October Maintenance Tip of the Month

Dan MurphyDan Murphy, Micronics’ Field Service and Spare Parts Manager, is happy to share this Maintenance Tip of the Month for your liquid-solid separation equipment:

Minimize down time on your filter press by keeping up with regular inspection on your plate shifter.

Here are some key questions as you are inspecting your electro hydraulic plate shifter:

✓ Shifter tracks: Are they clean and free of debris?

✓ Shifter chain: Have I performed a monthly adjustment to chain tension to ensure operation with minimal slackness and balanced tension between the two rails?

✓ Shifter Parts: Eventually, we all need a new pair of shoes, and that includes your plate shifters. Replace carriage shoes and wear parts as necessary.
