Model DB Damaged Belt Detector

December 20, 2012

The Model DB damaged belt detector is an effective means of protection for valuable conveyor belts. Used in pairs and positioned on either side of the conveyor belt, the Model DB is simple to install and designed to provide an early warning of possible belt failure. The detectors are heavy-duty units designed to work in any industrial environment, including hazardous locations. The units are connected by cable. One end of the cable mounts to a support bracket and the other connects to a spring-loaded ball located in the unit. The cable loops underneath the belt from side to side. A belt problem is detected when an object or a piece of damaged belt hangs below the belt’s surface and sweeps away one or both cables. As the cable is detached, it pulls the spring-loaded ball out of the socket causing the micro switches to sound an alarm or shut down the conveyor.
