In order to facilitate shipment, the eccentric shaft, shaker frame, connecting rod, shaker bar arm, and shaker drive have
been assembled to each other, but removed from the dust collector housing. Bolt the shaker frame to the housing using
felt with cement on both sides between the connection. Use button head cap screws with the heads inside the collector.
Bolt the shaker bar arm to the shaker bar, making sure the connecting rod is adjusted so the shaker channels are level
when the eccentric is on dead center. Be sure to tighten both lock nuts on the eccentric bearing. Bolt the shaker drive
guard in place, again using felt with cement on both sides in the connection. Inspection and maintenance can be done
through the cover plate in the shaker guard, but be sure to replace the plate before operating the collector.
For installation of Dustubes, consult the attached instructions.
Refer to the wiring drawing and bulletins in this manual. Shaker and exhauster motor controls should be wired separately,
but an interlock should be provided so that the two motors cannot operate at the same time. Conduit for the shaker motor
should be run through the hole in the bottom of the shaker frame, fastening to both sides of the frame with lock nuts.
Tap two holes for 1/8" standard pipe on the front or either end of the collector, one just above the cell plate level (clean air
side), and the other just below the cell plate level (dirty air side). Screw fittings, #4340, through the wall sheets into 1/8"
pipe elbows, with the elbows pointing downward. Run tubing from these connections to the manometer, which is to be
fastened to the wall sheet flange with bracket #138874. The manometer may be mounted elsewhere, but additional tubing
may be necessary. Fill the manometer according to instructions furnished with it.
