Verstegen grab inspection

The overall condition of a grab should be regularly checked, so maintenance or repairs can never be a surprise. Our technicians can do an inspection on your grabs to determine the status of all crucial parts. The result is an overview of the necessary maintenance and a list of the parts that has to be replaced. Furthermore we can support your technical personnel with all repair and maintenance activities.

Wear

It should be clearly understood that every time the grab scales move through the material, all plates that are in contact with the bulk material will wear. Wear takes place gradually, but will never stop and therefore maintenance is required on a regular basis.

In these pictures the wear of the knives and strengthening plates is clearly visible. The wear of the knives causes material loss. The wear of the strengthening plates weakens the structure of the grab and causes cracks on several places.
