We are the largest stockholders of conveyor belting in the Southern Hemisphere.

Our range includes Polyester-Nylon (fabric) and Steel cord belting in all grades (Oil Resistant, Flame Resistant, Heat Resistant, Chemical Resistant, Cut and Gouge Resistant etc).
Belt Rip Detection
The Becker Belt Rip Scanner System is used to detect longitudinal rips on steel cord & textile reinforced belt to prevent greater damage to the belt by stopping the belt drives. About 90% of belt tears usually occur at the loading point and is mostly provoked by foreign bodies or objects. The remaining 10% is equally split up between the discharge / tail end and full run of the belt. The Becker Belt Rip Scanner System can be used wherever there is a danger of longitudinal belt rips. Inductive coils should be selected according to belt width and type of rubber. They can be supplied either as raw rubber plates for installing in steel cord conveyor belting during manufacture or as vulcanised plates for retrofitting for cold and hot vulcanisation.
The total number of coils necessary to protect the conveyor is user depended. If embedded in short distances (like 20m) in case of rip, the maximum tear will only be 20m.

How a conveyor belt works
A conveyor belt system consists of two or more pulleys, with an endless loop of belt—that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler pulley. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors; Those in general material handling such as those moving boxes along inside a factory and bulk material handling such as those used to transport large volumes of resources and agricultural materials, such as grain, salt, coal, ore, sand, overburden and more.
