stoppage while the machine is running.
Stop the equipment, lock out and tag out
before touching this machine with your
tools or your hands.
Wear proper personal protective
equipment, including eye protection,
hearing protection, hard hat, safety
glasses and safety shoes, whenever
youre near this machine while it is
running.
Dress appropriately in every way. Never
wear loose clothes, long hair, coat tails,
jewelry, pockets full of tools, or any other
item that could get caught in moving parts.
Know where your fellow workers are at all
times. Always look around and inside this
machine before starting it. Make sure
nobody is in the way of moving parts or
working on the machine.

Lifting Heavy Objects


Operator Responsibilities
Read all danger, warning, caution, and
notice signs. Always lock out and tag out
equipment upstream and downstream
before performing maintenance activities
or adjustments. Make it impossible for
anyone to start this machine while others
are working on it or in it.
Never remove any guard, cover, or shield
when this equipment is in motion.
Replace guards, covers and shields when
the task for which you removed them is
finished. Block parts as necessary to
prevent their sudden movement while
people are working on the machine.
Never attempt to clear away jammed feed

When lifting heavy objects there are some


basic concepts which should not only be
followed in the workplace, but at all times.
Lift with your legs, not with your back.
Keep the weight close to your body. This
keeps the pressure of the load off your
lower back and prevents injuries. When
faced with a load that is more than 40 lbs,
get someone to help you.

Work Area Safety

Equipment & Tools

Never engage in horseplay when near


this, or any other, machine.
Immediately report any defective
machinery, equipment, unsafe conditions,
or activity to your supervisor or anybody
else in a position of authority.
Dont limit safety practices to the few rules
listed here. Think safety and act safely at
all times. Most of all, know your
equipment. Understand the machinery as
well as the conditions under which it
operates and what it is capable of doing.
Keep the work area as neat and clean as
practical.
Keep all product safety signs clean, clear
and be sure you have the current version.
Make sure all electrical equipment is
properly grounded. Wet spots near
electrical currents are especially
dangerous.
Store hazardous materials in clearly
marked, restricted access areas. Federal
regulations require special labeling of
certain materials.
Know where fire extinguishers and other
fire suppression equipment are located.
Learn how to use them effectively.
Be alert and wary around any pressurized
system, whether it be hydraulic or
pneumatic. High-pressure oils and gases
are very dangerous.

Clean tools that are properly labeled and


stored are safer tools. Keep your tools in
good order.
Keep drive belts and sheaves in good
condition. Frayed belts or cracked
sheaves are not only dangerous, they
result in costly downtime.
Always use mechanical assistance to lift
heavy loads. Never overload a hoist,
crane, jack, or other lifting device. Check
lifting tackle regularly and replace it at the
first sign of stretch, fraying or other wear.
Keep your equipment clean, free of dirt
and grease, so that loose, cracked or
broken parts are more easily spotted.
Replace defective parts as soon as they
are discovered.

What is Lockout & Tagout?


Lockout & Tagout is a procedure thats
designed to prevent the unexpected or
accidental start-up of equipment and to
alert all workers whenever it is unsafe to
operate any piece of equipment.
When done properly, Lockout & Tagout also
protects personnel from an unexpected
release of the energy stored in devices
such as springs, accumulators, batteries,
hydraulic systems, etc.

Section 3 - Set Up

Handling

Refer to your site plan or contact your


Terex Simplicity distributor for guidance in
determining the best location and required
clearances for the machine and related
equipment.

Your Terex Simplicity Screen will have


lifting holes at each corner support bracket
for lifting the machine. Cable suspended
units use the suspension bracket for lifting.
Use chains or cables of sufficient length
so that strain is not applied to the side
plates. If short chains are used, then a
spreader beam must be used to prevent
damage to the side plates. See Figure 3-1,
below. Remember that your sling capacity
decreases as the angle of lifting
decreases. Lifting devices must be used
according to proper commercial practice.
Refer to the bill of lading or specification
for the weight of your vibrating screen to
make sure you do not exceed the lifting
capacity of your equipment.

Receive and Inspect the Plant

Make sure the Machine Start-Up


Report & the Delivery Inspection
Form (located in the front of this
manual) is completed, signed, and
returned in order to initiate the
Terex Simplicity warranty period.
Usually, your service representative
fills out the form and you complete
the bottom of the second page.
When the machine is delivered, thoroughly
check for any damage that might have
occurred during transport. Do not move the
unit until the inspection is complete.
Write down any damage on the shippers
bill of lading and have the truck driver
initial your description of the problem(s).
Keep a copy of the marked-up bill of
lading for your files. Take photos, if
possible. A photo record of any damage
will be important if there is any challenge to
your claim.
File a damage claim form with the carrier
within 30 days of receipt of the equipment.
Check loose parts, small-parts boxes, and
tools against the packing list to make sure
that all items are included.

