Causes and Elimination Methods of Bucket Elevator Bucket Belt Slippage 、deviation and Reduced Conveying Capacity

Bucket belt slipping

  • It may be caused by overload, and the feeding amount should be reduced in time at this time.
  • It may also be caused by insufficient tension force, and the tension force should be increased.

Bucket belt deviation

  • It may be because the levelness of the head wheel shaft exceeds the standard, and the head bearing seat gasket should be adjusted.
