We are looking for "on-line" belt rip detection unit.

This unit must also capable of detection rip on steel cord belt. When the belt rip, sometime the belt become 2 pieces, but sometime, the belt overlapping and the there is no spillage to activate any kind of sensor.

Can anyone recommend which product suit this application.

There are a number of quality rip detectors on the market. Both Richwood Industries and Arch Environmental have systems available in the US, which do not require the installation of wands or wires in the belt for sensors to read.

The use of sensors is the most sophisticated method of rip detection and there are a number of choices.

In order to advise you, I would need specific information on your belt lines.

You may contact me via E-mail at admconsulting@cs.com or via telephone at +1 330 494 1704 if you require more information.

All large steel cord manufactures offer retro fit of thier sensors into existing belting. A couple of points to consider though is...

1) total length of belting and required number of sensors. The generally accepted distance between sensors is 250ft. For long overland conveyors this could be expensive. For shorter belts the increment is usually around 100ft.

2) Age of the belting to be installed in. Obviously a belt with a long projected life span would be desired, however old belts subjected to the elements will show signs of aging i.e. cover hardness increases, and could create problems with an retro-fit, with regards to the covers bonding during the installation.