Do not use any part of the shaft


assembly when lifting your screen.

Planning
Your Terex Simplicity Screen can be
purchased to be installed on a substructure, supported from overhead by
cables, or a combination of these
methods.
1. The standard Screen is supplied with
springs and spring base plates only.
A support structure must be furnished
along with a support for the motor
base.
2. A catwalk or service platform should
be provided on both sides of the
screen for observation and servicing.
3. If you plan to overhaul the assembly
in place, provision on one side of the
screen should be made for the
eccentric shaft removal. This
generally should be the width of the
screen, plus approximately three (3)
feet.
4. Overhead lifting provision should be
made for repair.
5. Plan necessary feeding devices,
spray pipes, collection hoppers or
chutes simultaneously with the
screen installation. Allow for
adjustment and removal of these for
service on the screen. (See notice at
top of next column)

Screens

To remove the support springs,


enough clearance must be provided
to raise the screen to clear the
spring pilots, (approximately 6"
8"). We suggest putting a 6" high,
bolt in spacer or raiser block under
the coil spring base plate. If this is
done, coil spring replacement is
much easier.
6. On Oscillating Screens, the drive
mechanism may have to be removed
for repairs. Proper provisions should
be made for removal of the drive.
7. Allow room for deck removal, which
generally can be provided at the
discharge end by removing
discharge chutes. However, the
decks can be removed from either
end.
8. An adequate power source and water,
if required, should be available.
9. Install and connect all electrical
components and motors according to
local electrical codes.

Storage
If you do not plan to install and put into
operation within two to three weeks after
receiving, take the procedures indicated
below to insure safe storage of the screen.
1. Place the screen in a building which
has a constant temperature and a
relatively low humidity.
2. If open storage is required, the
following steps are necessary to
protect the screen from corrosion due
to moisture condensation:

Page 3-2

Set Up

2.1 Cover the screen cloth to prevent


damage. It may be advantageous
to cover the entire screen.
2.2 Paint any bare metal or scratches.
2.3 On grease lubricated shaft
assemblies, periodically pump
recommended grease into bearing
housing while rotating by hand.
Before putting screen into operation
after extended storage, flush
bearing with warm oil and regrease with recommended
lubricant.
2.4 On oil-bath shaft assemblies, for
long-term storage greater than 30
days, it is recommended to use a
corrosion inhibitor mixed with the
oil. Corrosion inhibitor is used to
protect the internal drive parts
thereby minimizing the damage
from corrosion, which will lead to
premature bearing failure.
Breathers must be replaced with
solid pipe plugs after the
inhibitor is added. The inhibitor
protection is good for one year. Two
other methods are as follows:
A. On horizontal units with oil sight
gauges, the oil should be half
way on the sight glass when unit
is setting flat. Periodically rotate
the assembly by hand to relubricate the bearing rollers. Be
sure the unit is setting level from
side to side to insure that the oil
level is the same on both sides. If
setting out of level, the oil could
run to the low side and uncover
the high-bearing rollers.

Screens

On Simpli-Flo units the oil will not be


half way on the sight glass when
setting on the ground or on truck during
transport. If the breather is in the feed
end drive, oil will leak out.
B. Fill the assembly completely full of
oil, including the center shaft
housing, even if the drive
assembly has oil in the covers
only. After storage, drain the oil
and replace with proper oil before
putting the screen back into
operation. (See Lubrication
Section in Section 4, for proper oil
selection)
2.5 If the storage area is subject to
vibration, care should be taken to
isolate the screen.
2.6 Take corrective action if there is
any indication of rust or corrosion.
2.7 On Four-Bearing units, block the
vibrating frame to relieve the load on
the main bearing and/or rubber-inshear mounts.

Storage After Operation


Use the same instructions for the assembly
as stated in the above, with the following
procedures:
1. Lockout and tag out the machine.
2. Relieve the tension on the v-belts by
blocking the pivot motor base up.
Place paper between the belts and
sheaves. This will prevent sticking.

To insure safe screen operation, all
installation and support structure designs
should be prepared and approved by
qualified engineers.

Two or more units running at the same


speed setting side by side in the same
structure can become synchronized
and will cause excess vibration in the
structure.

Floor Mounted
The design of the support structure
requires:
1. The angle of recommended setting.
See installation drawing for
dimensions. An adjustment of +/- 3
degrees should be considered in your
design.
2. The structure to be strong enough to
support the static and dynamic load
at stopping. Refer to data on
installation drawing.
3. The natural frequency of the support
structure to be above the screen
running speed by a factor of 2-1/2
times.
4. The structure must be braced to
minimize vibration.Excessive vibration
in a screen support system wastes
energy and causes a serious loss of
screening efficiency. If possible,
support screen base frame directly
below support springs (Figure 2).

