The pressure on companies to minimize down time and reduce costs is ever increasing and to many, the essential, yet costly and time-consuming, area of conveyor belt maintenance is a challenging area.
Monaflex has utilized 40 years’ experience in the tire-repair industry to develop a radical, lightweight conveyor-belt maintenance system, the company said. The Monaflex system operates effectively at 30 psi (rather than the traditional 100 psi) meaning no special equipment is required
The lower operating pressure means the bulky, heavy duty frameworks of traditional systems can be abandoned and the system can be transported in any standard vehicle and installed by a smaller than usual number of people
This means that you can achieve the same quality finish but:
- The system itself is more cost-effective as there is no investment in pricey heavy metal work and assemblies.
- There is reduced capital outlay due to the lack of special vehicles or lifting equipment
- A reduced core maintenance team size (no more need to utilize valuable resources to lug exceptionally heavy equipment by foot to remote locations)
Aggregates producers seeking to optimize their operation, those hoping to set up as independent contractors or those expanding their small business can all benefit from the cost-saving benefits of the Monaflex system.
