Many solutions have already been developed to prevent dust emissions at special sections of conveyor belt systems and at transfer points. All measures taken for this purpose serve to protect the people working in the surrounding area, keep the production environment clean and often provide explosion protection. However, most of the classic dust prevention methods also involve risks and side effects such as increased wear and tear, causing plant operators to face different problems. Against a background of many years of experience, the founder of the ScrapeTec Trading GmbH, a former miner and graduate engineer, developed AirScrape, a contact-free system designed to prevent wear and tear. The new system also keeps fine dust particles in the conveying area, eliably preventing spillage and – since it works without belt contact – significantly reduces the need for maintenance work.
