Conveyor belts are subjected to constant impacts from material falling onto the belt. Foreign bodies, wrongly installed scrapers and chutes are also a risk for the conveyor belt. The earlier that damage is detected, the lower will be the repair costs.
The PHOENOGUARD® system permanently monitors the conveyor belt's surface. The magnitude and type of damage that is recorded or the occasion to set off an alarm or stop the system can be adjusted at will. The surface comparison between the belt's previous and its present revolution is possible, so that the damage can be detected. The belt monitoring system works without contact or wear. PHOENOGUARD® consists of one or two line cameras and fluorescent tubes with oblong reflector.
All of the conveyor belt's surface defects are stored in a data bank and are available for further analysis. The damages are graphically and numerically classified according to magnitude or other criteria.
