Material spillage is a major productivity issue, especially at unstable areas such as the transfer point. If material is not contained properly, the results can be hazardous, creating piles to trip over and slip on. The clean-up and maintenance is costly and lengthy. The belt is also at risk of misalignment and damage.
The basic belt without a seal is ineffective in controlling spillage and an unsupported belt alone attempting to contain the full weight of material load would be vastly inadequate.
The K-Containment® Seal is the high-performance conveyor skirting solution for commodities including coal.
Engineered with low friction polyurethane, the K-Containment® Seal is resistant to wear. Featuring a slotted arrangement, which allows for easy installation adjustment. This is added protection so that the material cannot be entrapped, leading to premature belt damage.
The lightweight K-Containment® Seal should be installed inside the chute (transfer point) and continue to where it becomes more stable. This is to handle the high internal chute pressure, therefore reducing the load on the skirting seal. To maximize the success of the outer seal/skirting, the loading area must be properly supported.
The team at Kinder Australia is able to advise customers as to the best fit for them. The steel-backed polyurethane can be supplied bevelled or straight edged. The K-Containment® Seal is also available in fire retardant, fire resistant and anti-static formulas.
Keep it contained, and keep it clean.
