Three Tips For Maintaining Your Cone Crusher

Blog

If you use cone crushers throughout the course of your agricultural business, it is vitally important that you do all you can to maintain this piece of equipment. There are some important steps for maintenance that you will need to follow in order to make that happen. In that regard, you should follow the information presented in this article so that you are able to get the absolute most out of your cone crushers.

Take Care Of Your Oil 

If you expect the absolute best care out of your crusher, it all comes down to you maintaining the proper lubrication. It cannot be overstated that the oil that you use inside of your cone crusher is the most important component in keeping it running well. When the oil becomes contaminated, your bearings and gears will begin to slow down and cause incredible damage to your crusher. Make sure that you look after your hydraulic system and train and change oil whenever necessary. As a general rule of thumb, you should check your oil bearings every 500 hours of use, look into your oil levels every single day, and swap out your oil entirely every 600 hours of use. Following these rules will put you on the right track with your cone crusher.

Protect The Environment In Which Your Crusher Is Stored

Aside from the hands-on care that you provide for your cone crusher, be sure that you are always keeping it in a sound environment. Storing your cone crusher in a room that is filled with grime, mud, and other particles will only degrade your system before its time. You will cause your cone crusher to die out on you and experience filter clogs and electrical shorts. Always make sure that the room is clean and tidy and that you are allowing as few outside elements inside as possible.

Get A Maintenance Plan From An Agriculture Equipment Specialist

When you really want to take your maintenance to the next level, you should make sure that you get in touch with an equipment maintenance specialist who can help you out in that regard. They will be able to sell you an ongoing maintenance plan for your cone crusher that keeps it in the best condition possible. Regardless of what type of issue you have with your cone crusher, they will be able to pinpoint it and rectify the issue before it becomes more devastating. Investing in one of these preventative maintenance plans from an agricultural equipment specialist is one of the most sound investments that you can ever make.

With all these things in mind, take great care of your cone crusher and do not hesitate to get in touch with a professional who can help you further.

Growing Better Food

When I started farming on my land, I thought of it as mostly a hobby. Instead of worry about the quality of my beets and potatoes, I focused on having fun with my kids and learning how to operate my farming equipment. However, as time went on, I realized that farming offered some pretty valuable opportunities. I started selling some of my goods at local farmer's markets, and it was amazing to see how much people enjoyed my stuff. I want to teach you how to grow better food, so that you can eat better and make the world a wonderful place.
