SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR THE INSTALLATION & MAINTAINENCE OF


POWERCON EQUIPMENTS

RECOMMENDATION FOR REDUCING HAZARDS WHEN INSTALLLING


EQUIPMENT

MOUNTING – Foundations and supports must provide an adequate anchorage


POWERCON’ S machine and any ancillary equipment to which it may be connected.
Subsidence or Subsequent movement of the machine during operation will result in
excessive wear of both haulage chain and casing. Details on identification and the correct
initial alignment of the machine and supports are dealt within detail in the main part of
manual.

LIFTING – Due to the essential bulky nature of most of the component parts
involved in the erection of a plant of this kind, lifting gar will be extensively used. In
correct lifting technique will not only result in damage to the product, but also
possible injury to the operative. Always sling the load correctly using any lifting
points, which may be provided. Never exceed the S. W. L point, which must be
marked on all types of lifting gear.

ELECTRICAL CABLING – all cabling must be carried in a manner, which in all


respects meets the requirements appropriate local and national regulation. Always check
and follow all special requirements demanded by site condition or user specification.
The cross sectional area of cables and wires must be adequate to carry the required
current without raising their temperature above the recommended limit and without
exceeding the allowable voltage drop. Always allow adequate ventilation around the
machine giving special attention to the ambient operating temperature, type of enclosure,
and any other source of heat. All connections, including those of earthen conductors,
must be secured against accidental loosening.

GAURDS - properly designed guard affording complete protecting for all shaft
extensions, couplings and drives are an integral part of all POWERCON Machine. If, by
client’s request, the machine is supplied without drives, the onus is placed upon the client
to supply fit, adequate guarding once the drive is installed. Always isolate the machine
electrically before component, trained person taking al l appropriate precautions to
prevent any accidental contact with the moving parts of the machine must perform
removing any guard and never leave moving parts doors or panels.

FUNCTIONING OF EQUIPMENTS.

The POWERCON make conveyors an effective screw feeder must have the inlet filled
at all times. The design of the flight pitches under the inlet will control the product draw
down in the inlet and subsequent product loading in the conveying portion of the housing
after the inlet. There will always be a section of shroud after the inlet. This creates a
round conveying path that the screw draws through. With this round conveying path the
screw can only convey the material that has fallen into the flight pocket in the inlet.
Material flow into the inlet of the screw feeder is also critical. The screw feeder can not
meter material out of the inlet unless the material uniformly fills the flight pockets in the
inlet.

On a screw feeder, product degradation, product compaction and equipment wear are all
considerations. Particular care needs to be taken with the layout of the progressive pitch
flights through the inlet and under the shroud as well as the length and shape of the
displacement pipe sleeve or cone in the inlet section.

TROUBLE SHOOTING –

1. High current – Drawing by Motor –

If the conveyors motor is drawing abnormal current during normal course of


operation , please check up the alignment of related in put coupling in between motor
and gear box. Before that checkup the no load current of motor i.e. run the motor
without any unit coupling. If the motor gives still high current than –check up
electrically.

2. Nose level increase in Geared Unit –

The noise level in geared unit may also increase because of disturbance in
aligemement in between main screw shaft and out put shaft of Geared unit. Make sure
the proper alignment in between screw shaft and out put of geared unit. Before that
checkup the unit for idle condition along with motor , if the noise level is abnormal
than , refer to the supplier of Geared unit if the unit is under guarantee period.

3. Abnormal vibration-
The abnormal vibration is due to miss alignment in between coupling areas like motor
to gear box or gear box to main screw shafts. Check proper aliment step by step and
find out the misalignment area. The vibration could be because on imbalance in screw
shaft area. The same can be rectified by balancing the screw shaft.

4. Jamming of Screw –
The Jamming of screw may cause because of uncontrolled in put of material , i.e.
sudden over loading , Discharge area may got choke up etc. Open the cover and find
out the reason above and run the equipment once again gradually.

5. Heavy wear tear to trough –


The trough wear could only because of rubbing of screw shaft to main trough due to
misaligemenment or bend of main screw. After opening the main trough cover, check up
the run out of main screw. And find the reason of rubbing of trough , if the shaft is
run out , should get repaired etc.

LUBRICATION POINTS-

The units are generally supplied duly grease and oil filled up while dispatching
the material , but during transships at idle period of actual utilization of equipment,
the oil or grease levels / qty may not be sufficient. So while commissioning the
equipment it is always advisable to check up oil and grease levels respectively in
geared unit and Plummer block and bearing assemblies.

The following items should be checkup for proper lubrication-

1. PLUMMER BLOC AT DRIVE and NON DRIVE END ASSLY-

Normally drive end assembly Plummer blocks are supplied with proper grease qty,
but due to dust , high atmospheric temperature the qty may reduce , so qty should be
top up with opening of Plummer block assembly or should be top up by grease
gun. The recommended grease grade is SERVO makes GEM RR 3 for bearing.

2. GEAR BOX UNIT –

Normally Gear box assembly are supplied with proper oil qty, but due to
leakage in transits or leakage in body in course of time the oil level get reduced
to the required level. Also the visciocity of oil gets change due to continuous use ,
So it is advisable to maintain and replace the lubricant oil periodically as
recommended in Maintenance chart. The proper oil level can be visualized by
indicating level glass gauge or immersion gauge level indicator. The oil level can be
top up within running by opening the top cover inlet. Avoid high level of lubricant ,
this will increase the heat inside unit due to unwanted rotation of oil.
The recommended oil grade is SERVO make MESH 320.

DISMENTALING & REASSEMBALIES-

The units can be dismantle in annual maintenance schedule by following steps –

1. Isolate the machine electrically.


2. Decouple the coupling – in between input and out put shaft by proper unscrew of
grub screw and using bearing puller. Thus the geared unit and Motor can be
separated from main assemblies.
3. By removing Plummer block and Spherical roller bearing using proper
instruments like bearing puller etc the bearing can be take out.
4. Once the bearing with housing are taken out of main screw , The end plate
cover of either side i.e. drive or non Drive side the main screw can be slide
down completely out of trough.
5. The dismantling sequence should be used to reversely to assemble the equipment.

By normally checks unit should put once again on Load.
