Essential Flour Machine Daily Maintenance Tips-Maximize Milling Lifespan

Regular maintenance plays a vital role in ensuring the smooth operation and longevity of a flour mill plant. The flour mill machines need regularly maintenance so that they can work without troubles. Below is a flour milling machine maintenance checklist that instruct the daily maintenance of grains processing equipment.

  • Check the bearing temperature regularly.

If the temperature is too high, operator shall check whether the lubrication and transmission parts work normally, whether the rolling distance is too tight, etc. The causes to these problems shall be found out in time, so that operator can take corresponding measures. If the situation is serious, operator should stop the flour machine to check.

  • Check the tightness of driving belt oftenly.

If the belt is too loose, it will reduce the transmission efficiency and affects grinding effect; if too tight, it's easy to cause heat to the bearings, increasing power consumption and reduce the service life of the driving belt.

  • Check all drive components are tightly secured.

All transmission parts must be tightly fastened, and removed or installed by special tools. It is prohibited to directly use hammer or similar tools to hit.

  • Check pneumatic components before starting the flour processing equipment.

When starts FMFQ model flour machine, always check all the pneumatic components in the gas path, whether there is leakage or damage to the gas path and joints, and to check whether the supply gas pressure can meet requirements or not.

Besides, the service condition of synchronous belt should be checked often: if too tight, too loose, bouncing, deviating, or wearing seriously, it should be timely adjusted, repaired or replaced.

The oil storing in atomized lubricator of the gas source triple body should be checked regularly, and must add 20# spindle oil, so as to avoid blocking pipe holes.

  • Check the oil line timely (semi-annually).

For the oil used in the oil pump of  6F series flour machine, user shall choose 20-40# machine oil according to air temperature, or other hydraulic oil of the same viscosity. Oil line shall be checked every half year, and the impurities shall be cleaned.
