Minimizing maintenance costs and ensuring the adaptability of record-setting conveyor belt systems are benchmarks that Phoenix Conveyor Belt Systems has been setting itself for many years. The technology specialist will showcase impressive and clear examples of its innovative art of engineering with its cutting-edge conveyor belt concepts and captivating high-tech solutions at bauma 2013.
Phoenix Conveyor Belt Systems is introducing a revolutionary new development with PHOENOGUARD® PX. The autarchical monitoring system continuously measures the current overall condition of the conveyor belt, internally and externally. From notching on the covers to penetration of foreign bodies and damaged steel cords, this technology not only records damage but also intervenes automatically in the operation of the system in cases of emergency. If the system identifies damage that could result in breakdown of the conveyor belt, PHOENOGUARD® PX immediately shuts the conveyor system down. In the case of minor damage that has no direct impact on the condition of the conveyor belt, the system triggers an alarm. Users can adjust these settings in line with their requirements. PHOENOGUARD® PX uses this method of targeted intervention to prevent serious damage from occurring and dramatically reduce maintenance costs. If users want to get an impression of the overall condition of the conveyor belt, the system is able to provide a comprehensive snapshot image at the click of a mouse.
On show will be the range of PHOENIX S-Wall™ corrugated sidewall belt’s. These steep-angle and vertical conveyor belts are the latest state of the art products to be added to the Phoenix product range. Advantage’s of this system are that it eliminates the need for transfer points which in turn helps to minimize spillage. The system also allows for the maximum utilization of space, especially where this is at a premium. Phoenix has expanded on the conventional cold-bonding manufacturing technique, to now include Hot Vulcanisation. This method uses heat and pressure to vulcanise the sidewalls and cleats to the base-belt, leading to exceptional adhesion level’s. This allows the belts to be used in both higher temperature and particularly stressfull applications. This durable and resilient bonding method noticeably increases the service life of the belt whilst reducing maintanence costs in special applications.
Visitors will also gain an insight into the tremendous potential of the many solutions offered by Phoenix at bauma: The world’s strongest conveyor belt, belts with the highest conveying capacity – Phoenix technology is what lies behind these records and many other extreme conveyor belt solutions. Across the globe, the customized conveyor belts transport goods under the most complex of requirements.
