Identifying the Five Costs of Carryback and How to Fix Them

Is product waste a problem in your operation? Is product falling off the belt onto the floor, causing slip hazards for your employees and leaving revenue to be swept away? Or is the product sticking to your other conveyor components, seizing rollers and damaging expensive conveyor belts? It sounds like residual material build-up on belts caused by sticky, oily, or even dry, floury conveyed materials “carrying back” past the discharge is costing your operation precious output, while negatively affecting worker safety and your bottom line.

In this Webinar, Flexco experts will explain what carryback is and how it could be costing your operation time, money, manpower, and more. We’ll walk through how to identify issues caused by carryback – diminished product quality, worker safety challenges, sanitation struggles, cross-contamination scares, and conveyor belt and component damage – and how to address them.

Where are you in the fight against carryback? Have you scheduled more downtime to clean up the mess, or increased your maintenance team to get everything cleaned and back up and running more quickly? Due to necessity, maybe you have come up with a belt scraping solution. Learn about engineered cleaning/scraping solutions that are now available and how they clean better than the improvised scraping devices you may be using. Hear real-life stories of how carryback reduction with engineered belt cleaners has increased product output, worker safety, and uptime for operations just like yours.

Reduce maintenance costs. Limit unscheduled downtime. Extend belt life. Identify the five costs of carryback and learn how you can eliminate carryback and increase your ROI by signing up for this free Webinar today.
