“As the plant was naturally ageing, significant wear was experienced in all impact areas. The life expectancy of the standard skirt rubber was on average around 2 months. Of greater concern to general operations was the increasing evidence of wear to the actual conveyor belt.”
Resolution: “The installation of the K-Snap-Loc Dust Seal has tripled the wear life compared to that of standard skirt rubber. Encouragingly there have been no further signs of wear to the belt itself.
“Another improvement from the installation has been to our permit system for access, which has been reduced in time considerably since we do not have to go inside the conveyor to fit the K-Snap-Loc skirts. This has saved us 4 hours in valuable maintenance time.”
