Kinder & Co explains why converting to a high quality, low friction engineered polyurethane skirting is a wise investment to improve the lifespan of conveyor belts.
A low friction lining is more energy efficient because it reduces the drag on the conveyor belt, reducing the power required to run the conveyor.
High quality polyurethane has superior durability when compared to rubber (PU is scientifically tested to outlast rubber by as much as 8 to 10 times).
The engineered properties of high quality polyurethane create a surface that will not collect fines or other materials, which could damage the conveyor belt.
The K-Snap-Loc dust seal system, part of Kinder & Co’s skirting and sealing conveyor supplies product range, improves the performance of the conveyor by reducing spillage, controlling dust and preventing belt damage.
