While the reliability of each conveyor component is key, it’s the often- overlooked idler that should always receive its proper consideration. Here are some simple tips on getting the most from your idlers.
All too often, producers will experience either underestimation or overkill, when it comes to idler specification. It’s important to choose idlers that meet your specific short-and long-term needs while maximizing cost efficiency.
Ensuring proper belt tension is a vital issue in conveyor operation – one that affects belt tracking, overall belt performance efficiency, and the life of the belt itself. Simple tips to make the chore quick and easy.
While material transport costs are unavoidable, the savvy asphalt and concrete producer is offsetting this expense by realizing the benefits of automating the material unloading and stockpiling process. Consider this exmaple.
Choosing the right conveyor capacity is absolutely crucial. Bottom line, a system must be sized according to the highest rate of material feed onto the conveyor belt at any given time – or what is referred to as peak capacity.
How to get more value from your crusher fines. As aggregate producers work to keep up with more stringent product specifications, the need for efficient crusher fines management becomes key in running a cost-effective operation.
Even though idler manufacturers may offer a “so-called” sealed-for-life tapered roller bearing idler, it is merely playing catch-up to the superior sealed ball bearing design. Here are five big reasons why the sealed ball bearing idler is a clear choice.
When stockpiling in the most remote locations where electrical power is not readily available, self-contained conveyors deliver the flexibility and mobility to remain profitable from site to site. Five top reasons why the portability push–and the use of self-contained conveying–is on the rise in the aggregate industry
Belt slippage means costly downtime. By the time you’ve shoveled out the resulting material spill at the tail end of the conveyor, you know that the problem needs to be solved. The use of a snub pulley is one solution.
Under the right set of variables, a soft start drive may allow a producer to operate with a lower-rated ply belt, or even with a lower horsepower motor–and that results in operational savings. A motor needs to overcome three things in order to start a conveyor.
Segregation, defined to be “the separation of material by particle size," can be a problem in many different areas. The emphasis of this paper is on causes and solutions for segregation within the stockpile.
When is an automated telescoping radial stacking conveyor the best choice? Innovative technology emerges as an answer to greater cost efficiency and product quality. The top four reasons why an automated telescoping conveyor is chosen.
