SECTION I SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
1-1. Safety Precautions Personnel involved with this equipment must be familiar with plant safety and equipment operating procedures and must be alert for unsafe conditions or potential hazards at all times. The following precautions must be followed to avoid personal injury or equipment damage. • Do not remove shipping skid until ready to place crusher into position. • The electric motor, adaptor and reducer are very heavy. To prevent personal injury or damage to equipment, these components must be adequately supported before mounting bolts are loosened and removed. • Equipment must be installed and operated according to drawings and instructions. Any changes must have the prior written approval of United Conveyor Corporation or UC Service Corporation. • All electrical connections must comply with state and local codes. • Verify that electrical power inputs conform to crusher voltage specifications before energizing unit. • The gear reducer is shipped from the factory without oil. Before operating crusher, fill reducer with oil to proper level. (Ref. Section 4-1) • Before attempting to remove, repair, visually inspect or do any work on the crusher: 1. The conveying system controller circuit breaker must be turned OFF and a safety lockout must be placed on the circuit breaker. Tag the breaker with a sign warning that the equipment is under repair and not to be operated. 2. Block closed any isolation doors between the storage vessel and the crusher and electrically isolate and tag the isolation door controls. (Ref. Section 1-2) 3. The power to the crusher control panel and the crusher motor must be turned OFF and a safety lockout must be placed on the circuit breaker. Tag the breaker with a sign warning that the equipment is under repair and not to be operated. • Never operate crusher without chain guard. • Do not overtighten the roller chain as this will cause rapid wear of parts. • Exercise caution when removing electric motor from gear reducer, to avoid damaging flexible sleeve. • When removing cams, combing plates, shaft, etc., use extreme caution to avoid dropping into the crusher body. See "Systems and Equipment Safety Instructions," UCC #721005 for further safety information. The above safety precautions must be followed in addition to precautions established by individual plant safety programs.

SECTION II GENERAL INFORMATION
2-1. Scope This manual describes the 33" x 30" EXCEN-CRUSHER® (P/N 5-2103-124) solids reducer manufactured by United Conveyor Corporation, Waukegan, Illinois. Included are instructions for its installation, operation, lubrication, adjustment, troubleshooting, and repair within the scope of typical maintenance personnel. By following the guidelines and recommendations contained herein, you should receive many years of safe, dependable service from the crusher. Keep the manual in a convenient location for ready reference by operating and maintenance personnel. 2-2. Equipment Description 2-2-A. Features The 33" x 30" crusher incorporates a host of design features that provide efficient operation and minimize the need for maintenance. Some major features of the crusher are: • • • • • • • • • • Durable Cam Curved DURITE® H Anvil Plate “Anti-kickback” Anvil Plate Corrosion-resistant Internal Components Two-Piece Bearing Housing Spring-loaded Shaft Seal Elastomer Seal Bolt-on Packing Follower Spring Loaded Grease Feeder Locked Shaft Design For additional information on the features and benefits of the crusher, refer to Product Information Marketing Bulletin: #93-10, "33" x 30" EXCEN-CRUSHER® Unit From UCC." 2-2-B. Principle of Operation The 33" x 30" crusher (Figure 2-1) is designed to handle the broadest possible range of friable materials. As material is discharged from the hopper, the rotating cam teeth shear and split chunks of material against an anvil plate. The curved anvil plate acts to produce perpendicular forces at all angles of contact between the cams, material and plate. The crushed material then drops through the crusher into a receptacle or conveying line. As the cams rotate and mesh with the combing plate, crushed ash is efficiently cleared from the cams. Typical applications for the crusher include ash, concrete blocks or chunks, glass, hard clay, and many other friable materials. Crushing can be accomplished either wet or dry. A stainless steel body and shaft can be specified for use with highly corrosive slurries.

SECTION V OPERATION AND CONTROLS
5-1. Operator Indicators Controls and Crusher controls and indicators may vary in accordance with specific contract requirements.

The operation of the crusher is controlled by the Crusher Local Control Panel (Figure 5-1). This panel provides the controls for automatic reversing and crusher failure shutdown. This panel can be used by itself to control the crusher in a manual system, or it can be used in conjunction with an automatic control system. Table 5-1 explains the operator controls and indicators located on the local control panel. The push button, switch, and light numbers given in parentheses are found on the electrical assembly and schematic drawings. Note: These controls and indicators represent typical operator control arrangements.

