Begin by taking out the rollers that hold the brake
in place and removing the airline connected to the air
bag. Once this is done, take two 1/2” wrenches and
dismantle the spring assembly. From here, you can switch
out the air bag.
Before reapplying the airline, snip it to reveal a fresh
end. Then, as you insert it on the air bag, make sure it is
placed through the correct hole in the brake. This is
important as it ensures that the spring will not pinch the
line while the conveyor is in use.
Next, reconstruct the spring assembly. Start with
inserting the spacer and then sliding the bolt through.
Place the spring and washer over the bolt, then tighten the
bolt until it is flush with the nut.
