Dust covers designed and built over bottling conveyors to keep the falling debris out of the bottles.
This company needed a cost-effective, yet sturdy solution to not only keep falling debris out of the bottles but also to design in a way that it was easy for the operators to clean.
Faztek played a crucial role in the design of a set of overhead dust covers spanning 4 bottling conveyors. These conveyors consisted of turns around corners as well as up to overhead sections. They also went under cat walks and modified to go around ductwork and conduit lines. Strong, but lightweight 1.5” x 1.5” T-Slotted aluminum extrusion profiles and Lexan/Polycarbonate panels accounted for the majority of the standard guarding package offered below, along with joining plates, corner brackets, & pivot hinges to hold it all together securely. Corner brackets were used to provide adjustability when bolting to the existing conveyors.
After installation, it was apparent the design of these overhead dust covers provided a perfect solution to keep the bottles free of dust during operation. These guards also offered a user-friendly method of cleaning to provide a aesthetically pleasing look. Strong, sturdy, modular and cost-effective, these units will provide years of maintenance-free performance. Best of all, Faztek’s framing system is completely modular, allowing for future modifications.
