the scale carriage.
Remove the cable so that it goes with the scale when the scale is lifted off the conveyor.
Remove the scale idler assembly.
The hydraulic cylinder, conveyor support frame and conveyor support tube are removed as an assembly. Support
the conveyor body with an overhead hoist or crane. Disconnect the hydraulic lines to the cylinder, cap the line
ends and plug the cylinder ports.
Support the conveyor support frame to the conveyor body with a come-along or with a second hoist. Remove the
mount pin bolts and slide the conveyor support frame mount pin out of the conveyor and the frame. The top of the
support frame will be free.
Remove the telescoping arm support pins and the hydraulic cylinder bottom pin. This assembly can be pivoted
beyond the rear of the chassis and lowered to the ground.
Remove the telescoping lock pins from the frame and the support tubes can be removed. The hydraulic cylinder
top mount pin can be removed and the cylinder can be removed.
Clean all components.
Inspect all troughing rolls. They must turn freely in the frames. If any do not turn
freely, replace them with new
ones. If the outside shell of the roll is worn flat or has holes it should be replaced.
Inspect the trough frame to determine if it is bent or damaged. Repair or replace if necessary.
Inspect all return rolls. The shaft must turn freely. The outside shell of the roll should not be worn flat or have
holes. Replace the roll if the shaft does not turn freely or if the shell is damaged.
Inspect all pillow block bearings. If the seals are damaged or leak grease or if the bearing does not rotate
smoothly, replace the bearing.
Inspect the pulley shafts for damage and to determine if they are straight.
Inspect the pulley end plates for damage or cracks. Repair or replace the pulley if either end plate is damaged.
Inspect the pulley bushings. If any are damaged, cracked or worn, replace them.
