Understanding Conveyor Health and Efficiency: The Role of Proactive Monitoring

"  Our advanced conveyor rip detection and protection system, independent of belt brand, retrofits to existing conveyors without troublesome sensor loops or embedded antennae. It supports any speed, product, belt width or length, ensuring reliable, real-time detection and non-destructive condition monitoring to safeguard a conveyor system's longevity and efficiency against operational disruptions. "

BRaiDS offers real-time anomaly detection, allowing for the immediate identification of belt rips, belt misalignment and damage, thereby preventing further belt deterioration. This minimises unplanned downtime and production disruptions, ensuring operational continuity by addressing conveyor issues before they escalate.


The predictive maintenance capabilities of BRaiDS leverage AI and ML algorithms to identify potential failures before they occur. This proactive approach reduces maintenance costs, production losses and extends the lifespan of conveyor belts, supporting digital transformation strategies that seek intelligent mining or smart manufacturing.

In order to consistently verify belt integrity, BRaiDS employs a wide range of different sensor technologies to enable continuous monitoring of belt alignment and condition. It enables the early detection of mechanical issues through vibration and ultrasonic analysis and offers a holistic assessment of operating conditions affecting the belt. Additionally, it detects anomalies through acoustic signature analysis and identifies material accumulation patterns that signify potential system issues.

Ease of implementation is a key feature of BRaiDS. The system is designed for straightforward integration with existing infrastructure, requiring no belt retrofitting and ensuring minimal disruption during installation. This simplifies the installation process, making it accessible for various operational setups.

The system also ensures minimal ongoing maintenance. Durable sensor technology requires minimal user intervention once installed, reducing the resource strain on maintenance teams and allowing them to focus on critical tasks. This guarantees long-term reliability and operational efficiency with minimal oversight.
