Dust can be a by-product for almost all dry bulk material processing industries but doesn’t mean it should be simply accepted.
Appropriate dust containment is necessary or else it may interfere with the correct functioning of the conveyor componentry.
Kinder Australia’s field application specialists and engineers have identified two solutions that can work together effectively to tightly seal problematic areas along the conveyor; K-Snap- Loc® and K-Containment® Seal.
K-Snap-Loc® is a practical and cost-effective solution to dust control for all conveyor belt speed applications. Its unique design can be applied into most conveyor systems. The Uni- Strut mounting can be welded to your existing system, then the specialised seal snaps into place.
The K-Snap-Loc® engineered polyurethane’s inherent “memory-set” is used to apply downward pressure onto the belt’s surface to create a fine tight seal, so there is no need for manual adjustment. Because of the low coefficient of friction there is a power saving by producing 60 per cent less drag on the conveyor belt than traditional skirting rubber.
K-Containment® Seal is engineered with low friction polyurethane and resistant to wear. It features 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.
K-Containment® Seal enhances the success of the outer seal by reducing the high internal pressure experienced inside the chute and protects the vulnerable chute edges from damage.
K-Snap-Loc® and K-Containment® Seal are proven solutions you can rely on to effectively seal the conveyor and prevent dust escape.
