Crusher Pre-Operating Check List

May 27, 2023 nflg 0 Comments

A crusher not properly prepared for operation is unsafe equipment . Run a thorough check at the beginning of your shift. Don’t think twice – if you find something that needs attention. Report any equipment defects to your supervisor. The following is a brief checklist to follow prior to equipment start-up.

1. Make sure all guards and other protective devices are in place, secure and not damaged.
2. Check hydraulic fluid circuits and accumulator gas enclosures. Are they at their correct levels, correct pressure and completely leak-free? Loss of hydraulic pressure due to low fluid levels can lead to serious equipment failures.
3. Check every drain cock, valve, and fittings to be sure they are in place and secure.
4. Never adjust pressure relief valves to get higher operating pressures. The manufacturer’s recommended pressures give the safest performance with the longest usage.
5. Never tamper with equipment safety devices.
6. Check the equipment thoroughly for visual defects such as leaks, worn hoses or belts, or loose part.
7. Inspect your machine in accordance with the instructions contained in your operator’s manual.
8. Before start-up, walk completely around your machine. Make sure there is no one next to, under, or on the machine. Warn any personnel nearby that you are starting up.
9. Check equipment for warning tags.

Start-Up Safety

1. Follow the recommended start-up procedures outlined in the operation section of you instruction manual.
2. After the machine has been started, check all gauges and instruments to insure that everything is operating properly.
3. Shut down the machine immediately if any improper readings are observed.
4. Test all controls for proper functioning.
5. Listen for any report any usual noises.
6. Recheck alarms and other warning and safety devices.

Stop Operation Safety
