Conveyor Service Jig

Problem:

Original EPCM contractor had underestimated the requirements of servicing conveyor head pulley.

Conveyor head pulley was unable to be replaced by technician during major service.

Solution:

Trang performed a site visit and evaluation, and designed a certified service jig to allow access and replacement during major service.

Detailed stress analysis was performed, and detailed drawings were produced for fabrication.

Outcome:

  • Allowed service technicians access to head pulley
  • Created a safe working environment for technicians
  • High risk elements identified during assessment
  • Detailed engineering workshop drawings supplied
  • It was found that preliminary information provided was structurally inadequate, and was treated as a 'Near Miss' by site safety
