our knife first for clear cutting"- a Chinese proverb tells
us using the best tool is a must for excellent job performance. Paddelwheel
aerator is the life- line for successful farming. Herewith we address
tips for maintenance as follows:
- After each harvest, sand off and
brush away the rust on the surface of motor and repaint it. This is
to prevent corrosion and enhance the heat dissipation.
- Make sure the voltage is stable
and normal when the aerator is in operation, this is to prolong the
life of motor.
- Replace gear lubrication oil after the
aerator being used for the first 360 hours and once every other 3.600
hours later. This is to reduce the friction and prolong the life of
reducer. Gear oil No.#50 is being used and standard capacity is 2.2
liters. (1 gallon= 3.8 liters)
- Maintain surface of reducer as that of
- Clean off the fouling organisms on the
floaters after each harvest. This is to maintain the normal submergence
depth and optimal aeration.
