CBGuard in a cement plant

Operating principle

The CBGuard works similar to X-ray systems in health diagnostics or at airports.
Its main components are a generator-tube module, a receiver panel and a control unit.

The generator produces artificial X-ray energy from electricity. The X-rays penetrate the running conveyor belt and then impinge on the detection board, an amorphous silicon imaging panel.

Similar to a digital camera's image sensor chip, photodiodes generate electrical signals in proportion to the light received. The CBGuard software analyzes the greyscale images tranferred at high speed and assigns certain events to them. Depending on the combination, size, intensity and position of the originally tenthousands levels of grey, conveyor belt failures are determined.

Virtually no additional radiation from CBGuard Life Extender

To use a CBGuard Life Extender is safe.

The radiation source is insulated. A safety zone with a fence at approximately 2 m distance around the unit needs to be provided. The radiation outside the fence corresponds to the natural environmental radiation (<1 µSv/h).

The scanner is equipped with several safety devices. There is, inter alia, an interlocking system on the doors of the fence. Once the doors are opened, the generator is switched off.

The CBGuard does not contain any natural radionuclide material!
