Since 2005 ICO has designed, manufactured, and installed ICO Conveyor Belt Arrestors to catch broken or snapped Conveyor Belts. ICO has installed Belt Arrestors on conveyors ranging from as small as 500mm to as large as 2,400mm. ICO has installed over 350 Belt Arrestors world-wide and can assist Engineers and the design office with the correct Arrestor for each conveyor and application.

ICO’s Belt Arrestor are 100% mechanical devices, which operates under the tension of the conveyor system, as soon as loss of tension is detected in the conveyor belt (due to a snapped belt), the Arrestors move from an open to close position within 0.3 of a second. ICO’s Arrestors catches both the top and bottom  conveyor belts and prevents the conveyor belts from running back down the incline. In doing so it prevents the loss of life, loss valuable production time and damage to the structure. The device requires limited monthly maintenance and can easily be reset after operation.

Our current Arrestor models are all based on the technology and innovation as described in patent 2016/08911, overcoming the design and functional limitations of the original 1997/11189 patent. The 2016 patent has added holdback functionality to our Combined Top and Bottom Arrestor with the patented P-Lock system.
