Mechanical Installation

4. Installation

4.1 Before you start

The geared the details on the nameplate of the geared motor match the permissible EX
motor must only application area on site (equipment group, category, zone, temperature class,
be installed if maximum surface temperature
the geared motor is undamaged
it has been ensured that there are no atmospheres, oils, acids, gases, vapours or
radiation that may cause an explosion present during installation

4.2 Preliminary work

Drive shafts and flange surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned of anticorrosives,


contamination etc. (using commercially available solvents). Do not permit solvents to
penetrate to the bearing seals - they will be damaged!

4.3 Installation instructions

Installation the gear motor only in the mounting position specified on the
nameplate of the gearbox. Angle variations admitted between 5 respect to the
horizontal axis.
Please use only attachment elements of the required sizes
Use only the existing attachment holes in order to fix the device in place
The fixing to the machine must be secure and without vibrations; the structure
must not be torsionally stressed.
Handle all rotating parts with particular care
Only driven elements with ATEX approval may be used.
Under no circumstances should you force pulleys, couplings, pinions etc. onto
the end of the shaft by hitting them with a hammer (damage to bearings, housing
and shaft!)
Unscrew the cap or disc facing the end of the shaft, so that the centred shaft end
is exposed. The shaft can be supported under a press and in that way the pulley
or coupling can be pulled onto the shaft.
A puller device is required for disassembly
When pulleys are used please ensure that the tension in the belt is correct
(according to manufacturer's specification).
Only belts with adequate electrical resistance < 109 must be used.
If the motor shaft is directly connected to the component to be driven without a
coupling, you must ensure that that radial offset (centrifugal errors) and any effect
of axial forces (tension or pressure) are excluded.
Under no circumstances should you exceed the permissible radial and axial
forces on the shaft
(s. Chapter 3.2)

Operating instructions for compressed-air worm geared motors 9


Mechanical Installation

You will simplify assembly if you first lubricate or briefly warm the drive element (to
80-100 C).

Drive elements such as pulleys, couplings etc. must be covered by a guard.

4.4 Installation in an environment where there is a risk of explosion

When installing the geared motor in an environment where there is a risk of


explosion, please ensure that you follow the safety instruction in chapter 2.2!
The geared motors that are protected against explosion meet the design regulations
of equipment group II, category 2GD (EX atmosphere gas and dust). They are
intended for use in zones 1/21 and 2/22
Ambient Geared motors in category II2GD must only be used at temperatures between
temperature +1 C and +40 C.
In the case of ambient temperatures that do not comply, you must contact
SPECKEN-DRUMAG!

Temperature Geared motors in category II2GD (EX atmosphere gas and dust) are approved for
class / Surface temperature class T4. This corresponds to a maximum surface temperature of
temperature 135 C.

Protection All geared motors comply with protection category IP54 in accordance with
category EN 60529.

Ambient You must ensure that the geared motors are adequately ventilated and there is no
conditions external influx of heat (e.g. via couplings).

Power output Adherence to output torque and the permissible transverse and axial forces must be
and assured.
torque
Braking The geared motors must not be used for braking in the EX area. Braking
operation operation is an operating state in which the motor is driven by an externally applied
torque in the opposite direction to the one prescribed for air input.

