Kinder launches speedskirt hardskirt plates

Published by
Dry Bulk,


Kinder Australia has introduced K-Speedskirt, ceramic and composite hardskirts with differentiated wear and impact resistance on the face and edges (bevels).

Hardskirts are a critical component of high-capacity bulk transport systems. Despite the three-fold increase in conveying speeds and capacities over the past 30 years, the same materials and technologies are often used, such as Ni-Hard, chrome-white iron, rubber, rubber-ceramics).

Hardskirts wear unevenly, so they are difficult to adjust and the changeout procedures are challenging. This often leads to material getting trapped, causing accelerated belt wear. High-tech materials and assembly techniques ensure best durability, flow performance and belt safety. The edges (bevels) have a very low wear rate, so the most important part of the hard skirt is able to retain its profile longer, which in-turn yields the following benefits:

  • Up to 8 times longer hardskirt durability.
  • Dramatically reduced belt cover wear.
  • Less spillage and elimination of premature skirting wear.
