Pipe Conveyor Profile Monitoring System

FLSmidth Mining

To ensure your FLSmidth pipe conveyor runs smoothly and safely, we offer this patented safety device for monitoring the belt rotation, as undetected conveyor belt rotation can lead to:


  • The possibility of accidents, compromising operator safety
  • Damage to infrastructure and equipment
  • Long downtimes
  • Long sections of the belt needing to be replaced.


If the carrying belt profile exceeds the allowable limits, there’s the possibility of the pipe entering the discharge pulley without opening, causing damage to the belt.

We have designed and patented the application of utilising “Light Detecting and Ranging – LIDAR” technology, whereby sensors will sense pipe rotation and downstream adjustable panels will correct the rotation. A further set of sensors after the adjustable panel will monitor if the excessive rotation has been corrected. If the rotation is too severe and cannot be controlled then the system will issue a warning and stop the conveyor, preventing potential damage and injury.



This monitoring system ensures:


  • Increased belt life
  • Increased safety
  • Minimised downtime
  • Maximised efficiency.
