Mount the motor to a solid metal base plate that is mounted to a stable, rigid operating surface. Use shock mounts to reduce noise and vibration. Install a pressure regulator or simple shut-off valve to control the direction of the motor airflow. A single rotation motor will operate properly only in one direction. Single rotation motors require a sound absorber to be connected to the air port. Remove the plastic shipping plugs from the ports. Save plugs for future use during a 5-micron filter in the air line before the connection to the motor. Next install an air pressure regulator to control motor speed and lubricated operation: Air motors with an LL or NLP designation in the model number can operate with or without lubrication. For optimal service and life, lubrication is automatic air line lubricator should be installed in the air line as close as possible and no more than 18 inches (1/2 meter) from the air motor. Install the lubricator level with or above the air motor so that the oil mist will blow directly into or fall down into the the oil reservoir to the proper level with Gast #AD220 or SAE 10W high detergent or non-detergent motor oil. For food processing applications, White Rex 425 food grade motor oil is FDA approved. Adjust lubricator to feed 1 drop of oil for every 50 CFM of air while the unit is running, or 1 drop of oil per continuous minute of run time. Do Not overfeed oil or exhaust air may become the compressed air connection with low pressure air to remove any dirt from the line before connecting to the the proper sized fasteners. For the most efficient output and control of speed, use air lines that are the same size as the motor inlet port if the connection is less than 7 feet (2 meters). For longer connections, use the next pipe size larger than the motor intake port. Connect lines to motor in the proper reversible motor will work equally well in both directions. Connect a 4-way valve with piping to both air ports of motor to make reversing possible. Connect the sound absorber on the exhaust air port or valve not add any thrust to the end or side of the shaft when making not use a hammer on the shaft or the drive shaft will make assembly easier. Use a puller for removal of pulleys, couplings and pinions on the motor shaft. Check that the tension on the belt pulley matches the manufacturer s specifications. Do not exceed the maximum radial and axial forces on the shaft. If the motor shaft is connected to the part to be driven without a coupling, check that the radial offset and axial force effect will not cause only belts with < 109 electrical leakage resistance to prevent static electrical problems. Ground the motor. AccessoriesA muffler is shipped with the air motor (except 16AM) but is not installed. Consult your Gast Distributor/Representative for additional filter recommendations. Install a moisture trap and 5 micron filter in the air line ahead of consumption data at various speeds and pressures are available from your Gast Distributor/Representative or the WARNINGInjury HazardAir stream from product may contain solid or liquid materi-al that can result in eye or skin Not use cumbustible gases to drive this hearing protection. Sound level from motor may exceed 85 db(A).Failure to follow these instructions can result in eye injury or other serious all connections before starting motor. It is your responsibility to operate this product at recommended speeds, loads and room ambient temperatures. Do not run the motor at high speeds with no load. This will result in excessive internal heat that may cause motor starting torque is less than the running torque. The starting torque will vary depending upon the position of the vanes when stopped in relation to the air intake a pressure regulator and/or simple shut-off valve to regulate the motor s speed and torque. This will provide the required power and will conserve air. Open the air supply valve to the motor. Set the pressure or flow rate to the required speed or torque. Adjust the lubricator to feed one drop of oil for every 50-75 CFM ( M3 per minute) of air moving through motor. Check the oil level daily. The gear reducer does not need lubrication. 2017, Gast ManufacturingWe reserve the right to make any alterations which may be due to any technical improvementsPrinted in the USA4Operate the motor for approximately 2 hours at the maximum desired load. Measure the surface temperature of the motor on the casting opposite the pipe ports. The maximum surface temperature listed on the motor is for normal environmental and installation conditions. For most air motors, the maximum surface temperature should not exceed 275 F/135 C. Do not continue to operate the motor if the measured surface temperature exceeds temperature listed on the motor. If your measured temperature does exceed listed value, consult with your Gast Distributor/Representative for a WARNINGInjury HazardDisconnect air supply and vent all air eye protection when flushing this stream from product may contain solid or liquid materi-al that can result in eye or skin this product in a well ventilated Not use kerosene or other combustible solvents to flush this to follow these instructions can result in eye injury or other serious is your responsibility to regularly inspect and make necessary repairs to this product in order to maintain proper Lubricated OperationUse Gast #AD220 or a detergent SAE #10 automotive engine oil for lubricating. Lubricating is necessary to prevent rust on all moving parts. Excessive moisture in air line may cause rust or ice to form in the muffler when air expands as it passes through the motor. Install a moisture separator in the air line and an after cooler between compressor and air receiver to help prevent moisture LubricationShut the air motor down and oil after every 8 hours of operation. Add 10-20 drops of oil to the air motor intake LubricationAdjust inline oiler to feed 1 drop of oil per minute for high speed or continuous duty usage. Do not overfeed oil or exhaust air may become contaminated. Check intake and exhaust filters after first 500 hours of operation. Clean filters and determine how frequentlyfilters should be checked during future operation. This one procedure will help assure the motor s performance and service this product to remove excessive dirt, foreign particles, moisture or oil that occurs in the operating environment will help to maintain proper vane performance. Flush the motor if it is operating slowly or only Gast #AH255B Flushing Solvent.
