Eclipse 4000 Maintenance Manual
Introduction
Included in this manual are sections on TRANSPORTING, INSTALLING,
MAINTAINING, and CLEANING the system.
This manual is also designed to give an engineer’s view of the Eclipse
Checkweigher and Sentry Metal Detector Combined system, and as such is of a
technical nature. The complete system is detailed, along with normal operation
and also fault finding and repair.
The combined System can be operated in two modes.
1. Where the metal detector handles its own rejects prior to the Checkweigher.
2. Where the Checkweigher handles metal rejects on its outfeed conveyor.
It can also be configured as an INTEGRASEARCH, which enables the metal
detector set-up parameters to be viewed on the Checkweigher display.
This system like all the other Cintex systems can be configured to confirm vital
actions and or utilities are present such as a reject pack has left the line, that the
reject bin is not full (obstructed), that the correct air supply is available, that the
relevant photocells are not obstructed, etc. Any or all of these can be connected
up to stop the line in the event of failure of any of them.
TRANSPORTATION:
1.
Checkweigher Motor Cables – These are disconnected and temporarily tied up to prevent damage
during transportation. They must be released and connected prior to commissioning. Ensure that
the sealing rubber is secured with the cable and connector.
2.
When lifting any machine and especially a combined system, always use a forklift and support
from under the lower frame bars. Note that the centre of gravity will be between the CS4000
cabinet and the metal detector head since the majority of the weight will be in the metal detector
head. Where fitted always use the fork lifting brackets.
3.
Secure with ties through and over the lower frame, DO NOT TIE DOWN OVER THE TOP OF
THE COVER GUARDS OR THE CONVEYORS.
4.
DO NOT LIFT OR PULL THE SYSTEM BY THE CONVEYORS.

INSTALLATION:
1.
Once located into the correct position, the system must be locked down to prevent movement and
contact with adjacent line machinery. It should also be level in operation.
2.
Always use an RCD feed for the system (16 Amp rating).
3.
Ensure that terminal covers are replaced after connection of the mains power cable.
4.
Release the Checkweigher motor cables and connect to the motors and secure. Ensure the sealing
rubber is located in place prior to securing.
5.
Connect a suitable air supply (4 to 6 BAR) to the system. MAXIMUM MUST NOT EXCEED 10
BAR.
6.
Check that none of the conveyors are obstructed or in contact with adjacent equipment.
7.
The customers should fit guarding at the interface of the CINTEX system with their own system.
There is a potential hazard at the conveyor junctions plus the reject device on the outfeed
conveyor.
8.
If the system is used as a stand alone system, then extra guarding around the outfeed end and reject
device should be fitted.
NOTE: When the conveyors are stopped the reject devise is disabled.
It is advisable to isolate the system before undertaking any maintenance or cleaning
work.

Eclipse 4000 Maintenance Manual
HAZARD WARNINGS:
Only suitably trained personnel should undertake cleaning and maintenance.
1.
The systems are designed for incorporation into a line; (certificate of incorporation) therefore the
customer must take account of the potential pinch hazards that will exist at the interfaces with
the rest of the line. CINTEX has guarded up to the ends of their system.
At the outfeed end, where the reject device is located, It is not possible for CINTEX to fully guard
to EN294. The customer therefore should take steps to protect their side of this and the infeed
interface.
2.
There is a risk of injury due to reaching in and trapping arms, hands or fingers in an activated
pusher, diverter paddle, or powered dipping or lifting conveyor reject, if the customer does not
guard their take off conveyor, at this interface.
3.
If the conveyor motors are stalled, the temperature may rise above the normal operating
temperature of 700C, and may cause a burn if contact made with bare skin.
4.
Burns may occur due to friction between conveyor belts if jammed.
5.
Injury may occur if air blast outlets are touched during operation. Air pressure to the system
MUST NOT exceed 10 BAR. Normal operating pressure should be between 4 and 6 BAR.
6.
BEWARE of items ejected from the reject station during operation, when either emptying a reject
bin or working on or around that area. Reject packs can be ejected from the line at high speeds
especially by an air blast system. Also beware of constituent parts of packs being blown off a line
by an air blast device. Always locate a receptacle under the REJECT HOOD (where fitted in place
of a bin) prior to operation of the system. If the system is to be used as a stand alone unit then
beware of product falling off the end of the outfeed conveyor.
7.
Always STOP the conveyor system before undertaking cleaning of any part of, or underneath the
transport system. There is a DANGER of trapping and injury to fingers in drives and rotating parts.
8.
DO NOT HOSE DOWN the system unless Cintex has given EXPRESS permission in writing.
9.
DO NOT ENTER THE TOP HATCH, above the weigh conveyor, while the conveyors are
running. Injury may result from contact with the activated reject device.
10. Always or isolate the system before undertaking any system maintenance.
11. When cleaning down debris and cleaning fluids will fall through to the floor and will need to be
cleaned up to prevent a hazard from slipping or tripping.
NOISE LEVELS:
The Eclipse free standing Checkweighers and the Eclipse Checkweigher metal detector combinations
systems, produce less than 70 dB(A) of noise measured at the operator station
Pneumatic rejects actuators (other than air-blast) produce peak noise levels of less than 85 dB(C) ,
measured at the operator station..
Air-blast rejects produce peak noise levels of greater than 85dB(C) but les than 130dB(C), measured
at the operator station.
All noise measurements were made using a “01DB SVANTEK SVAN912A” noise meter from the
operator station.

