The Tru-Trac® Taper Trough Tracker solves coal mines coveyor belt tracking challenge.
#3 Overlander Crusher Belt
Tru-Trac® 1500mm Taper Trough Tracker
To prevent belt tracking issues causing the mine to experience material spillage at the cross belt sampler station on their overland conveyor.
The mine was experiencing material spillage at the cross belt sampler station on their overland conveyor. The spillage was due to the belt wandering out from underneath the station’s edge sealing system since they were not able to get the belt tracked before it went beneath the station. This off-centre loading, along with poor belt splicing in the load-zone, caused severe mis-tracking.
The conventional tracking idlers that were previously installed, used slow sensing ‘guide roller design’ which could not effectively track a fully loaded belt since their roller design applies limited and slow reaction pressure to the belt’s sides. So Tru-Trac recommended that our 1500mm Tru-Trac Taper Trough tracker be installed prior to the cross belt sampler. Installation at this strategic location would allow the Tapered Trough tracker to provide fast, reactive and continuous tracking of this high belt speed (4m/pm), high tonnage overland belt prior to the cross belt sampler station.
The Tru-Trac Taper Trough tracker completely eliminated the spillage by correcting the belt mis-tracking and allowing the sealing system to perform its job.
