Hytrol Conveyor Video Series Included Adjustment of ProSort SC
Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2014 -- Hytrol Conveyor Company, Inc., manufacturers of advanced conveyor systems, controls, and solutions, provided a video demonstration how to adjust the ProSort SC divert bank. The current video is part of a monthly video series called “Ask Hytrol” focused on specific topics to help maintain conveyor systems and learn about new technologies.
The video demonstrated proper lock out/tag out procedures and loosen the two jam nuts on both sides of the divert bank and turn the adjustment bolt clockwise to lower the divert bank or counterclockwise to raise it.
A straight edge or level should be used to ensure proper alignment of the divert bank. Measuring from the infeed side, the divert bank should be adjusted to a height of 5/32 (0.15625) inches above the top of the belt. The measurement should be taken where the belt is touching the bed. Please note that the height of the divert bank should be feathered at a slight upward angle to ensure a smooth transition of product. Upon final adjustment of the divert bank, tighten all jam nuts back into place.
