1. Safety

General Safety Statement

Thank you for choosing a Natural Ventilation Chimney. It is designed to give excellent performance and service for many years. Our foremost concern is your safety and the safety of others associated with swine equipment. We want to keep you as a customer. This manual is to help you understand safe operating procedures and some problems which may be encountered by the operator and other personnel.

As owner and/or operator, you are responsible to know what requirements, hazards, and precautions exist and inform all personnel associated with the equipment or in the area. Safety precautions may be required from the personnel. Avoid any alterations to the equipment, which may produce a very dangerous situation, where SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH may occur.

User’s Manual

This manual contains information and instructions essential to the safe installation and use of the Natural

Ventilation Chimney. Read this manual thoroughly before attempting any installation or use of the

Chimney. Keep this manual with the Natural Chimney or in a location where it can be readily accessed.

Failure to read this manual and its safety instructions is a misuse of the equipment.

Correct Use of the Natural Ventilation Chimney

In the installation, maintenance and use of the Natural Chimney, only genuine AP parts are to be used.

Use of other non-genuine parts is a misuse of the system and may lead to dangerous situations risking the safety and health of you and others.

Safety in Handling the Natural Ventilation Chimney

Some components of the Natural Ventilation Chimney require manual handling during installation.

To prevent injury, seek assistance where necessary.

Some items may have sharp, rough or abrasive edges. To prevent injury, use suitable hand protection when manually handling the components of this system.

Safety in Maintenance

While the Natural Ventilation Chimney is designed to keep maintenance to a minimum, some repairs will be necessary in the course of the life of the machine. Do not attempt any repairs on the machine unless you are competent to do so. Never attempt any work on the Chimney without first isolating it from the linear actuator.

Installation Notes

To ensure the safety during installation, make all electrical connections to the linear actuator as the final step of installation. This should be done only when the Chimney has been fully installed. Electrical connection should be carried out only by a qualified electrical installer and should be to the relevant rules and directives in force in your region.

2. Assembly

Assembly Chamber with Damper

1. Attach the laminated foam sheets (H) to the “C” channels by using the self-drilling screws.

2. While lining up the pivot knobs on the damper (A) with the holes in the main side assemblies (C), slide laminated foam sheets (H) into the slots on the main side assemblies.

3. Bolt chamber together. In the top holes, use four (4) 1/4" x 2-1/2" carriage bolts (D), four (4) nylon washers (E) and four (4) 1/4" nylock nuts (F) (washers and nuts go on the inside). In the middle holes, use four (4) 1/4" x 2-1/2" carriage bolts (D), four (4) aluminum stops (B) and four (4) 1/4" lock nuts (F).

4. The aluminum stops (B) stop the damper in its closed position. The direction they are installed is

important. They must be installed oriented as shown in

Figure 2A

.

NOTE: Bolts in the bottom of the chamber will be put in later with other components.

NOTE: The cable pull location is determined from the tabs orientation.

2. Assembly

Attach Cables to the Damper

1. Connect the two (2) cable assemblies (D) to the damper by putting each eye bolt through one of the holes in the damper (A) with a nylon washer on each side of the damper and securing with a lock nut on the other side. It does not matter which assembly goes in which hole.

2. Slip each of the loose ends of the cable assemblies through one of the outside pulleys (C) on the

pulley bracket assembly.

(See Figure 2C.)

NOTE: The holes in the damper are offset to align better with the outside pulleys. Make sure each

cable assembly uses the pulley on its side.

Attach Closure Door (If Used)

1. Bolt the closure door (B) to the bottom of the chamber (A) or extension on the opposite side as the pulley bracket assembly using two (2) 1/4" x 2-1/2" carriage bolts and 1/4" lock nuts.

2. Thread the cord through the middle pulley on the pulley bracket assembly.

3. The long cords can be tied off to hold the door in either the closed or open position.

(See Figure 2E.)

NOTE: This pivoting closure door cannot be used in a flat ceiling application.

2. Assembly

Install Chimney in Roof

1. Construct a framed opening using 2" x 6" wood framing through the roof (A) that is 36-1/2" by

36-1/2". The framing is to be constructed from good quality construction lumber, southern pine, douglas fir larch or a wood species with the same or better dowel bearing strength. Consult with your building engineer to determine proper framing support and to verify structural strength of building is adequate for the addition of this Chimney.

2. Hoist the chamber up through the opening until the top of the chamber (B) extends above the roof

18" (D).

3. Connect the chamber to the framed opening using 5/16" lag bolts (not supplied) (E) that go through the aluminum angles (C) at the corners of the chamber. Of course, holes through the angle and foam must be drilled first for the lag bolts. Two (2) lag bolts per corner for a total of eight (8) lag bolts must be used. The lag bolts are to be attached through the vertical centers of the 2" x 6" framing.

Attach Cap to Chamber

1. Bolt the cap (A) to the top of the outside aluminum angles (B) on the chamber (C) using sixteen (16)

5/16" x 1-1/4" bolts, sixteen (16) 5/16" lock nuts, sixteen (16) fender washers and sixteen (16) flat washers. The fender washers and the heads of the bolts go on the outside of the cap.

2. Assembly

Attach Damper Cables to Master Cable

1. After installing the linear actuator and master cable, put the linear actuator (C) in the closed position.

2. If building does not have a ceiling, attach 1-7/8" pulleys (D) to a horizontal truss member directly

below the pulley assembly in the chamber using eye screws provided. If the truss has a vertical

member directly in the center, the horizontal truss member can be connected to the bottom of the

truss with a hole in the bottom cord (G) of the truss for the master cable/rod (B).

(See Figure 2J.)

3. Pull on the cable assembly with the chain and spring (A) until the damper hits the stops in the closed position. The stops may need to be rotate to be in the proper position for this to happen.

4. Connect the cable assembly with the chain and spring to the master cable in the direction of the linear actuator using a cable clamp after running the cable through one of the pulleys or through one of the pulleys in the ceiling bracket pulley assembly.

5. Connect the other cable assembly to the master cable in the opposite direction in the same way.

Optional Bird Protection Installation Instructions

The bird protection for the 36" Natural Ventilation Chimney uses bird spikes in one foot (1') sections attached and centered on the top of each aluminum channel of the four (4) sides of the Chimney. Each

Chimney uses ten (10) of the one foot (1') bird spike sections. It will be necessary to cut two (2) of the one foot (1') bird spike sections into 6" pieces.

After the two (2) sections are cut into four (4) 6" sections, begin assembling the bird spikes to the top of the side channels as shown in

Figure 2K

. The spikes are to be centered on each side channel and attached using the self-drilling screws included. Repeat for all four (4) sides. The finished product should

look like
