Attach the chain hook to the D lug and lift the batcher to the conveyor. Use a large punch and align the bolt holes Install the fasteners holding the batcher
to the conveyor
Install the clam shell gate. Place the hopper gate pivot pin into the hopper gate support member. Position the pin so that the tab prevents the pin from
turning. Install the cotter pin into the pivot pin and lock In place Repeat this for the other side of the gate.
Install the two limit switches onto the mounts on the batcher. Connect the wiring to the limit switches. Test the limit switch lever to determine if It Is In the
correct position. The lever mounted towards the head end of the conveyor must click over when the gate is in the closed position. (The switches are
spring loaded and return to the neutral position. When contact within the limit switch is made, caused by the movement of the lever, the switch will click )
The lever mounted toward the feed end of the conveyor must click over when the gate Inin the open position. If this does not happen on these switches,
adjust the lever positioning by repositioning the lever on the shaft protruding from the switch
5. Install the air cylinder and the gate members into the mount on the batcher. Install the eight bolts and washers leaving them loose until the clevis pin had
been install to the gate lug. Extend the cylinder shaft and install the cylinder pin into the gate lug and lock the cotter pin in place. Tighten the bolts holding
the cylinder in place. Test the gate and cylinder stroke to see that the gate goes to a fully closed position and can open without the cylinder shaft binding.
Connect the air lines to the cylinder taking care to connect the correct air line to the correct port.
The platform can be lifted into position and the two mount pins installed into the mounts
Removal, Repair and Replacement. See figures 3-12, 3-13 and 3-14.
This procedure assumes a complete removal, repair and replacement of this component. A partial disassembly repair and replacement is possible. Read this
complete procedure prior to beginning. Follow those procedures required to remove the components requiring repair or replacement. Close inspection of
components prior to their removal or disassembly may eliminate unnecessary work.
A. Removal of the Conveyor
The slat conveyor should be removed from the chassis of the surge bin in order to carry out a complete repair and/or overhaul.
