Your manufacturer should be able to help you create a system that doesn’t need complete replacement every ten years or so.
How difficult is installation? You should always ask how long the installation process is, and how much it will cost. Your manufacturer should be able to give you a free estimate so that you know the costs beforehand.
How difficult is the maintenance process? Most powder conveying systems are low maintenance, but when something does break, you want to know what that process will be like. Ask questions like, how expensive is it to change this belt? How much will it cost me? And how easy is it to get replacement parts?
