Electronic warning systems from ContiTech increase operational safety of belt conveyors

Conveyor belts are subjected to heavy loads in many applications. Years of stress and sharp-edged objects can leave their mark on conveyor belts. Conti-Tech has developed innovative electronic conveyor belt warning and inspection systems to detect damage at an early stage and monitor the condition of conveyor belts. The systems meet high standards and can cope with the extreme use requirements while guaranteeing a high degree of safety for the entire system.

Conti Protect warning systems

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. Conti Protect Splice Elongation Measurement is designed to monitor large belt conveyor systems, and detects irregularities in the splice length with the help of magnetic markings.

Conti Protect Belt Rip Detection detects longitudinal rips in the conveyor belt early on with the help of vulcanized conductor loops. With improved conductor loops and a lower electromagnetic susceptibility to faults, the belt warning system prevents incorrect messages and thus expensive system standstills. Moreover, online support is also available: On request, ContiTech experts can log into the system and check and optimize processes via remote maintenance.

Conti Inspect Systems

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. With the help of laser sensors, the mobile Conti Inspect 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 Conti Inspect Continuous Surface Inspection System. The most modern scan technologies are used to inspect the conveyor belt surface and to gain a detailed image of the belt surface and quality. Conti Inspect 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. Conti Inspect Cord Monitoring monitors the steel cord of the carcass with a magnetic-inductive procedure and allows its condition to be assessed precisely.
