Three major problems that cause the conveyor to stop and the reasons to solve them

Release date:2019-04-09 Author: Click:


If the conveyor is not maintained properly, rapid belt wear and component failure may occur, resulting in downtime and maintenance. This has a corresponding negative impact on productivity and profits. Therefore, we must improve the understanding of the common problems of the conveyor, and learn to solve and prevent the problems of the conveyor, the following to the conveyor xiaobian to learn about the three main problems of the conveyor stop and solve the reasons:

1. Common problems of conveyor:

Material transportation in the mine accounts for a large proportion of the total mining cost. Therefore, the delivery system has become a universal solution to improve operating efficiency. The challenge is that conveyors often operate under extremely demanding conditions, such as dirty conditions, high or low temperatures, and high humidity. If not properly maintained, conveyor belt may appear rapid wear and component failure, which leads to downtime and maintenance. This has a correspondingly negative impact on productivity and profits.

Two, the three main problems of common conveyor stop and the reasons to solve:

1. The belt is out of alignment

Problem: when the belt deviates from its desired path, the belt runs off. 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 insufficient belt tension, partial load, wrong splicing, component deviation, material accumulation on components and components and so on.

Solution: a better solution is to find out the root cause of belt deviation to prevent the same problem in the future. A belt inspection will help identify potential problems that may be causing the deviation so that appropriate solutions can be developed. If the belt is slightly off-track, an automatic centering idler can be used to correct the track of the belt and ensure that it will always run straight.

2. Material return

Problem: when a small amount of material is attached to the belt, the conveyor will return. This causes material to accumulate under the conveyor belt or on the idlers and rollers. Some materials, such as clay and certain minerals, adhere more readily to belts than others. Although return volume is very little, but time grows, accumulate to have tons of material, have to undertake 2 times clear. Material back transport can also cause safety and environmental hazards, increase the cost of cleaning, and is usually not conducive to the conveyor system in a better state of operation.

Solution: a simple solution is to install belt cleaners specifically designed to prevent backloading. The benefits of the stripper more than offset the upfront cost. Reduce material overflow, save maintenance costs and create a safer working environment. In addition, a clean belt prevents premature damage to the idlers, prolongs the life of the belt, and keeps the system in good working condition.

3. Belt damage

Problems: belt damage can be caused by several factors, such as excessive impact force, deviation, improper use of sealing system or belt cleaner, component stagnation and insufficient roller traction. Belt is a more expensive part of the conveyor, so it is necessary to find out the potential causes of belt problems and take active measures to avoid irreparable damage.

Solution: there are many causes of belt damage, so there are many different solutions. For example, the installation of a buffer roller or bracket in the feeding area can disperse the impact force of the falling material, thereby reducing wear and tear on the belt. Proper sealing system can prevent belt from being damaged by stuck materials. The use of appropriate roller adhesive materials can increase friction and prevent the belt from slipping without quickly damaging it. These solutions all contribute to a significant reduction in maintenance downtime, usually determined by a belt inspection. Belt inspection can catch minor belt damage and prevent future serious failures.
