REMA TECHNOLOGIES

Maximizing the profitability and sustainability of your conveying systems

REMA TIP TOP TECHNOLOGIES focus on optimizing the use of our products and services to remain market
leaders. We offer unique solutions for specific operations that focus on profitability and sustainability.

REMA TIP TOP TECHNOLOGIES constantly develop new systems that will significantly prolong the lifetime of our clients conveyor belts. As conveyor belts are the backbone of any mine and their greatest expense, our new systems can be utilized on all types of conveyor belts whilst in full operation.

Our systems have been designed to provide our clients with greater insight into the current status of their conveyor belts by providing real time data showing any form of damage, allowing planned maintenance and shortening production downtime.

Our Monitoring Services for your Conveying System

RFID Belt Rip Detection System

  • Unique RFID Antenna ID Code
  • Stops the belt when longitudinal rips are detected
  • Antennas can be detected at 15m/s
  • Antennas installed at shorter intervals to offer greater protection

REMA TIP TOP TECHNOLOGIES have designed a Belt Rip Detection System that makes use of the latest RFID technology. By using our new RFID antennas we are able to offer protection to all types of conveyor belts ie. steelcord, plied belting and PVC belts. With the RFID antenna costing a fraction of conventional antenna sensor loops we are able to offer our clients significant savings. Due to the lower price of the single RFID antenna we are able to install the antennas at shorter intervals offering greater protection to the conveyor belts by minimizing longitudinal rips within the belt. Our Belt Rip Detection System does not only detects our unique RFID antennas, it also detects inductive sensor loops making the system incredibly versatile by monitoring belts with any existing sensor loops installed.

The RFID Belt Rip Detection system consists of 3 components illustrated below

SYSTEM KEY FEATURES:

System key features

  • Our specialised RFID chip can withstand temperatures up to 230 degrees Celsius, therefore having zero effect on the tag during the vulcanization process
  • The system can be operated by the control room operator directly from the control room
  • Multiple network connectivity like TCP/IP, WIFI and Serial are available
  • The RFID reader can detect the unique RFID antenna at a speed of 15 m/s
  • Each RFID antenna has a unique identification code
  • The software generates a map of the entire belt after only one full revolution

BTM Belt Thickness Monitoring System

  • Shows all wear and damage to the conveyor belt
  • Accurate reporting of belt wear or damage
  • Predicts the remaining lifetime of the belt
  • Generates a belt image after the first revolution

One of the most important factors for our clients is the increased life expectancy of their conveyor belts. The BTM system continuously measures wear and wear characteristics on conveyor belts by use of ultrasonic soundwaves, these sensors generate over 1.000 readings per second in order to present an accurate graphical representation on the clients belts.

The system makes use of a RFID tag which allows our software to pinpoint any damage on the belt, then it compares the damaged area to historical data and calculates when this damaged area will become critical. In doing so, our clients are able to: 

  • plan for replacement belts efficiently, as the system can predict the belt life accurately. 
  • plan for maintenance shutdowns, therefore controlling the downtime.

Scan Images generated by the BTM System

SCAN IMAGES GENERATED BY THE BTM SYSTEM

Image 1: Shows a splice at 2 meters with normal wear to the belt, however slight impact damage can be seen at 12 meters, and damage to the side of the belt occurring between 15 to 19 meters.
Image 2: Shows a splice at 52 meters with impact damage clearly being displayed
between 55 to 70 meters, this image also shows that the wear on the belt is one
sided, this is caused by the belt being misaligned at the loading point.
Image 3: Shows normal wear to the belt between 301 and 320 meters, with a splice
at 319 meters.

System Key Features

  • The conveyor belt does not have to be stopped in order for the scan to take place
  • The system has zero contact with the belt
  • Can be installed on new and used belts
  • Unlimited belt image history is stored in the system database to compare historical and latest scanned images
  • Any damage to the conveyor belt can be identified accurately using the RFID tag and belt length scale provided
  • The system instantly generates a belt image after the first revolution

Steel Cord Scanning System

  • Available as a modular or fixed installation 
  • Shows all cord damage to the conveyor belt 
  • Indicates the health of all splices 
  • Operates continuously while the belt is in full operation

Our Steel Cord Scanning System provides the world’s most accurate and reliable detection of broken cables, tension breaks and conveyor belt splices in realtime. The system is modular and can scan conveyor belts of any width.

The system does not present raw data to the user, it processes the raw data via specially developed software and then displays the results graphically.

Scan Summary

Image 1: Shows a steel cable broken on the left side of the conveyor
belt at 24.4 meters from the starting point of the scan.
Image 2: Shows a splice at 89,5 meters.

System Key Features

System Key Features
