Protecting motors lowers cost and extends life

Dust, fine powder, slurry and spillage are the enemy of electric motor drives in bulk handling and process operations.

Environmental debris and particles can quickly destroy bearings, windings and brushes on expensive electric motors and add considerable to service, maintenance and repair bills. Process operations also run the risk of increased ignition hazard as contaminated motor bearings and windings can create dangerous operating temperatures.

While maintaining a pristine operating environment is the answer to optimising motor performance and longevity, it is not always possible. The nature of many bulk materials tasks means spillage and debris is almost inevitable while motor and drive positioning means collateral damage is commonplace.

K-MotorShield motor covers are a simple solution to assist in minimising motor maintenance and service costs. The cover is of proven design and installed worldwide in mines, minerals processing plants , power stations , quarries and pulp processing plants.

K-MotorShield motor covers simplify maintenance by keeping debris away from motors and improving heat transfer efficiency from the motor’s cooling fins by increasing airflow by as much as 140 per cent.

Unlike heavy steel fabricated covers, K-MotorShield is constructed of durable, lightweight materials which allow easy handling by one person. They require little effort to snap into place to make installation and inspection easy.

K-MotorShield snap-on motor covers are available in a range of standard sizes for all NEMA frames and will not rust or corrode.

Protecting staff against the hazards of dust and spillage

Dust and spillage continue to be an area of concern and employers must be vigilant to protect staff from the hazards of ineffective conveyor management. The critical component in any conveyor transfer point is an effective sealing system. The seal should be located where the material is being loaded and continue to where it becomes stable. This is the last position to effectively control spillage and dust.

How to Select the Correct Belt Cleaner for your Application

Carry back is the leading cause of inefficiencies in conveyor systems, regardless of the length of the conveyor line or rate of belt speed. The manual task of removing carry back is both resource and equipment intensive. It also has the potential to create very serious personal safety hazards, as well as causing excessive unscheduled production downtime.

Technical Checklist – 10 Ways to Maintain your Conveyor Belt

A good conveyor preventive maintenance plan doesn’t need to be expensive or time consuming. A daily floor walk is one of the best techniques for checking a system’s health. Small, easily observed clues such as oil drippings, belt shavings, or unusual noise can indicate a worn or failing part. To ensure you’re not overlooking these signs, keep your operation clean. Alternate conveyor maintenance technicians on a quarterly rotation to ensure fresh eyes.
