Operators of conveyor belt systems must often deal with the demand of increasing material throughput, while facing unscheduled downtime and high maintenance costs. There may also be issues with bottlenecks in the bulk material handling process and material spillage at transfer points to other conveyor belts, silos, or capital equipment like tripper cars, stackers, reclaimers or shiploaders.

Conveyor belts are often installed in environments with poor visibility, high dust loads, or exposure to rain and snow. Furthermore, they are often in remote areas that are difficult to access. This explains why optical measurement systems are often not suited to measure material across conveyor belts.

The iBelt, indurad’s radar based bulk volume scanner, addresses those problems and can help debottleneck key processes, optimize process performance, improve safety, and increase availability of critical equipment.

The solution can be deployed in mines, plants, smelters, stockyards, ports, and on balanced machines like stackers, reclaimers, shiploaders and unloaders. The solution is applicable to all bulk commodities, including, amongst others, crushed ore, coal, lignite, potash, sulphur, salt, cement, tar sand, grain or wood pellets. All indurad sensors are maintenance free, so regular cleaning is not required….
