Due to the nature of bulk material conveyance, all belts are subjected to damage from a wide range of sources.
It is critical to detect the magnitude of damage as early as possible to prevent further damage and minimize lost production and downtime.
Physical inspections by maintenance personnel are generally time consuming, sometimes inaccurate, and in most cases not able to detect internal damage to the belt carcass. While regular physical inspections need to be a part of all preventative maintenance programs, new belt monitoring technologies are becoming available.
PHOENIX offers state-of-the-art protection systems, which effectively monitor virtually all aspects of the belt condition and operation on the system. Cover wear, cover damage, carcass damage, splice integrity, belt tracking and material build up are just some of the systems’ capabilities.
Immediate shutdown when predetermined parameters are exceeded, while allowing for continuous monitoring of potential problems and scheduled manual shut down for inspection. PHOENIX offers the most effective protection for your belt investment.
