New entrant to conveyor monitoring market in Australia

Complete Knowledge of Conveyor Belt Condition

The software generates an intelligent, holistic analysis of any kind of threat to the belt.  Arising damages not visual externally, for instance broken or corroded cords, will trigger an alarm which advised the operator to carry out the repair as soon as possible.

Irregularities like holes, gauges, bubbles, foreign objects, protruding cords, edge damage, abnormal cover wear and even insufficient belt cleaning are detected and processed.

CBGuard also measures the belt thickness and yields timely information about the upcoming need for belt replacement.

Preventing Disastrous Consequences of Splice Failure

Being the weakest points in conveyor belts, splices put a higher risk on your operation.  CBGuard will be scanning all the splices.  Each splice will be individually recognised in the database.

Any deviation from the desired splice condition will automatically trigger an alarm or even stop the conveyor, for instance in case of threatening failure like excessive elongation and pulling apart of the splice.  Through timely detection of such problems severe accidents can be prevented.

The software generates an intelligent, holistic analysis of any kind of threat to the belt.  Arising damages not visual externally, for instance broken or corroded cords, will trigger an alarm which advised the operator to carry out the repair as soon as possible.

Installation and Set up

Its compact layout and low weight allows a simple and relatively quick installation.  Depending on the belt width the unit may only weigh 700kgs and has a size of 1900mm x 700mm x 1100mm for a 1200mm wide belt.

The preferred installation location is on the return belt, the belt needs to be flat to run through the unit.  The requirement is for power and communications facilities to be accessible, and the floor mounting should be on a concrete foundation.  There is the option to fabricate a steel frame to accommodate alternative locations.

A safety zone will be fenced or guarded to contain the unit, with an interlock on the gate if this is required.

Regulations for personnel qualifications for each state or territory will be considered.

Maintenance

The CBGuard is easy to use and requires minimal maintenance.  It is almost wear free.

The system can be operated continuously 24/7 or on demand, for example to scan one revolution each day, week or month.  It will automatically start and finish each inspection cycle and produce a report listing the deficiencies.

The CBGuard is suited for conveyor belts up to 3200mm wide, with a maximum thickness of 60mm and a maximum belt speed of 8m/second, and virtually any length.

The life of the x-ray tube for continuous operation is limited.  The software will signal when the tube is due to be replaced, which is a simple operation.
