These instructions will help you safely perform routine maintenance on your fish scaler. If you require any further information, please contact us.
Before plugging your machine into a wall or ceiling outlet and especially after a relocation, ensure that the voltage on the Scaler Name-plate is the same as the line voltage. Contact a Certified Electrician if the line voltage is different than that which is on the Name-plate.
Proper maintenance can only be achieved by removing the Back Cover of the Machine.
LOCK OFF THE MAIN POWER DISCONNECT SWITCH BEFORE REMOVING THE BACK COVER OF THE SCALER.
Before removing the Back Cover, adhere to the Warning Label on the cover.
- Lubrication should be made with light weight motor oil. All slow speed shafts require that the small oil cups of each Tri-bearing, be topped off every six months; under normal operating conditions.
- The Roller Chain, which drives all of the slow-speed shafts, can be lubricated with the same light weight motor oil, or sprayed with Chain Lube, every six months also. Rotate the chains and sprockets by pulling down on one of the V-belts of the Infeed Bed Motor or the first Motor. Be careful not to get any of the oil or Chain Lube on the V Belts, because this will result in slippage.
Rotating the chains by pulling on one of the V Belts.
- All V-Belts are prone to wear, misalignment and stretching. After the first month of operation, check all V-Belts and tighten as required.
- Both the De-scaling Heads and the Drive Rollers will require re-sharpening after a few years, depending on the hours of operation. All the De-scaling Heads should be returned to the Factory for re-sharpening. Please notify the Factory (Ph: 519-735-9275), before sending them.
