Kinder & Co installed a K-Sure belt support system to help minimise spillage at Sibelco’s limestone processing plant in Buchan, in East Gippsland Victoria.
A Kinder & Co customer, Sibelco has been operating continuously for over 130 years, with a network of over 30 mines, plants, sales offices and distribution warehouses throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Facing a spillage problem at their limestone processing plant, Sibelco sought a smarter solution for dealing with materials spillage around their transfer points. When contacted by Sibelco, Kinder & Co Operations Manager, Charles Pratt decided to conduct a site inspection.
Following the inspection, Charles recommended the installation of a K-Sure belt support system for minimising the spillage. The K-Sure belt support system is designed to provide support for the belt trough; by eliminating any belt edge sag in this area, the level of spillage is effectively reduced.
