Dryer system maintenance is critical to safety, emissions, efficiency, reliability and durability.
Safety — The area around the dryer system needs to be cleaned regularly. Dangerous areas need appropriate signs and guards, and they should be roped off during normal operation. Warning lights and horns need to be installed. Worn seals and airlock blades need to be checked and replaced because they allow excess air into the drying system, which increases the risk of fires and explosions. These items need to be checked as routine maintenance on a regular basis to ensure the safety of plant personnel and site visitors.
