Conveyor Scales Serviced By Scale Components.
Professional conveyor scales servicing and maintenance is available from Brisbane based, Scale Components. All conveyor scale brands, capacities and applications across all states can be fully serviced and calibrated by competent and fully trained staff.
Scale Components recently completed extensive conveyor scale servicing and maintenance at a colliery located west of Brisbane. Conveyor scales maintenance tasks included:
• relocation of a dual-idler conveyor scale
• multiple idler roller replacement and 6 point alignment of 3 conveyor scales
• service of all conveyor scales
• chain calibration of all conveyor scales
The conveyor scales relocation was required to minimise exposure to environmental conditions, including wind that was affecting conveyor scale accuracy. Multiple idler rollers were replaced over the four conveyor scales to reduce inherent vibration caused by out-of-balance (or out-of round) rollers which contribute significantly to weighing errors, can cause bearing failure and lead to ultimate system breakdown.
The lead-in, weigh frame and lead-out rollers were all correctly aligned and height adjusted to increase weighing consistency and overall accuracy. Each conveyor scales were then tested using chains to ensure correct calibration.
All work was carried out within the given timeframe set by the coal company’s scheduled annual maintenance week. Scale Components has the manpower, expertise and equipment needed to provide comprehensive support for all conveyor scale service and maintenance needs. Scale Components is also an industry supplier and installer of single and multi-idler conveyor scale systems.
