Concrete batching plants entails regular maintenance. Maintenance is critical to extend the operating life of the plant, improve production quality and performance, and prevent failures. Components of a concrete batching plant may wear out or be damaged over time as it operates under heavy workloads. Therefore, regular maintenance will allow the plant to have fewer breakdowns, create fewer maintenance costs and keep it running smoothly for longer.
In concrete batching plants, maintenance work may include the following:
Cleaning: Regular cleaning of the concrete plant is important. Soil, sand, and other materials may accumulate on the components and equipment of the batching plant, and these may reduce the performance of the batching plant.
Lubrication: Lubrication of concrete batching plant components reduces friction and prevents failures. Lubrication is especially important for the moving parts and hydraulic systems of the concrete batching plant.
Checks: Regular checking of the control systems of the concrete batching plant and making the necessary adjustments ensures the correct operation of the plant. Checks also ensure that measurements are performed correctly, and that concrete quality is checked.
Replacement of Components: Components of a concrete batching plant wear out over time and can be damaged. Therefore, regular replacement of damaged or worn parts is important to improve the efficiency and performance of the batching plant.
Regular maintenance extends the useful life of the concrete batching plant and ensures the production of high-quality concrete. Pi Makina provides maintenance instructions to the user and recommends that you work in line with periodic maintenance schedules.
