In busy industrial environments, conveyor systems must operate smoothly and as intended to keep the business functioning as usual. Conveyor maintenance goes a long way to ensure the entire system functions as expected and prevents severe problems while maintaining productivity and saving time and money. While proper care of a conveyor system reduces the number of times you need to replace parts, you will need to look at replacement parts eventually.

Conveyor systems incorporate several mechanical components and moving parts that naturally deteriorate over time with frequent use. Even high-quality systems suffer from wear and tear. When the time has come for a replacement, you should replace parts to maintain optimal functionality and avoid potential damage to the entire system.

why you should replace conveyor parts

You must identify parts that need replacing as soon as possible. A faulty component can cause other parts to break or may damage the entire conveyor system. Systems with weakening parts will also begin to perform slower and negatively affect your workforce’s productivity.

Conveyor systems should undergo regular inspections to identify faults and other performance or safety issues. It may be time to replace a conveyor component if the check-up finds a problem, there are recurring issues, you notice the productivity rate is decreasing, or the parts are particularly old.

It’s better to replace a conveyor part as soon as possible to prevent the system from being put out of use for a sustained period. If you stay ahead of the curve, you can schedule maintenance to replace the parts at a time that suits you, avoiding unplanned downtime. We recommend keeping a stock of spare conveyor parts on-site to keep downtime to a minimum and ensure you get back up and running within hours. Otherwise, you will have to order parts and wait for them to be delivered, which could take weeks.

common replaced conveyor parts

As we’ve mentioned, all conveyor parts eventually need replacing, even with maintenance. Specific components can be more susceptible to wear and tear, and we’ve listed some examples of the most commonly replaced conveyor parts below.

belts

The belts are one of the most significant components of a conveyor system, and they commonly suffer from damage or splits. If the issue isn’t severe, the belt can be trimmed, and a replacement can be requested. The replacement belt will be installed when the conveyor system stops functioning or splits. If significant damage causes health and safety problems or prevents the belt from operating, a replacement will be fitted as soon as possible, usually within 4-6 hours.

sensors

Conveyor systems have several sensors for features like belt alignment, speed and motion detection, and safety triggers, to name a few. These sensors ensure the system operates as intended while maintaining health and safety. Therefore, a problematic sensor can have a significant impact on your operations.

roller shafts

Roller shafts are round, stainless steel material that forms part of a roller conveyor. These shafts are vital in smoothly transporting items from the start to the end of the system. You will usually need several of these shafts to form a complete roller system. When the shafts deteriorate with wear and tear, you will need to replace them to maintain optimal performance.

bearings

The bearing is a product that presses into the end of a conveyor belt roller. The conveyor bearings are crucial for helping roller conveyors rotate smoothly during their operations. Bearings are designed to carry heavy loads and, therefore, become unusable when they detoriate too much.
