 Installation process of the slit-screens

The assembly of the slitters is a simple and quick process that can be carried out by trained personnel or by the user himself. The steps for a correct installation are detailed below:

  • Area Preparation: Before beginning installation, make sure the area is clean and clear. Remove any obstructions or debris that may interfere with assembly.
  • Selection of the right model: Determine the model of strainer that suits the needs of the machinery or equipment where it is to be installed. Take into account the type of liquid to be dosed and the technical specifications required.
  • Alignment and fixation: Position the sluice-screw on the desired location and check its alignment with respect to the liquid distribution system. Use the screws supplied to securely fasten the chopper-screw to the equipment.
  • Piping connection: Connect the necessary piping so that the liquid flows into the chopper-scratcher properly. Make sure that the connections are tight and leak-free.
  • Functional test: Once the installation has been completed, it is advisable to carry out a functional test to check that the sluice-screwdrier doses the liquid correctly. Check that there are no obstructions and that the flow is correct.

Con estos pasos, se garantiza una correcta instalación de las tajaderas-raseras, lo que permitirá un óptimo rendimiento y eficiencia en la dosificación de líquidos en diferentes sectores industriales.
