A conveyor lifter bar, also known as a skirt lifter or belt lifter, is a specialized component used in conveyor systems to assist in maintaining proper material flow and prevent spillage along the conveyor belt's sides. These bars are designed to lift the edges of the conveyor belt slightly, creating a seal to contain material and minimize dust emissions at transfer points.
They help improve material containment, reduce spillage, and enhance the overall efficiency and cleanliness of the conveyor system.
In conveyor systems, especially in bulk material handling applications like mining, aggregate processing, and cement plants, the proper containment of material and prevention of spillage are essential. Conveyor lifter bars play a critical role in achieving these objectives by lifting the edges of the conveyor belt, providing a controlled flow path for the material.
