How Can You Safely Maintain Conveyor Belt Rollers?


effortless and safe conveyor maintenance


Do you find yourself asking how to maintain your conveyor belt rollers safely? Mining operations require high efficiency and the importance of safety standards to ensure smooth and productive operations. However, traditional methods of conveyor maintenance, like roller change-outs, often fail to meet these standards, resulting in increased downtime, safety hazards, and operational costs. 

At Promet, we understand and have faced these same challenges in the industry. We are committed to providing innovative solutions to streamline conveyor operations and maintenance while prioritising safety and productivity. In this blog post, we dive into the common challenges faced during roller change-outs on conveyor systems and introduce the SPARCRIC G, the groundbreaking inflatable conveyor belt lifting system engineered to overcome these challenges and offer safer, quicker and more efficient solutions for your operations.


Challenges in Conveyor Maintenance:Brunone Blog - Pictures 2

Lifting a conveyor belt to replace the idler rollers or frames may be dangerous and time-consuming. Have you ever considered these problems when conducting your maintenance on your operation?

  • Lengthy procedures leading to lost production time 
  • Safety risks due to inadequate tools and heavy lifting 
  • Dependence on multiple operators for roller replacement 
  • Lack of specialised equipment for efficient maintenance 
  • Accessibility issues in tight spaces or remote locations 
  • High operational costs and resource utilisation


The Outdated Methods:

Over the years, in our hunt to find the right mining equipment technology, we have seen some outdated methods used when changing our rollers. These methods included using metal bars, hoists, forklifts, or trolley jacks to lift the conveyor belt to remove and change the damaged or faulty idler roller.

These methods not only constrain production, time, and accessibility when changing rollers but also increase the risk to workers' health and safety.

At Promet, we made it our mission to find the perfect innovative solution to eliminate the worries of conveyor belt maintenance.
