Smooth Moves:
Conveyor drive system maintenance for heavy-duty mining jobs
Maintaining the power transmission components of a high capacity, high-power bulk material handing conveyor belt requires treating it as system. This system includes a motor that creates the torque to drive the conveyor, a gearbox to reduce the speed and increases the torque, and a conveyor pulley assembly that transmits the torque to the conveyor belt. Inspecting and observing components should always be included in the preventative maintenance guidelines for a conveyor system.
