The ICO Conveyor Belt Arrestor has been designed and developed to catch (arrest) any incline conveyor belt that brakes or snaps due to normal wear and tear on incline conveyor systems. The Conveyor Belt Arrestor is mounted below the head pulley where the most belt breakages occur.
The Conveyor Belt Arrestor catches both the top and bottom conveyor belts within 0.3 of a second and prevents it from running back down the incline. Both ends are then in close proximity to facilitate easy splicing.
