Purging the mobile phase:
Put the mobile phase in the reservoir tray and then:
  1. Open the drain valve of the pump module
  2. Push the purge button
  3. Purging will start and it will automatically stop after 3 minutes. To stop purging before 3 minutes press the purge button again and close the drain valve. If purging stops automatically only close the drain valve.
