Conveyor System Repair

If you’re looking to repair a conveyor system, here are some general steps you can follow, or you can call us.

Conveyor systems play a crucial role in many industries, including food and pharmaceuticals, by efficiently moving ingredients and food products along a designated path. If you’re looking to repair a conveyor system, here are some general steps you can follow, or you can call us.


Identify the issue: Inspect the conveyor system to determine the exact problem. This could include components such as belts, rollers, motors, bearings, or any other part that may be malfunctioning.

Safety precautions:

  1. Before starting any repair work, ensure the conveyor system is shut down and isolated from any power source.
  2. Follow proper lockout/tagout procedures to prevent accidental startup during repairs.
  3. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, safety glasses, and hearing protection.

Gather necessary tools and replacement parts:
 Based on your assessment of the problem, gather the tools and replacement parts you’ll need to complete the repair. This may include wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, replacement belts, bearings, or other specialized equipment. We stock most vibratory conveyor spare parts and can send these out to you if required, but we always recommend you keep stock on-site. 

Replace damaged components:
 If a specific component is causing the issue, remove the faulty part and replace it with the appropriate replacement. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions, consult equipment manuals if available, and call us in. 

Adjustments and alignments:
 In some cases, a misalignment or improper tension may be causing the problem. Ensure the conveyor belt is properly aligned and tensioned according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Check for any obstructions or objects that could impede the system’s operation.

Lubrication and maintenance:
 Regular lubrication is essential for the smooth operation of conveyor systems. As the manufacturer recommends, apply appropriate lubricants to bearings, rollers, or other moving parts. Perform routine maintenance tasks such as cleaning, tightening bolts, and inspecting for any signs of wear or damage.

Test the system:
 Once the repair work is complete, perform a test run of the conveyor system to ensure it functions correctly. Gradually increase the speed and load to verify that the repairs have been successful and the system is operating as intended.

It’s important to note that conveyor systems vary significantly depending on their design and complexity. Suppose you’re dealing with a more intricate or specialized conveyor system. In that case, it may be beneficial to consult the equipment manufacturer’s documentation or seek assistance from us, who have experience in conveyor system repairs.
