Too few idlers installed at the loading point is often the cause of Belt Edge Sag.
This can be easily be resolved by providing support under the trasnfer point using a slider bed. By doing this any belt edge sag will be eliminated and the effectiveness of the skirting seal will be increased, so reducing material spillage. If material spillage is not resolved it can have the following negative impact on production:
- Loss of quarried material
- Premature skirting replacement costs
- Labour clean-up costs
- OHS injury costs
- Downtime loss of production costs
- Damage to surrounding conveyor structure
Read this recent quarry customer case study on how material spillage was fixed in 45 minutes, by installing the K-Sure® Belt Support System – a retro-fit design so the customer did not need to drill any holes, modify or fabricate any special parts. All conveyor hardware products supplied were “off the shelf items”. After installation the benefits that our happy customer is now receiving are:
- Eliminated spillage
- Eliminated moving parts
- Increased skirting and belt life
- Improved belt tracking
