  • Old cross conveyor pin wiper

    Went up in drop ceiling where I work and came across a box of old cross conveyor pin wipers..all 64 of them! LOL. I would like to install them and want to know how they're installed and how often they should be changed out to be cleaned. They get a metal rod that slips inside through 2 springs. I'm curious where exactly do I hook up the springs and how exactly its goes on the cross conveyor.

    Thanks,
    Chip

    I believe that there were little clips that were bolted on to the edge of the cross conveyor. They would tear the crap out of you when you tried to clean the CC.

      no..these aren't those. These rods have springs that they go through and somewhere under the cross conveyor is where the other end of the spring connects too. It lays over top of the conveyor. I found all of them where I work and I wanna install them but can't find any instructions or where to put them exactly on the cross conveyor

          I believe that those pin wipers mount on top of the cross conveyor. They hold the pins down, and are supposed to make a better contact with the belts, so that there will not be any pins slipping backwards. They're also supposed to make the pin gate latch more positively. I should have a picture somewhere. I'll post it as soon as I find it.