Cable Suspension
A suspended Screen has four mounting
brackets located near the top edge of the
screen side plates. The suspension parts
consists of the following: cable,
compression springs, top and bottom
mounting plates, suspension rod, cable
thimbles, cable clamps and cable weights.

When a machine is cable suspended,


auxiliary safety cables and electrically
interlocked failure switches are
recommended for safety of personnel
working in the area.
The proper cable and springs are supplied
with your suspension parts, but due to
other contributing factors, you should
compute the allowable cable loads, taking
the following into consideration:
1. The actual weight of the vibrating
screen, including all the auxiliary
equipment that may be attached to
the screen.
2. Material loads on all screening
surfaces are assumed to be six
inches (6") deep.
3. Add 40% to the above totals to take
care of any external impact load,
change in screen weight, overloads
and dynamic load at stopping.

Page 3-4

Set Up

The maximum allowable load for one


suspension cable is indicated below:
1/2" diameter = 3500#
5/8" diameter = 5000#
3/4" diameter = 8000#
General information on cable suspension
arrangements are shown in Figure 3-3,
below.
The following items should be checked
when using cable suspension:
1. Wire rope and fittings must be
assembled according to proper
commercial practices.
2. The support points for cables must be
located so that the cables are vertical
or at a slight angle when the screen is
in operating position.

3. Ample clearance around the


suspension rod must be allowed to
prevent wear.
4. The feed end cable should have a
minimum of four feet (4) between
support eyes. Long cables tend to
whip on vibrating screens and cause
failures. To correct this, weights may
be attached to the cable. The location
of the weights varies. You should start
at the midpoint, moving the weight up
or down, and determine by trial and
error the best location. Replace any
frayed cables.
5. Tag lines may be required to maintain
the screen in proper location with the
drive and chutes. A tension spring and
cable arrangement, to be supplied by
the customer, should be used.

material can be handled and still remove
the available undersize to meet required
standards. Consult the factory before
changing the angle of inclination.
The recommended angle of operation is
given in the specifications and is based on
general material characteristics and screen
ability. Your product and specification may
not fit into this category so a built-in

Inclination
If youve purchased an Inclined Terex
Simplicity Screen, it depends on
gravitational force to assist in propulsion
of the material. Therefore, the screen must
set at an angle for good screening. The
inclination is determinded from the
installation drawing provided. It normally
ranges from 15 and 25 degrees. The

adjustment of +/- 3 degrees in the design of


your support structure, feed, and discharge
chutes would be to your advantage.
In most good screening applications, 75%
of the undersize material passes in the first
25% of the screen deck.
The bed depth should be kept to a
maximum of four (4) times the screen cloth
opening. Also, note that the increase in
inclination decreases the effective screen
cloth opening, which results in a finer
separation. It may be necessary to
increase the screen cloth opening size.

Installing the Screen


Check the total weight of your screen to
insure you do not exceed the lifting capacity
of your equipment. Do not use any part of
the shaft assembly for lifting. The screen
support structure should be completed per
the instructions on planning the installation,
as previously discussed in this manual.
Your Terex Simplicity Screen has lifting
holes in the corner support brackets. Use
cable or chains of different lengths, with
the shorter ones on the feed end, to lift the
screen at the approximate angle the screen
should operate. This angle is shown on the
installation drawing.
This operating angle may be gauged when
lifting by looking at the discharge end of the
side plate which will be close to
perpendicular to the ground. Do not use
this as a check gauge when mounting the
screen. This operating angle should be
checked on the top deck. Care should be
taken not to damage the side plates. A
spreader beam may be required to hold the
cable or chains away from the side plate.

Screens

Set the support springs at the four corners


on the base plates guides. Lower the
screen carefully onto the springs, making
sure all pilots engage the springs before
the full weight of the screen is allowed on
the springs. If a spring has not engaged
properly, adjust it with a nylon hammer or
pry bar.
Do not use your hands to adjust springs.
Do not disconnect the lifting cables until
all springs have been checked for
alignment.
Check the screen after installation across
the width at both ends to make sure that it
is level. Add shims as necessary to level
the machine. An out of level machine
will cause material to travel to the low side
of the machine and can create stresses in
the body of the screen, which could lead
to catastrophic failure.
When mounting a cable suspended screen,
the suspension cables should be made up
and attached to the suspension brackets on
each corner of the screen. The excess
cable should be laid on the screen deck.
The unit must be level across the width on
both ends when in operating position.

V-belt Drive
Most Terex Simplicity Screens come with
a pivot-type motor base. This base must
be mounted on a support structure. See
your installation drawing for location.
The motor center is mounted approximately
1-1/2" to 2" behind the motor base pivot
shaft toward the springs. This usually
provides enough counterweight to keep the
v-belts at proper tension.
A properly mounted motor should be
horizontal. The springs provided are
snubber springs to restrict the motor from
going past center when the screen stops.
These springs should be compressed just
enough so they dont rattle. There are four
(4) heavy-duty flat washers mounted on top
of the springs. These washers are
mounted here for shipping only and
should be removed and used on the
foundation bolts as shown in figure 3-7.

