There are some hidden dangers in frequent use of bucket elevators. This is an issue that factories should attach great importance to and cannot be ignored. If it is really sloppy, it will have very serious consequences. So today, we will talk about the hidden dangers in the use of bucket elevators.

The bucket elevator is like a high-speed rotating impeller, which can remove a large amount of air and olefin substances stirred by the hopper, so a large amount of dust material will be generated in the frame of the bucket elevator.

Belt slip:

When installing, the belt of the bucket elevator must be tight enough to avoid slipping. Generally, it is necessary to re-adjust the belt tension, otherwise the belt slipping will generate heat and cause flames or sparks.

Belt deviation:

Belt misalignment is a more common cause of line failure, but it may also be a failure of the lifting device, that is, it has been out of joint or overturned by the equipment. If no measures are taken, the belt deviation will continue to develop, which will cause conflicts, and then overheat and sparks.

Bearing failure:

In hoisting machinery, bearings operate in extremely dangerous environments. During continuous operation, in a certain dusty environment, and in many cases, use at high temperatures. These conditions are very unfavorable to the life of the bearing. If it fails Continued use of the bearing will cause overheating.

Welding and EDM:

Other sparks and heat come from performing maintenance tasks, such as bucket lifting chassis, welding on the feed chute, or loading and unloading goods. Sparks can also occur due to improper electrical operation.

The potential risks of bucket elevators are caused by improper crane planning, lack of proper maintenance, or malfunctions that can be manipulated by safety devices. In occupations such as grain storage and processing, the bucket elevator is a typical equipment used to process bulk particles. Through reasonable planning and proper maintenance, it will become an important thing with high efficiency, safety and reliability.
