Case Study: Entrance Drum Not Spinning

Home » Troubleshooting / Case Studies » Case Study: Entrance Drum Not Spinning
Description of Problem:

 

Customer reports that one of the belt conveyor entrance drums is not spinning.

 

 

Things to check:

 

First inspect closely for any debris lodged between the entrance drum and the top deck of the conveyor (see image). It is not uncommon for screws or other foreign material to lodge itself in this small gap.

 

It is very rare for a bearing to cause the drum to stop spinning. However, if you are unable to find any debris, it is possible you may have a bad bearing and will need to replace it.
