10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyor Systems

  1. 1. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyor Systems
  2. 2. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Select the right motors properly specified for the application in the conveyor line. Improperly specified motors cause more stress in conveyor line and leads to more maintenance.
  3. 3. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Examine the life cycle energy cost of the motors. Energyefficient motors by themselves provide 2% to 8% additional energy efficiency over standard motors.
  4. 4. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Upgrade helical drive designgear reducers to save additionalenergy costs. Energy savings in a helical gear reducer will normally pay for the higher initial cost of the reducer.
  5. 5. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Use Powder Coat Finishes on equipment. Powder coat finishes have low VOC and produce less hazardous waste than conventional paint processes.
  6. 6. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Make use of standarddecisions when layoutsneed to be adaptable to meet changing market demands.
  7. 7. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Consider Armor Starts for yourcontrols architecture. Armor Starts also reduce the need for terminal boxes, thereby reducing wire usage.
  8. 8. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors For longer life, chain selection should accommodate the belt speeds, impact and application temperature to ensure durability of the chain.
  9. 9. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Follow a preventative maintenance plan. Improperly maintained systems may reduce the life cycle of chain, motors and other components.
  10. 10. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Design the conveyor line with energy savings in mind and utilize: •High-efficiency motors •On-demand controls •Shut off when not in use •Reduce friction
  11. 11. 10 Tips for Sustainable Conveyors Best practices for energy management start with monitoring and reporting energy usage on a packaging conveyor line.
