Conveyor Belt Failure Detection via Vibration Analysis

Practical use of autocorrelation and circular waveform A coupling problem was identified and corrected in a conveyor belt at Vale’s Cauê Plant, in Itabira-MG, through continuous monitoring of the condition with triaxial vibration sensors from Dynamox. In the following video you can also see the image of the coupling, which shows damage to the elastic… Continue reading Conveyor Belt Failure Detection via Vibration Analysis
