Filter belt installation instructions                                                   

1.Ensure the tank is empty of oil and that the structure is cool before commencing work.  Before maintenance work on the belt can be carried out please release the tension mechanisms as advised by the technical handbook for the equipment (see diagrams 1a and 1b).

2. Prior to removing the belt it is best practice to remove the scraper assembly. Then continue by disconnecting the 2 chain edge connecting links and draw out the mesh connecting pin through the “alligator” connectors to open the belt. Ensure that all parts are collected to prevent them from falling into the machine. Remove the belt carefully.

3. Now gently feed the new belt into the machine, ensuring that the chain edge is properly engaging the sprockets. Once the belt is in place insert the mesh connecting pin (as shown in diagram 2), gently tapping by hand the “alligator” connectors as the pin is inserted

4. Reconnect the filter belt by means of chain connecting links and the fastening clips (diagrams 3 & 4).

5. You can now re-tension the filter belt, where necessary, in accordance with the manufacturers technical handbook.  Once you have ensured that you have left no tools or debris on the belt you can restart the machine, whilst monitoring the belt to ensure correct performance.  When the belt runs smoothly and without catching, re-fit the scraper assembly in accordance with the manufacturer's technical manual.
