Immediately upon receipt all items in the conveyor or component shipment should be checked against shipping papers for
shortages and inspected for damage. Items to be checked include bent or dented troughs, covers, flights, pipes, hangers,
guards, drives, etc. Note claims for damaged parts on shippers papers and immediately file a claim. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO INSTALL A DAMAGED ITEM OR CONVEYOR.
LIFTING AND MOVING
Extreme care must be taken to prevent damage when moving assembled conveyors or components. Spreader bars with
slings are the recommended support method for lifting. The unsupported span should be no longer than 10 to 12 feet.
Never lift a conveyor with only one support point. Unusually heavy items such as drives or gates shall be considered when
choosing support points because of load balance and their bending effect.
The above diagram is representative only. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to consult contract drawings for specific
items on each conveyor.
For safety and proper operation screw conveyors must be assembled and erected straight and true. It is the responsibility
of the purchaser to insure all support and mounting surfaces are level and true so there is no distortion in the conveyor.
All component pieces (or conveyor sections) should be placed in proper sequence before assembly is started
Sub-assemblies such as trough end and seal/bearings should be assembled (if not shipped pre-assembled) and alignment
of seals and bearings and seal direction should be checked.
