Working and performing maintenance work in potentially unsafe environments, such as inside chutes and hoppers, may require permits before entering these ‘confined areas’.
Kinder’s innovation in skirting maintenance, the K-Conlock® Clamp System, removes the maintenance issues and OHS risks associated with working in confined spaces. The advantages of flexibility in changing out skirting from the outside in a matter of minutes reduces production down time and promotes continuous productivity.
K-Conlock Clamp System is installed and accessed from outside the transfer point, eliminates OHS issues and the need for anyone to put their hands in often hard to reach, confined areas.
Skirting seals such as K-Containment Seal can easily be clamped between the chute wall and K-Conlock Clamp System locking plate – adjustments to the assembly can be made from the outside, without being completed disassembled, saving maintenance time and resources.
