Dust-, spillage- and maintenance-free Skirtings supplied for Conveying in the Mining and Processing Industries

Companies whose daily operations include extraction, processing, crushing and screening of materials are familiar with the problems at the transfer points in conveying systems, such as nuisance dust generation, disruptive material spillage, costly belt wear, maintenance work that impedes operation and constant cleaning required. Even conventional chute skirtings or conveyor belt skirtings do not help to overcome these problems. For more than 8 years already, ScrapeTec from Kamp-Lintfort, Germany with its specific products has been providing effective solutions to all these problems. ScrapeTec products as e.g. AirScrape, DustScrape and TailScrape are applied individually or in combination and serve as side skirtings or belt skirtings, for example. They are used by large and small companies – in many countries around the world. Also in Chile and Peru.