Figure 3-7 - Motor Base


The machine and motor sheaves supplied
with your screen are special deep-groove
sheaves. The belt size is indicated on your
certified drawing. If a different motor
sheave is required for a speed change, the
sheave should be ordered from your dealer
or the factory. Standard sheaves of the next
larger belt size will not line up properly.

Screens

Do not change speed of unit without


first contacting factory engineers.
The belt guard supplied will have to be
supported on the same plane as the motor
base. Care should be taken to allow
enough clearance around the guard when
the machine starts and stops.
The v-belt size is shown on your certified
drawing. The drive components, belt
guard, machine and motor sheave are
designed to use this belt size, so check the
belt size against the size shown on the
drawing.

Direction of Rotation
Some Terex Simplicity Screens can
rotate in either direction, with or against the
flow. Rotation with the flow of material is
used when a large volume of material and a
high percentage of oversize material are
being handled. The efficiency of the
screen may be lower with the flow of
rotation. Counter flow rotation usually
gives more efficient screening but less
volume.
The motor base is located to operate with
the flow. If counter flow operation is
required, then the snubber spring must be
tighter to restrict the motor at starting.

Water Cooled Shaft Assemblies


In an extremely hot atmosphere, a watercooled assembly may be required to cool
the bearings. This is an option that should
be ordered with the screen. However, this
option is not available on all models.
Check with us for availability.

Page 3-10

Set Up

These are two methods that we use for


water cooling:
1. The end castings on the shaft housing
have a water passage. These
castings are drilled and tapped with
pipe threads and are furnished with
pipe plugs. Each side must be
hooked up to a water supply and a
drain.
2. Assemblies with oil lubrication will
have a complete jacket around the
shaft housing. There is an inlet and
outlet pipe flange on each end of the
housing water supply and drain to be
attached with flexible lines to one
side only. The opposite side to be
plugged with pipe plugs.
3. Use only clean water to cool the shaft
assembly at a rate of 3 to 5 gallons
per minute.
4. The heat exchanger (water cooled
shaft housing or end castings) should
be flushed thoroughly each time
assembly is overhauled or at least
once every 10-12 months. Restriction
in water flow rate will aversely affect
bearing life.

capacity and minimize screen cloth


maintenance, the following steps should
be reviewed:
1. The material should enter the feed
area along a line parallel to the
center line of the screen. A 90
feeding arrangement should be
avoided.
2. Feed the material at a uniform rate
with even distribution across the
width of the screen.
3. Conveyors or other feeding devices
should not feed directly onto the
screen cloth. A stationary feed box or
other retarding method is needed to
slow the material as it enters the
screen. Refer to Figure 3-8 below.
Keep in mind the material size and
drop distance when setting up the
feed arrangement.

The lines should be drained to prevent


freezing when shut down during cold
weather. You should never put a shut
off valve in the drain line. If steam
pressure is allowed to build up, it could
cause serious damage to the weldment.

The most important part of your screen
installation is the feeding arrangement. In
order to efficiently utilize the screen
Screens

4. Chutes or non-vibrating feed boxes


distributing the material to the screen
should be at least six (6) inches
narrower than the deck.
5. The feeding device should be about 35, depending on the size of screen.
See installation drawing for
recomendations. An optional
vibrating feed box is available.

Page 3-11

Chutes & Hoppers


When designing the feed chutes and/or
boxes, discharge chutes, fines hopper,
any dust enclosure, you must allow a
three to five inch (3-5) minimum clearance
for the exaggerated motion when starting
and stopping. The screen body must not
touch any stationary object under any
circumstance. This includes any possible
accumulation of material in the corners of
the fines hoppers or in a product chute.

need to be cleared out everyday when


operating in temperatures below 32F.

Walkways
Walkways should be provided so your
operators can observe the performance of
the vibrating screen. These walkways
should be designed as work platforms to
be used to perform routine maintenance,
change screen cloth, and to repair the
assembly. Repairs will be made less
costly if access is convenient.

Spray Pipes & Wet Screening


Under no circumstances should
additional components be added to the
vibrating body without approval of
Terex Simplicity.

Discharge Chutes
The chutes handling the oversize material
must have sufficient slope to prevent
material hang-up. This is usually 60 from
the horizontal. Enclosed chutes must
have a minimum depth of four (4) times the
maximum particle size. Provision in your
design should be made for easy access to
the screen cloth for removal. These could
be hinged or easily lifted away.

