Color Sorter Safety Precautions

Safety Precautions
When unpacking for inspection, please pay attention to your personal safety. Be careful to avoid unnecessary damages and make an inventory according to the detailed list. After unpacking, please store it in proper place to avoid losing.
1. When installing, please check carefully whether the hoist ring is reliable to prevent accidents.
2. Don’t place our machine where exists strong magnetic field, strong light or strong dust.
3. Safety grounding of color sorter: The power supply should have a good grounding. (If the power supply does not have a reliable grounding, please make a grounding device according to following pictorial drawings.)

Grounding wire making: It must be galvanized and welded. The welding points must be coated with asphalt. The detailed making method is shown as below.

In order to prevent the static electricity, the feed pipe, discharge pipe and exhaust pipe must be iron pipes. Plastic pipes and other non-metallic pipes are prohibited.
For the air compressor and other equipment prepared by user, they should be consistent with the laws and regulations and the relevant standards of the state.
The power supply access terminal should meet the national safety standards. A dust control device should be installed on the power supply to prevent dust damage.

Machine Installation Conditions

1. Installation Site
The installation site of color sorter should be level and solid. The working platform should be away from strong vibration source, such as polishing machine, white rice grading sieve, etc. Before the installation of color sorter, the hoister must be well installed in order to prevent the color sorter from being damaged by the hard parts falling from the hoister during the installation of the hoist. The compressors and gas tank should be installed away from the crowd to reduce noise, pollution or other possible damage. In addition, the compressor and the storage tank are suggested to be placed in a ventilated and dry place to keep the compressed gas clean and dry.

2. Environment
Like the commonly used household appliances, the applicable ambient temperature of color sorter is 0 ℃ ~ 40 ℃. So we advise to build air-conditioned room in high temperature areas, and warm room in low temperature.

3. Light
The external light can directly affect the color sorting effect of the color sorter. It is necessary to avoid to expose color sorter to strong light or to install the celling light above the color sorter. Meanwhile, sufficient light is also needed to guarantee the operation and maintenance of color sorter.

4. Maintenance Space
There must be enough space around the color sorter to debug and maintain the color sorter.

5. Ground Wire
Grounding can protect the color sorter from being damaged by lightning, and protect operator from being hurt by electric leakage of the machine caused by improper operation. We advise to embed the ground wire when welding the platform. To avoid interference, the color sorter should have a separate ground wire, and the grounding resistance should not exceed 4Ω.

Installation of Color Sorter
Before the installation of color sorter, you should construct a working platform according to the dimensional drawing. The standard height of the platform is about 1.5m. The platform should be level and welded firmly.

The color sorter is a kind of precision equipment. When moving, be careful to avoid vibration that can cause mechanical deformation, we strongly suggest using forklifts or cranes for moving the color sorter. If using crowbar is a must, please do not remove the foot foundation until the color sorter is moved near the platform. Then use a hoist or other equipment for hoisting the color sorter and put it on the platform. After the color sorter is installed on the platform, adjust it with a level gage to make the levelness lower than 2mm / 1000mm.

The hopper of the color sorter should be aligned with the feed pipe. The feed pipe should be equipped with a flow control panel and a storage bin. Don’t let the feed pipe touch the hopper, otherwise it will affect the output of the color sorter.

Note: Improper installation location may result in personal injury or malfunction of the machine.

Note: The size of the installation is for the smallest platform.
The picture is for reference only. You can enlarge the platform size according to the actual situation.
