Problem Solved: Coal-Fired Power Plant
PROVEN EFFECTIVE, DRAMATICALLY REDUCING DUST, SPILLAGE AND CARRYBACK AT A COAL-FIRED POWER PLANT.
A coal-fired power plant had serious dust, spillage and carryback issues on one of its conveyors, which handles 3,811 tons per hour of bulk material. (belt width:2000mm[78”], belt speed:210m/min.)
Cleanup spillage required every 1 to 2 days, which created another potential risk. Management wanted to reduce the cleanup time by minimizing material loss from the load.
The solution has proven effective, dramatically reducing dust, spillage and carryback. The skirtboard sealing system is effectively preventing dust pollution without belt damage. In addition, belt cleaning system is significantly keeping the belt clean that reduced maintenance time for cleanup.

Dust leakage (Before) ---> Installing skirtboard sealing system (After)
Cleanup spillage required every 1 to 2 days (Before) ---> Effectively reducing spillage and carryback (After)
The Jimway team visited the site and inspected of the conveyor. After a detailed survey and discussion with facility managers, we focused on providing the right transfer point solution that can prevent wasted labor and material loss. The technicians suggested installing as followed:
