Fertilisers that are either sulphate or nitrate based are rated severe on Australian Standard corrosiveness classification tables. Sodium Chloride (salt) has an “extreme” rating. Building materials such as cement, mortar and gypsum plaster can also be corrosive while damp.
So we were very happy when we visited one of our fertiliser production customers on the outskirts of Brisbane last week, to see our
K-Polymer® Conveyor Rollers in operation, working reliably with no signs of corrosion affecting the rollers performance.
In humid and wet conditions, Kinder Australia’s K-Polymer® Conveyor Rollers offer the best material handling equipment solution to fix roller failure caused by corrosion. In most cases they are self cleaning by not allowing carry back to stick to the non porous shell, preventing belt mistracking, potential spillage or belt wear.
K-Polymer® Conveyor Rollers are fast becoming the preferred option over conventional steel rollers, and the light weight design means that risk of back injury is significantly reduced as manual handling is made easier, especially when carrying up steep inclines.
Rollers are interchangeable with existing steel rollers and our standard stock range covers conventional Australian shaft configurations but made to order dimensions can be accommodated easily.
