Flexco, a global manufacturer of conveyor belt solutions, has recently introduced inspection doors to its line of belt conveyor products. The inspection doors feature an adjustable latch, are rated to hold up in extreme temperatures and feature silicone seals on the door and the mounting plate.
Users can tailor the tightness of the door seal to suit their needs by simply making a few modifications to the adjustable latch mechanism. This latch can also be locked with a padlock, preventing unauthorized users from accessing the enclosure.
The inspection doors are also a valuable access point for cleaning material buildup off the belt conveyor cleaners and other equipment. For safety purposes, an optional screen is available. The screen serves as a guard to keep hands and tools from being placed in the enclosure, while still allowing visual access.
“The design is especially useful as it maintains a safe approach while still allowing access for maintenance when required,” Ryan Grevenstuk, senior product manager at Flexco, said. “The screen is hinged on one side and bolted on the other, so full removal of the screen is not necessary to access. However, a tool is required to unbolt the screen.”
Flexco inspection doors are also rated for use in the toughest environments, with a range of -70 to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.
