Conveyor Belt Drift

Peak Downs Mine
The aim of this project was to give the Peak Downs Washplant Operators some indication when the Conveyor Belts were drifting off track. The solution was to install Belt Drift switches on either side of each of the 10 conveyors that did not already possess such devices. They were designed to give indication on the HMI only when the Belts had drifted 5 degrees and to shut down the Conveyor if it drifted 10 degrees. This would then decrease the amount of down time if the Belt was to track off the original position.
