The inspection of the traveling grate is often followed by an alignment during the next shutdown in order to correct the identified and diagnosed issues before they develop into major problems.
Inspections by certified experts
Metso offers standardized inspections for the main process equipment of your pellet plant. The report gives a description of equipment condition and a root cause analysis for damage and extraordinary wear. Recommendations are provided for operation, maintenance and alignment, required repair and replacements, possibilities for up-grades, modernizations and capacity enhancement as well as for spare part stock holding.
Proper alignment is critical
It is essential that the traveling grate system, consisting of rails, sprockets, sealing and pallet cars is sufficiently aligned for efficient and cost-effective operation. Alignment is also a key factor in extending the lifetime of equipment and optimizing maintenance costs. Scheduled inspections well before the next major plant shutdown provides the basis for adequate planning of component sourcing and maintenance activities.
