The conveyor is located in a large coal import terminal and is situated on the rail load-out facility. The conveyor has an extending section in order to unload at different points. The previous belts were failing at these points because excess force was causing the belt to be pushed down into the idler sets resulting in de-lamination. We recommended a change to a Dunlop belt, which has better adhesion and specifically to use a BVX-S belt which would have slightly thicker inter-plies to further minimise the problem. The Dunlop belt has been operating for more than 9 months and continues to work extremely well with no signs of delamination.
