Bucket elevator protection needs to be strengthened in the open air


In most cases, bucket elevator is used in the open air. Because the head of the bucket elevator is equipped with electric or transmission equipment such as motor and reducer, special attention is paid to the protection of these parts so as to prolong the service life of the equipment and reduce the maintenance of the equipment.
A square cover can be equipped with the belt bucket elevator when working in the open environment, which is 1 meter away from the bucket elevator head section. It is best to cover the bucket elevator head completely, and focus on the motor and the reducer. Because the motor in the head of the vertical bucket elevator is the power source of the whole equipment, if the roof is not added, it is possible to get water inside the motor under the influence of bad weather, such as rainy days or snow, which leads to the occurrence of short circuit. Therefore, it is necessary to install the cover under open air condition so as to ensure that the bucket elevator is not affected by the environment in the open air environment.
What's more, we need to pay attention to the problem of link chain bucket elevator motor wire connection. The electric wire connected by the motor is outside, and the insulation surface of the connecting wire will be aging under the wind and sun for a long time. In the case of long-term use, the electric wire connected by the motor can not bear the high load voltage, hence, the short circuit connection will occur. It is very easy to burn down the motor and even lead to the danger of electric shock. Therefore, the connection wire of motor must be well protected.
