13
Getting Ready
Breaking In
Airlock Rotation
Your machine has been operated for a short
time at the factory to assure good performance.
It can however not be considered broken in. It
normally takes 5 to 10 hours of operation for all
parts to be polished by the grain stream and for
the machine to come up to full capacity.
Do not run the airlock in the
reverse direction. Damage may
occur to the hydraulic motor.
We recommend the following checks during the
break in period:
A. After operating for 1/2 hour 1. Check for overheated bearing. Lubricate or
adjust as required*.
2. Check for oil leaks. Tighten or replace part
and oil as required*
WARNING
Check the rotation of the airlock. Coupler
should turn as indicated by arrow.
High pressure fluids can penetrate the skin and
cause infection and toxic reaction.
If airlock rotates in wrong direction, stop and
reverse direction of control lever on the tractor,
or shut down the hydraulic system and reverse
the order of the hoses plugged into the tractor
couplers.
3. Retorque all hardware - Wheel bolts and fasteners.
For Best Performance
1. Working area should be reasonably level
and dry.
2. The tractor should be positioned to have
the driveline angles at a minimum.
3. The Conveyair should be located so the
intake line is as straight and as short as
possible.
4. When using the Conveyair to load trucks,
make sure there is adequate room for the
receiving vehicle to get under the discharge
cyclone.
14
4. Check belt tension and adjust as required*.
5. Check the oil levels in the blower reservoirs.
If low, add oil as required. Check for leaks and
correct if problem persists*.
* Check maintenance section for proper procedures. ( Also see page 27 for hydraulic safety)
B. After operating for 2 to 10 hours 1. Perform the same checks and inspections as
done at 1/2 hour.
2. After the 10 hour inspection, go to normal
service and maintenance procedures.
Operation
Low - # 1
High - # 10
1. Set Airlock Speed
Adjusting Speed
For maximum performance adjust speed most
suitable for material moved.
Using a stop watch, the airlock can be set by
counting the number of turns the coupler
makes. Coupler is visible through the three
slots in the deck of the machine. One turn per
second equals 60 RPM.

Adjust airlock RPM by moving the airlock
speed lever on your control panel towards # 10
to increase speed, toward # 1 to slow down.
Move lever slowly, a small movement will make
a significant change in airlock speed.
Material consistency varies widely in the
field. Airlock speed is also affected by suction and discharge length. To obtain maximum performance, try different airlock
speed, using above guide.
A rule of thumb is the larger and heavier the
kernel, the faster the airlock should turn.
Tip - with light oats, or other light grains,
slow PTO speed down to 900 or 950 RPM.

Operation
SHORT DISTANCE TRANSFER
IMPORTANT
If the machine still does not clear itself do
the following:
AIRSLIDE
Insert bin nozzle.
Connect hose from receiver intake to bin nozzle. Set the air slide on the full bin nozzle all the
way open and push the nozzle into the material to be moved.
Do not cover airslide with grain
a. Stop machine by slowly reducing tractor
rpm to an idle, then disengage PTO. Remove
dust pail which will allow any material in the
bottom of Blower Protection Cyclone to run
out.
b. Remove nozzle from grain source
c. Start the machine and allow the Receiver
tank to empty itself. Then stop machine again
d. Remove the top on the Blower Protection
Cyclone and clean out any material in the
top of the cyclone and in the pipe between
the receiver tank and the Blower Protection
Cyclone.
e. Replace the Dust pail and the Top on the
Blower Protection Cyclone.
f. Start machine, (RECHECK AIRLOCK
SPEED , page 15) and reset the air slide as
per start up instructions.
Note: Airlock should not turn faster than 65
RPM or slower than 30 RPM.
SIGHT GLASS
BPS System
For PUSH SYSTEM
only, remove
receiver tank lid
see page 17
The line of the grain can be horizontal, angled or vertical depending on conditions.
Adjust the airslide on the full bin nozzle so that
the material moves across the sight glass
window of the receiver tank to approximately
half way (no more than 2/3) up the window. If
the machine starts to surge, slowly open slide
till surging stops.
IMPORTANT
Note: Should the material stop moving and completely cover the
sight glass window in the receiver tank, the machine will quickly
plug. Immediately open the air slide fully, on the full bin nozzle,
to allow the machine to clear itself.
If your machine is an Ultima Series grain vac, simply remove the
nozzle from the grain and forward and reverse the airlock several
times to empty the tank. Then ensure the airlock is turning
counter clockwise and resume operation as normal.
Otherwise follow the next 6 steps:
16
Dust Canister
Operation
LONG DISTANCE BLOWING
!
WARNING
Do not use P.V.C. or other plastic tubing for
long distance application. The build-up of
static electricity could lead to an explosion.
Auxiliary airslide. Located on the airline
between the receiver tank and the air pump.
If discharge length is more than 40 ft. (12 m) or
if blower gets too hot to the touch, open the
airslide approximately 1/4” - 1/2” (6 - 12mm) for
every 100 ft. (30 m) discharge. Open further if
blower still gets hot.
CLEAN UP
When machine need not be at full capacity, e.g.
when cleaning bins, the tractor can be throttled
down.
STEEL FLEX HOSE
POLY
INTAKE HOSE
The rougher walls of the steel flex hose and the poly
intake hose provide more resistance than smooth
pipe. Capacity may be lowered by 20 to 40% compared to straight piping.
Use Poly hose for clean up only.
Opening the airslide too far will affect capacity
as adversely as not opening it at all.
Do not dent, stretch or overbend steel flex
line excessively.
Feed grain below opening to second cyclone
Do not store poly hose in sunshine, avoid
sharp obstructions that could cut or puncture the hose.
TOP LOADING
(Push Only)
For top loading,
remove top cover of
large cyclone. To
avoid feed back be
sure grain enters below opening to BPS
(smaller) cyclone.
For regular cleanup use a combination of steel
flex line, straight piping and poly hose. This will
give you the needed flexibility to easily get into
corners and around obstructions without sacrificing too much capacity.
SEED DRILL CLEAN OUT
LONG DISTANCE SUCTION
For sucking grain more than thirty feet, use
straight piping where possible!
Remember: The straighter the suction line
the greater the capacity of the Conveyair.
When using the seed drill clean out kit, operate
the tractor at idle only to reduce suction air
flow. The receiver tank can be used as a holding tank by stopping the airlock until the seed
can be discharged into a truck or storage.
17
