Conveyor belt skirting system
1st Quarter 2019, Other technologies


New to the range of bulk handling systems from BLT World is the contact-free AirScrape conveyor belt skirting system, which significantly reduces material spill, dust formation and explosion hazards at transfer points and other critical sections in the conveyor chain. Because this system hovers freely above the conveyor belt, skirt friction and belt damage is eliminated and service life is extended.

“The AirScrape system operates according to a new principle where it hovers at 1 to 2 mm on the left and right side above the conveyor belt. These blades deflect larger particles inwards, while using the air flow of the conveyor belt and conveyed material to create an inward suction, flowing any dust and fine particles back into the product flow,” explains managing director, Ken Mouritzen. “Through these diagonally fitted plates and the speed of the running belt, air is drawn from the outside inwards. As a result, neither the dust nor material can escape.”

With the AirScrape dust-free and contact-free side sealing system for belt conveyors, there is no skirt contact and therefore no belt wear or damage. Motor power requirements are reduced as there is no belt-skirt friction and because there is continuous skirting with no gaps, product loss is minimal. This system, designed and manufactured in Germany to the highest quality standards by ScrapeTec, is available throughout Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.
