Safe driving changes on conveyor belt (English)
The report deals with a concept development of safe driving changes in the pelletizing plants KK2 / KK3 LKAB. Because of security risk with a conveyor belt are so close by the band that being renovated the adjacent band has to be stopped. Since the entire production is dependent on the conveyor belt which are adjacent. This means huge economic losses for the company. Therefore, it is desirable to avoid this renovation, and this is why a concept to avoid this are required. The concept is designed for a safe renovation but all the machinery needs to be stopped. The report provide the information of conveyors construction, safety of work with rotating machinery. It is mostly focusing on the technical and mechanical solution of the problem and not so much to the safety law to get this a legal part to use. The problem has existed since the plants were built in the 80s. The reason why the problem is not resolved is that there is no similar product out on the market that can solve the problem.
