Insure all foreign material is removed from the conveyor and surface coatings are in good order.
All bearings and drives are lubricated and protected per manufacturers instructions.
Screws are rotated every two weeks.
The conveyor is protected from weather, moisture, and extreme temperatures. Do not use plastic or other
coverings which promote condensation under the covering.
