If your business provides a lot of material and waste from running your day to day operations, that material and/or waste needs to be disposed of. We are in the business of making sure you have the conveyor equipment you need to do that simply and safely as possible. Whether you are looking to purchase equipment, install equipment, service equipment, or provide training to employees to use conveyor equipment, we can help provide one or all of those types of services for you as needed.
We help you take care of immediate needs, but also provide ongoing preventative support services to reduce chances of something happening, so you can focus on making sure the disposal of waste and materials happens. Contact us today to learn more about our conveyor equipment services.
Our conveyor scheduled preventative maintenance typically includes checking:
- Examine pulleys and bearings – With the conveyor running, listen for abnormal noise coming from any pulley assembly or bearing. All pulley bearings should be lubricated every four to six weeks. Tighten setscrews as needed. Use a metal rod to transmit sound to your ear and note any excessive bearing noise. Never reach under or into the conveyor when the belt is running. For access to some pulleys, covers must be removed in mating boom sections. Use a metal rod to reach through access windows to contact bearings. See assembly drawings for locations.
- Examine belt(s) – With the conveyor running, look for damage to belt or belt lacing. Remove any raveled edges or cord that might catch on pulley assemblies. Also repair or replace belt lacing that shows physical damage. Never perform any work on the belt while it is moving.
- Return rollers – Using a metal rod, contact the protruding ends of the hex shafts to listen for abnormal bearing noise. Remove window covers to gain access to some roller shafts. Never reach your hand through these windows when the belt is running. Replace all covers when done. Never reach under the machine when the belt is running.
- Examine mounting bolts – Check all drive motors by jogging units to ensure mounting bolts are tight. Check conveyor hold-down bolts to ensure the conveyor will not come loose from floor hold-down devices.
- Electrical cable reel – Inspect the electrical cable to ensure that cable is not pulling out from a cable connector. Also completely extend and retract the conveyor, observing the recoil of the cable. If the cable is sagging, completely extend the conveyor and attempt to add an additional wrap to the spring at the reel housing. Do not over-tension the spring by over-wrapping the cable.
- Electrical wiring – Check all electrical conduits and fittings to ensure damage has not been done to the system. Fix damaged, loose, or bare wiring or connections.
- Clean up – Restore the conveyor to its original status. Ensure all inspection equipment is removed from the work area. Initiate repair work orders as required. Report serious deficiencies to the maintenance supervisor.
