Bulk Materials Handling Introduction Ebook goes into great detail about protecting conveyor rollers and bearings with dust control to reduce elevator maintenance.
Protecting bearing from
dust and water. Protection methods like labyrinth rings, rubber
seals, felt seals and shaft mechanical seals are described. Choice
of the appropriate shaft seal and seal configurations to protect
against dust and water ingress is critical. Numerous shaft seal
designs suited to contaminated conditions are reviewed.
There are many valuable
sections of this ebook explaining various way to protect your
material handling equipment from the harsh environments that this
equipment is typically used in. Of course the book would not be
complete without going over the standard elevator maintenance too.
