The lower bucket elevator discharging efficiency is one of the biggest hidden trouble of material hoisting. Either too much material return or too little material discharging may cause:
- Motor burn out
Too much material return might bring into bucket elevating machine As we all know, the overload will lead to fast motor temperature rising, oncethe motor temperature reaches a certain level, it will produce “spontaneous combustion” which is know as the common motor burn out.
- Driving wheel stuck causesbearing lock
Because of the friction, the temperature will pass to bearing, and if the bottom was buried by materials, especially for the fine powder which would enter into bearings through gap. Combined with high temperature and forced operation, it will directly lead to bearing lock!
