Continental Conveyor knows that the material its customers transport is valuable — and so is their equipment. That’s why the leading manufacturer counts conveyor covers among the high-quality bulk materials handling equipment it offers. These covers are used to protect transported material and conveyor belting, idlers and structure, as well as personnel. They are also an effective way to reduce loss of material to wind, and stop grime and rain from damaging the idlers and belt.
A complete solution
Continental Conveyor provides the entire conveyor cover solution. This includes specialized mounting brackets for special types of conveyor structures, extended sides to enclose the return belt run, and non-standard support band centres and hood profiles to accommodate horizontal and vertical curves.
Each piece is designed to offer maximum reliability. Support bands and hoods, for example, are made of G90 galvanized material for durability. They are also available in aluminum and stainless steel construction. Support bands have correctly positioned holes for mounting of eye bolts for safety pull-cords, while three-quarter hoods allow quick viewing of the belt from one side. A tight fit between the bottom edge of the hood and support band help to ensure protection. Wide support bands prevent gaps and improve weather seal, and open position brackets hold the hoods in place while accessing the conveyor.
The company’s unique cover design prevents ingress of water into the reinforced edge, which reduces the chance of corrosion. In addition, the symmetrical design of the covers enables easy placement on structure, quick installation and safe access to both sides of the belt.
