ASGCO® – Troughing Tru-Trainer® Conveyor Belt Tracking System Solves Belt Tracking Problems at this Copper Mill Process Facility
This copper mill facility was processing crushed ore the consistency of sand. They were using conventional guide roller trackers that kept failing. Due to the design of the guide rollers they continually came in contact with the belt’s edge which made them slow to react and caused premature “side wear” on the belt. The operators were prone to “tying the guide rolls off” which eliminated “the ability for it to train/align the belt”. Also “build-up” of carry-back on the external pivot caused freeze-up (stop working) making it vulnerable to the elements of the harsh environment.
