The Belt Scanner represents the very latest, state-of-the-art technology in steel cord belt condition monitoring. It uses a patented high-resolution Roller Transducer to detect belt carcass and splice damage.
Damage detected and quantified includes: Broken, Rusted or Corroded, Kinked, Fatigued and Missing cords. The Belt Scanner also detects Splice anomalies and provides 24/7 Disastrous Event Detection (DED). It can also be used to provide “Programmed Parking” stopping the belt where you want during maintenance.
IRT’s Cover Care is a device specifically created to facilitate spot measurement of the cover thickness in steel cord conveyor belting. It is a fully portable instrument which uses an inductive hand-held probe to detect the steel cords. It is extremely simple to use and provides very accurate readings with a resolution of 0.1mm.
REMAINING COVER THICKNESS MONITORING
IRT’s Remaining Cover Thickness Monitor is an on-line device that can measure the remaining cover thickness of either the carry or pulley covers of Steel Cord belting while running under normal operating conditions.
This model is designed to be permanently fixed to a conveyor structure, with the underside of the Sensor Head 30.0 mm above the surface of the steel cords and is easily integrated into a site SCADA system.
IRT’s Rip-Detection System is unique in that it can be fitted to most steel cord conveyor belting without modifying the belting. No loops or antennae are required. It injects acoustic energy into the target belting at the sensing location by a transmitter transducer and this energy propagates across the belt using the rubber and steel matrix as the transmission medium.
This acoustic energy is sensed by a number of receiver transducers, located at various positions across the belt. When a longitudinal rip occurs between the transducers, the level of acoustic energy arriving at a receiver is either reduced or lost completely. This reduction of energy level is used to detect the rip.
