MARTIN BOCO self-adjusting skirting

Staff Reporter

The MARTIN BOCO self-adjusting skirting has been made available in a low profile version, making it easier to install in tight clearances.

While the entire skirting assembly is only 6in tall, the rubber sealing-strip still provides a 2in wear life.

The BOCO skirting floats on the belt, self-adjusting to maintain an effective material seal without maintenance. Supported on pressure arms between steel plates, the system’s rubber sealing-strip rises and falls with fluctuations in belt travel, automatically maintaining an effective seal as it wears.

The company claims its self-adjusting skirting has the lowest belt edge requirement of any engineered sealing system, and provides an effective material seal on conveyors with as little as 1.25in of belt outside the chute wall on each side.

MARTIN BOCO rubber sealing-strip is available in lengths up to 300ft for installation as a single continuous strip along each side of the load zone, eliminating the possibility for material leakage through a joint between two rubber sealing-strips. Clamp assemblies are supplied in 48in lengths, making them easy to manoeuvre and install in tight spaces.

Martin Engineering has made bulk material handling products since 1944.
