Once shot blasting machine and abrasive are received, user must be willing to put equipment into production soon.
This article will take spinner hanger type shot blasting machine for example and guide user to finish installation and debugging before mass production.
For other types of machines, like tumble belt shot blasting machine, drum type shot blasting machine and rotary table shot blasting machine, that can be also used as reference.
>> Assembling <<
Limited by transportation condition, the machine is usually disassembled into several parts and transported to the user’s site for installation. Although pit is not required, that is necessary to prepare solid foundation. After placement and adjustment of chamber body, the foundation can be treated, and the nuts of the anchor bolts can be tightened after solidification. Then other parts will be assembled according to installation drawing.
>> Checking <<
Check the rotation direction of all electric motors.
Check all screws and clamping connection parts.
Check all bearing and parts requiring lubrication.
Check all sealing parts
Run every part separately and check whether there is unusual noise and vibration.
Check other related issues.
>> Adjusting <<
Control cage mouth position
The correct mouth position of control cage can guarantee abrasive stream covering surface of workpiece as much as possible, so as to ensure the cleaning effect and reduce wear of wear-resistant parts in chamber. The method is to place a steel plate or wooden board facing the exit of blasting wheel at the position where the workpiece is hung, then start the blast wheel, fill a small amount of abrasive into the abrasive pipe. After downtime, check the steel plate whether the blasting area is satisfied. If not, adjust the control cage clockwise or counterclockwise gradually and test until it fits.
Mark the position of control cage mouth as a basis for future spare parts replacement.
Bucket elevator belt
Tighten the belt of the elevator to the proper tightness to avoid deviation.
Other related parts requiring adjustment.
>> Testing <<
No-load test for 2 to 3 hours to check whether all parts can work coordinately.
Load test to check whether final processing effect is satisfied.
Above only shows general procedures for reference. In actual operation, some other problems may be faced also. User should keep timely and effective communication with the supplier.
Hope this article is helpful to you.
