How to maintain a food grade conveyor belt?

Update Time:2018-11-05
The food conveyor belt is an important part of the food-grade belt conveyor, which accounts for more than half of the total cost of the conveyor. Therefore, it is especially important for the conveyor belt of the food line to protect and maintain the daily maintenance.

    The maintenance and protection of food grade conveyor belts are mainly the following:
    1. The feeding direction should be in the running direction of the tape. In order to reduce the impact on the tape when the material falls, the chute should be adopted to reduce the material drop interval; the tape receiving section should shorten the idler interval and use the buffer roller as the leakage material. The belt is compliant with a soft and moderate baffle plate to prevent the baffle plate from being too hard and scraping the belt of the food grade belt conveyor.

    2. Food grade belt conveyors of different types and standard layers should not be used together, and the joints are preferably glued.

    3, the food grade belt conveyor operating speed is generally not more than 2.5 m / s, large block, abrasive materials and the use of fixed pear discharge equipment should try to use low speed.

    4, food grade conveyor belt should pay attention to the following matters in the operation:

    A Avoid the roller being covered by the material, causing the reversal to be ineffective, avoiding the leakage of the material between the roller and the tape, paying attention to the smoothness of the moving part, but not the oil conveying tape;
    B avoid loading with load;
    C tape attack deviation, the application method to correct;
    D It is found that the tape is partially damaged when the artificial cotton is applied, and the expansion is avoided;
    E. The connection between the diameter of the conveyor roller of the conveyor and the layer of the conveyor belt, the matching of the transmission roller, the reversing drum and the groove angle of the roller should be reasonably selected according to the planning rules of the conveyor.
    F. The type, structure, standard and number of layers of food grade belt conveyors should be reasonably selected according to the operating conditions.
   G. When storing, the temperature of the warehouse should be maintained between 18-40 °C, and the relative humidity should be kept between 50-80%.
    H. During storage, the product must be placed in rolls, not folded, and should be flipped once every season.
    I Food-grade belt conveyors should be kept clean during transportation and storage to avoid direct sunlight or rain and snow immersion, avoid contact with acids, alkalis, oils, organic solvents, etc., and interval heating equipment one meter away.

    In order for the food grade belt conveyor to operate for a long period of time without presenting the problem, it is necessary to pay attention to the daily protection and maintenance of the components of the food grade belt conveyor, and as such, it is possible to perform its efficient work.
