The refurbishing of our 1.7m Roediger unit is nearing completion. The press has been gone through inclusive of roller re coating and bearing replacement, even a new paint job! BP16 has been a favorite of our operators and rental clients alike over the years. It is a three belt system with an independent gravity zone that allows, for some sludge streams, a quicker processing rate and better gravity zone dewatering. Place your rental orders now for when it is ready to go to work!
We would like to thank all of you who stopped by and said HI at the TCEQ show this year in Austin. We had a lot of productive conversations. We would like to congratulate Cindy with Invista; lucky winner of our Samsung Tablet drawing. Hopefully we’ll see you all next year!
It has been our experience with our mobile belt presses and assisting clients with their equipment that no matter how diligent your winterizing maintenance schedule for a machine located in the colder parts of the country are, something usually needs some attention come the spring thaw.
The freeze thaw cycle of water through the winter months can be tough on a belt press. We drain and blow down with air all the plumbing on a piece of equipment multiple times in order to try and prevent pipes breaking but there always seems to be a cracked 90 or two. The best way to find these potential leak causing cracks and breaks is to water test your machine prior to putting it back in service. This usually will identify any major issues. Outside of that, pay close attention to all your lines the first few weeks of operation and be sure to have your parts inventory current for when a fix is needed. If it gets to the point were the spring repairs are hurting production, give us a call we would be happy to help and/or send one of our mobile belt presses to help keep you going while the repairs are made!
