rEscan North America

By providing products and services that can detect problems in a conveyor system before becoming severe, rEscan can alert and inform on-site personnel and can help formulate an appropriate response to a problem - be it requiring repair, removal or further monitoring.  

This proactive maintenance can result in the conveyor system lasting well into the future and help minimize unscheduled down time and cost.  By utilising our remote and semi-remote systems this allows monitoring to occur at anytime without stopping the belt..

Cover Thickness and HardnessTesting

The AIMUltrasonic Thickness Testing Systems

The AIM and Ultrasonic Thickness Testing Systems allows the user to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of the covers on steel cord and fabric conveyor systems.  By measuring the cover thickness at regular intervals, it is possible to predict the end of service life of the conveyor belting due to cover wear.  This allows maintenance managers to budget for the capital expenditure years in advance.  Also, by measuring the cover thickness at regular intervals, any excessive can be detected and the cause rectified immediately.

Cover life predictions are simple linear wear projections taken over time, taking into account previous wear history.  They assume that historical wear patterns will hold true, and then project forward in time an estimated time of failure when the cover will wear down to the insertion layer.  Other prediction methodologies are available on request.

Cover Hardness Testing 

rEscan also provide Shore A cover hardness testing.  As the conveyor rubber ages, it hardens and the continuous movement of the covers can lead to cracking.  Any cracking in the covers has the potential to allow moisture into the cords, leading to corrosion and breakages. Repair of aged rubber is also problematic, with bond failure possible in splices and repairs due to the inability of new rubber to bond sufficiently to old. 

By regularly testing the hardness of the rubber, maintenance personnel can be adequately forewarned prior to the rubber hardness becoming an issue with the operation of the belting.
