The critical component in any conveyor transfer point is an effective sealing system. The seal should be located where the material is being loaded and continue to where it becomes stable. This is the last position to practically control spillage and dust. To enhance the success of the outer seal or skirting, the loading area should be properly supported.
Kinder Australia’s K-Containment Seal is a high performance, low friction engineered polyurethane system that provides exceptional resistance to wear. The slotted arrangement allows for installation adjustment to ensure that material cannot be entrapped leading to premature belt damage.
In many cases the outer flexible seal is ineffective in controlling spillage. An unsupported belt trying to contain the full weight of material load would be inadequate. Instead, to effectively contain bulk material the lightweight K-Containment Seal should be installed inside the chute to handle high internal chute pressure and therefore reduce the load on the skirting seal.
The steel-backed polyurethane seal can be supplied bevelled or straight edged. For Ceramic Composite options, please refer to K-Containment Seal’s product brochure.
