The TRI-FLO series shale shaker is a compact and reliable solids removal method. Most TRI-FLO shakers are similar in design and application.
Replacement TRI-FLO screens are available from coarse 10-mesh variety to a 400 mesh fine screen and they are easily changed in the field.
Reasons Of Short TRI-FLO Replacement Shaker Screen
- Careless handling and installation.
- Failure to clean all support surfaces prior to shale shaker screen installation.
- Improper tension during installation.
- Tension plates are not seated properly.
- Cuttings build up under the edge of the shaker screen.
- Worn or dirty deck rubber.
Troubleshooting Of TRI-FLO Shale Shaker
|Over heating of Vibrator||Too little lubricant||Check seals for leakage and add lubricant.|
|Too much lubricant||Remove lubricant until proper amount is indicated.|
|High ambient temperature caused by handling hot material or by surrounding condition.||Ventilate area or use high temperature lubricant.|
|Lubricant Leakage||High temperature causes grease to become fluid and|
leak through the seals.
|Use high temperature grease.|
|Gritty Bearings||Entrance of grit while servicing or through the seals|
|Flush bearing and cartridge and relubricate.|
|Noisy Bearings||Bearing failure caused by mentioned reasons.||Replace bearings: take necessary precautionary steps to avoid reoccurring failure.|
|Normal fatigue failure associated with the vibrator|
service-identified by spalling or roller and inner race at
the high load zone.
|Replace the bearings; see assembly instructions.|
|Erratic Vibration or Performance||Slipping of the V-belts.||Replace worn belts or tighten belts by adjusting the motor slide base.|
|Throwing of V-belts.||Check belt alignment; check counter weights to insure they are on the same number.|
|Unit is not level||Relevel the shaker with shims.|
