BCM sys­tem con­veys big ben­e­fits

The Australian Mining Review - - RIO TINTO IRON ORE -

CONTITECH, part of Con­ti­nen­tal AG, has re­leased in­for­ma­tion about its new belt con­di­tion mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem, CONTIMul­tiPro­tect.

This lat­est so­lu­tion com­bines the fea­tures of the tra­di­tional CONTIRipPro­tect and CONTICordPro­tect into one mul­ti­func­tional sys­tem for in­creased fea­tures and con­nec­tiv­ity.

With more than 100 units al­ready in­stalled world­wide, the ContiMul­tiPro­tect sys­tem has taken Belt Con­di­tion Mon­i­tor­ing (BCM) to the next level.

Cus­tomers can now ben­e­fit from au­to­mated con­tin­u­ous mon­i­tor­ing of their con­veyor belts for cord in­tegrity, splice con­di­tion, and de­tec­tion of lon­gi­tu­di­nal rips, to max­imise op­er­a­tional safety, in­crease up­time and lower their main­te­nance and un­sched­uled stop­pages.

The CONTI Mul­tiPro­tect mon­i­tors the belt con­tin­u­ously as a per­ma­nent in­stal­la­tion, analysing the mag­netic char­ac­ter­is­tics of the con­veyer belt and alarm­ing when it de­tects a lon­gi­tu­di­nal rip, cord dam­age and de­vi­a­tions in the splice.

All of this is vis­i­ble on de­mand from a nom­i­nated desk­top, lap­top or through alerts is­sued to site op­er­a­tional sys­tems, email or SMS.

It con­sists of three prin­ci­pal ar­eas of con­veyor belt mon­i­tor­ing: lon­gi­tu­di­nal rip de­tec­tion, cord con­di­tion mon­i­tor­ing, and splice mon­i­tor­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to ContiTech Aus­tralia’s re­gional man­ager Ben Wood there is a fair amount of flex­i­bil­ity in terms of sys­tem func­tion­al­ity.

“Our sys­tems pro­duce a cus­tomised belt map and re­port im­por­tant belt-re­lated con­di­tion.

With re­ports on de­mand, stop at lo­ca­tion fea­ture and cus­tomis­able alarm and ac­tion pa­ram­e­ters, the sys­tem mon­i­tors a cus­tomer’s as­set 24/7 in real time,” Mr Wood said.
