Conveyor Inspection Program Reduces Costs & Improves Safety
“A conveyor is a complex system of interlinked components. If even one component or subsystem stops functioning, processes both upstream and downstream will be affected, potentially leading to an unexpected shutdown or worse. In a large facility, even a fraction of a percent of system availability could be measured in millions of dollars."
Watch to learn about the potential issues improper contact of the conveyor belt to the return roller can cause.
There are so many reasons belts mistrack, here's a quick recap of just a few.
Watch to see if your conveyor is safely and accurately guarded.
When I'm out in the field, I get asked this question a lot. My answer isn't always short and sweet because conveyor maintenance can be more complex than you think. But here is ...
When conveyors don't operate efficiently...
they force unplanned stoppages and outages, release large quantities of fugitive materials, and require more maintenance. Emergency breakdowns, cleaning of excessive spillage, and reactive maintenance all contribute to an inefficient and unsafe workplace.
Fugitive Material. Piles. Ant Hills. Mounds. Carryback. Many terms are used but they all mean the same thing to those working in the bulk material handling industry = a nuisance and annoyance that needs to be cleaned up. Not only does fugitive material cost time and money, it is a safety hazard.

Optimizing Conveyor Uptime and Reducing Costs
"Technological advancements in bulk handling equipment over the last few decades have increased throughput and reduced downtime, while limiting worker exposure to hazards. However, at some point the system always requires a real person to assess issues, make decisions, and implement proper solutions."
