Weba Chute Systems should not be compared with conventional chute systems as these locally- manufactured systems adopt a completely different approach to the control and handling of bulk materials.
Mark Baller, managing director of Weba Chute Systems, says these transfer points are an improved alternative to traditional chute systems.
The Weba Chute System is based on the lined ‘super tube’ or cascade system, whereby much of the material runs on material at all times. The bottom layer of particles in the product stream moves in a tumbling motion and subsequently does not slide down the chute. This not only reduces the wear significantly, but in many cases the lip remains completely covered by material and never needs replacement.
Weba Chute Systems takes this means of controlling material movement a step further by designing the internal angle of the transfer chute to match the product discharge velocity with the belt speed, which eliminates or greatly reduces spillage.
Extensive experience and technical expertise, coupled with applications knowledge, has positioned Weba Chute Systems as the leader in its field, Mark notes.
Each system is custom designed for a specific application, considering factors such as belt width, belt speed, material size and shape, as well as throughput. When applied to a Greenfield project, this locally designed transfer system achieves the optimum design configuration for a specific application.
