Short belt life
A large goldmine in Ghana was experiencing a problem on the conveyor directly under the crusher. The drop height from the crusher is very high and the material large and abrasive, resulting in short belt life.
After a detailed survey of the conveyor site we recommended Dunlop UsFlex as an alternative. We supplied an 1800mm, UF1000/2, 10 + 3 RE covers UsFlex belt, which we installed and spliced.
This was the first Dunlop UsFlex belt to be installed in Ghana and our customer’s faith in our recommendation has paid dividends since the UsFlex belt has lasted four times as long as the previous belt. We are delighted to have received a repeat order as a result of this success.
