A 1200 mm wide conveyor belt at a busy concrete plant was causing problems due to constant mistracking. The wandering belt was compromising performance of the scraper, creating material spillage, accelerating belt wear and causing structural damage due to the belt rubbing through the steel structure.

“This belt has always suffered from severe mistracking. We have tried to solve the problem in a number of different ways but nothing has worked. Since we fitted Centrax, mistracking has completely disappeared. It just goes to show how effective Centrax is, as this was a really challenging application.”
