FENNER DUNLOP INVEST IN CONVEYOR PULLEY TESTING
The Fenner Dunlop philosophy is about designing products and solutions that reduce downtime, increase belt life, and being available to offer the best support, which is what the customers ultimately require.
Fenner Dunlop ACE are leading the industry in Pulley Overhaul and Supply, a critical part of the conveyor operations. The branch in Queensland is equipped with clean assembly facilities, automated build procedures and now a state-of-the-art pulley testing machine, which can run conveyor pulleys before installation at the customers' site.
The pulley testing machine is the first in Queensland, offering customers full confidence that Conveyor Pulleys are fit for purpose before installation. The device operates from a VSD Drive which can run the conveyor pulley at the same speed as the intended install location. Fenner Dunlop ACE then complete a vibration analysis and thermography to ensure the bearings, seals, shell and shaft are all fitted correctly.
The pulley testing engine is also being used to examine conveyor pulleys that have been stored onsite for long periods of time, identifying issues before the conveyor pulleys go into operation, eliminating any potential production downtime.
“It is about providing our customers complete confidence and transparency towards our quality conveyor supply” said Brendon Harms, Fenner Dunlop ACE Queensland Manager – Conveyor & Components Division.
