Conveyor Thermal Imaging

Conveyors are often repaired when something breaks. With Thermal Imaging, we can see stressed items BEFORE catastrophic failure. This saves down time and emergency repairs.  In the two following pictures our EPIC UAV was able to access areas that are normally inaccessible with the conveyor systems running. Parts and repairs could be planned for in advance.

South Side Conveyor needs inspected, motor is running hotter than north conveyor. Appears to be equal load. Not confirmed. Possible causes, Motor wear/malfunction, pulley/belt dragging, missallignment, lubrication, carry-back, belt cleaner

 

Belt is tracking off at head. Causes delamination, splice fatigue, drag induced stress on drive. First return idler is warm. A stuck idler can be a fire hazard and cause tracking issues.
