Belt Assessments For Conveyor Success

Have you ever been faced with a serious conveyor issue that has caused unexpected periods of downtime at your potash mine costing a great deal of time and money? Was your conveyor maintenance reactive? Did you react to a situation that could’ve been prevented? West River Conveyors has developed a Belt Assessment program to evaluate companies’ conveyor systems to help customers become aware of premature wear of components on their conveyor line.

West River’s team of evaluators can help customers be proactive by finding issues before they become major catastrophes causing significant impact. West River’s team looks for premature wear or accidental damage from loading improper sizes and volumes of conveyed material onto the belt. The team evaluates the conveyor from the head drive to the tail to assure that conveyor component are properly installed, sized properly, alignment is in order and take-ups are keeping proper tension on the belt. The team checks bearings, motors, reducers, couplings, lanterns, alignment, structure, and belt to determine if the conveyor is running optimally. The point of the belt assessment is to not only identify issues but offer professional, experienced opinions on how to correct underlying issues causing premature wear on the conveyor line.

Benefits of a West River Conveyors Belt Assessment:

  • Detecting potential issues before they occur
  • Help you find long-term solutions instead of temporary fixes
  • Understand if your conveyor is under-designed/undersized
  • Prevent costly repairs
  • Prevent extended downtime by fixing the problem before it becomes catastrophic
  • Discuss modern conveyor technology available

The belt assessment process is that West River’s team will come onsite to learn more about your conveyor systems. The team will perform the assessment of mine conveyors and put together a report on findings. West River can help you get an early handle on any issues that your conveyor may be experiences and find the root cause of those problems.

Belt Assessments are one way West River has been able to really cater to their customers’ needs. Our trained, experienced and professional staff is able to make recommendations on how to minimize costly spare parts and standardize conveyor equipment.
