2 major problems causing belt conveyor shutdown and the solutions
If the belt conveyor is not properly maintained during use, the conveyor may suffer rapid belt wear and component failure, resulting in shutdown and maintenance. This will have a corresponding negative impact on productivity and profits.
1. Belt deviation
Problem: when the belt deviates from its required path, belt deviation will occur. This is a serious problem that can lead to belt damage, equipment failure and material overflow. There are many reasons for belt deviation, such as belt tension insufficient, partial load, wrong splicing, component deflection, material accumulation on components and components, etc.
Solution:The best solution is to find out the root cause and avoid the same problem in the future. Carrying out belt inspection helps to identify all potential problems causing deviation, so as to develop appropriate solutions case. If the belt deviates slightly, the automatic centering idler can be used to correct the track of the belt and ensure that it always runs straight in the future.
2. Material return
Problem: when a small amount of materials adhere to the belt, the conveyor will return. This can cause material to accumulate under the conveyor belt or on idlers and rollers. Some materials, such as clayey soil and some ores, adhere to the belt more easily than other materials. Although the return volume is very small, over a long period of time, tons of materials will accumulate and have to be cleaned up again. The return of materials will also cause safety and environmental hazards, increase the cleaning cost, and is usually not conducive to the operation of the conveyor system in the best state.
Solution: a simple solution is to install a belt scraper. Many benefits brought by belt cleaner are enough to offset its early investment cost. Reducing material spillage can save maintenance costs and create a safer working environment. In addition, the clean belt can prevent the idler from being damaged prematurely, prolong the life of the belt, and keep the system in the best running state.
