Inspecting the Shaft Grounding System

To ensure that the Shaft Grounding System is in proper working condition, frequently make the following inspections:

  • Inspect the holder for any signs of wear or damage as well as any excessive build up of dirt or foreign material.

  • Check for any cracking or breakage of components or welds.

  • Confirm the “snap in” pressure when installing or removing the rope holder is relatively equal to the other rope holder.

  • Verify that the meter switch works properly.

  • Confirm the rope guide is not contacting the shaft. There should be a 1/16 in gap between the rope guide and the face of the shaft.

  • Inspect the integrity of the rope guide and attachment arms.

  • Make sure the terminal connection area on the mount is not excessively worn or pitted.
