Continental Conveyor has been a top provider of material-handling solutions since 1963 – making not just conveyors, but also components. The company knows that its customers transport valuable materials with expensive equipment. That is why Continental offers conveyor covers for users to protected transported material and conveyor belts, idlers, and structures, as well as employees. They are also extremely useful for minimizing material loss from wind and for stopping grime and rain from damaging idlers and belts.
Designed to offer maximum reliability
An entire conveyor-cover solution is available from Continental – including 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 of these pieces has been designed to offer maximum reliability. For example, Continental’s support bands and hoods are constructed out of G90 galvanized material for durability. These are also available in aluminum and stainless steel constructions. The support bands have correctly positioned holes for the mounting of eyebolts for safety pull cords, and three-quarter hoods enable fast viewing of the belt from one side. To help ensure protection, there is a tight fit between the bottom edge of the hood and the support band. The wide support bands stop gaps and improve the weather seal, while the open position brackets hold the hoods in place while accessing the conveyor.
The Continental team’s unique design for conveyor covers prevents all water ingress into the reinforced edge, which lowers the risk of corrosion. These covers also have a symmetrical design that allows simple placement on structure, fast installation, and safe access to both sides of the belt.
In addition to conveyor covers, Continental Conveyor offers belt-conveyor idlers and pulleys – components and accessories that help material-handling systems operate at their peak.
