These aero-mechanical conveyors offer an energy-efficient alternative to pneumatic conveying but correct rope monitoring is absolutely essential for optimum operation and maximum rope life. The patented integral Dynamic Automatic Rope Tensioner (D.A.R.T.) automatically measures and adjusts rope tension and also indicates when rope replacement is required. This reduces maintenance and energy costs as well. Since rope monitoring is automated, maintenance-related down time is minimized, labor costs are reduced, and productivity is naturally increased. Automated rope monitoring is especially significant for larger, taller conveying systems as it eliminates the need to use scaffolding or long ladders to check tensioning and rope wear.
