Chain conveyor troubleshoot guide

  Problem Identification & Corrective Action Sl No. Problem Potential Cause Solution 1 Chain rises off from sprocket 1.Excess chain slack. 2.Excess wear at the bases of sprocket teeth. 3.Excess chain extension. 4.Foreign material stuck to the bases of sprocket teeth. 5.Reverse rotation of conveyor 6.Uneven chain tightening of chain 1.Adjust the amount of slack equally at both sides. 2.Carryout hard facing of the sprockets 3.Replace the elongated chain parts. 4.Remove the foreign material from the bases of the teeth. 5.Avoid reverse rotation of the conveyor when chain tightened is uneven 2 Chain separates poorly from the sprocket. 1.Sprocket misalignment. 2.Excess chain slack. 3.Excess wear at the bases of sprocket teeth. 4.Uneven chain tightening of chain 1-Adjust alignment. 2-Adjust the amount of slack.

Questions answers & calculation on Boiler draught & Chimney

1-What do you mean by the term draught? It is the pressure difference, which causes flow of gases to take places. 2-What is the function of draught in Boiler? To supply the combustion air required for proper combustion To evacuate the combustion products from the furnace or combustion chamber To evacuate the combustion products to the atmosphere So draught is the pressure difference between the inside the boiler and outside air. Inside the boiler pressure is due to combustion products (Flue gas) & outside pressure is due to fresh atmospheric air. 3-What are the different types of draughts used in power plant boilers? There are mainly two types of draughts. Natural draught & artificial draught Natural draught is generally obtained by Chimney Artificial draughts have main two types Steam jet: It is again classified into Induced & forced draught Mechanical draught: This is classified into Induced draught, forced draught & Natural draught
