Dust protection solution thanks to innovative components

Operators of bulk material handling systems are always looking for solutions to ensure the safety of their systems and employees and to minimize the risk of explosions.
Of course, the non-contact side and rear seals from ScrapeTec only work perfectly if the distance to the conveyor belt remains constant. Other solutions ensure this: The SureSupport, for example, stabilizes the belt exactly where the bulk material hits the transfer point and deformations can occur under heavy weight loads. And the PrimeTracker, the conveyor belt tracking assistant, mounted on the lower returning belt, controls and regulates the even belt run and thus also the belt overhang to the AirScrape seal.
This described interaction of the innovative ScrapeTec products is defined by the manufacturer as a dust protection solution.”Transferpoint of conveyor systems are real ”dust emitters”, which pose a risk to employees and system safety with their enormous dust emissions,” says founder and owner Wilfried Dünnwald, who is responsible for the development of ScrapeTec products. ”My years of working underground as a mining engineer motivated me to develop solutions that avoid dust generation and spills and thereby improve working conditions.”

ATEX and FRAS requirements are also met

Of course, ScrapeTec knows that the explosion protection requirements are particularly high in mining and that the ATEX product guidelines and operating guidelines must be met for plants in Europe. For this purpose, in addition to the standard seals for AirScrape and DustScrape, special polyurethane seals are offered whose low flammability and antistatic properties have been tested by TÜV and are ATEX-compliant. As far as the DustScrape is concerned, in this case special stainless steel filters will be used that meet the requirements for explosion protection. All of the products mentioned can therefore be used in the ATEX-relevant dust zones 20, 21 and 22. In addition to mining, this also applies to conveyor systems in the food sector, where there is a high risk of explosion due to dust - sugar and flour are the most explosive examples here.
But the ScrapeTec dust protection solutions for mining and other particularly explosive conveyor systems can also be used internationally. Because they can also show that the special seals have been tested according to FRAS (Fire Retardant Anti Static), which is the global standard in mining.
With the innovative dust protection solutions from ScrapeTec, one can confidently speak of preventive measures for explosion protection - innovation versus explosion.

The ScrapeTec energy-saving formula
At many trade shows, the ScrapeTec team learns a lot about the immense energy costs associated with dust extraction on conveyor systems. These fixed costs are often cited as an argument against investing in innovations for dust protection. The ScrapeTec energy-saving formula: Energy costs for dust removal minus DustScrape The calculation is simple: By investing in a ScrapeTec dust protection solution around the DustScrape at the transfer points of a conveyor system, the entire energy costs of dust extraction can be saved - so they are reduced to zero. This is because the use of the filter module DustScrape and the innovative sealing solutions AirScrape and TailScrape allow the dust extraction to be turned off. The seals work contactlessly with special profiles and thus create the Venturi effect: the air is sucked inwards. Dust does not escape, and the bulk material also remains on the conveyor belt. The DustScrape, with its special and robust filter cloth, captures the dust that arises from the fall energy before transfer/feeding in the direction of the conveyor. The interplay of these components has now proven itself worldwide wherever dust protection solutions have been sought. The argument

PrimeTracker new technology for appropriate aligning Easy to install, reliable, controls even for reversible belts
PrimeTracker new technology for appropriate aligning
Easy to install, reliable, controls even for reversible belts New technologies developed have allowed for a much simpler example of a mass imbalance activated tracker. This design uses a flexible coupling in the centre pivot, rather than a fixed axis shaft at 45°. This allows for completely 360° free motion about the centre of the tracker, which has created an inherently reversible design. The steering of the roller is activated by additional mass and friction to one side of the roller, which drags the roller drum forward and steers the belt back to centre. Results in the field have shown there is no downside to this design compared with the fixed axis design, and it has been found that the rubber coupling is a more reliable unit, due to its simplicity and given it is not affected by contamination like a conventional greased bearing.

New Concept for Preventive Maintenance of Belt Conveyors
The company, which specialises in optimising belt conveyor systems and is known for its contactless AirScrape skirting for conveyor transfer points. i In theory, belt conveyors in the mining and quarrying industry are ideal “candidates” for implementing concepts of operating condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. The belts run continuously, the environmental conditions are unfavourable (dust, humidity, day/night temperature changes etc.). There are typical irregularities (skewing, dropping) and also characteristic damage patterns (uneven wear, belt cracks etc.). And the need for continuous condition monitoring is also given – after all, in most cases there is no alternative or redundant system that can quickly take over the task of material transport in the event of a belt stop. Desire: practical operating condition monitoring Nevertheless, the solutions for condition monitoring that have been available on the market up to now are, strictly speaking, only partial solutions. The classic is an electromechanical belt-alignment switch with a two-stage signal. If the belt runs off-centre in a defined
