FAN KIT COMPONENTS

RECEIVING:

Chicago Blower Corporation equipment is prepared for shipment in

accordance with the Uniform Freight Classification. It is thoroughly

inspected at the factory and, barring damage in transit, should be in

good condition upon arrival.

When a carrier signs Chicago Blower Corporation's bill of lading, the

carrier accepts the responsibility for any subsequent shortages or dam-

age evident or concealed, and the purchaser must make any claim

against the carrier. Evident shortage or damage should be noted on the

carrier's delivery document before signature of acceptance. Inspection

by the carrier of damage evident or concealed must be requested. After

inspection, issue a purchase order for necessary replacement parts or

arrange with the Chicago Blower Corporation service department for

return of the equipment to the factory for repair.

HANDLING:

Chicago Blower components are shipped boxed or skidded and should

be handled and moved using good rigging techniques, being careful to

avoid concentrated forces that distort or bend any of the parts. Partial

or disassembled units require special handling. All parts should be handled

in a manner which protects the parts and their coating from damage.

If the shaft and wheel is shipped as an assembly it can be lifted using

a hoist and a spreader with a sling around shaft at points nearest the

wheel. Take special care not to scratch the shaft where the bearings or

wheel will be mounted. Never lift the wheel/shaft assembly by the

wheel. Always support the assembly by the shaft when lifting or storing.

Do not support the shaft or wheel on the housing sides. Use only the

key provided with the shaft and wheel.

Slings running through the blades and around the hub can lift wheels

shipped separately. Never lift the wheel by blades of flanges alone.

Always transport wheels by lifting. Do not roll the wheel as this can

damage coatings and affect the balance of the wheel.

Bent shafting can be a source of vibration and bearing failure, so han-

dle the shaft with care.

STORAGE:

If the fan kit installation is to be delayed, store the parts in a dry pro-

tected area. Protect the parts, especially the kit and motor bearings,

from moisture and vibration. Protect all machined surfaces such as the

bore of a wheel hub, bushings, shafts, and couplings. Keep the bear-

ings fully greased by filling monthly with a grease compatible to that

originally supplied. Contact Chicago Blower for extended storage

instructions.
