Objective: To reduce airborne dust and to eliminate spillage at the conveyor load zone.

Challenge: The maintenance personnel at the plant complained that the existing wide open loading chute was causing spillage of product, tremendous airborne dust and belt mis-tracking due to off center loading.  These issues were creating downtime due to clean up issues and hazardous working conditions caused by the airborne dust.


Recommendations: After a complete survey of the conveyor systems, the recommendation was made to install an ASGCO® Dual

and Slide-N-Roll Beds were also recommended to help seal the skirting. The Conveyor Hoods and Dust Curtains™ were needed
to control the large amounts of dust being dispersed from the open chute application.

Results: After the installation of the ASGCO® products, the Maintenance personnel claim that there is reduced maintenance downtime
