Sand washing machine operation and maintenance

In the sand washing plants, sand washing machines are specially used to washing sand and removing the dust and impurities from sand, then to get cleaner and high quality sand for construction. So the sand washing machine has gradually become an important equipment for the sand production line. Then how to operate and maintain the sand washer machines?

Installation requirements

1.Before installation, check that all parts are complete and damaged.

2.The basic construction drawing of sand washing machine should be designed according to the specific conditions of working site, and the sand washing machine should be firmly installed on the solid concrete foundation.

3.When installing spiral sand washer, the tilt angle must be ensured according to the requirements of installation drawing.

4.The motor of sand washer is mounted on the guide rail to adjust the tightness of belt. The pulley and motor pulley should be parallel when installed.

5.After adjusting according to the above requirements, turn the rotor disk a few turns to check for stuck or collision.


Unload commissioning

1.After the motor is started, the sand washer should run smoothly without abnormal vibration.

2.The bearing temperature can not exceed 35 °C.

3.For operation 2-4 hours, and the connection is checked for looseness and adjustment.

4.Checking if there is loss connection during the operation for 2-4 hours. If there is, adjust.

Load commissioning

1.The sand washing machine can perform the load operation test on the basis of good unload test operation.

2.No dust entering each seal

3.Determine the actual power of motor without abnormal fluctuations.

4.The load operation test needs to be continuous for 5-6 hours. After the operation is confirmed to be normal, it can be officially put into operation.
