Conveyor Belt Scanning – Detecting Belt Damage For Quick Repairs

Conveyor belts are the key to transporting bulk materials from one point to another. It is crucial to any conveyor system and any damage to the belt can lead to extended downtime and production chain collapse. It results in high sales losses for the manufacturers. The operators focus a lot on prevention than on cure. The conveyor belt scanning systems are the ideal solution to prevent extensive damage to the belt. These are designing maintaining high industrial standards and ensure safety levels. Any damage to the belt is a defect. The condition occurs when the impacting materials are subjected to high load. It helps to identify damages early and in great detail, where intensive servicing is an absolute necessary. The whole process can be time consuming, cumbersome and involves a number of technicians. Conveyor belt scanning systems inspect the belt thoroughly to check for external and internal damages. The use of ultra modern technology guarantees a thorough scan by creating digital belt maps that records the damages. The reports are generated automatically and it reveals the information on the damage. The analysis offers and ideal condition for systematic recording of surface damage, making prediction and preparing for cover plate repairs. The scanning system detects the system for wear and tear by measuring the cover plate thickness over the entire belt length on the carrying side and the pulley. The conveyor belt scanning system provides ultimate protection from total failures. Damages like longitudinal rips and splice failure on the conveyor belt have serious repercussions and leads to total failure of the system. The monitoring system detects damages at an early stage and stops the system, when necessary. The scanning can range from monitoring the length to stretching the splices for a thorough examination of the belt using X Ray technology.


The scanning systems helps to protect the investment of the company by maximizing efficiency and avoiding any production interruptions. The latest technology in this field is onsite mobile scanning, belt thickness measurement and splice monitoring. This will take the scanning technology to the next level. The integrity of the steel cable belt is crucial when it comes to heavy duty and high tonnage applications. The splice has to be strong to maintain integrity and prevent any unwarranted failures. The scanning looks into the carcass ad detects the magnetic fields that arises at the cord ends or incase of any defects. This goes to prove that even minute damage is detected and reported. The scanning of cord damages are alerted at the right time before it could lead to a bigger problem. The scanning reveals all the findings on the cover damage condition across the length of the conveyor belt. The scanning report is supported by images to identify and understand the extent of the damage. The graphic interfere in the scanning system allows the user to recognize the potential problem without losing any time. The technicians are qualified for the job and trained to undertake any kind of belt scanning monitoring.
