ContiTech describes its ContiAlert as a unique conveyor belt monitoring process that allows users to see belt wear in real time. “A red bonding layer below the top cover is exposed when it’s time to change the belt,” said a ContiTtech spokesman.
“In addition, the ContiAlert system is complete with a calculator that enables customers to determine how much time is remaining before the carcass is exposed and the belt is in need of replacement. It takes the guesswork out of belt replacement, and helps prevent downtime and increase uptime.” ContiAlert is available with belt types of Plylon Plus 250/2, 275/3, 500/4 and 600/3 belts with a minimum 3/16 x 1/16-in. to a maximum of 3/8 x 1/8-in. covers, and in abrasion-resistant compounds that include Defender Plus, Stacker, Survivor and Survivor Plus.
