Article deals with the presentation of measurement that have been carried out on the steel frame of the primary sand classifier. The aim of the investigation was to identify the sources of the abnormal vibration of the frame. The vibration significantly reduces the effective performance of the classifier. The frame anchorage has been stripped out from concrete footing by these vibrations. The measurement of dynamic properties of the frame were performed. The displacements of the particular trusses have been experimentally investigated by accelerometers. The tensile test were performed in the places of expected maximum amplitude of the vibration. Based on the experiment results and new design calculation of the steel frame (truss construction), the new construction design was developed and improved by frame reinforcing. The new designed construction was investigated by vibration measurements again. The acceleration and total amplitude of particular trusses were recorded. The steel construction of the supporting frame has frequencies in range from 13.07 to 13.10 Hz. The significant enhancement of the noise and vibration of the main bearing have been observed during the classifier operation. The system of precautions was proposed to improve operation of the classifier and after realization the classifier run with no limitation.
Key words: vibration / frame / acceleration / steel structures
