Checking the accumulators in the event of hose vibration


Damper accumulator (1) and Intake accumulator (2) 1. Press in the pin on the test valve (7). If the accumulator is charged, the pin will stick out by 4.5 mm and give a firm resistance when pressed in. N.B. The damper-accumulator pin is somewhat easier to press in. If it is easy to press in the pin, it means that there is no gas pressure (diaphragm damaged or defektive charging valve). 2. Change the accumulator if it is not functioning properly (see page 8). 3. After fitting a new accumulator, charge it with nitrogen. Return accumulator (3) 1. Put the rock drill in the horizontal position, as shown in the figure. 2. Remove the plug with O-ring (8). If oil comes out, the diaphragm is damaged or the accumulator has been charged with too high pressure. 3. Fit a new diaphragm or charging valve as necessary, or replace the accumulator altogether, and then charge the accumulator. N.B. Do not check the gas pressure to often, since the valve seat can be easily deformed by repeated opening and closing. In fact, it is advisable to change the charging valve quite frequently. 4. If the diaphragm is touching the outer pipe, press down the diaphragm using a blunt, cylindrical mandrel ( 79 mm). See fig. A. For the correct diaphragm position, see fig. B.1. Put the rock drill in the horizontal position, as shown in the figure.

Mounting

CAUTION
Release all gas before removing the accumulators from the rock drill. To do this, remove the protective cap (A), loosen the valve nut (B) and open it by 23 turns. There is a risk of injury if these instructions are not observed!

CAUTION
Mount the accumulators to the rock drill
using undamaged original screws. The intake accumulator (2) must have two screws (4) of length 100 mm. The damper accumulator (1) must have two screws (5) of length 70 mm. Change both screws at the same time, even if only one of them is corroded (or damaged in some other way). Defective screws can cause dangerous oil leakage, or can cause the accumulator to be blown off. Squirting oil can seriously injure the eyes and skin. Parts that come loose can cause serious injury.

Remove the accumulators (1 and 2) together with the O-rings (3) by removing the screws (4 and 5). Now send the accumulators to a workshop for overhauling!

Fit the sealings (3) into the grove in the intermediate part (7) and then fit the accumulators (1 or 2) to the intermediate part (7). Fit the damper accumulator (1) to the left-hand side of the rock drill. Fit the intake accumulator (2) to the right-hand side of the rock drill, i.e. the hose side. Tighten the screws (4 and 5) alternately to a torque of 220 Nm (160 lbf.ft). Now charge the accumulators with nitrogen (N2). See page 6. 8

Grease

IMPORTANT! Because of the operating temperature in the rock drill gear housing (see "Lubrication of gear"),

always use a high-temperature grease containing an ashless thickening agent and additives that give resistance to oxidation and rust. The grease should also have good resistance to water.
