Background story – general explanation of circumstances: This customer had been experiencing problems on this critical conveyor feeding the primary crusher because the very hard and sharp rocks being carried were gouging and ripping the belts, They had tried belts with tensile strengths as high as 1000/4 and also steel cord but the belts were being destroyed within a very short period (maximum six months).
