LandGlass: How to maintain the chiller of the glass tempering furnace

Some advice from LandGlass about how to maintain the chiller of the glass tempering furnace.

The chiller of the glass tempering furnace consists of a roller table and two quenching boxes, Once there is glass broken in the chiller, the glass debris could damage the kevlar ropes on the roller, affecting smooth transporting of glass to the unloading table, resulting in interruptions of the entire glass tempering process.

If the rope is found broken, it should be replaced immediately. After removing the damaged kevlar rope, clean the adhesive residue off the rollers to ensure a clean and polished surface. When winding the kevlar rope, maintain proper tension to keep it straight and untwisted. Coil the rope around the roller with equal spacing and make it in the direction opposite to the rope of the neighbouring roller. Apply adhesive only to the side attaching the roller and make sure that there is no adhesive on the rest of the rope surfaces and secure both ends.

Check the conveyor bearings in the chiller regularly. Repair the bearing in time when it gets stuck. The broken wind pipe of the quenching system should be replaced to ensure the stability of the wind pressure.
