When mounting a pulley, sprocket, or sheave, mount as close to the unit housing as possible; never mount beyond the midpoint of the shaft projection to avoid undue bearing load and shaft deflection. Never overtighten belts or chains. Careful and accurate installation is essential for best results and trouble-free operation. Before installing, the shafts should be checked to make sure they are parallel and level. After mounting, alignment should be checked with a string or straight edge held against the sides of the sprocket or pulley base. Couplings should be properly aligned to the limits specified by the manufacturer. Check alignment prior to initial startup on coupled Hyponic® units.
