Maintenance & Cost savings through elevator overhaulCost savings through elevator overhaul
Spaansen Bouwsystemen in Harlingen has achieved significant cost savings with the complete overhaul of its elevator. Besides a more efficient transport, the mechanical systems are now equipped with long lasting, durable components. The extensive project was carried out by Muller Beltex.
Spaansen Bouwsystemen in Harlingen produces precast concrete structures. An essential conveyor in the production process is the belt elevator, which transports building materials such as sand and gravel to the concrete plant. An extensive inspection by the Muller Beltex team revealed that this elevator was not sufficiently reliable. Over time, the abrasive minerals had caused a lot of wear and fouling, which meant that the continuity of the bulk transport could no longer be guaranteed.
The investigation learned that both the drive pulley and the return pulley had to be replaced. This operation has been carried out not just substituting components but by implementing notable
