PROJECT AT A GLANCEClient: Alcoa
Bucket Elevator Survey and Stabilization – Alcoa – Goose Creek, SC
Alcoa Mt. Holly had an issue with belts being worn out quickly on their pot line bucket elevator. The OEM recommended that the belt problem may be due to the bucket elevator being out of plumb. Berenyi Incorporated was tasked with surveying the bucket elevator and providing a plan to straighten and stabilize. Not only was the elevator out of the manufacturers’ recommendations for plumb but it was also exceeding deflection limits due to wind.
