Conveyor belts are subject to longitudinal through cuts due to unwanted foreign material like sharp boulders, steel chute liners, iron objects like tooth points etc. Sometimes, edges of the belt gets damaged due to swaying of conveyor or other reasons. This can cause further damage to the steelcords and can be resolved by repairing the edges.
A total savings to the tune of approx. 60% to 65% can be achieved by using reconditioned / repaired belts instead of new belts on account of lower capital investment, lower inventory costs & lower interest costs.
