Kinder & Co successfully presented a Conveyor Belt Tracking training workshop this week to a group of 35 conveyor maintenance managers and supervisors from a leading fertiliser manufacturing customer at their maintenance conference.
The rules of correct conveyor belt tracking rely on “true” (centre) and “level” (side to side) material flow. Belt tensioning and cleanliness are essential factors in achieving correct conveyor belt tracking and Charles advised the maintenance attendees how to troubleshoot their bulk materials handling system to prevent mistracking belts occurring.
If a conveyor already has a mistracking problem, Charles demonstrated to the group how to make tracking adjustments in order to fix any irregularities, as well as explaining the features and benefits of several simple and highly effective belt tracking conveyor components. At the end of the training session, the participants took a belt tracking assessment test to see how much information they had gained from the presentation, and they were each provided with a take-away best practice Better Belt Tracking Manual.
As well as this belt tracking training presentation, Kinder & Co offers other conveyor maintenance and safety training topics complimentary to any of it’s customers, as well as working closely with the IQA to provide content for the PDP Conveyor Maintenance courses.
