Ball Guard Assembly and Installation

The ball guard system consists of modules which are supported from the underside of the radiant tube from brackets. The ball guard sections are fitted in tandem along the system.


Assembly and Installation 

Assemble the Radiant Tube Heater as per the Assembly instruction sheets.

Starting at the burner end, position a ā€˜Uā€™ bolt (C) around the radiant tube on the inside of the reflector, through the guard bracket (B) and secure using with nuts (E) and washers (D).

Noting the length of the ball guard from the data shown within these instructions, position the next guard bracket along the tube at the correct distance.

The ends of the ball guard should fall Inside the retaining tabs of each bracket and be allowed movement (see below).

Note: Ballguards are not designed to overlap.

The ā€˜Uā€™ bolt/bracket assemblies should be positioned perfectly square to ensure that the ball guard module lies horizontal when fitted.

Offer the first ball guard (A) to the first fixed bracket (B). Secure in position by inserting the cotter pins [also known as spilt pins] (F) through the holes and bend the tails.


General assembly details

Temporally position the other end of the ball guard to the second guard bracket with cotter pins (F).

Again noting the length of the next ball guard from the data, position the next guard bracket along the tube at the correct distance.

Offer the second ball guard (A) to the second fixed bracket (B) and secure the cotter pins (F).

Temporally position the other end of the ball guard to the second guard bracket with cotter pins (F).


General assembly details

Continue this method along the radiant tube with further ball guards as necessary.
