Dust is a pain that Kinder helps contain

Dust can be a byproduct for almost all dry bulk material processing industries – but it shouldn’t have to be simply accepted.

In addition to health concerns such as silicosis, the accumulation of dust can spread widely over the working area.

Dust may interfere with the correct functioning of the conveyor componentry and cause increased shutdown periods, component replacement costs, maintenance clean-up costs, stress for the maintenance team.

Kinder Australia’s Essential Seal can provide effective dust suppression around high pressure conveyor transfer points.

The Essential Seal consists of a K-Sure Belt Support System, K-Dynamic Impact Belt Support System, K-Snap-Loc Dust Seal, K-Containment Seal, and K-AllShelter Capotex Conveyor Belt Covers.

The combination of these components transforms dust susceptible transfer-points so that the surrounding area can be kept clean and safe.

The K-Sure Belt Support System solves belt sag problems by providing a consistent and stable support for the troughed belt profile, eliminating any moving parts and their associated ongoing maintenance.

K-Dynamic Impact Belt Support System improves material containment at the conveyor’s transfer point in very high impact applications. The centre of the K-Dynamic Impact Bed is suspended on anti-vibration mounts which significantly reduces the risk of belt damage.

K-Snap-Loc Dust Seal is an engineered option that is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications. It made from a high-performance polyurethane which can withstand even the most highly abrasive applications. High temperature formulas available.

The K-Containment Seal enhances the success of the outer seal by reducing the high internal pressure experienced inside the chute and protects the vulnerable chute edges from damage.

K-AllShelter Capotex Conveyor Belt Covers acts as a protective barrier, aiding airborne dust reduction, protection from extreme environmental elements, helping to control moisture levels of conveyed materials, further controlling dust emissions.
