Receiving, Handling, and Storage
Receiving
Whenever traffic clearance allows, the machine is
shipped from the factory as an assembled unit ready for
installation. Sole plates (or slide rails), if ordered, are
bolted to machine feet. Occasionally some accessory
items are shipped separately. All packing lists should be
carefully checked to assure all items have been received,
Each unit should be carefully inspected upon arrival.
Any damage should be photographed, documented and
then reported immediately to the carrier and to the
nearest General Electric office.
Handling
The machine should be lifted by means of the
lifting lugs. On the 2 or 4 Pole there are 2 lifting lugs
positioned on the top of the cooler (see Fig. 1). On the 6
Pole, there are 4 lifting lugs positioned on the frame (see
Fig. 2). If couplings or other attachments unbalance the
load, an additional sling should be used to prevent
tipping or rotation.
In all cases spreaders should be used. For the 6
Pole, the spreaders are important to prevent damage to
the top cover while lifting the machine. For the 2 and 4
Pole, if the spreaders cannot be used, the slings should
not make an angle smaller than 60° with the horizontal to
prevent over stress on the slings and the studs.
