If a Conveyor belt is not properly supported – if it sags between idlers – the forces of loading will create spillage at the transfer points. Gaps between the belt and skirting system will develop, allowing fines and dusts to escape. This fugitive material is expensive to clean up and worse, it can build up on conveyor components where it can wear idlers, seize bearings and become entrapped in pinch points to gouge the belt.
The SPILLEX Universal Support System can be effectively applied to minimise belt sag between the idlers and thus improve the performance of Spillex skirt board sealing system. The support system is of Universal type which is fully adjustable to suit various belt widths, troughing angles and horizontal and vertical dimensions encountered at material handling site.