Fines Hoppers
A fines hopper collects the throughproduct of the bottom deck. The design of
this hopper should be such that material
will not collect in the valleys and build up,
thus interfering with the screen. This
valley angle is usually a minimum of 45.
An access should be provided for
entrance into the hopper and to the
underside of the screen. Fines build up will
Screens

There are two types of spray pipe


arrangements, vibrating and non-vibrating.
If non-vibrating spray pipe arrangement is
used, the hole in your side plate must be
larger. Whichever type of spray system
used, you must be sure the drive assembly
can be easily worked on. This could
possibly mean removal of the spray pipe
manifold. The spray pipe hoses on the
vibrating type must have enough extra
length to them so they do not restrict the
starting and stopping of the unit.
Do not burn holes in the side plates to
provide openings for spray pipes. Torch cut
holes induce stresses in the area around
the hole, which could lead to cracking of the
side plate. If the spray bar holes are not
ordered with the unit, use a hole saw to cut
these openings and dress the edges.
On wet screening the material may come to
the screen in a slurry or dry form. Prewetting of dry material may be required,
which can be accomplished in a stationary
feed box.

Page 3-12

Set Up

Further washing or rinsing is usually done


with spray bars. The sprays are generally
directed against the flow of material at an
angle up to approximately 45. However,
the spray nozzles are adjustable and should
be adjusted so the spray does not stop the
flow of material and to give you the best
cleaning action. The number, size and
spacing is dependent on type of material,
material feed and water available. As a
rule of thumb guide, 3-5 G.P.M. of water on
the screen, for every ton per hour of feed is
sufficient. The water should be on the high
side if clay is present.

Figure 3-9 - Take-ups

The water spray should be adjusted so


it is not spraying directly on pipe
crossmember in the deck.
Keep in mind when determining the water
requirements that it is easier to valve down
than to find additional water capacity. The
water pressure should be determined at the
nozzle rather than at the pump (usually
around 30-35 psi.

Screen Cloth Tension


The tensioning of the screen cloth is very
important. Improper screen cloth tension
will cause premature failure and decrease
screen efficiency. If the cloth sags, or the
material boils, the screen cloth is loose
and has to be re-tensioned.
The screen tensioning method consists of
take-up rails with carriage bolts or wedge
assemblies. See Figure 3-9 .

Screens

Adjust new screen cloth after the first


four (4) hours of operation as the
screen tends to stretch.

Follow the steps below when adjusting


screen tension:
1. Lock & Tag out machinery and make
sure the screen cloth is clear.
2. Loosen the take-up rail nuts/wedges
to assure that they are not frozen and
that correct tension can be attained.
3. Tighten the take-up nuts/wedges
equally from side to side until the
screen cloth is Drum Head tight. Be
sure not to over tighten the cloth
causing a tear. Tightening screen
cloth is an art more than a science,
and when tension is correct, the cloth
will have no sags. There should be
clearance between the screen side
plate and the screen cloth hook strips
to insure proper tension.

V-belt Adjustment w/Fixed Base


The V-belt should have enough tension to
prevent slipping. New V-belts should be retensioned after 24 to 48 hours of operation.
Slipping belts cause excessive wear on the
belts and sheaves. The following is the
acceptable method for checking belt
tension.
1.) Refer to Figure 3-4 below, measure
the span of the unsupported belt in
inches. This span is approximately the
drive center spacing (D).
2.) Determine the designed deflection
which is an amount equal to 1/64 of
each inch of span length. For
example: the deflection for a span of
36 would be 36/64 or 9/16.

3.) Using a spring scale and steel tape,


apply enough force at mid-span to
deflect the belt the desired amount.
Note this force and compare it with the
values in the table below (Figure 311). If the force is between the normal
tension (Column A) and maximum
tension (Column B), the drive tension
should be satisfactory. A new belt or
belt set should be tightened to 1.5
times normal tension.

Oil Sight Gauge Adjustment


If you have a Simpli-flo Screen, the oil sight
gauge was adjusted for the angle of
inclination that the screen will operate. If
the inclination is changed or the gauge
moved in shipment, the gauge must be recalibrated. The following steps are
required. Refer to Figure 3-12.
1. Check on the bottom of the shaft
housing to make sure the unit is level
from side to side.
2. Remove the 1/4" oil check plug, float
side or the side with the oil level
gauge. Pipe plug is at the bottom of
the outer seal retainer.
3. Add proper lubrication oil at breather
on the drive side. Allow time for the oil
to travel the width of the screen and
run out the 1/4" check plug. Allow the
oil to slow to a drip.
4. Replace 1/4" check plug and breather.
Oil level should be half way or center

In addition to the items shown under Daily


Maintenance, check the following:
1. Inspect the V-belts for wear and the
proper tension. Check the alignment
of the sheaves.
2. Clean the material from the belt guard.
3. Clean the material build-up from the
screen. Clean the material away from
the support springs, motor base and
all moving parts. Clean out all of the
hoppers and chutes of material buildup near the screen.
4. Check the pivot type motor base for
freedom of movement.
5. Check the suspension for broken
springs or worn support rubbers.
Check the rubber-in-shear mounts for
tearing or separating from the steel

6. Check the following items for wear or
damage; crown bar rubber, liners,
back plates, feed box, discharge lips,
take-up rails and side plates.
7. Lubricate the dust seals with grease
on oil lubricated units.

