The belt transport of 0-200 mm chrome ore at one of the largest stainless steel producers in the world caused many problems. A 1400 mm wide, mobile conveyor belt that is loaded at four points regularly malfunctioned due to skewing of the upper part. This unplanned shutdown of the conveyor caused major production problems. The installation in 2013 of only one CenTrax upper part steering roller system solved this problem once and for all. To date, CenTrax is functioning perfectly, still with the original set of rollers.
After this successful project, the customer decided to replace 12 steering rollers of a competitor brand at another installation, which were built into a 400 meter long conveyor belt. In spite of these 12 steering rollers, the conveyor belt continued to skew, resulting in damage to the belt edges and belt construction. Another problem was the excessive wear of the steering rollers. As a replacement, 9 CenTrax multi steering roller systems have been mounted in the bottom part. Since then, skewing has been a thing of the past. Thanks to these successes, CenTrax has been chosen as the standard for the entire factory.
