Leveling Foot Installation and Cleaning Guide
How to Install Leveling Feet
Prior to installation, verify that the slope of the floor where the leveling feet will be installed is less than 8° (see #1). Avoid installing over cracked floors, if it is necessary to install over the cracks be sure to properly seal them.
The machinery will need to be lifted and the base of the area where each leveling foot is to be installed should be clean, flat and free of sharp edges for the seal function properly. Verify that the seal is securely installed on each foot and grease the threads with food grade grease. Remove any excess grease. Be sure to install the bushing with the key gap at positioned by the base of the foot (see #3 and #4).
Using a wrench, adjust the height of each leveler while making sure the lower part of the sleeve covers the threads (see #5 and #6).
If you are installing a leveling foot with a fixing hole use the provided kit. It is best to place the leveling foot where it is to be installed and mark the area where the fixing hole will be. Use a drill to create the hole and we recommend using an expansion dowel or a dowel with anchoring glue then tighten the included nut with its gasket (see #7).
How to Clean Leveling Feet
- Rinse each leveling foot with water at a temperature not to exceed 40° C.
- Apply an Alkaline detergent solution to the leveling feet at a temperature not to exceed 90° C.
- Rinse with a high-pressure water jet (8-12 bar) with hot water at a temperature not to exceed 100° C. Direct the water jet to each foot at a 45° incline and at a minimum distance of 300mm, rinsing any closer risks damaging the seals.
- If dirt remains, use a soft brush or plastic scraper to remove. Do not use abrasive components as they might damage the leveling system.