Mechanical Installation

4.5 Pneumatic Installation

For lengths of less than two metres between the main supply pipe and the machine
you should use connecting pipes of the nominal diameter of the connector to the
machine, and for lengths over two metres, pipes that are one size larger than the
nominal diameter.
In the case of applications with one direction of rotation, a silencer should be fitted to
the air outlet. This is part of the equipment supplied.
In the case of a reversible machine that can be operated in both directions, a four-
way valve can be used. In this case the valve is connected to both connectors on the
machine, and the silencer is fitted to the air outlet or valve connector.
Remove the plastic covers from the connectors. Keep the covers in a safe place in
case you want to decommission the machine at a later date and put it into storage
(see also "Decommissioning and Storage")
Set the air input to "Off".
Do not use a jubilee clip to seal the threaded pipe connection.
The air feed to the motor must be filtered. We recommend a filter grade of 5 microns.
The maintenance unit, the directional control valve and the volume controller must
be selected according to the air consumption of the motor, and not according to the
size of the connections to the motor. Calculate the pipe cross-sections so that the
pressure loss between the maintenance unit and the motor is less than 0.5 bar.
The compressed-air motors must be lubricated.
Exception: Non-lubricated motors NL...
Fill the oil reservoir of the lubricator to the prescribed oil level. As a lubricant you
should use acid-free, easily atomisable proprietary oils with a viscosity of 200 mm2/s.
Before you connect the compressed air connector to the machine you should first
clean out the pipe by blowing air through it at low pressure, in order to remove any
particles of dirt from the pipe. When doing so you must wear safety glasses and not
get in the way of the jet of air.

4.6 Adjustments

Filtration and A filter, controller and lubricator (not supplied) of a suitable size are to be fitted to the
lubrication compressed air pipe at a distance of 1-2 metres from the machine.

Lubricator Adjust the lubricator so that one drop of oil is delivered for every 1.5 - 2 m3 of air
adjustment throughput. No adjustments are possible to the machine. (not for Non-lubricated
motors NL)
Speed control If the speed is to be controlled, a valve must be included to control the flow of air
(pressure regulator, ball valve etc.)

Operating instructions for compressed-air worm geared motors 11


Commissioning

5. Commissioning

5.1 Commissioning

Before commissioning the geared motor you should ensure that all the
components that carry air are correctly connected.
Do not loiter in the immediate vicinity of the stream of compressed air.
Set the air input to "ON".
Adjust the pressure or the flow as necessary to achieve the required speed or the
required torque.
Adjust the lubricator as described in chapter 4.6.
(Exception: Non-lubricated motors NL)
Check the oil level once a day and top up with oil if necessary.
(Exception: Non-lubricated motors NL...)

5.2 Measuring the surface temperature (only when used in the EX area)

The details of maximum surface temperature on the nameplate are based on


measurements taken under normal ambient and installation conditions. Even
minimal changes to these conditions (such as confined installation conditions)
may have a significant influence on temperature.
Measuring When the geared motor is being commissioned it is essential to carry out a
surface measurement of the surface temperature under maximum load. This measurement can
temperature be carried out using commercially available temperature measuring equipment. The
surface temperature is to be measured on the flange cover, item 8, of the gearbox (see
chapter 1.3). Maximum temperature is reached after approx. 2 hours, and must not
exceed 100 C.
If the surface temperature is higher than that, the geared motor must be stopped
immediately. In this event you must contact SPECKEN DRUMAG.

Maintenance and Repair

6. Maintenance and Repair

6.1 Maintenance

Lifetime With adequate lubrication the compressed-air motor (exception: Non-lubricated


lubrication motors NL...) operates practically maintenance-free. The gearbox is lubricated for
life. The gearbox should be checked for noises and/or increased play in the bearings
at regular intervals.
Clean the filters in the maintenance unit regularly when in operation, and empty any
condensation.
Check the oil level in the lubricator at regular intervals and top up if necessary.
Loss of power If the motor is not running perfectly after being in operation for a longer period, this is
usually attributable to resinous oil residues that are impeding the free movement of
the blades in the rotor slots. In this case it is appropriate to rinse out the motor with
paraffin.
Release all pressure from the motor.

Unscrew both pipes or the silencer from the motor and pour a few drops of paraffin
into the inlet, then turn the shaft by hand for a few minutes in both directions. Repeat
this process, then connect the air pipe, and at low pressure (approx. 0.5 bar) and low
speed, start up the motor.
Protect your face and eyes!

