In spite of careful converting and problem free installation of the conveyor and transmission belts it is possible that there are some difficulties. We help you to find the reason for it. We recommend possible measures for eliminating the problems to ensure an optimal running process.

Belt slips over the pulleys – heavy abrasions at the band edges

Problem / Measurepossible solutions
  • pulleys are adjusted insufficiently
  • failure at the pulleys
  • dirt stacking at the pulleys
  • pay attention to the exact
    parallelism of the pulleys, if necessary
    clean or change them
  • wrong cut belt edges
  • faulty joining
  • damaged belt
  • repair or change the belt
  • irregular absorption of humidity because of  faulty storage
  • store the belt cool, dry and clean, protect it from dust and UV radiation
  • irregular loading of the belt
  • equal allocation of the loading
  • too low belt tension
  • raise the basic tension, tool up the pulleys convex

Joining opens

Problem / Measurepossible solutions
  • wrong or failure type of joining
  • choose the joining according to the application
  • tighten the belt too much
  • correct the belt tension
  • inadequate belt
  • adapt the belt quality to the application
  • belt speed is too high
  • correct the belt speed
  • pulley diameter is too small
  • use bigger pulleys or change the belt material
  • incorrect placed belt
  • pay attention to the correct rolling direction
  • dirt stacking at the pulleys
  • clean the pulleys regularly
  • too strong start-up
  • let the belt start-up slowly
  • belt is overheated due to too much slip
  • adapt the belt tension

Profiles separate from the belt or break

Problem / Measurepossible solutions
  • pulley diameter is too small
  • enlarge the pulleys or change the belt quality
  • profiles are beating or grinding
  • check the conveying machinery for a construction fault and if necessary change the type of profile
  • belt is running not straight
  • arrange the pulleys in a parallel
  • belt is overloaded
  • equal allocation of the loading
  • chemical aggressive operating conditions
  • adapt the quality of the belt and profiles
  • insufficiently profiles
  • adapt the profile to the application
  • faulty profile welding
  • repair or change the belt

Slipping of the belt

Problem / Measurepossible solutions
  • insufficiently surfacing of the pulleys
  • coat the pulleys with roll surfacing
  • polluted running side / pulleys
  • clean the belt / pulleys
  • belt adhesion too high
  • change the belt quality
  • low drive
  • change the belt quality or raise the engine power
  • belt is too heavy
  • change the belt quality
  • too low belt tension
  • correct the belt tension

High abrasion at the carrying or the running side

Problem / Measurepossible solutions
  • adverse operating conditions
  • adapt the belt quality
  • goods to be conveyed are not suitable
  • change the belt quality
  • blocked or nagged pulleys
  • repair the pulleys if necessary change them
  • dirt stacking at the pulleys
  • clean the pulleys regularly
  • wrong belt choice
  • change the belt quality

Transmission belt causes high operating noises or belt is vibrating

Problem / Measurepossible solutions
  • too low transmission belt tension
  • adapt tension to the type of transmission belt
