ContiTech has developed innovative electronic conveyor belt warning and inspection systems to detect damage at an early stage and to determine the state 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 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 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 lower safety factors and higher conveyor belt strengths," says Arndt Bunzel, application engineer of the Mining World segment at the ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group. 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.
