Steel Conveyor Roll RepairBack to
||Pulp and Paper Manufacturing Saw Mill|
Steel rolls used to convey lumber would become slippery when wet. The conveying of lumber and overall manufacturing process would slow considerably in wet operating conditions.
Steel rolls were roughened using a grinder and wire wheel attachment. Following roughening complete coating areas were chemically cleaned using Cleaner Blend 300. Floor Grip epoxy component was mixed and applied to a thickness of 16 mils, using a paint brush. Floor Grip silicon carbide granules were sprinkled using a spaghetti strainer/ seed sower. Floor Grip silicon carbide granule were pressed into the epoxy mixture by "back rolling" using a 1/8" nap paint roller. Floor Grip provided an slip resistant coating improving the process of conveying limber in wet operating conditions.
