Hello, my name is Kenny Keller and I am a member of the MXD Process Sales team. Today we're going to go over the installation of a shaft for a Top Entry Plate Mount Mixer.
For installing a shaft to the Top Entry Plate Mount Mixer make sure you can clearly see the entry at the bottom of the mixer.
Notice the keyway, this helps ensure proper installation as well as keeping the shaft in place while the mixer is in use.
Notice that the shaft has been keyed to fit in the keyway of the mixer. Also note that the top of the shaft has been tapped. The tapped end will be the end that goes into the mixer.
Make sure you line up the key of the shaft with the keyway of the mixer. Once inserted push the shaft all the way up until it stops. Once it stops you will see the tapped hole of the shaft at the top of the gearbox.
Screw the shaft fixing kit into the top of the shaft and then tighten with a wrench to hold the shaft to the gearbox while mixing.
