An effective skirt system comprises of a steel skirt plate, wear liner and a dust sealing mechanism. The steel skirt plate is designed to mount the wear liner and sealing mechanism. The wear liner is designed to control and direct active product through transition until it settles in the trough of the outgoing conveyor belt. The sealing mechanisms only function is to retain dust within the transfer point.

In addition to supplying the skirt system ANCO Industries can provide 30 metre rolls of either skirt rubber or polyurethane in various widths and thicknesses to suit your requirements.
Our range of traditional rubber skirt is available in various widths and thicknesses to meet all requirements. It is supplied in 30m (33yd) rolls to minimise waste and ensure that it can be safely handled. Rubber skirt is a low cost option, available in either Natural or FRAS grades and provides an effective sealing solution for your conveyor.
Our range of 65 shore A durometer polyurethane skirt is available in various widths and thicknesses to suit most applications. Polyurethane skirt is cut into standard roll lengths of 30m (33yd) to ensure that it can be safely handled. Investing in high quality Polyurethane skirt delivers superior performance in wear and longevity, reducing maintenance cost over time. DUAL SEAL
This skirt offers a dual sealing solution for your conveyor. The main body of the skirt is manufactured from rubber, which offers the primary sealing surface. The rubber body is adjusted against the belt as with traditional rubber skirt. A flexible rubber strip with a polyurethane wear rail at its end, is moulded to the side of the main body and contacts the belt. This is the secondary sealing surface. By utilising the low cost rubber in the body and high performance polyurethane in the second sealing surface only, cost is minimised and performance is maximised.

Products

Rigid Polyurethane skirting is manufactured and supplied in 1340mm (53”) lengths that can be retro fitted directly to existing or as part of a new steel skirt plate. The body of the skirt system is manufactured from 85 shore A durometer polyurethane, ensuring excellent wear performance. The system is mounted to the chute via three small stand off brackets. These brackets are used for finite adjustment of the Rigid poly skirt material to ensure performance is optimised.
TuffClamp skirting is manufactured and supplied in 1m (40”) lengths that can be retro fitted directly to existing or as part of a new steel skirt plate. The design of this system ensures flexibility when installing. The position of the mounting brackets are able to be adjusted to accommodate any obstructions. The acme thread on the mounting assembly ensures simple access for the adjustment or replacement of the rubber or polyurethane skirt. The clamp bar within our system is positively retained eliminating any risk of the clamp bar coming into contact with the belt. The system is able to accommodate skirt material from 10mm (3 /8”) through to 19mm (3 /4”) thick and is available in both standard and low profile design
TuffLock skirting is manufactured and supplied in 1.2m (48”) lengths that can be retro fitted directly to existing or as part of a new steel skirt plate. The mounting plate is retained by a toggle, ensuring nothing more than a hammer is required to adjust or replace rubber or polyurethane skirt. The system is able to retain skirt material from 12mm (1 /2”) through to 19mm (3 /4”) and is available in both high and low profile design.


Conveyor Belt Skirting

Conveyor belt skirting is used to reduce dust emissions and wastage. However, there is a range of other key benefits associated with conveyer belt skirting, including:

A reduction in material loss

With the addition of conveyor belt skirting, the risk of spillage and airborne material wastage is significantly reduced. Due to many factors such as speed, angles, the environment and even material consistency, material loss is inevitable. However, taking measures to reduce the amount of material loss can be beneficial to your system’s overall efficiency, and therefore, conveyor belt skirting is an impressive solution.

Dust containment

Containing dust is the most common reasons for installing conveyor belt skirting. The spread of dust can lead to significant health issues such as respiratory diseases or even damage to other parts of the body. Where dust is not contained properly, more hazards may arise. Therefore, it’s important to put a dust containment plan in place, and utilising conveyor belt skirting can be an impressive preventative measure to make this happen.

Less chance of belt damage

As a conveyor belt is routinely used, the material can become lodged underneath the belt, resulting in further damage. Any material caught between the rollers will cause the belt to move off-centre and harm the overall operation. Hence, conveyor belt skirting will prevent material development and reduce the risk of belt damage.

Lower cleaning costs

Dust build-up and material spillage will result in the need for more cleaning and maintenance services. This can be incredibly expensive. Instead, lower your cleaning costs and any potential system shutdowns by installing conveyor belt skirting.

Enhanced productivity

Avoid unnecessary health and safety issues and material loss by installing high-quality conveyor belt skirting. When less time is spent on repairs, the overall efficiency and productivity of your operation is boosted. Stop wasting time and increase your yield with conveyor belt skirting.
