A Direct Drive Solution for Premature Failure and Overloading
A food grade salt manufacturer utilizes a screw conveyor drive to move finished product to the packaging area. However, they have been encountering several issues with the drive: oil was leaking into product, the drive’s belts were prematurely failing and breaking, and the screw conveyor was overloading. Additionally, the installation of the unit is elevated which also posed some safety concerns for inspection and maintenance.
Process Supply was challenged with engineering a solution to their current conveyor drive to resolve these problems.
Process Supply was able to offer a Direct Drive unit to eliminate the belts and pulleys. A Severe Duty Motor was also used for the corrosive environment. We increased the torque rating on the gearbox to help with overload protection and finished it with food grade epoxy paint.
