The AirScrape® functional principle
AirScrape® is a side sealing system for belt conveyors patented and manufactured in Germany. The system is suspended contact-free over the belt. By means of the unique diagonal arrangement of hardened lamellae, air is led from the outside into the middle of the belt, thus creating an air suction. The material movement and the moving belt support and increase the suction effect, so that fine dust particle remain in the conveyor section. Additionally, coarse materials pushing outward are led back to the middle of the belt by the lamellae and thus decreasing spill significantly.
Hence the AirScrape® has a triple positive effect. It reduces the spill and dust formation at the transfer points and other critical sections in the conveyor chain significantly. Additionally, there is not contact with the belt, prolonging the lifecycle considerably.
Low cost- and assembly efforts with major effect and cost saving potential. Extremely durable.
