Epoxy mount (alternative)


If it is not practical to drill into the machine casing, then the epoxy mount method is acceptable.


  1. If the equipment surface has a radius of curvature that is less than 4 in. (100 mm), grind a flat surface approximately 0.5 in. (12.7 mm) in diameter.
  2. Using a wire brush and plant-approved cleaner, clean and degrease the surface area.
  3. Using a 2-part epoxy (such as Emerson P/N A92106), spray the activator onto the mounting surface. Place a light coat of epoxy on the surface of the mounting pad and hold firmly against the machine spot face surface for 1 minute.
    Note: If the adhesive does not set within 1 minute, it indicates that too much epoxy is applied or that the mounting surface is not prepared properly. Repeat steps 2–3.