Instead of waiting for unusual noises or


happenings to warn you of impending
problems or failures, a periodic overhaul of
the screen is recommended. This will
avoid costly shut-down for repair.
After 5,000 to 10,000 hours of operation,
the following is recommended:
1. Conduct a detailed inspection of the
screen and all of its components for
wear and fatigue cracks.
2. Tear down the drive mechanism and
inspect all of the parts for wear so you
can project their serviceability for the
next 5,000 to 10,000 hours.
3. Factory trained servicemen are
available to assist you in the
maintenance of your unit. Call your

Maintaining adequate lubrication in your


machine is the most important maintenance
function. Many premature failures can be
traced to inadequate or improper
lubrication. Therefore, checking the
lubrication of your machine must be
scheduled into your daily maintenance.
Oil level in the end covers, or shaft housing
should be maintained at the center of the
sight glass provided. This level should be
checked before start-up and at regular
scheduled intervals.

Maintenance

Flushing procedure
Fill the mechanism to the proper level with
light EP oil and run the machine for
approximately fifteen (15) minutes.
Immediately drain the oil out of the machine
upon shutdown. This will pick up additional
contaminants that otherwise would have
remained in the system.

Your machine was shipped with breakin oil, therefore, you should change the
oil after the first forty (40) hours of
operation. This procedure should also
be followed if the machine has been
setting idle for an extended period of
time.
Regular lubricant changes should be
scheduled for every 300 to 500 hours of
operation or every thirty (30) days,
whichever comes first. This regular change
will rid the mechanism of any condensation
or contaminants that would cause trouble
later.
The oil should be drained immediately upon
shutdown so any contaminants are still
suspended and will easily flush out.
If, when draining the oil, contaminants are
noticed, it is highly recommended that you
also flush the mechanism with a light EP oil
(EP-2 or EP-3).

BEARING SIZE & RPM

Synthetic Oils
Synthetic oil provides superior bearing life
over a wider operating temperature range
than their petroleum counterparts. Terex
Simplicity recommends using the synthetic
Mobil products listed below in Figure 4-1,
or their equivalent. If a synthetic oil doesnt
fit your requirements, see the next page for
the proper ISO selection table (Figure 4-2).

Selecting an Oil Lubricant


Some guidelines that should be used in
selecting an oil lubricant are as follows:
1. The oil should be a high quality, nonoxidizing petroleum product.
2. The viscosity of the oil should not be
less that 105 SSU at the operating
temperatures.
3. The oil should have a Timken OK load
rating of 50 or more.
4. Oils containing viscosity index
improvers should not be used. (No
multiple viscosity)
5. Oils should have extreme pressure
characteristics and a high stability
against oxidation.
6. The oil must have neutralization
qualities that will prevent the oil from
attacking the highly polished surfaces
of the bearings during periods of
prolonged operation.
7. The oil must contain anti-foamant
agents.
8. The oil must be suitable for vibrating
applications.

Screens

9. Oils containing suspended solids


such as graphite and/or Molybdenum
Disulfide (MoS2) are not
recommended for vibrating equipment
applications.
10. In cases where extreme ambient
temperatures are experienced, (10 F
and below or 100 F and above) you
are advised to contact us with the
details of your application so that all
factors can be considered for a
proper lubricant selection.
Using the guidelines from the list above to
attain the proper quality of lubricant, the
following chart (Fig 4-2) will lead you to a
proper grade of lubricant for your
application. Using the bearing size,
operating speed and ambient temperature,
read across to find the recommended ISO
Grade Number. Units furnished with
automatic lubrication may have a
supplemental manual to cover the oil
circulator/cooler.

Rule of Thumb Viscosity Check


Some machines will operate at higher temperatures than expected. To ensure the proper oil is being
used, drain a small quantity of oil from the machine after it has heated up to operating temperature.
Use a thermometer to measure the temperature of this oil and use the chart below.

Hot oil could burn your skin.


Another way to do this would be to take the temperature of the bearing housing. The oil will generally
be 20o F hotter than the housing temperature. So a bearing housing temp of 185o F will give you an
oil temperature of 205o F. Use the chart below to make sure you have the correct oil. The chart is
based on a minimum of 105 SSUs. In marginal situations, use the next highest grade.

