Dunlop Conveyor Belting: A Guide to the Types of Belt Edge used in Rubber Conveyor Belts

Drachten, Netherlands – Considering the huge amounts of money spent on conveyors and conveyor belting and the numerous challenges they can present, deciding on exactly what type of edge a conveyor belt should have does not really sound particularly important. But strange as it may seem, selecting the right type of belt edge can have an enormous impact, especially in terms of cost. Here, Dunlop Conveyor Belting’s Les Williams throws some surprising light on the subject and provides some useful hints on how to potentially save quite a lot of money.

Braeside (VIC), Australia The video presents the K-Dynamic Impact Idler, ideally suited for heavy duty applications, particularly within mining environments and for high capacity conveyors, with no limit on belt speed, belt width, lump size, TPH or drop height. Kinder Australia technical engineers can custom design and manufacture heavy duty frames to suit specific materials handling applications. Continue reading Kinder Australia: K-Dynamic Impact Idler

Martin Engineering: New Stainless Steel Conveyor Belt Cleaner offers High Performance and Long Life

Neponset (IL), United States –A new secondary conveyor belt cleaner has been engineered specifically for challenging applications where traditional designs fail to deliver the necessary performance or wear life. The CleanScrape® Secondary Cleaner (CS2) from Martin Engineering is particularly effective in conditions where continuous production is a high priority or cleaner service is difficult, including corrosive or high-temperature environments. Continue reading Martin Engineering: New Stainless Steel Conveyor Belt Cleaner offers High Performance and Long Life

Controlling Material Flow in Pits: Complete Plant equipped with Belt Scales

By L. Henke Belt conveyors are the standard for the transport of materials in pits and quarries. To control the material flow and the inventory of these materials, belt scales turn out to be the optimum choice, as they are easy to retrofit in existing plants. Continue reading Controlling Material Flow in Pits: Complete Plant equipped with Belt Scales

Something Smells wrong: are Lives being put at Risk by Conveyor Belt Manufacturers

By Leslie David – The harmful and, in many cases, potentially lethal substances used in industrial manufacturing processes have been a cause for concern for many years not only amongst consumers but also those who come in contact with them in the course of their day-to-day work. When the European Union’s REACH regulation EC 1907/2006 came into force in June 2007 those concerns should have largely been dispelled.

How to achieve a clean Conveyor Path: Innovative Belt Cleaning Technology eliminates Carryback at Cement Plant

By J. Cairns After installing an innovative primary cleaner designed for punishing applications a Detroit cement producer could stop excessive carryback and equipment fouling. With a significant reduction in carryback, spillage, and labor for cleanup, the plant was able to improve work­place safety, lower the cost of operation and see a quick return on investment.

Conveyor Belt Monitoring: New Technologies for the Protection of Conveyor Belting

By A. van Staden In mines and many plants of the processing industry conveyor belts are the lifeline of the production system. It is, therefore, of paramount interest to keep the conveying system up and running and recognise potential hazards (far) ahead of their occurance.

Belt Replacement at a Long Distance Pipe Conveyor: Belt Design, Installation and Power Measurement

By A. Minkin, A. Jungk and T. Hontscha When the Arch Western Coal Skyline Mine decided to replace the old belt of its long distance BC-8 pipe conveyor, a new belt had to be designed to be suitable to the existing routing. In addition, a special installation procedure had to be developed to minimise downtime during the belt installation and commissioning.

Why new Splices fail – Splice Failures resulting from Rubber Compound Incompatibility

By A. van Staden An ailing economy has forced users of conveyor belting to find ways in which to extend the life of the belt. This can be achieved, but only if the conveyor system is well maintained and operated within original design parameters. In the recent past, a significantly aged belt was replaced by a new belt, thus virtually eliminating the risk of failure. Now, however, taking into account the cost of belting and the lack of capital in many companies, every last bit of life is squeezed out of a belt. Due to these factors it has become quite a common practice to replace only severely damaged portions of belt.
