1) Introduction

Rexline Engineering had supplied Operations with Steel Breaker Belt in July 2018.

This belt was proposed to by Rexline Engineering Technical Team after conducting site audit at request. As part of its re-initiation of operations, all its conveyor systems were audited to identify issues. During the extensive survey of the Site, Rexline Engineering identified issues with the current conveyor belt that it uses against the parameters of operation at site.

Upon approval, Rexline Engineering got its factory to exclusively manufacture and supply this belt for.

Rexline Engineering with its technical expertise in the conveyor industry manufactured the belt to specifications and supplied to on schedule.

2) Case Study

As per Audit conducted by Rexline Engineering on Site, the Site Engineers identified the issues pertaining to the existing conveyor belt. Most sections of the belt are worn out along the length of the belt. Also, there are areas where cuts and gouge have been observed.

Rexline Engineering has identified various factors that led to the belt being cut and gouge. The Rollers used on the conveyor system was way past its service life and required urgent replacements. This led to the belt not being conveyed as required and tracking of the belt.

The Belt Currently in place was not rated for Super Cut and Gouge Resistance. Furthermore, the Belt was only rated for 800/4 Ply Rating with only Fabric Ply as its setup

Rexline Engineering Proposed a SCGR Belt with Steel Breaker along with Higher rating catering to existing conveying tonnage rates.

Also, Rexline Engineering supplied the splice kit necessary on site for splicing of the belt.
Super Cut and Gouge Resistance (SCGR) delivers superior resistance to heavy impacts, abrasion and gouging. Super Cut and Gouge Resistance (SCGR) rubber cover compound provides high end performance in applications where increased resistance to heavy impacts, abrasion and gouging is required in Nickel Operations.

Benefits of High Tensile engineered reinforcement on the top cover:
The Super Cut and Gouge Resistance (SCGR) Belt that we offered is equipped with High Tensile engineered reinforcement on the top cover to provide efficient protection. This High Tensile engineered reinforcement on the top cover provides extra impact and rip protection for the belt and potentially allow smaller pulley diameters, serving as the basis for a longer service life and a lower risk of severe damage.
