In today’s bulk handling industry, dust and material containment is critical to the performance of an optimised conveyor system. Traditional skirting can be an effective solution, but some hard rock materials pose the risk of damaging soft rubber skirting systems, rendering the system compromised.
ASGCO’s Dura-Tuff™ urethane skirting system was designed specifically for the demands of such operations. Manufactured from extremely tough 62 durometer polyurethane, Dura-Tuff delivers sealing that lasts 3 – 5 times longer than traditional rubber skirting systems.
Dura-Tuff is available in 50 ft. rolls with bevelled edges to match the troughing angle of the conveyor system, eliminating the break-in period required to achieve maximum seal. In environments with highly-abrasive materials, Dura-Tuff has been proven to endure the demands of hard rock like granite, trap rock, iron, copper and gold ore, as well as highly abrasive oil sands. It is also proven an effective seal on high-speed and reversing belts.
