The Readymix Plant in Nottingham has recently had a Direct Drive improvement that will make the Plant more efficient, reliable and require less maintenance (it will carry on running on three motors should one of the motors fail). It will also standardise our Plant to enable a pool of spare parts to be maintained and used throughout their sister Plants.
The old chain driven system required extensive and regular adjustment, maintenance and repair. It was also badly worn and caused vibration through the entire Plant which led to all kinds of issues with delicate electronic equipment, sheared bolts and bearings etc.
Thank you to all involved for going the extra mile and completing the task in a timely manner and most importantly safely.
