ASGCO®– Eastern Conveyor Services Division Provides Critical Solutions to the Aggregates Industry
Challenge: There was no easy access to the splicing area on this conveyor system.
The tail pulley was obstructed by both the equipment and the surrounding structure.
In order to string the belt on such an elevated, inclined conveyor, the belt would
need to be held over top of the system with a crane, which would bring up safety
concerns that would need to be dealt with. The elevation and incline also made
transporting the vulcanizing equipment much more difficult.
Solutions: ASGCO® recommended using the CONTIFLEX® textile reinforced
conveyor belt which is highly engineered for steep-incline conveying. The extra strength
meets the grueling demands of this heavy duty quarry conveyor system. A crane would
be needed to hold the belt over the system during the stringing and a man lift for
the non-catwalk side.
Results: The CONTIFLEX® textile reinforced conveyor belt is highly engineered
for steep-incline conveying. It’s extra strong for the grueling demands of this heavy
duty quarry conveyor system. The vulcanized splice is much stronger than a
mechanical splice and makes for a smooth transition as the belt travels through the
belt scrapers. The customer was very pleased with the performance of the belt.