Grease Lubricated Machines

Cold Weather Operation

It is recommended that the customer


contact his lubrication dealer and purchase
grease that conforms to the following
specifications:
Lithium base grease with EP additive is
recommended.
The grease selected should not exhibit
thickening, separation of oil, acid formation
or hardening to any marked degree. It
should be smooth, non-fibrous and entirely
free from chemically active ingredients.
We do not recommend the use of grease
lubrication when the ambient temperature is
below 10 F. or above 100 and/or the
BEARING OPERATING TEMPERATURE
is above 190 F. If grease must be used at
or above bearing operating temperature of
190 F., use Mobil 1 synthetic grease which
is 1100 SSU at 100 F and 144 SSU at
210 F with frequent lubrication cycles at
least once every eight (8) hours of
operation.
Food grade greases are available from all
major suppliers. When selecting grease for
a food machine, the same guidelines will
apply.
Grease lubricated screens should be
lubricated at least once every ten (10) hours
of continuous running, or once every eight
(8) hour shift. See the Specification Sheet
for the recommended amount.

Grease lubricated mechanisms require


special care when operated in cold
weather. Even though the majority of
lubrication manufacturers recommend the
same grade of lubrication for both summer
and winter operation, thickened grease
may overload the motor. In severe cold
weather, we recommend lubricating the
mechanisms at mid-shift or noontime. If the
mechanism is lubricated at night or in the
morning before the unit is started up, it will
require additional horsepower to start the
mechanism. If preheating is necessary, we
recommend a series of heat lamps
directed towards the bearings and or shaft
assembly or a salamander-type heater
directed towards bearing and or shaft
assembly.

Automatic Lubrication Systems


Machines furnished with automatic
lubrication will have a supplemental manual
to cover the lubricator.

Screens

DO NOT use an acetylene torch. This


could cause an explosion or fire.
A motor overload may also be due to a
heavy concentration of grease in the shaft
housing. If this is the case, to completely
clean the shaft housing of all old grease, it
will be necessary to dismantle the
mechanism.
The following is a list of trade names of
lubricant manufacturers that conform to the
above specifications. Our selection of
these lubricants should in no way be
considered an endorsement of these
products exclusively. There are many other
equivalent and acceptable products that
may be used.

6. Remove personal jewelry before


working on equipment.
7. Before performing repairs or
scheduled maintenance, lockout the
screen and other equipment
pertaining to the screening operation.
8. Before the equipment is released for
operation, pick up all debris involved
in the repair including tools, used
parts, etc.

Section 5 - Operation
Operating Speed
The operating speed is shown in the
Specification Table I. This was determined
to give you the optimum bearing life and
screening performance at the stroke
provided. Increasing the speed will
increase the screening of your unit, but will
reduce the bearing life and increase the
stresses in the structural members.

Inspection Before Start-up


Before starting up the plant each day, check
the following items:
1. Check the oil level in the screen.

Do not change speed or stroke on


your screen without the approval
from Terex Simplicity. This will void
your warrenty.

Safety
Observe the following precautions during
repair, overhaul, maintenance and
operation of the machine.
1. Always keep the area clean around
the screen.
2. Before using cleaning solvents, read
and follow the safety precautions
printed on the containers. Never use
gasoline as a cleaning agent.
3. The area directly below the screen
should be closed off to protect other
personnel from falling objects.
4. All personnel working near the
equipment should wear approved
protective equipment.
5. An emergency stop switch and a start
warning system must be provided
near the screen.

2. Check breather caps(if applicable)


and remove any dirt buildup.
3. Look at the screen wire cloth to
determine if holes have worn through
the wire. Replace, as needed,
following the instructions in your
vibrating screen Owner/Operator
Manual.
4. Cleanup spilled material from around
the plant.
5. Record any observations about the
system in your plant log book.

Operation

6. Check all drive belts for proper


tensioning.
7. Check all guards for proper
installation.
8. E-stop switches untagged and set in
the off position (released).

Initial Start Up
Before starting the screen for the first time,
perform the following:
1. Lock & Tag Out machine.
2. Check the lubrication requirements
and level.
3. Check line voltage against motor
name plate voltage.
4. Check the angle of inclination and the
level across both ends of the screen.
5. Make sure all safety-guards are in
place.
6. The vibrating screen body should be
free of any obstructions.
7. Place the start/stop switch in the ON
position.
8. Listen for any unusual noise, such as
loose bolts, screen cloth, etc.
9. Check the screen motion for any
unusual pattern. This is done by the
following:
9.1.At each corner of the screen, attach
a white card with the top edge of the
card parallel with the ground. The
corner support bracket is usually
vertical to the ground so this would
be a good guide to line the side of

the card.
9.2.With a sharp pencil, lightly touch the
point to the card at 90. an elliptical
pattern will develop. You should take
three or four patterns at each corner.
A steady rest would be helpful for
this test.
9.3.Remove the cards and mark the
card location where the pattern was
taken, right, discharge, etc.
9.4.The patterns on each end of the unit
should be close to the same. If a
true pattern is difficult to obtain, then
a sidewise motion may be present.
Move to the end of the screen and
pick a spot, such as the top corner
of the side plate and see. If this
sidewise motion is present, contact
us.
10. Start the take-away equipment before
starting the material feed.

