Conveyor roller failure is the leading cause of belt damage and has been identified as a primary ignition source in underground coal mine fires. Australian owned, Mackay based company, Vayeron ® ''s Smart-Idler ®, provides operators extensive information on the condition of rollers helping mine operators minimise expensive failure events.

Conveyor Belt Tracking Systems Reduce Hazards, …

This family of responsive conveyor belt tracking systems mitigates misalignment, rather than correcting it after the fact -- even on reversing belts -- to promote conveyor efficiency and safety. A mistracking belt can contact the mainframe, seriously damaging both the belt and the structure, resulting in excessive spillage and even creating a potential fire hazard.
