8 Tips to enhance the longevity of your Belt Elevator

8 Tips to Enhance The Longevity of Your Belt Elevator

Here are 8 tips that I can advise to ensure longevity of your belts (belt elevators)-:

  • Ensure belt tension is sufficient for drive – but not over tensioned. 
  • Regularly check belt tracking and adjust accordingly.
  • Regularly check bearings and shafts for wear
  • Regularly check rollers for build up and clear of all debris
  • Regularly check underside of belt for build up of debris and clean accordingly
  • Regularly check overall condition of belt for wear and tear
  • Belt failures are generally caused by mechanical damage ie. Bearing failure resulting in tracking issues (possibly from over tensioning). 
  • Second common cause is operator damage ie. Un-qualified belt adjustment or abuse.
