6. Check the relative position of bucket chain inside the chain bucket elevator shell, if too much deviation, please timely correct.
7. Check if all components are complete, the screws are reliable and complete.
The quality standard of the ring chain bucket elevator:
1. Bucket chain should be no serious deformation, no crack or wear parts;
2. Small bucket wear, no serious deformation and damage phenomenon;
3. If replace new bucket and chain, bucket chain joints should be flexible rotation;
4. Bucket size should be consistent, after installation,please check the relative position between the two buckets should be appropriate.
