The Scan Belt Tear Detector system detects a longitudinal conveyor belt rip by monitoring the edges of the conveyor belt via two striker arms that are in constant contact with the belt edges. In the event of a conveyor rip, a conveyor belt tends to either collapse or ‘push out’ along the length of the rip due to the troughing angle and inclination of the idler rollers. This results in a change of the of the conveyor belt width which is detected by the Belt Tear Controller. In addition, the linear alignment of the striker rollers could also provide belt training information.