MAINTENANCE:
NOTE: When the conveyors are stopped the reject devise is disabled. Therefore prior to
undertaking any maintenance or cleaning work, the conveyors MUST be stopped.
Regular cleaning down is the key to maintaining good system operation and optimum accuracy.
Therefore minimum cleaning and removal of product spillage should be carried out on a daily basis.
On a weekly basis a more thorough clean down and inspection of belts, rollers and bearings should be
carried out. Any parts showing signs of ware should be replaced.
Conveyors:
Tension and tracking of the Checkweigher conveyor belts should be checked on a regular basis to
prevent unnecessary ware or damage of components.
Belt tension: On the Checkweigher conveyors it should be possible to grip the idle roller of the
standard PU belt or multiple tape (short) conveyors without stalling the motor. If the belt is over
tensioned then tracking it will become very difficult.
Belt tracking: When tracking any conveyor belt always remember that the belt will try to run towards
the high point and it only needs a small amount of movement of the tracking roller to cause either a
change in the direction or an increase in the speed of movement of the belt in the same direction.
Therefore always make a very small adjustment and wait a minute to note any change in belt position.
Also adjustment must be a mix of increase tension to one side and release of tension to the other. In
that way the average belt tension is maintained and not increased. Over tension will result in a greater
difficulty to track the belt.
Belt replacement: This can be easily and quickly achieved by stopping the system, unplugging the
motor cable and removing the two thumb screws in the side members. The conveyor can then be
rotated up and slid back out of the cradle. Belt tension is released by rotating the idle roller up. Then
simply slide off the current belt or tapes and replace with the new ones. Rotate the idle roller back
down to restore tension, refit into the conveyor into the cradle, replace the thumbscrews and reconnect
the motor cable.
Bearings: The latest Checkweigher conveyors now use self-aligning greaseable bearings for the drive
roller. Vegetable grease is used for these bearings. To top up the grease requires a small nipple, which
is screwed into the bearing housing and grease, inserted via a grease gun.
Bearings are located in special housings with oil seals either side. The bearing is locked into the
housing, as is the roller shaft into the bearing, with bearing lock. The grease is then applied (one stroke
or pump only) while the roller is spun to draw the grease into the bearing. If the amount is exceeded it
will result in displacement of the oil seal. It is not recommended that untrained personnel replace
bearings.

