Download the SMS12 Troubleshooting Guide

McLanahan Corporation’s SMS12 System Troubleshooting Guide provides corrective actions to situations such as what to do if the recycled sand is excessively wet, if the recycled sand appears to have excessive manure fibers in it, if the system is bypassing an excessive amount of sand and more.

Operational Best Practices

How many psi should I maintain?

Adjust the flow to the cyclone to maintain 10-12 psi on the gauge.

Why is it important to maintain a steady flow of manure into the system?

Maintaining a steady flow of manure to the mingler will ensure the correct mixture goes into the Rotary Drum.

What happens if I overfeed the mingler system?

Overfeeding the manure to the mingler system will cause the cyclone to have a reduced flow and possible go below the needed psi to maintain siphon.

Recommended Spare Parts

McLanahan Corporation recommends that you keep certain replacement parts at your facility for your SMS12 System. These parts will be available in the event of a breakdown and will also be available to perform any repairs that must be made as a result of regularly scheduled maintenance checks. McLanahan Corporation stocks a wide variety of commonly used components; however, storing these parts at your facility will eliminate the expense of air-freighting critical parts that may be required during a breakdown situation.
