Install the idler shaft, idlers, hubs and bearings Position the idlers according to the dimensions shown in Figure 3-
14. Install the bearings according to the Instructions in Section 3-3-13. Connect the grease line to the bearings.
Install the tail shaft, hubs and sprockets 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.
Center the shaft In the conveyor body
Install the bearing plate and bearing onto one side of the conveyor. Tighten the bolts holding the bearing in place
Follow the bearing manufacturers instructions in Section 3-4-14. Install the top and bottom bearing plate slide
members into place but do not tighten bolts. Repeat this process for the opposite side.
Slide the tall shaft assembly forward (toward the drive end).
Install the two take up rods and nuts.
Install one of the two chain sections Feed the chain along the floor and over the drive shaft sprocket and back over
the idlers to the tail shaft sprocket. Join the chain at the tail shaft Repeat for the second chain. Make sure the
attachment links from one chain to the other are aligned.
Adjust the take up rods removing the slack in the chain. The tail shaft should be towards the rear of the take up
Bolt three slats onto the chain at the tail shaft using twelve of the proper fasteners for each slat This will confirm
that the sprockets are the correct width apart. Check the clearance between the slats and the side wear plates It
should be even on both sides. Adjust the positioning of the sprockets if necessary.
Repeat this process at the drive shaft Adjust the sprockets If necessary
The fasteners holding the sprocket hubs and segments should be welded. Weld the nut to the bolt to prevent the
nut from coming loose when the conveyor and sprocket gets hot.
Continue installing the slats to the chain on the return side of the chain. When this has been completed, move the
chain so that the slats are on the lower side and the chain section without slats is on the top.
Adjust the chain with the adjustment rods on the tail shaft. The chain should sag on the return side approximately
1" to 1.5" between two idler shafts. If the
