Table 1422 Materials handling energy savings conveyors

Problem Solution

Excessive idling 1. Install controls to keep conveyors running only when loaded

2. Wire conveyors to light switch Motors running at less than top load 1. Downsize motors and install slow-start controls

Motors burn out 1. Institute preventive maintenance program for motors (see Section 14.1.1)

2. Replace single-phase with three-phase motors concentrate on these, and start again.

When this monitoring has shown that a particular measure is particularly effective, find out why, and copy its best features elsewhere. If a measure did not work, find out why and make sure that the bad features of it are not being duplicated elsewhere.
