ASGCO’s Chute Linings and Skirtboard are designed to be an integral part of a conveyor system. Our pre-engineered chute lining protects and cushions the chute from the material being handled; Skirtboard prevents fugitive materials from escaping and damaging the conveyor loading areas. We can build, design, fabricate and install chutes, and also repair and re-align existing chutes.
A variety of conveyor chute lining materials are offered to suit your specific needs:
- Ceramic liners – delivers ultimate performance where extreme heat is a problem. Also protects against most acids, solvents, salt and alkaline solutions.
- A-R 400 steel liners – highly abrasion resistant material used for skirtboard liners in medium sized aggregate hoppers and chutes.
- P-88 – high release UMHW material, with a low friction factor to resist sticking. Primarily used in coal bunkers and hoppers.
- Rubber Chute/Tank liners – superior protection against impact, noise, and abrasive materials.
Combining the right liner with the correct chute design improves overall system efficiency and maximizes material transfer, promoting efficient flow, dust suppression and reduced buildup inside the chute.
Armorite™ Conveyor Skirt Liners, Chute, Transfer Point & Wear Liners
Armorite Skirt Liners protect your skirtboard and provide a significantly longer wear life than currently used skirt liners. Armorite Wear Plates present a very cost effective method of extending wear life in chutes, hoppers, bins, impact walls and screen plates.
Armorite™ is an extremely hard, laminated bi-metalic, wear resistant composite, which has a normal hardness of 700 BHN (63Rc) produced by combining a highly alloyed chromium-molybdenum white iron (to AS 2027 15/3 Cr/Mo) and metallurgically bonding it to a mild thick steel backing plate. The resultant bond possesses high shear strength of over 250 Mpa and will not separate. Visit our Armorite product page to learn more.
3-DEM and Flo-Control™ Conveyor Transfer Point Design, Fabrication & Installation for Improved Flo-Control
Transfer point design, fabrication and installations utilizing ASGCO’s 3-DEM chute analysis program (Discrete Element Methods) is a revolutionary way to handle granular and particulate material by streamlining the process from the point where material leaves the head pulley until it is deposited onto the receiving conveyor for a more deliberate control of the material as it flows from one conveyor to another. The performance of transfer chutes is an essential part to the productivity of the conveyor belt systems in the bulk solids industry.
These techniques are easily applied to both existing and new installations, resulting in significant cost improvements and system efficiencies. Combined with our conveyor and material handling knowledge, engineering capabilities and complete turn-key installation services, we are able to make transfer point problems a thing of the past.