Dismantle the silencer and clean the felt filter. When air emerges that is free of
Cleaning the
paraffin mist, lubricate the motor with 3 or 4 drops of oil. Check also the maintenance

Maintenance and Repair

6.2 Repair

Vane wear With regular maintenance the wear to moving parts is minimal.
Lubricated motors: It is only necessary to replace the vanes and ball bearings in the
motor after between 5,000 and 8,000 hours in operation. This also depends on the
speed at which the motor is run, the air pressure and lubrication.
Non-lubricated motors: It is necessary to replace the vanes after between 2,500 and
5,000 hours in operation. This also depends on the speed at which the motor is run,
the air pressure and quality of air (purity, humidity).
If you intend to carry out the repair yourself, order a repair kit for the motor. It
contains all the parts that can be replaced.
We recommend that you should send in the motors for repair to our factory. We have
all the necessary tools for disassembly, all the original spare parts and the experts to
set the motor with all the correct clearances following the repair. Performance,
efficiency and service life all depend crucially on the clearances.
Gearbox service In normal circumstances do not remove the gear casing closing cover for any
reason. In the case of planned maintenance, only by a qualified person, it is possible
to disassemble the gearbox ensuring the casing has first reached normal ambient
temperature and ensuring no foreign bodies are allowed into the inside of the box
and when reassembled the unit is tested to ensure to original specification.

Warehouse storage Installation
When moving the unit, care should be taken to protect external parts from breakage or damage Example of a pulley mounted correctly on the slow shaft of a reduction unit
due to accidental knocks or falls.
If the unit is to be stored in a hostile atmosphere or for a long period of time (2/4 months), it is
important to apply protective and waterproofing products to avoid deterioration of shafts and
rubber parts.
Before starting up the unit, carry out the following checks:
Check the data shown on the name plate of the reduction unit and/or the electric motor;
Check for any leaks of lubricant
If possible, remove any traces of dirt from the shaft and from the areas around the oil seal.
If the oil seal is not immersed in the lubricant inside the assembly during particularly long
storage periods (4/6 months) it is recommended that it should be replaced as the rubber
might stick to the shaft or even have lost the elasticity it needs to work.

Installation
Fig. 1
Particular care must be taken when installing drives, as this is often the source of damage
and down time. Careful choice of the type of drive and mounting position can often avoid the
need for protection of sensitive areas, particularly underneath the unit from oil leaks, however
limited they may be.
- The machine must be firmly fastened in place in order to prevent any vibrations.
- Whenever possible, protect the reduction unit from direct sunlight and bad weather, especially
when it is mounted on its vertical axis. Correct and incorrect examples of pulleys mounted on the main shaft of a reduction unit.
- Make sure the air intake on the fan side is unobstructed in order to ensure that the motor is
correctly cooled.
- In the case of temperatures of < -5 C or > +40 C, contact Technical Assistance.
- If the motor is to be started very often under load, the use of a heat probe inserted into the
motor is recommended.
- The various machine members (pulleys, gear wheels, couplings, etc.) must be mounted on
the shafts using special threaded holes or other systems that ensure correct operation Fig. 2
without risk of causing damage to the bearings or the external parts of the assemblies (fig.1).
- Lubricate the surfaces that come into contact in order to prevent oxidation or seizure.

Running-in is not essential for the reduction unit to run properly since modern construction
Fig. 3 techniques for the gears and castings, the extreme cleanliness of the internal parts, and the
excellent qualities of the lubricants used, ensure that the internal parts receive a high degree
of protection even during the first moments.

Servicing
The high degree of finish of the internal parts ensures that the unit will work correctly with only
a minimum amount of servicing
(A) (B) (C)
Generally speaking, the following rules should be followed: periodically check that the exterior
of the assembly is clean, especially in the cooling areas; periodically check to see if there are
any leaks, especially in the areas around the oil seals.
The pulley must be mounted on the main shaft as close as possible to the shoulder so that is Assemblies that are lubricated for life and thus do not have any oil plugs do not require any
