blastIT Manual – Installation

Installation #

Assemble The Bare Arch #

  • Lay the 8’ tall legs and the 12’ cross bar on the floor
  • Lay one leg on the driver’s side of the conveyor and one leg on the passenger’s side of the conveyor
  • Lay the cross bar perpendicular to the conveyor
  • Install the hardware (fig. 1.1-1.2)
  • Insert (2) ½” x 4” SS u-bolts in the holes on top of the legs
  • Install ½” flat washers on bolts
  • Install ½” split lock washers on bolts
  • Install ½” nuts on bolts
  • Apply antiseize lubricant on all threads

blastIT Assembly

  • Slide the cross bar under the u-bolts on both legs
  • Tighten the u-bolts to snug
  • Stand the arch up with the help of an equipment lift
  • Ensure the arch is placed to meet the specifications in section x.x
  • Once your are satisfied with the placement of the arch, anchor the arch to the concrete floor
    • Anchors should be a minimum of ½”-4.50”. Stainless steel is recommended
  • Verify that the legs are square and plumb using a 4’ level
  • Tighten all remaining hardware

Install/Connect Provided Drive Linkages #

  • Apply antiseize lubricant to all threads
  • Install the shoulder bolt through the spherical rod end and place a flat washer over the bolt thread nut onto bolt the entire way (fig. 2.1)
  • Install the bolt into the threads on pitman arm or flywheel and tighten fully
  • While holding the shoulder bolt with an allen wrench, use a 9/16” wrench to tighten the nut down to the pitman arm/flywheel to use it as a “jam nut”
    • When having 2 linkages on the same shoulder bolt, place a flat washer between the 2 spherical rod ends (fig. 2.2)
    • When completed, the horizontal drive linkage should be level. If not, adjust the height of the gearbox/motor assembly until the drive linkage is level

blastIT linkages

  • The amount of oscillation (throw) of each manifold can be adjusted in two ways:
  • Adjusting the shoulder bolt location in the flywheel (fig 3.1)
  • Adjusting the shoulder bolt locations on the manifold’s pitman arm (fig. 3.2)

Install Hoses #

  • Install the stainless steel mounts for the high pressure stainless steel tubing
    • When making hose connections it is best to keep the mounts on the vertical legs as close as possible to the connection points of the tubing for stability (fig. 4.1)
    • Evenly space the mounts across the top evenly (fig. 4.2)
    • Apply antiseize lubricant to all threads

blastIT hoses

Connect the high-pressure hose from the backroom pump to the stainless steel tubing

Connect the provided high-pressure hose from the stainless steel tubing to the manifold on both the driver and passenger sides

Wire The Electric Motor #

WARNING! To be performed by qualified electrician

  • Have a qualified electrician install conduit/wire to the manifold motor
  • Ensure that the junction box cover and gasket are in place and tightened evenly
  • Ensure that the incoming conduit is entering the bottom of the junction box
  • Follow the local/ state/ national electrical codes

Flush The Lines & Check Leaks #

  • Turn on the pump and flush out the lines for a minimum of 10 minutes
  • Install the nozzles
  • Ensure that there are no leaks
  • Ensure that all remaining hardware is tightened
