CONTI Protect Belt Monitoring Systems
Industrial and mining applications move heavy loads that can be very abusive to conveyor belts. In addition to impact and abrasive effects of the material being conveyed, conveyor belts are often subjected to conditions that cause damage, such as trapped material due to spillage, chute plugs, overloading, slip and other common issues. In these environments, keeping the belt running is crucial for economic efficiency and success. If there is a long-term shutdown of a critical conveyor system, the entire production chain often goes down, resulting in enormous financial losses.
Innovative monitoring systems make it possible to determine the exact condition of a conveyor belt at any time. By monitoring belt health, it’s possible to manage the belt’s condition to ensure that the system runs trouble-free. While the belt is running, any detected issues are identified and prioritized by the system for maintenance and repair based on the size and position of the damage. The system data can also be used as an aid to identify systematic issues that, when addressed by proactive system maintenance activities, will improve the belt’s operating conditions. Prevention of belt degradation leads to longer belt life and potentially avoids catastrophic belt failure.
CONTI Inspect Belt Monitoring Services
Frequent Belt Scanning or on Demand
The CONTI INSPECT series has been designed to ensure that damage caused to the conveyor belt as a result of wear is detected timeously in order to maintain the high quality of the conveyor belts during operation. CONTI INSPECT enables continuous belt scanning during conveyor operation at full belt speed. As a result, inspection time, cost and effort can be reduced to a minimum. The CONTI Inspect system allows maintenance to be planned quickly, easily and in advance to enable you to make the most effective use of scheduled conveyor downtimes.
The CONTI Inspect series comprises Cord Condition Monitoring (CONTI CordInspect), Belt Thickness Measurement (CONTI WearInspect) and Belt Surface Inspection (CONTI SurfaceInspect). These systems are mobile and can be used flexibly. A full service by our trained Continental field engineers is available. A detailed report of the inspection is generated which provides a precise description of the abrasive wear, damage to the belt surface and the state of the tensile carrier.
