Installing Ryobi/Itek Suckertube Spacers

Installing Ryobi/Itek Suckertube Spacers

Using a 10MM open end wrench, remove every-other sucker tube at either side of center tube for a total of six tubes.

Thread the Sucker tube Spacers onto the threaded end of each sucker tube using a pair of pliers to gently grip the spacers at edges.

‘Do Not’ attempt to grip and thread Spacers onto sucker tubes with your bare fingers! The thin (only .017″ thick) spacers can act as a rotary knife and easily cut your fingers!

Re-install suckertubes and re-tighten them and you are ready to begin feeding troublesome stocks more effectively at higher production speeds.

Never Rotate Kompac Without Seals!

Never Rotate Kompac Without Seals!

Seal Backing Plates hold the Kompac Seals securely inplace by spring pressure.

Compression springs press seals against form roll ends under constant pressure.

When seals are removed for cleaning or replacement steel backing plates press on ends of Form Roll.

If press is powered with seals removed the form roll will be damaged.
