Tecnitude advises users to regularly maintain the conveyor. It should make certain arrangements in the maintenance of a conveyor belt to ensure proper operation and to extend its life. Our tips are inspired P. Biaggi to maintain your conveyor, whether on duty or off.
Maintenance of a conveyor service
The maintenance of a conveyor service is by week, month and year. Each week, check the level of gearbox oil, grease all drums including restraint pulleys, inspect the belt and make repairs, clean under the belt especially if the product glue, monitor settings, the state brushes or cleaning bodies, bibs or squeegees, staples, the tension device, frequently clean the rollers, drums, etc. especially if the product is sticky and if the atmosphere is dusty. Each month, add a little oil to the engine bearing (if pads). Every x months or years, lubricate the pump all ball or roller bearings, without excess (engine, rolls media below and above).
Maintenance of a stationary conveyor
The maintenance of a conveyor shutdown allows a great cleaning of the conveyor by brushing and washing with water of the belt, clean all organs and do a detailed examination. During an extended shutdown of a naked conveyor, cover the conveyor or pass over the top coating of the belt wax special "antioxidant". An extended shutdown due to sun or frost, protect the belt. The closed bridges and hoods represent a complete solution (against sunlight) and partial (against freezing).
To maintain a conveyor that is off against frost, warm up the belt with hot water in the portion located on the motor and drum on a few meters below before starting the conveyor. Start at very low speed. If possible, warm the entire belt before starting a startup. Operate for an hour at a low idle speed before admitting the charge.
When the belt is exposed to sunlight, operate one hour low idle speed before admitting the charge. Finally, starting after a long break, run an hour low idle speed before admitting the charge.
