Crushing equipment is crucial for the production of aggregates. The crushing and screening equipment is subjected to extreme wear and tear due to the varying nature of rocks and materials being processed. However, proper routine and preventative maintenance can prevent premature wear and keep the equipment in good condition, thereby prolonging its lifespan. This blog post will discuss ten essential tips for maintaining your equipment and its worn parts, ensuring their longevity.

Regular inspections: It is essential to conduct routine checks of the equipment to ensure they are in good condition. Reviews help identify potential issues and take corrective measures before they cause extensive damage.

Lubrication: Proper lubrication is necessary for minimizing wear and component failure on the crushing and screening systems. Make sure to use the correct type of lubricant recommended by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and apply it according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Cleaning: Clean the crushing and screening plant regularly to ensure they are free from debris that can cause damage. Remove dirt or debris from And around the plant.

Tightening bolts and nuts: Ensure all bolts and nuts on the plant are to the recommended torque values. Loose bolts and nuts can cause the crushing tools to wear prematurely and even fail.

Replace damaged parts: If any crushing parts are damaged, replace them immediately. Continuing to use damaged parts can cause extensive damage to other parts of the equipment and even cause catastrophic failure.

Use high-quality parts: Always use high-quality OEM original crushing parts to ensure they can withstand the wear and tear of crushing rocks and stones. High-quality replacement parts may cost more upfront, but they can save money in the long run by reducing the need for frequent replacements.

Store tools properly: Store all spare parts in a dry and clean environment to prevent rust, corrosion and contamination. Keep them properly labelled and organized to ensure clarity during replacement.

Follow OEM manufacturer’s instructions: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for safely maintaining and replacement of the parts. Failure to follow the instructions can result in premature wear and even cause the warranty to become void.  should you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our team at or call our office at (403) 227-2820

Training and education: Provide training and education in the safe operation and maintenance of the equipment to personnel responsible for maintaining the equipment. Proper training can help prevent accidents and ensure maintenance is carried out correctly.

Regular replacement: Even with proper maintenance, the equipment will eventually wear out and need replacement. Please record the tool’s lifespan and replace it before it causes damage to other parts of the plant.

Proper maintenance of crushing tools is crucial for ensuring their longevity and preventing premature wear and damage to other parts of the plant. Regular inspections, lubrication, cleaning, and tightening bolts and nuts are some of the essential tips for maintenance. Always use high-quality features and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance and replacement. Proper personnel training is critical to preventing accidents and ensuring service and maintenance is carried out correctly. By following these ten essential tips, you can extend the lifespan of your crushing and screening systems to reduce the need for frequent replacements.
