Muller Beltex regularly performs inspections on elevators in order to monitor their status. By carrying out inspections, we can prevent many stoppages caused by calamities. After completing an inspection, we draw up an extensive report explaining the situation to the client. This is followed by a comprehensive quote including a work plan describing what actions are required. Based on a phased plan, the actions are performed in a controlled way and all associated risks are identified to ensure that the work is performed safely.
During this inspection of a wheat elevator, for example, a tower crane was needed to replace the drive roller. The inspection was performed while the drive roller at the top of the elevator was being replaced.
Eventually, the elevator belt will need replacing during the second half of this year due to drying out. We can then replace the worn fasteners on the belt at the same time. The photos clearly show that the lip over which the product is tipped into the hopper is also showing excessive wear and tear. This will be covered with Kryptane® polyurethane.