Operation

Normal Start Up

Shut-down

If the screen has been operated recently, it


is advisable to check the following items:
1. Lock & Tag Out machine.
2. The machine and screen cloth must
be clear of any material build-up. If the
screen is started with a material
buildup, damage to the cloth may
result.
3. Inspect the screen cloth for wear or
damage. Replace the cloth if
required.
4. Check screen cloth tension. Loose
cloth will fail prematurely.
5. Check for any loose bolts on the body
and shaft assembly.
6. Check for material build-up in
hoppers, chutes, etc. There must be
three (3) inches clearance between
the vibrating body and any
surrounding object.
7. Grease the bearings per Section 4Maintenance of this manual.
8. If the screen has provisions for heated
screen cloth, refer to the
manufacturers instructions in starting
the heat to the cloth.
9. Start all discharge equipment that
removes the material from the screen
before starting feed.
10. Place the start/stop switch in the
ON position.
11. Listen for any unusual noise such as
loose bolts, screen cloth, etc.
12. Start material feed.

Screens

1. Stop the initial material feed, allowing


screen to clear before shut down.
2. Place the start/stop switch in the
STOP position.
3. Lockout and tag out.

Cleaning
Material build up should be removed
whenever possible, particularly from under
the motor base pivot legs, as material
build-up will restrict movement of the base
and allow the v-belts to become loose.

Correction
Check oil level. Too much or too little oil will cause
bearings to overheat, reducing internal clearance,
resulting in seizure of bearing. Correct oil level and
allow shaft assembly to cool before attempting to
restart.
Rotate mechanism by hand for indication of bearing
trouble. Listen for grinding or unusual noise which
would indicate excessive wear on rollers or races,
broken roller or cage fracture. Replace both bearings
as a set after thoroughly cleaning the shaft housing.

Belt breakage, turning over in grooves, or jumping off


the sheave may result in loss of speed and bogging
down of machine. If necessary to replace belts,
replace complete set to maintain uniform belt stretch.
V-belt Drive
Check drive and driven sheave for proper alignment.
Check belt tension. Adjust to correct tension if required
by adjusting motor on base or moving the base.

Build up of Material

All surfaces in the vibrating body should be


inspected for material build-up. Material clinging to
the unit will become dead weight and will affect the
stroke and motion. Remove all material build-up on
unit surfaces.
Check coil springs for indication of coil breakage or
possible build-up of material around the spring.
Check level of all four support points. Check for
possible settling of building support beams.

Feed Arrangement

On units that are cable-suspended, check height of


suspension springs. It is important that the
suspension spring compression be equalized and
that the unit is level. Uneven compression of the
springs may cause distortion in the unit, resulting in
uneven vibration and premature failure of structural
members.

Check feed arrangement to unit. Refer to the Parts


and Service Manual for recommended feeding
arrangements.
Check for possible surge loading of the unit. If this
is a problem, the use of a surge hopper would be
recommended.

Check all body bolts. See Torque Chart in Parts


Manual for proper torque to tighten loose fasteners.
Loose Body Parts
Check take-up rails (clamp bars) and deck covering
for any looseness.

Trouble

Loss of
Amplitude

Possible Cause

Correction

Material Build-Up

Material build-up on vibrating members of the


unit will increase the vibrating body weight and
decrease the amplitude (stroke). Inspect the unit and
clean off all material build-up.

Belt Slippage

Loss of speed will reduce material travel across the


unit. Increasing bed depth and vibrating body weight
with the resultant loss in amplitude.

Power Failure

Low plant voltage will result in reduced motor speed


with results similar to Belt Slippage above. It can also
result in internal damage to motor windings.

Uneven Loading

It is important that the loading of springs is equal to


avoid possible bottoming out and overstressing of
spring.
Check spring alignment.

Corrosion
Spring
Breakage

Screens

Inspect springs for corrosive action. If necessary,


spray or dip springs in corrosion preventive mixture.

Material Build-Up

Material build-up around springs will reduce active coils


causing increased spring stresses and premature
failure.

Unlike Springs

It is important to use springs with the same


characteristics. Installation drawings and machine
specifications will denote proper springs. Use of unlike
springs will cause undue stress and premature failure.

Loose Wire Cloth

New wire cloth must be re-tensioned approximately


every four hours until all stretch is removed from the
cloth. Properly tensioned cloth has a spring-like
reaction when tapped with a hammer.

Hook Strip Not


Properly Seated

Hook strip must be in firm contact with the deck


ledge angle. If hook strip moves up during
tensioning, then cloth will not seat properly on
longitudinal crown bars and will result in premature
failure of cloth.
