Now predictive maintenance technologies like conveyor monitoring system cameras and other types of feedback sensors are used to determine health and performance of internal components of the system to diagnose failure symptoms prior to complete loss of operation. Conveyance systems are critical to the efficient operations in many different fields of manufacturing. The biggest headaches of tubular drag conveyance systems are the constant maintenance tasks and failure due to buildup material. A reliable tubular drag conveyance system needs two things: cleanliness and predictive maintenance technology. For easy cleaning and maintenance of a cable and disc tubular drag conveyor, a brush box necessary.
It is a simple housing that the cable and discs pass through that contain unique roller brushes to remove particles and other debris from clinging to the discs and cable, thus increasing the system’s operating life. Now predictive maintenance technologies like system inspection cameras and other types of feedback sensors are used to determine health and performance of internal components of the system to diagnose failure symptoms prior to complete loss of operation. All customers want something easy to maintain, assemble, and disassemble with the inherent abilities to prevent failure and prolong wear. Cablevey’s system inspection camera and Diagnostics Tools makes operations a breeze with its user-friendly interface. The system inspection camera is designed to be a Diagnostic Tool that runs through your tubular drag conveyor after assembly to ensure the conveyor is installed correctly.
The camera is equipped with a removable micro SD card and self- contained LED lighting unit. The system inspection camera assembly is attached to the cable as two disc-halves, each firmly gripping and moving with the cable. The system inspection camera allows technicians to diagnose issues within a few minutes, on-site, or from a remote location, without disassembly of the conveyor. Cablevey Conveyors has improved the convenience of cleaning their cable and disc tubular drag conveyor with the introduction of the side access brush box. The brush box is used to reduce material buildup on cable and discs. Here are some of the amazing improvements and cutting-edge features:
- Dual Side Access – 2 covers have been added to the side, rather than the top of the brush box that are removable and both act as an entrance point to the brush box
- Low Friction Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Bushing- Added to increase wearable surface by three times. This prolongs bearing life, resulting in less maintenance inside of the brush box.
- Disassembly/Assembly Efficiency – Time of disassembly and cleaning of internal components is greatly reduced as most brush boxes offer little to no visibility to ceiling mounted components.
- Inspection Accessibility – Side mounted covers allow operators access to view internal parts working in the brush box and cable being pulled through, beneficial if there are no inspection tubes installed on the system.
For exceptionally smooth cable conveyor installation, implement Cablevey’s cutting edge conveyance technologies. Cablevey’s systems increase the efficiency of operations to utilize scare resources on other issues. Less interaction with the equipment saves money by lowering maintenance time and labor costs.
