FAN KIT COMPONENTS
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.
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.
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
