Sometimes, Edges of the belt get damaged due to
swaying of conveyor or other reasons. This can cause further damage
to the steel cords and can be arrested by repairing the edges. In
such cases 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.
Thus it will be seen from all angles that by
virtue of high repair reliability, it is much more beneficial to get
belt reconditioned rather than using new belts, provided the belt
casing has enough residual strength.
