Therefore, the operating sensitivity is not reduced under severe environments. The Matsushima Belt Tear Detector from HMA INSTRUMENTATION can be installed without any modifications of the belt conveyor. Moreover, it can be installed while the conveyor is operating. It can detect longitudinal tears of conveyor belts due to steel pieces and/or bars instantly.
