ASGCO “Complete Conveyor Solutions” provides bulk material handlers ways to cut operating costs and downtime, along with improving the safety of their operations.

ASGCO provides a complete on-site survey of all the conveyor systems involved in each plant and produces a comprehensive report based on this inspection. Trained professionals walk each belt line looking for potential problems “from the tail pulley to the head pulley and everything in between,” with special emphasis on belt condition and cleaners, belt tracking issues, chute flow ASGCO provides bulk material handlers ways to cut operating costs and downtime, along with improving the safety of their operations.

ASGCO provides a complete on-site survey of all the conveyor systems involved in each plant and produces a comprehensive report based on this inspection. Trained professionals walk each belt line looking for potential problems “from the tail pulley to the head pulley and everything in between,” with special emphasis on belt condition and cleaners, belt tracking issues, chute flow problems, and potential safety hazards. This detailed inspection will identify critical areas of improvement to alleviate spillage along with fugitive material along the belt line and improve efficiency.

Once the survey is completed, a computer-generated report is created to include pictures and information regarding each situation found on the particular belt line, along with products and systems designed to alleviate those problems. This helps establish a baseline point of reference on each conveyor indicating what needs to be fixed urgently to what can be upgraded in the future to make each conveyor run to its full operating potential.

The ultimate goal of ASGCO’s conveyor analysis program is to identify areas of immediate improvement, as well as sites of future issues before they happen. This forward thinking approach will reduce unscheduled downtime, extend the life of the conveyor components, and create a much safer environment for operators.
