Conveyor dryer electrical problems

950 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  RanarPostLA
Can anyone suggest an electrician in Northeast Colorado that works on conveyor dryers. I need work done on a older Chaparral Industries dryer. Also, can anyone suggest where to get parts for this old beast? It was likely built in 1997.

For parts, you can try reaching out to Chaparral Industries or checking online for places that sell vintage or hard-to-find equipment parts.
Take the failed parts (mechanical relay/switches and fuse failures were common
Also burned off terminal wires at heater.

You can take the parts to a local granger supply the can cross reference the 1977 parts and if they don’t have it they can get it through their efficient parts network. Conveyor motors can also fail the carry Dayton parts which are very reliable.

Once you have the parts hire an electrician near you so if something goes south when you’re in peak summer production he is your local electrician on speed dial. Good Luck!