Description This white light illuminates when the crusher fails to clear a jam after a set number of "Reverse - Forward" cycles in a one minute period. This button allows the operator to manually jog the crusher in the forward direction to help clear a jammed crusher. This push button is only operable when the selector switch (SW1) is in the MANUAL Position. This button allows the operator to manually jog the crusher in the reverse direction to help clear a jam. It is only operable when the selector switch (SW1) is in the MANUAL position. This switch must be placed in the AUTO position during system operation. Selecting the MANUAL position only allows the operator to jog the crusher in a forward or reverse direction. Selecting the OFF position disconnects the power to the crusher drive. This button disconnects the power to the crusher drive. In order for the crusher to run in either AUTO or MANUAL mode, the button has to be in the start position.

Table 5-1.

Local Control Panel - Controls and Indicators

5-2. Automatic Reversing and Crusher Failure Sensing The automatic reversing controller (located inside the Crusher Local Control Panel) measures the current flowing into the electric motor on the crusher drive. As the crusher stalls, the current flowing to the electric drive increases. The automatic reversing controller senses the increase in current and shuts the electric drive down. After a 5 second delay, the controller restarts the motor in the reverse direction for a period of 5 seconds. The electric drive stops again. After another 5 second delay, the controller restarts the crusher in the forward direction and operation resumes normally or the crusher stalls again.

The rotary switch on the front of the controller (Figure 5-2) allows the user to select a value from 0 to 5. This value stands for the number of consecutive stalls before the crusher is automatically shut down and the Crusher Failure alarm (L3) is triggered. A consecutive stall is any stall that occurs within 30 seconds of the previous stall. The standard setting is 3 consecutive stalls before shut down and alarm. If the Crusher Failure Light (L3) illuminates and the blockage cannot be cleared by jogging the crusher, the material has to be removed from the crusher manually.

Figure 5-2. Automatic Reversing Controller (Located Inside of Crusher Local Control Panel)

12

Caution: Before attempting to visually inspect or manually remove material from a crusher, observe the safety precautions listed in Section 1 of this instruction manual and also the precautions listed in “Systems and Equipment Safety Instructions” UCC #721005. The current flow trip point of the controller can be adjusted by turning the current adjustment screw. This screw is located either on the right side or the front face of the automatic reversing controller. By turning the screw in the negative (counterclockwise) direction, the trip point is lowered. By turning the screw in the positive (clockwise) direction, the trip point is raised. The trip point is factory set at approximately 5 amps. If repeated false stalls are alarmed, it may be necessary to raise the trip point. If, during a true crusher stall, the electric drive stays engaged for long periods of time before the controller senses the stall, the trip point should be lowered.

5-3. Operating Procedure 5-3-A. Running The Crusher With An Automatic Control System Crusher Local Control Panel should be set by pulling the Start/Stop Button (PB1) to the START position and setting the Selector Switch (SW1) to the AUTO position. The crusher will start and stop based on the sequencing of the main control system. 5-3-B. Running The Crusher Manually (No Automatic Control System) Follow the instructions for running the ash handling system. When the instructions call for the crusher to run, pull the Start/Stop Button (PB1) to the START position (Selector Switch (SW1) should be in the AUTO position). When crusher is to be shut down, push the Start/Stop Button to the STOP position.

and

Adjustment

4. Clean roller chain sprockets and inspect for wear or damage. Replace sprocket(s), if necessary. Note: If roller chain is worn out, it should be replaced by a complete new chain rather than replacing worn parts. Also, to ensure proper sag, the replacement chain must be the same length as the original. 5. Install new roller chain and assemble with connecting link. 6. Check chain tension. There should be approximately 1/2" to 1" of slack on lower side of chain as shown in Figure 6-2. 7. If excess slack is noted, place 1/4" shim(s) under base of reducer to properly tension chain.

The roller chain driving the crusher is subjected to wear and stretching in operation, so it must be adjusted periodically to maintain minimum slack. The chain must be replaced when worn or stretched excessively, to avoid causing abnormal sprocket wear due to overriding the sprocket teeth. Chain Replacement: 1. Stop equipment and place circuit breaker controlling crusher in OFF position. Install safety lockout on circuit breaker. 2. Remove chain guard to expose chain. 3. Locate chain connecting link and disassemble by removing cotter key from link pin. Remove chain.

