A New Solution to Decrease Load Zone Dust & Spillage
Benetech understands the difficulties of fugitive dust and spillage from poorly designed transfer points and load zones. The underlying issue is often a misaligned transfer point chute creating a flawed transition of material onto the receiving belt.
Improper or off-center loading can lead to several problems. When material is loaded to either side of the belt, it creates excessive spillage and dust and threatens to fully mistrack the belt. Mistracking can then damage the conveyor; cause quicker, uneven wear; make the motor work harder; and even create safety issues. These potential downsides frequently result in costly maintenance, housekeeping and material loss.
Although these problems should be addressed, time and budget constraints do not always allow for engineered load zone chute replacement, which is the best option to solve most conveyor material-flow issues. To overcome this, Benetech has developed a new low-cost solution to combat off-center conveyor loading without costly chute redesign: the MaxZone® Plus system.
This economical solution acts as a modified load zone chute with an additional way to reduce your dust and spillage problems at the load zone. Together, the adjustable side kicker plates and deflector center-load the material and provide a smoother transition onto the belt. The MaxZone® Plus can be added easily to existing Benetech XN Liner Systems and also be retrofitted to other containment systems.
