Escape of materials from conveyors is an everyday occurrence. It occurs in the forms of spillage and leakage from transfer points of carry back that adheres to the belt past the discharge point and drops off along the conveyor return.
It also occurs in the form of airborne dust that is carried off and settles on structures, equipment and the ground.
Carry back falls under the conveyor, spillage falls to the sides and dust falls on everything, including systems and structures above the conveyor.
If left unchecked, fugitive materials represent an ever-increasing drain on a conveyor’s efficiency, productivity and profitability.
