Sam Veal, sales and marketing manager at Kinder Australia, said the award highlights a field that resonates deeply with the company and reflects its core value of innovation.

“Dust is a by-product for almost all bulk material handling industries,” he said.

“Kinder eagerly look forward to supporting and embracing dust containment and preventative solutions that will further elevate this remarkable industry that they are proud to be a part of.”

The team at Kinder Australia understands there are significant issues that arise if dust is mismanaged. The consequences of poor containment of dust can be detrimental on every level – whether it be risk to personal safety, the environment, and to the conveyor equipment itself.

Kinder has a team of field application specialists and engineers, visiting sites in person to gain a firsthand experience of the site conditions and a deeper understanding of the key productivity issues that operators face.

Kinder’s engineering team have developed specialised dust-prevention products including managing impact load zones with belt support technology, as well as skirting and sealing solutions, and belt covers. It’s Essential Seal range comprises of a selection of top-performing products, chosen for their combined effectiveness.

Veal said Kinder’s commitment to dust management is ingrained in its values, serving as the driving force behind their innovative solutions. 

“With a focus on safety, reliability, and performance, Kinder Australia has become a trusted partner to many of the leading players in the bulk materials handling industry,” he said.

“The industry holds immense potential for the emergence of exciting new technologies that can drive positive change in the bulk materials handling industry.”
