Dear all,

I would like to gain some knowledge on the following topics:

1. What all parameters (thickness, surface hardness etc.) can be checked to determine the condition of a belt conveyor (steel corded as well as nylon ply)?
2. What are the different principles on which online monitoring of a belt conveyor is based? I have heard that such systems work on magnetic induction method or ultrasonic waves. How exactly do they work?
3. How are such systems linked to logic for intervention in case a fault is detected?

The material to be handled is crushed coal.

If the forum already consists of such article kindly share the link to the post.

Thank you.
