Mining plants, aggregate and mineral processing plants, recycling plants and other material handling plants utilise crushing equipment to reduce the size of the raw materials. Some crushing machines have fabricated panels instead of PVC ones but our clients prefer using PVC which helps cut down the amount of dust being circulated and prevents the raw material being contaminated by other materials on-site whilst operational.
Dust containment is a major problem in and around quarries so anything that can help to control this is well received within the industry. Without using our canopy type covers on conveyors dust has the freedom to escape. Our canopy covers can be made to any size or shape to help stop the dust from escaping. Controlling the amount of dust that escapes cuts down any expensive dust suppression equipment needed on site such as water misting machines.
One of the major advantages of using PVC covers is that they minimise the overall weight of the machine compared to using fabricated panels. This proves beneficial when transporting your machine across the globe. Whilst using PVC covers; it does not compromise the integrity of machinery, in fact customers report back the extreme durability of our crushing equipment covers.
Cunningham also manufactures a PVC control house cover as seen in our picture gallery above. This is bespoke manufactured to house control equipment and keep operators dry and free from contaminants during operation. The PVC control houses can be made completely closed or they can have vision panels inserted along with zipped doors for easy access. Our in-house brand department can then apply graphics which will be more fitting to your brand; resulting in the PVC house becoming part of the complete unit.
Our design team are in regular communication with crushing and screening equipment companies utilising our offerings and adapting them for different purposes as truth be told we offer lots more than conveyor covers for these types of companies. Safety being paramount we are constantly thinking of new ways to keep your clients safe. Our covers are regularly used around equipment to stop people entry to dangerous areas of the equipment.
These types of covers are not just used for crushing and screening equipment; food processing plants use them too. During food transfer such as grain, our covers protect from any outside contaminants such as birds etc.
If you are developing a specification for a conveyor or building a machine, consider integrating our conveyor covers into the design. Talk to our team today to discuss any future developments within your organisation.
