The task of managing dust suppression is a daily responsibility for quarry managers. If left unattended, dust leakage will reduce the efficiency of production by creating additional clean-up costs. Where dust is significant it can cause damage to the conveyor and its associated equipment. More importantly, the dust is a significant environmental issue to other workers as well as the community.
These pictures have been taken recently of a quarry customer’s mobile plant in Tasmania, where they have installed the polyurethane K-Snap-Loc Dust Seal System around the transfer point. Our customer was surprised at how easy it was to install and is delighted with its ongoing performance.
K-Snap-Loc is a practical and cost effective solution for all conveyor belt systems – both mobile and fixed plant. K-Snap-Loc installs by just pushing the bulb shaped head of the skirting into the existing mount. It is very lightweight and requires no extra fastenings so the whole installation process is very low on labour requirements.
K-Snap-Loc is very effective at sealing and containing even the smallest of dust particles. Unlike rubber, K-Snap-Loc has an inherent “memory-set” to apply consistent downward pressure on the belt’s surface. Even over any uneven surfaces created by the weight of the load on the belt in between the moving rollers, the shape of the engineered polyurethane will skim the belt’s surface without wearing the skirting prematurely, or causing any damage to the belt itself.
If you would like to request a sample of the K-Snap-Loc, we can simply post a section to you – just call one of our sales engineers on 03 8587 9111 or email us at [email protected].
