INSTALLING THE PUMP/UNIT
After placing the unit on the foundation, align it with the help of a spirit level placed on the shaft/discharge nozzle. The correct distance between the coupling halves as specified in the general arrangement drawing must be observed. Shims shall be fitted between the base plate / foundation frame and the foundation it self, they shall always be inserted to the left and right of the foundation bolts and in close proximity to these bolts.
For a bolt to bolt clearance of more than 800mm, additional shims must be inserted halfway between the adjoining holes. All shims must lie perfectly flush.
Tighten the foundation bolts evenly and firmly. Base plate up to 400mm wide made of channel section steel are torsion resistant in their own right and need not be grouted. After fastening, base plate more than 400 mm wide made of folded steel plate must be grouted up to the upper edge via the holes (Ø 120 mm) in the folded plate, using low shrinkage concrete.
