|Frequently Asked Questions|
What should the air pressure be on the plant?Baghouse Cleaning: 90 psi
All Solenoids: 100-120 psi
Belt Scrapers w/Air: 20 psi
What is the normal tension for the drag conveyor?3/4" to 1" of deflection between two idlers.
What oil goes in the gear box?We put Teristic 150 in most of the gearboxes. The Browning gearbox on the airlocks
gets 90 weight. Sumitomo feeder drives get ISO 220.
What is the clearance on the double tips?Measure from the drum shell out to the edge of the tip. It should be 16-1/2".
What is the torque for the Double Barrel® tips and shanks?The shank bolts are grade 5 and should torque to 250 lbs.
The tip bolts are grade 8 and should torque to 350 lbs.
How tight should the drum drive chain be?Tighten the chain until it comes up against the guide. Then compress the springs
until you have 18" -- 1/4" between the spring coils.

What should my fuel or gas pressure be on my burner?Fuel: 30-60 psi
Gas: 1-3 psi
Propane: 180 psi
The fuel viscosity should be 80 to 90 ssu.
Why is my A/C running high?There are several possible causes, including:
Belt scale or A/C calibration.
Material sticking to the belt because the scraper is not working/
Moisture not set correctly.
Why will my A/C pump not put out as much A/C as it used to?Several possible causes include:
