Inspect all shafts for cracks or damage. Replace as necessary.
Inspect the idlers. If worn repair or replace
Inspect the side wear plates. Replace If excessive wear is visible. (These plates are 1/2" thick and should be
replaced If worn to the point of being less than 1/4" thick )
Inspect the floor. Drill a 3/8" hole through the floor wear plate in the center of the floor. Determine the remaining
thickness If the wear plate Is less than 3/8" thick It should be replaced. Check each wear plate separately as the
wear may not be even from the bottom to the top of the conveyor.
Inspect the grease lines for damage. Test to determine whether grease passes through them. Replace if
Inspect all weldments on the conveyor body Repair as required.
Inspect the conveyor pivot shaft and bushings. Repair or replace If these components show signs of wear
Install the floor wear plates starting with the plate at the drive end. Position it in place and tack weld to the
conveyor body floor at the drive end.
Install the remaining floor wear plates tack welding them to the previously installed plate.
Start at the drive end and stitch weld the plate to the conveyor body floor
Working toward the feed end of the conveyor continue to weld the floor wear plates at the seams.
Stitch weld the last floor wear plate to the conveyor body floor.
Install the side wear plates starting at the drive end and doing one side of the conveyor at a time Use new
fasteners and tighten after all bolts have been Installed into one plate
Install the drive shaft, hubs, sprockets and bearings. These components cannot be pre-assembled. They must be
assembled as they are Installed into the body. (This applies to each of the shafts In the slat conveyor ) Position the
sprockets on the shaft. Tighten hub bolts to prevent sprocket from moving. Tighten bolts holding segments to hub.
Do not use lock washers on these bolts.
