Belt Warning and Inspection System increases Operational Safety

Conti Protect warning systems protect conveyor belt systems from major damage, thereby making an important contribution to increasing operational safety, thanks to a reduction in damage-related idle times. The Splice Elongation Measurement is designed to monitor large conveyor belt systems, and detects irregularities in the splice length with the help of magnetic markings.

Conti Protect warning systems protect conveyor belt systems from major damage.

Whether in mining or in industrial use, conveyor belts are subjected to heavy loads in many applications. Years of stress and sharp-edged objects can leave their mark on conveyor belts. ContiTech has developed innovative electronic conveyor belt warning and inspection systems. They meet high standards and can cope with extreme use requirements while guaranteeing a high degree of safety for the entire system.

Conti Protect warning systems protect conveyor belt systems from major damage, thereby making an important contribution to increasing operational safety, thanks to a reduction in damage-related idle times. The Splice Elongation Measurement is designed to monitor large conveyor belt systems, and detects irregularities in the splice length with the help of magnetic markings. Monitoring the splice increases the operational safety of conveyor systems with ever lower safety factors and ever higher conveyor belt strength. Belt Rip Detection detects longitudinal rips in the conveyor belt early on with the help of vulcanized conductor loops.

On request, the system can also be checked and optimized via remote maintenance. Conti Inspect systems supply data that can be used to make reliable prognoses regarding the remaining service life of the conveyor belt and to estimate the investment costs more accurately. This makes an important contribution toward reducing operating costs and protecting the environment. The mobile Belt Thickness Measurement system measures the thickness of the conveyor belt across the entire length of the belt. Surface damage can be detected at an early stage with the revolutionary Continuous Surface Inspection system.

The most modern scan technologies are used to gain a detailed image of the belt surface and quality. Belt warning systems can be used during ongoing system operation. System holding times for painstaking inspections can therefore be avoided, and the outlay for conveyor belt inspections reduced. Cord Monitoring monitors the steel cord of the carcass with a magnetic-inductive procedure and allows its condition to be assessed precisely.

In the development of its electronic warning systems, Conti­tech leverages synergies from the company and builds on the expertise of the Continental Automotive Group, which develops and produces cutting-edge electronic systems for the passenger and commercial vehicle industry. Thanks to this collaboration, innovative solutions for enhanced safety in conveyor belt systems are created. The newly developed belt warning systems meet the high standards from the automotive field, and guarantee a high level of safety.
