Section II. REPAIR OF CEMENT FEEDER
Introduction. The cement feeder consists of a cylinder with radial fins that rotate in a close tolerance housing
located under the midpoint of the cement bin. Cement enters the top of the housing and is carried by the metering wheel
and dropped onto the aggregates as they are carried to the mixing trough by the main conveyor belt. A precise amount is
carried between the fins and recorded on the cement meter register through the cable pickup at the end of the shaft.
If moisture has gotten into the cement bin, the cement may have hardened and blocked the rotation of the metering wheel.
In such cases the cement feeder must be removed, disassembled and cleaned.
Disassembly and Cleaning.
Loosen two setscrews (4, fig. 7-2) and remove drive coupling (5).
Remove dust cover (2) and felt ring (1) from shaft (14).
c. Loosen setscrew (3) and slide set collar (6) off shaft (14). It may be necessary to use emery paper or stiff
bristled brush to remove any paint or hardened cement on shaft (14) to remove set collar (6) and bearings.
Loosen setscrew (22) and remove the lock collar (21) from shaft (14).
Loosen setscrew (25) and remove meter register drive pin (24).
