How to Maintain Construction Machinery Parts II
Third, maintain Construction Machinery Parts regularly.
Inspecting and repairing construction machinery every now and then isn’t enough to keep it in peak condition.You need to create and follow a maintenance schedule. Include notations on how often each part of the machinery should be inspected for problems, repaired, and generally maintained.
Be consistent and make sure your inspection is thorough. Gaskets and seals should be regularly inspected to ensure they aren’t damaged or broken. Check belts and pulleys for proper alignment. Bolts should be closely inspected to determine if they have stretched. Any broken parts should be replaced immediately if they do not pass the test. Gears and other moving parts should be inspected for wear and tear, and then lubricated properly, cleaning off any excess grease.
Make a checklist of everything that needs to be regularly maintained and repaired, and then execute on it. By maintaining construction machinery frequently, you will extend its life and increase its performance.
Fourth, pay attention to wear and tear.
During normal operations, you may see signs that point to wear and tear. Be aware of these signs because they may signal problems that can cause machinery to malfunction more often or result in needed repairs or component replacements before your regular inspection.
Some common signs of wear and tear are vibration, heat, and belt shape. Vibration can be caused by a number of items, from misaligned belts to gear glitches. If you notice higher temperatures than normal, improper lubrication or overuse may be the root of the heat source. Misshapen belts are another clue that something needs to be repaired. Fix any issues as soon as they are found so they don’t cause worse problems later.
Fifth, keep employees trained well.
One of the most important ways to protect construction machinery is to make sure employees are skilled at operating it. All new employees must be trained thoroughly, and existing employees should be re-trained often to ensure everyone operates the machinery safely and at current standards. Without proper operator training, employees could damage the construction machinery parts or even injure themselves or others.
