Belt Watch

Avoid costly belt failures with fault identification and tracking. Our systems provide continuous (permanently installed) monitoring of your belt, notifying you immediately of impending major failures.

Monitoring the condition of a system not only improves it’s reliability, but also decreases maintenance costs.  With a conveyor belt condition monitoring system in place, your plant will reduce unscheduled maintenance, downtime and stockpile size requirements as well as increase belt lifetimes. 

Yellotec offers a permanent cost-effective steel cord belt inspection systems - BeltWatch, originally designed and developed by Westplex.  This system will identify and monitor steel cord defects, surface damage, splice deterioration and tracking deviations in real-time preventing serious problems.

The belt monitoring system captures measurements and images (optional) from different sensors; records all belt events including splice deterioration, cord corrosion, cord breaks, edge breaks, tracking/width deviations, rips and tears. The sensors may be shaped to match the belt troughing profile on either the load or return side of the belt.

Features

  • Continuous detailed tracking and belt-width measurement.
  • High-resolution whole-belt magnetic scanning, with defect recording.
  • Flat or troughed belt sensor assemblies.
  • Flexible and powerful communication options.
  • More than 30 types of condition readings, including splice deterioration, rips, cord break size and width, tracking, transverse defect distribution, etc
  • Accurate and immediate location of defects and changes in belt condition.
  • Multi-priority condition alarm outputs.
  • Long term defect and splice condition trending.
  • Inspection records of all defects.
  • Automated report generation.

Benefits:

  • Early identification of potential failures
  • Reduce correction and repair costs
  • Reduce down time
  • Extend maintenance periods
  • Extend belt life
