Putting into operation 3-1
SSE 5 BL
3.1. Checking the pipe system
Remove the flexible hose from the connected material takeup.
Close the open end of the hose with your hand.
Connect the unit to mains supply by the device plug.
If the turbine is operating, your hand must feel the suction within few seconds.
If you don’t feel the vacuum it means that the pipe system is not tight.
Check the pipe system and seal any untight points you may have identified.
Reconnect the conveying hose.
Disconnect the unit from mains supply by the device plug.
Putting into operation 3-2
SSE 5 BL
3.2. Adjusting the suction pipes
The suction pipes have to be adjusted exactly to ensure troublefree operation.
1. Set the suction pipes to their home position.
&
At home position the inner pipe of the suction pipe protrudes
about 120-160 mm (4.75" - 6.25") from the outer pipe at the top
end.
2. Start a conveying operation.
Connect the unit to mains supply by the device plug.
3. Observe the flexible hose at the suction pipe.
The flexible hose must not show any pulsating movement
4. Observe the flexible hose at the separator.
The conveying hose must only move during in-feed.
If the conditions (points 3 + 4) are not met:
Pull the inner pipe further out of the outer pipe until there is no more jerky conveyance.
If the conditions (points 3 + 4) are met:
Push the inner pipe slowly into the outer pipe until pulsating of the flexible hose or shock
conveyance occurs.
Now pull the inner pipe slightly back again until the hose stop pulsating.
Select a setting between the two pipes to ensure that enough air can flow into the material pipe.
Once you have reached a satisfactory conveying result turn the wing screw at the suction pipe
tight.

This functional description is intended for all operating personnel
of the equipment.
Prerequisite for this functional description is general knowledge
of conveying systems.
Ensure in each case that the operating personnel are sufficiently
informed.
Functional description 15
SSE 5 BL
6.1. General
The single conveyor unit functions according to the principle of
suction conveyance. A high-performance turbine, mounted
permanently on the device, provides for the vacuum that is
required to convey the material into the separator.
In the separator the material is separated from air. After the
conveying time is finished the turbine is switched off and the
material emptied into the material intermediate hopper. If the filling
level remains below the outlet flap of the single conveyor unit, a
starting pulse is triggered and sent to the controller.
The filter will be blowed off using compressed air. Then the
conveyance is restarted. This process repeats so often until the
material intermediate hopper is filled. Afterwards the conveyance
is stopped until a new starting pulse is triggered and sent to the
controller.
Functional description 16
SSE 5 BL
6.2. Controller
The control system is mounted on the separator lid.
The setting for the conveying time and the line clear time are made via the keys (A1: “changeover” key, A2: “arrow key”) on the front of the control system. The values which have been set
will be displayed on the display (B). The values which have been set are maintained after the
machine has been shut off.
3 LEDs indicate the respective modes of operation: cleaning (C), conveying (D), line clearing (E).
&
The conveying time can be set from 1 to 99 seconds.
The line clear time can be set from 0 to 99 seconds.
The clearing time consists of 2 seconds.
The emptying time consists of 8 seconds.

8. Assembly instructions
These installation instructions are intended for persons with
skills in electrical and mechanical areas due to their training,
experience and received instructions.
Personnel using these installation instructions must be instructed
in the regulations for the prevention of accidents, the operating
conditions and safety regulations and their implementation.
Ensure in each case that the personnel are informed.

disconnected from electrical power an compressed air supply.
L
For installation work taking place at heights of over approx. 6
feet, use only ladders or similar equipment and working platforms
intended for this purpose. At greater heights, the proper
equipment for protection against falling must be worn.
Use only suitable lifting gear which is in proper working order and
load suspension devices with sufficient carrying capacity. Do not
stand or work under suspended loads!
Use only suitable workshop equipment.
F

Mounting on fixed machine throats or intermediate containers is done by means of strap
retainers.
Please check during assembly that the admissible bearing loads are not exceeded.
Mount the conveyor in such a way that the outlet flap swings in a right angle to the direction of
machine movement.
Please check that all connecting points are tight to ensure that the conveying performance is not
impaired.

8.6. Material feed
Suction pipes type MV may be tilted by approx. 45 degrees in either direction to the vertical.
Additional fastening is not required.
When conveying from the bottom of storage containers (silos), a suction box with 1-3 suction
pipes is required.
The connection of the suction pipes must be carried out with a piece of flexible line to provide
sufficient movement.
Please observe that the length of the hose should not exceed 3 meters (10 feet). Push the free
pipe end into the flexible line to a depth of approx. 4-5 cm (1.5" - 2"). Connect both parts by
means of a hose clamp.
8.7. Mounting the suction pipe MV
The suction pipe consists of an inner pipe (A) and an outer pipe (B) which can be offset against
each other.
Connect the inner pipe with the straight end to a flexible hose:
Push the free pipe end into the flexible line to a depth of approx. 4-5 cm (1.5" - 2").
Connect both parts by means of a hose clamp.
Please observe that the length of the hose should not exceed 3 meters (10 feet).
