Open the valves for the hot oil to circulate. OPEN ONLY IF DRUM
MELTER IS TO BE USED.
Feed Conveyor Set Up Procedures
(See Figures 2-1, 2-22 and 2-23)
The Feed Conveyor is positioned at a right angle to the Drum mixer. The critical point is the discharge hood to the
Drum Mixer aggregate feed chute.
Position the feed conveyor according to the site layout.
With the feed conveyor still attached to the transport unit connect the hydraulic power pack to
the valve bank on the rear of the trailer. Remove the two pins located in the square telescoping tubes supporting the
conveyor. Extend the hydraulic cylinder to the end of its stroke using the hydraulic valve bank. Re-install the pins to
prevent the cylinder from retracting.
Disconnect the hydraulic power pack.
Back the feed conveyor into position 60 inches from the chassis of the drum mixer, lining up
the discharge box with the drum feed chute. At this distance the discharge chute may not appear to be directly over
the feed box. This will happen when the chassis is in the operating position.
Extend the landing jacks and disconnect the feed conveyor from the transport unit.
Connect the hydraulic power pack to the feed conveyor. Lower the hydraulic jacks at the front
of the trailer.
Remove all the bolts holding the landing jacks in position. The landing jacks are left in position
and are free to slide up into the chassis as the front of the trailer is lowered.
Lower the four screw jacks into the operating position.
Remove the king-pin adapter box if it has been used to transport the unit (an alternative is to
dig a hole under the front of the trailer with a loader and leave the adapter box attached to the trailer during mixing).