Caution: Do not over tighten chain as this will cause rapid wear of parts. 8. Reinstall chain guard before returning crusher to service. 6-4-B. Drive Sprocket If either drive sprocket is worn or damaged, it must be replaced. Sprocket Removal: 1. Stop equipment and place circuit breaker controlling crusher in OFF position. Install safety lockout on circuit breaker. 2. Remove chain guard; then remove roller chain. Note: Drive sprockets are mounted on keyed shafts with a split tapered bushing (see Figure 6-3). The sprocket is separated from the

bushing by using the mounting screws as jack screws. This loosens the grip of the bushing on the shaft. 3. Remove (3) cap screws (Figure 6-3) from sprocket hub and insert fully into adjacent threaded holes. Note: If sprocket does not separate, a sharp hammer blow sometimes helps, while the jack screws are heavily tightened. 4. Slide sprocket and bushing off shaft, taking care to save key for reuse. Sprocket Installation: Note: The crusher sprockets use standard mount and reverse mount split tapered bushings. Be sure to observe orientation shown in Figure 6-3 when mounting sprockets.

Figure 6-3.

Sprocket Mounting Arrangement

1. Insert (3) cap screws (Figure 6-3) into unthreaded holes in bushing and engage with threads in reducer shaft sprocket. Do not tighten cap screws yet. Slide sprocket and bushing onto gear reducer shaft and over key. 2. Position sprocket so that machined face is flush with end of shaft (±1/8"). Tighten cap screws alternately and evenly to secure sprocket to shaft. Reducer shaft sprocket screws should be tightened to 30-35 ft/lbs. After tightening sprocket bolts to the proper torque, hammer on the sprocket using a hammer and block. Retighten bolts. Repeat until hammering does not cause bolts to lose tightening torque. 3. Install cam assembly shaft sprocket on shaft per Step 1. Do not tighten cap screws yet. Note: Sprockets must be properly aligned to provide distribution of loads across entire width of chain.

4. For sprocket alignment, lay a straightedge across the machined face of reducer sprocket and cam assembly shaft sprocket per Figure 6-4. 5. Align cam assembly shaft sprocket so that straightedge contacts all points of machined face on both sprockets. 6. With sprockets properly aligned, torque (3) cap screws in cam assembly shaft sprocket to 65-75 ftlbs. After tightening cap screws to the proper torque, hammer on the sprockets with a hammer and block. Retighten bolts. Repeat until hammering does not cause bolts to lose tightening torque. Note: Sprockets are subject to move when cap screws are tightened. Recheck sprocket alignment after tightening cap screws. Realign sprockets, if necessary. 7. Install chain and check for proper tension. Adjust chain, if necessary. 8. Install chain guard before returning crusher to service. 6-4-C. Bearing and Packing Assembly The 33" x 30" crusher incorporates autoadjust, spring-loaded packings, which automatically adjust during operation, providing a positive seal around the shaft with minimal use of force. The protection afforded by this design permits the use of close-mounted bearings. The bearings are contained in a two-piece, flangemounted housing. A drain hole has been cast in each bearing housing. The discharge of material from the hole indicates a worn or damaged packing that

Figure 6-4. Sprocket Alignment

must be replaced, or the packing needs to be greased. To Replace Packing: Caution: Before attempting to replace packing, observe the safety precautions listed in Section 1 of this Instruction Manual and in "System and Equipment Safety Instruction" UCC # 721005. 1. Remove chain guard and roller chain; then remove cam assembly shaft sprocket per Section 6-4-B . 2. Remove shaft guard (Figure 2-1) by removing hex nuts (4) from studs. 3. Loosen setscrew securing bearing collar to shaft, then remove collar from shaft. Note: When bearing is removed from shaft, shaft will drop 1/64" unless supported. 4. Remove hex nuts (4) securing bearing to housing. Separate bearing from housing and slide off shaft. 5. Remove screws (4) securing packing follower to the packing gland. Remove follower. 6. Remove wave springs, spacers, packings, and lantern ring from the bearing housing. Note: Be sure to observe orientation of components and removal sequence when disassembling packing assembly.

7. Disassemble opposite bearing and packing assembly using same procedure. 8. Inspect shaft, bearings, spacers, and springs. Replace if worn or damaged. Note: After the packing is installed, apply anti-seize compound (UCC P.N. 45532-1) to the shaft where the bearing slides on. This will aid in removal at a later date.

Figure 6-5. Packing Orientation 9. Reinstall components by reversing disassembly sequence and observing the following steps: • Position packings in housing with splits staggered 180°. • Refer to Figure 6-6 for correct orientation of packing, spacers, and springs.
