avoid burning or scorching of the packs.
- Always destroy and replace hot packs which are exposed to contamination – hazardous or cleaning materials, bodily fluids, mold, etc.
- Check water level daily as it has a natural loss due to evaporation.
- Clean the tank as described in the maintenance portion of at least every 2 weeks.
- Check unit periodically for signs of leaking and contact service if leaks are noted.
- Always replace hot packs as soon as they show signs of wear.
- If the unit is to be left unattended for a period of time, unplug the unit, remove the packs, empty the water, and clean the tank.
- Do not move the Heating Unit while filled with heated water. Tipping over could result in burns to the user or others.
- Always unplug the Heating Unit from the power source before attempting to empty water from unit.
- This unit should be operated, transported, and stored in temperatures between 0° F and 140° F (-18° C and 60° C) and with relative humidity ranging from 10% – 100%.
Care for Use –
Follow these simple steps to ensure that the Hydrocollator Heating Unit remains in good condition.
- Excessive chlorine can be detrimental to the stainless steel in the Hydrocollator Heating Unit. No bleach or any cleaner with high chlorine content should be used under any circumstance.
- Clean regularly for optimal service and operation.
- Fill daily with water. Water is constantly lost during operation due to evaporation.
- Chlorine in regular tap water may be present in high enough concentrations to damage the unit. If you suspect high levels of chlorine are detected in the Hydrocollator Heating Unit, the addition of a dechlorinated agent is recommended.
- Certain additives (such as herbal teas, essential oils, etc.) will damage the hot packs and components of the heating unit, including the stainless steel.
- The Hydrocollator Heating Unit was designed to heat water and hot packs only.
- Inspect heating element for pitting and other visible damage during regular cleaning intervals.
- Inspect power cord for wear, fraying, and other visible damage during regular cleaning intervals.
- Not recommend the Unit be moved while filled with heated water. Tipping over could result in a burn to the user or others. If the Hydrocollator must be moved while filled, it is strongly recommended to allow the water to cool below 120° F (49° C) before moving the unit.
- Always unplug the Hydrocollator Heating Unit from the power source before attempting to empty water from unit.
Care of Moist Heat Packs on Hydrocollator Unit –
- Always return the packs to the hot water of the heating unit after each treatment. There it is heated, kept clean, and ready for immediate use. The packs may be boiled; however, this hastens the deterioration of the pack. The pack may also be cleaned by scrubbing the pack with soap and water.
- A simplified method of keeping the pack clean is to keep it immersed in water. Never allow the hot packs to dry after use.
- When the pack begins to wear out, the filler oozes and leaks through the fabric of the cloth; sections of the pack appear to be loose and empty and will not retain heat properly. The pack should be replaced when it reaches this state.
