Previous problem:

Our customer was experiencing significant product spillage issues causing the trough rollers at the transfer point to seize and wear out prematurely, pictured here below.

This is a common problem experienced at transfer points where the force of the conveyor feed through a drop chute from another conveyor, causes belt edge sag in between belt supporting rollers.  Not only is there spillage, but the skirting arrangement present wears prematurely and a dust hazard is created.

This problem creates:

  • Material Spillage
  • Premature Wear of Conveyor Componentry (K-Skirting Seal skirting was being changed out every months)
  • Health and Safety Hazards
  • Unscheduled Labour Clean-Up Costs

Resolution:

The problem was effectively resolved by replacing the existing impact wing rollers under the transfer chute with our, K-Sure Belt Support System.  This belt support configuration utilises a series of low friction polymer slider bars.   K-Sure Belt Support’s universal adaptor brackets are then arranged to the existing frame and assembled precisely to suit the conveyor’s troughed belt profile.

The System requires no pre-engineering, adjustments or special tools and the outcome has successfully removed the occurrence of belt sag.  Now there is no spillage to clean-up, and the already present K-Skirting Seal can effectively contain the blow-out pressure of the dust particles.

Pictured here is the spillage-free transfer point area, the Kinder “K” universal bracket’s, K-Sure Belt Support’s red polymer slider bars.  K-Skirting Seal was pre-existing, but now functions as it was intended and controls dust particles from becoming airborne.
