On the back of many years of experience in the engineering of belt conveyors and in response to rising requirements in this segment, Kühne developed its patented belt conveyor cover system.
The system was designed to meet needs for quick assembly, easy access to the conveyor components such as idlers and belt monitoring system. Other development goals were easy retrofitting of the hood to existing belt frames and, in the case of new conveyors, attachment of the hood prior to commissioning of the belt. With this solution any necessary adjustments can be made even after fitting of the hood.
Savings for the plant engineer and operator were key aims in the development of these hood covers. A product was successfully developed that can be easily retrofitted to existing conveyors and does not incur any additional material costs apart from those directly associated with actual installation. On customer request, we can design and manufacture a hood specifically to fit the frame of the conveyor the customer wants covered, provided we are supplied with a binding drawing of the installation. Key advantages are the secure fixing of the open self-supporting hoods and the opening and closing of the hoods without the need for any tools. The hoods are attached by clamping to the frame, with no need for drilling or for support rails or fastener straps!
The flexibility of the system makes it able to negotiate curves as well as concave and convex belt tracks. Hoods in sendzimir galvanized sheet steel, stainless steel, aluminium (also sea-water resistant) and galvanized steel with paint coating are available as standard solutions. The Kühne hood system is supplied for a belt width from 500 mm to 1400 mm. Customized solutions are available on request. In the same system, covers for the sides of the belt frame are also available (especially for belt frames with customized design).
