Vertical Jackshafts
connecting two vertical sections

Vertical Jack Shaft and face blade brackets

VERTICAL JACKSHAFT CONNECTED TO FACE BLADE BRACKETS:

  • Ensure damper sections are properly installed. (See TAMCO Aluminum Damper Installation Guidelines.)
  • Loosen the set screws on each face blade bracket's swivel to allow the removal of the face blade brackets from the vertical jackshaft's 5/16" (8 mm) diameter rod cap ends.
  • With both damper sections closed, undo the hex nuts on the drive blade U-bolts. Position the face blade bracket over the U-bolt (with the swivel at the top) and secure the bracket with the hex nuts. (For Series 9000 dampers, retain the spacing plate located in the blade channel.)
  • Insert the vertical jackshaft's 5/16" (8 mm) diameter rod cap ends into the face blade bracket swivels. Ensuring that the damper sections are fully closed, tighten the set screws.
  • If any adjustment is required, reposition the rod cap end in the face blade bracket swivel until both sections close fully.
  • Retighten the swivel and verify damper closure.
  • Repeat the adjustment procedure if necessary.
    If assistance is required, call TAMCO CUSTOMER SERVICE 1-800-561-3449.

NOTE:

Installation design may require vertical jackshaft to be installed along with a standard jackshaft. Please refer to TAMCO Jackshaft Installation Guidelines for installation instructions specific to standard jackshafts.

VERTICAL JACKSHAFT CONNECTED TO HORIZONTAL JACKSHAFT:

  • Ensure that the damper sections and the horizontal jackshafts are properly installed. (See TAMCO Aluminum Damper Installation Guidelines and Installation Guidelines for Horizontal Jackshafts.)
  • With the damper sections closed, position both pre-installed short jack shaft crank arms at a 45° up angle and align them with each other. (Refer to the accompanying drawing.)
  • Insert the vertical jackshaft’s 5/16" (8 mm) diameter rod cap ends into the short jackshaft crank arm swivels. Ensuring that the damper sections are fully closed, tighten the set screws.
  • If any adjustment is required, reposition the rod cap end in the short jack shaft crank arm swivel until both sections close fully.
  • Retighten the swivel and verify damper closure.
  • Repeat the adjustment procedure if necessary.
  • If assistance is required, call TAMCO CUSTOMER SERVICE 1-800-561-3449.
