Types of Repair:
Reconditioning – The worn out top & bottom covers are put
back to the desired thickness. Edge & Patch Repairs, if any are also
Longitudinal Cut Repairs –Belts which are longitudinally cut
in two or more pieces due to foreign objects are brought back to the
original width & strength by hot vulcanizing. Additional Belts for
substitution at the cut area are provided by the customer.
Economics of Repair & Reconditioning:
It is highly techno-economically viable to undertake through cut
repairs and/or reconditioning of the damaged conveyor belts. A new
lease of life can achieved from the belts after investing about 40
-50 % cost, without sacrificing the reliability.
In fact in some cases, the life obtained from the reconditioned belt
has been much more than that obtained from the original belt
The repair & reconditioning works are undertaken by equipments &
facilities used for new belt manufacturing.
All the parameters such as adhesion strength, cover grade & its
properties, etc are similar to that of new belts.
In fact in some cases, the cover grades can be suitably modified to
attain higher life than that obtained by new belts.
