CBGuard

The ultimate complete conveyor belt monitoring system

Outstanding conveyor belt safety and efficiency

Conveyor belts are exposed to high loads and dangers. Apart from countless bending cycles, the belts suffer from permanent material loading impact, from worn, failing or wrongly adjusted conveyor parts, from entrapped objects and from normal ageing.

It is essential to detect damage as soon as it occurs so that action can be taken before it worsens.

The CBGuard Life Extender delivers precise real-time information about the condition of all of the belt's components. Virtually every cubic millimeter of the conveyor belt is captured in real-time.
 
The CBGuard is recording all data, and comparing it with target values. If a deficiency exceeds the preset threshold, the system will automatically trigger a customized reaction.

Complete knowledge of the conveyor belt condition

The software generates a complete analysis of all threats to the belt.

Visually undetectable damages, for instance broken or corroded steel cords, are captured by the CBGuard at an early stage.

Irregularities like holes, delaminations, foreign objects, belt slippage, protruding cords, edge damage, abnormal cover wear, even insufficient belt cleaning, are automatically marked and signalled.

CBGuard's smart software not only generates, from its continuous assessment, a live video with marked deficiencies of the belt, but also tells you exactly what kind of damage it is, how severe it is and where it is.

The condition of the belt can be observed from any place in the world in real-time over the internet.

No other method available today delivers such a wealth of precise information about every detail of a conveyor belt.

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.

Preventing disastrous consequences of splice failure

As the weakest parts in conveyor belts, splices put a higher risk on your operation, with possible dramatic consequences.

The CBGuard Life Extender is scanning all of the splices. Each splice in a belt is individually recognized in the database and compared with the target condition.

Any deviation from the desired splice condition will automatically trigger an alarm or even stop the conveyor, for instance in case of threatening failures and opening of a splice.
 
Through timely detection of such degradations, severe accidents can be prevented.

Reducing costs

The CBGuard Life Extender is providing precise diagnoses, avoiding premature replacement of the belt due to assumed deficiencies. The belt can be operated up to its real safe limit.

Damages can be eliminated opportunely - avoiding costly downtime and worsening of the damage. Repairs can be performed at the optimum point of time; not unnecessarily early and not too late, as would happen as the result of visual evaluation.

The CBGuard Life Extender is an important part of the mine's or plant's prescriptive resp. predictive maintenance programme. It can be integrated into the Industrial Internet of Things.

If it is intended to refurbish conveyor belts, the optimum time for doing this, as well as the eligible segments, can be determined by the CBGuard.

CBGuard has proven its reliability and efficiency in more than 300 conveyor systems.
