If a conveyor is not properly supported, the forces of loading will create spillage at the transfer point. Gaps between the belt and skirting system will develop and let fines and dust to escape.
This fugitive material is very expensive to clean. In addition, it can build up on conveyor components where it can wear idlers. There is also the possibility that it may seize bearings and become entrapped in pinch points and gouge the belt.
GuardaSeal Sealing Support Systems hold the conveyor belts in a position to allow effective sealing. By minimising belt vibration and sag, the GuardaSeal System reduces the potential of material escape.
