ASGCO Complete Conveyor Solutions provides bulk material handlers ways to cut operating costs and downtime along with improving the safety of their operations. The company conducts a complete on-site survey of all the conveyor systems and produces a comprehensive report based on this inspection.
The company’s technicians walk each belt line looking for potential problems “from the tail pulley to the head pulley and everything in between” with special emphasis on belt condition and cleaners, belt tracking issues, chute flow problems and potential safety hazards. The detailed inspection identifies critical areas of improvement to alleviate spillage along with fugitive material along the belt line and improve efficiency. Once the survey is completed, a computer-generated report is created to include pictures and information regarding each situation found on the particular belt line, along with products and systems designed to alleviate those problems. This helps establish a baseline point of reference on each conveyor indicating what needs to be fixed urgently to what can be upgraded in the future to make each conveyor run to its full operating potential. The ultimate goal of the conveyor analysis program is to identify areas of immediate improvement as well as sites of future issues before they happen. This approach could reduce unscheduled downtime, extend the life of the conveyor components and create a much safer environment for operators.
