Kinder launches Airscrape skirting system

Kinder Australia has released a specialised contact-free conveyor skirting and sealing system, which acts as a side seal, suspended over the conveyor belt.

Kinder Australia has released a specialised contact-free conveyor skirting and sealing system, which acts as a side seal, suspended over the conveyor belt.

AirScrape uses a diagonal arrangement of hardened lamellae, meaning air is led from the outside into the middle of the belt, creating powerful air suction.

The material movement together with the moving belt support increases the suction effect enabling fine dust particles to remain in the conveyor section. It works with both large and fine particles.

Additionally, coarse materials pushing outward are led back to the middle of the belt by the lamellae which can significantly minimise spillage.

Due to the skirting and sealing system’s ability to hover freely above the conveyor belt, skirt friction and belt damage can be eliminated. The hardened steel blades reduce skirt wear. The service life of other conveyor components may be extended, as well as a significant reduction of maintenance and replacement costs.

Simple to install by utilising existing clamping system – AirScrape is installed using spacers, floating the blades zero to one millimetres freely above the belt and is attached to the outside of the chute by lifting tensioners via a simple screw system. It is longitudinally and laterally adjustable to follow the contours of conveyor belt rollers and the belt trough angle.

AirScrape is developed and patented to the quality, safety and environmental standards. It can reduce the spill and dust formation at transfer points and other critical sections in the conveyor chain.
