Problem
A large copper mine was experiencing extremely poor belt life on one of their large Kawasaki crushers. Due to the extremely abrasive dusty environment the raw edge belts would eventually slip and deteriorate. This would also cause excessive wear of the pulley grooves. Belts were only lasting approximately 6 months.
