Dust control features for material handling systems has been developed by Danieli Procome as a matter of concern on Health & Safety factors within the Meltshop.
This equipment can be implemented in new projects, as well as in existing facilities, after a dedicated study of the raw material handling system. The system can be adapted to different types of belt conveyors. It has been specially designed for loading areas and discharge points. There are some optional packages for an extra dust control.
- DISCHARGE POINT
- CHARGING AREA
- HORIZONTAL BELT CONVEYOR
- SHUTTLE BELT CONVEYOR
- ELEVATING BELT CONVEYOR
- This type of equipment allows a high-level dust control in raw material transport.
- There is a significant reduction of dust emissions to the environment.
- It extends the service life of the devices involved in material handling.
- It results in low cleaning expenses with a very interesting payback on the investment.
ADJUSTABLE MATERIAL DEFLECTORAn adjustable deflector is placed at the head of the belt to guide the material flow to the correct discharge point.
DUST CHAIN RECLAIMER (OPTIONAL PACKAGE)It collects the detached material and conveys it back to the material flow.
HIGH-EFFICIENCY BELT SCRAPERIt is made of several segments with an independent spring system allowing a high efficiency. The regulation is done by an accessible screw system (it is not necessary to remove any part to access).
CLEANING ROLLS (OPTIONAL PACKAGE)Helical cleaning rolls are located on top of a dust recovery hopper to detach the dust from the returning belt.
DOUBLE LIP SKIRT (OPTIONAL PACKAGE)
This second lip can be used as an option to the standard one. It is placed along the charging area to avoid dust exit from the loading point.
LOADING CHANNELIt centers the material flow along the belt’s center line avoiding spillage, belt misalignment strong>and backward movements. The rubber avoids dust exit.
IMPACT AREALateral rolls are substituted by low-friction nylon flat plates to ensure a perfect sealing.
SPECIAL RETURN ROLLS (OPTIONAL PACKAGE)All return idler rolls are disc-type to avoid as much as possible the contact with the belt.
BRUSH TYPE SEALINGThe gap between shuttle conveyor and conveyor cover is closed by a brush type sealing.
PNEUMATIC SEALING DEVICEA pneumatic sealing device is installed to close the gap between the discharge point and the silo material entry.
SHAKING DRUMThe shaking drum hits the belt to clean it.
DUST RECOVERY HOPPERThis hopper collects the dust from the shaking drum and conveys it to the loading area.
BELT SCRAPERA “V” type belt scraper is placed on the internal face of the belt to detach any embedded particle of material which may damage the belt.
DUST CHAIN RECLAIMER (OPTIONAL PACKAGE)It collects the spillage material and conveys it back to the material flow. The aim of this equipment is to recirculate the dust.
