ASGCO offers onsite surveys of conveyor systems

World Coal,

ASGCO offers complete surveys of conveyor systems to identify ways to cut operating costs and downtime and improve safety.

ASGCO continues to provide bulk material handlers ways to cut operating costs and downtime, as well as improving the safety of their operations, with its complete onsite survey.

The company provides a complete onsite survey of all the conveyor systems involved in each plant and produces a comprehensive report based on this inspection. Its trained professionals walk each belt line from the tail pulley to the head pulley and everything in between looking for potential problems, with special emphasis on belt condition and cleaners, belt tracking issues, chute flow problems and potential safety hazards.

This detailed inspection identifies critical areas of improvement to alleviate spillage, as well as noting fugitive material along the belt line and ways to improve efficiency. Once the survey is completed, a computer-generated report is created to include pictures and information on 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, as well as what can be upgraded in the future to make each conveyor run to its full operating potential.

The ultimate goal of ASGCO’s conveyor analysis programme is to identify areas of immediate improvement, as well as sites of future issues before they happen. This forward thinking will reduce unscheduled downtime, extend the life of the conveyor components and create a much safer environment for operators.
