Regular Inspections

Visual Inspection: Regularly inspect the exciter and its components for any visible signs of wear, damage, or leaks.

Check Bolts and Fasteners: Ensure all bolts and fasteners are tight and secure. Vibrations can cause them to loosen over time.

Inspect Bearings: Check the condition of the bearings for signs of wear or damage. Ensure they are properly lubricated.


Follow Manufacturer's Guidelines: Use the type and amount of lubricant specified by the manufacturer.

Regular Lubrication: Regularly lubricate the bearings and other moving parts as per the maintenance schedule.

Check Lubricant Levels: Ensure that lubricant levels are maintained within the recommended range.

Alignment and Balance

Check Alignment: Ensure that the exciter is properly aligned with the vibrating screen.

Balance Exciter: Ensure that the exciter is balanced to avoid uneven vibrations which can cause excessive wear and tear.

Keep Clean: Regularly clean the exciter and surrounding areas to prevent dust and debris build-up.

Check for Blockages: Ensure that there are no blockages in the lubrication passages.

Electrical Components

Inspect Wiring: Regularly inspect all electrical wiring and connections for signs of wear or damage.

Check Insulation: Ensure that the insulation on all wires is intact to prevent short circuits.

Replacement of Worn Parts

Monitor Wear Parts: Regularly check wear parts such as gears, seals, and bearings for signs of wear and replace them as needed.

Stock Spare Parts: Keep a stock of commonly replaced parts to reduce downtime during maintenance.

Vibration Analysis

Conduct Regular Analysis: Perform regular vibration analysis to detect any unusual vibrations or patterns that may indicate a problem.

Adjust Settings: Adjust the settings as necessary to ensure optimal performance.
