GN solids control choose Italy Oli brand vibrating motor for all our shale shakers. Vibration motor is important components for shale shaker, I will introduce briefly about vibrating motor installation & maintenance.

1 How to install vibrating motor ?

 (1). Before installing vibrator, turn off and lock out/tag out all energy sources to mounting structure according to ANSI standards。

(2). If using a cutting torch or welding, test atmosphere for gas level or dust content.

(3). Make sure mounting surface is strong and flat, 0.25 mm acros vibrator feet. (This will minimize internal stress to vibrator casting when tightening mount bolts.

(4) Make sure mounting surface and vibrator are clean and free of debris, paint, and oxidation.

(5) Before installing vibrator onto mount, apply thread sealing compound to all bolts.

(6) After the vibrator has been operated for 10 to 20 minutes, check bolt torque. Tighten if necessary

2 How to  maintain  vibrating motor?

(1)Clean dust on shell regularly

(2)Before operating, must check the bolts to confirm whether there is loose or not. Otherwise, we must screw bolts tight before running shaker

(3) Inspect the cable, whether there is wear, hold down, crushing, etc.

(4) the vibration motor should be under good lubrication during operation:

Motors before fixed on shaker, the bearing is filled with SKF specific lubricate grease, the temperature range is -40 ~ 200℃

During running, every 2000 working hours user should makeup LGHP2 lubricate grease once. Every bearing can not be filled over 25.8g.

How to use a vibrator of shale shaker, it contains two keys: disassembly of the bibrator of shale shaker, reassembly of shale shaker. And you need exactly remmber that disconnect power to the electric motor and lock the disconnect swithch in the open position.

Disassembly of the Vibrator of Shale Shaker
WARNING: Disconnect power to the electric motor and lock the disconnect swithch in the open position.

Shale Shaker Motor

Shale Shaker Motor

1. Remove motor and drive pulley guard.
2. Remove the counterweight guard from both ends of the vibrator shaft.
3. Loosen the four motor support bolts located under the motor, loosen the V-belts and remove them.
4. Remove the V-belt sheave , by first loosening its taper lock hub.
5. Remove the counterweights , by removing the clamp screws and reusing the screw to open the slots in the counterweights, by tightening the screws into the tapped holes.
6. Remove the collars  and the retainers  with the Spiro lox rings  in their grooves. Remove cartridge cap screws.
7. Remove retaining ring  from the drive side only. By striking on one end of the shaft  with a lead hammer or a hammer and a block of hardwood, it is possible to start to drive out the cartridge  on the other side.
8. Then it should be easy to pry either or both cartridges loose from their bores in the housing ends. If difficulty is experienced a cartridge can be bumped from the inside by striking the shaft again at the other end. When one cartridge is removed the shaft can be slipped from the housing.
