Model 6 Paint Shaker
INSTALLATION: After removing from shipping container, this shaker should be mounted firmly on a solid floor or
bench with suitable bolts, using all four of the mounting holes provided in the base. The motor and timer housing
are explosion proof for Class I Group D locations and for use on 115 volts, 60 cycle, single phase current.
Connection to the power source must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code for such locations.
OPERATION: The can holder can be rotated through 360 degrees and locked in a right side up, upside down or
horizontal position. By pulling back the toggle clamp, the can may be rotated to the desired position; the toggle
clamp is then closed, and the shaker is then ready to operate.
Single one, two, or five gallon cans of paint should be clamped tightly between the recessed end plates, in an upside
down position. A carton of four one gallon cans: should be slid into the can holder from a side position, then rotated
to an upside down position. The cans are then shaken until the sediment is dislodged from the bottom and broken
up. Shaking is then continued in a horizontal position until mixing is complete.
The time required for complete dispersion depends upon the can size, formulation, and shelf time.
: Ball bearings are used throughout; they are all prelubricated and doubly sealed
at The factory,
requiring no attention for their full life. The motor is built for continuous duty and has a 55 degree C rise above
ambient temperature. Under full load and at normal room temperature it will operate hot to the touch.
Nuts, bolts, and belt tension should be checked periodically.
