Cord Damage Detection

Functionality

  • Permanent magnet magnetizes steel cords in conveyor belt
  • At cord ends or breaks, the magnetic flux lines exit the steel cord
  • Sensor maps belt's magnetic characteristics
  • Continuous scanning procedure with real-time reporting at full belt speed

Application

CONTI CordProtect has been monitoring steel cord belts in mining and industrial applications since 2008. This reliable system is capable of detecting cord damage and prioritizing the damage based upon the size and location, while also monitoring for damage growth. By detecting critical damage, the issue can be proactively addressed before it becomes catastrophic, while avoiding a major unplanned maintenance event. Additionally, using the unique magnetic image of each splice allows for monitoring for change against its baseline data. By detecting splice degradation, these issues can be addressed during planned maintenance.