Checkweigher and Metal detector – Clean down Procedure
1.0 Introduction
Some Combined systems have been designed to IP65 standard. This means that they will not withstand
mid to high-pressure hose down, but will however easily cope with low-pressure (as per IP65 standard)
wash down. The specification for IP65 with regards water ingress is as follows:
IP65 – Protected against water jets at a flow of 12.5 l/min and a pressure of 30KN/m squared.
Other systems use a metal detector motor that is only to IP54; therefore these systems are permitted to
be wipe down cleaned, only, with a wet cloth. Check the system specification.
It should also be noted that reaching up from underneath the system guarding could access the metal
detector drive motor, pulley and belt. Therefore all conveyors must be stopped before attempting
cleaning of the system.
1.1 General
Please take note of the following cautionary measures:
Cleaning of the machine is only permitted when it is OUT of operation
(Stopped). The cleaning process will naturally involve the opening of hinged lids
or removal of cover guards and therefore the conveyor belt must be stopped.
Before cleaning the system it is essential:
•
For employees involved in cleaning to wear adequate protective clothing and hand protection as
recommended by the manufacturer of any detergents being used.
1.2 Detergents
Some components of the Transport are manufactured from hard-anodised Aly alloys, which may be
attacked by some detergents or disinfectants. This can be detrimental to the operation of the machine
and may also shorten the effective life of the system.
Care should be taken in the selection process for detergents and disinfectants used on the machine.
On the basis of pH value, detergents can be classified as follows:
1.
2.
3.
Acid detergents.
Neutral detergents.
Alkaline detergents.
01/12/02 V2.00
Page 11
Eclipse 4000 Maintenance Manual
1. Acid detergents
Detergents with a pH value below 4 are potentially damaging to the
equipment. They are not suitable for daily cleaning and their use should
be restricted to once a month at most , followed by a thorough rinsing
process with clean water.
2. Neutral detergents
Use preferably neutral detergents with a pH value of 7.
2. Alkaline detergents
Alkaline detergents with a pH value between 7 and 12 are normally
suited to everyday cleaning.
However if any of these detergents are mixed with a Chlorine or strong oxidizing agent (used to
break down proteins and some vegetable staining such as carrot) then special care must be taken
to use not only the correct concentration but also to thoroughly rinse it off.
Typical concentrations should not exceed 2% and must be rinsed off within the specified time,
typically 10 to 15 minutes not more than 20 to 30 minutes and should never be permitted to dry
on the surface.
Since most detergents are sprayed on as a gel or foam, it is important to thoroughly rinse it off,
this also applies to the disinfectant, which if left to dry on a surface, will increase the effect of the
oxidizing agent in the detergent.
1.3 Cleaning Process
For most applications it will be perfectly acceptable to perform a wipe down of the system with a wet
or damp cloth. If the application is not messy (i.e boxed product), then a wipe down will be adequate
for the system. If however the product is naturally messy then a wash down will be required. A wash
down is described as follows:
The wash down process can be broken down into steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Removal of product and coarse dirt.
Application of detergent.
Period to allow detergent to become effective.
Washing down and final rinsing.
Please consult the manufacturer’s instructions for detergent use and pH level, and for any
recommended protective clothing.
1.
Removal of product and coarse dirt.
The hinged lid on top of the system can first be opened and all product
spillage and coarse dirt removed from on and around the transport conveyors,
especially the weigh conveyor. Low air pressure may be used for the removal
of loose dirt or product from on and under the transport conveyors.
2. Application of detergent
Apply the detergent either manually or under low pressure. Use brushes where application is manual to
aid in the freeing of stubborn dirt, but do not use any abrasive tools, which may damage belts or rollers.
The Checkweigher wide belt or multiple tape conveyors are designed for quick and easy release and
removal. This will allow for more thorough cleaning (or maintenance) of each.

3.
Allowing time for effectiveness
The time required for the detergent to become effective and the concentration will depend on the
detergent in use. Always follow the manufacturers instructions and recommendations.
Once the time has elapsed, final wash down must commence. If activated detergent is left on for longer
than the recommended time, the concentration will increase as the water evaporates and may cause
discolouration of the stainless steels surfaces. With some activated detergents this effect is greater, the
better the quality of the stainless steel. The rougher the surface the greater may be the effect of the
discolouration because the detergent will stay on that surface for longer. The rough surface can be
caused by product particles adhering to it, or even sprayed on disinfectant that is not rinsed off and
allowed to dry.
4.
Final wash down/rinse
Final rinse is very important to prevent the discolouration or damage to metal surfaces.
Although there is a temptation in wash down environments to use high-pressure water jets, it must
again be stressed that only low pressure is allowed.
This completes the clean down procedure.
