5.2 Lift the machine to where it will be installed, and position it
Ensure that condensate can drain away
In the bearing shields on the DE and NDE, water drainage holes are situated below or opposite
the regreasing devices. They are sealed with screw plugs. Depending on the type of
installation, the water drainage holes are located at the bottom.
1. Regularly remove the screw plugs to allow the condensate to drain away.
2. Replace them when you have finished.
The degree of protection is reduced
For machines with degree of protection IP65 and higher, the degree of protection is nominally
reduced to IP44 by removing the screw plug.
Roughly aligning the machine
The transmission element such as a coupling half has already been pulled on.
