Dust free and contact free


Conveyor belt skirting

TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

The AirScrape conveyor belt skirting system hovers close to contact free on the left and
right site of the conveyor belt using the running belt with the conveyed material flow
generating airflow.

Due to the diagonal array of the AirScrape lamellas which creates an airflow towards
the center of the conveyor belt to avoid dust extraction at transfer points or other critical
areas of the conveyor belt.

AirScrape – Conveyor belt skirting

• Made from nonflammable and antistatic material (polyurethane)


• Lamellas made from Hardox/Stainless Steel
• Suitable for both applications the left and the right site
• available in Small, Medium and Large version
• mounted on the lower outside of the chute
• maintenance free, based on provision that application is used in accordance with
the guidelines
• provides belt protection and close to no belt contact
• can be used for any belt speed
• in FDA approved material available

REQUIREMENT FOR THE USE OF AIRSCRAPE

The prerequisite for this is a transfer situation that corresponds to the state of technology.
The conveyor belt has to run in the middle and should not sag in the loading area. This
can be achieved by using suitable belt guides, more rollers or a transfer table. A partial
straightening of the outer belt area by special measures (e. g. replacement of the rollers
by sliding bar construction) is also conceivable.

NOTE
AirScrape is not suitable for:
1. reversing belts
2. for conveyor belt inclines > 15°, for inclines higher than 15 depress please
contact us for technical advice
3. in transfer situations where the main volumetric flow rate meets the side
seal directly (special measures necessary)
4. Materials in the hardening/reaction process (e. g. pozzolanic materials
and simultaneous addition of water to combat dust)

ATTENTION
The belt overlay must be permanent.
Belt overhang fluctuations must be taken into account.

Ideal Sealing
additional wear plate with
(example: straight design) welded-on round wear-resistant
Pre-sealing and AirScrape material (Hardox or similar)

This construction is mounted (starting


with reference to direction of flow) with
a 5mm gap to the belt.
In the conveying direction, this gap
dimension increases by 5 mm/metre.
Length approx. 1.5x belt width. transport space transport space
for fine material for fine material

Off-center loading of conveyor


belts is responsible for many
consequential damages and
problems
Material feed off-center:
• belt runs in the transfer area and side
sealings lose their function,
• the belt misalignment is the result,
because the material weight forces
the belt into the lowest point of the
conveyor belt trough,
• unloading onto the lower belt or belt
edge damage can result,
• side sealings wear out quickly with
the consequences of spillage and
dust leakage,
• …

This construction starts (in terms of the


conveying direction) wider and gets
smaller in the conveying direction.
Length approx. 1.5 x belt width.
Installation width „B“ as a function of B

INSTRUCTIONS TO USE EXISTING MOUNTING SYSTEMS
For the installation and use of existing mounting systems notice the following:
The fastening bold (1) or any other attachments / clamping systems needs a distance >
140 mm for AirScrape Large (> 130 mm for AirScrape Medium and > 120 mm for AirScrape
Small) towards the belt surface (2).

IMPORTANT
The position of the clamp angle (3) needs a minimum of 50 mm distance
towards the belt surface (4) and needs to be above the bending angle of
the AirScrape.

- Medium
- Large

- Small
> 140 mm

> 130 mm

> 120 mm
> 50 mm

AirScrape Standard 50 mm
Distance between tensioning bold (1) and belt surface (2) > 140 mm
AirScrape Medium
Distance between tensioning bold (1) and belt surface (2) > 130 mm
AirScrape Small
Distance between tensioning bold (1) and belt surface (2) > 120 mm

ADAPTER SHEETS
example:
For some applications, special adapter plates / sheets
chute wall • existing bold-on
are necessary:
• if chute wall ist too short,
use Adapter plate
For example Wear Liner
• without bold-on situation
Adapter plate needs to
• With a distance from the bottom of the chute wall be weld on to the chute
and the belt surface of:
> 80 - 110 mm for AirScrape Large weld-on bold M12

> 60 - 100 mm for AirScrape Medium adapter sheet

> 50 - 80 mm for AirScrape Small


• If possible to use an existing chute wall to bold-on the
AirScrape with the adapter platezt werden soll/kann.
