Finding the right lining media

Poor chute design and varying moisture content can cause blockages and flow problems. A chute’s lining can help to alleviate this, but not all are made the same.

Each lining application must be evaluated properly, taking into consideration all aspects of the material being handled.

These factors determine the grade, material and style of the lining media used.

Some factors to consider:

  • Material/particle size and concentration
  • Material moisture content & environmental conditions
  • Impact strength
  • Abrasion
  • Chute shape and head room restriction

Kinder Australia an offer lining media to suit a wide range of applications, to stop common issues such as bridging/arching, caking, ratholing and wear.

It’s K-Slip low friction liner is extra slippery with very low co-efficient of friction. It is thin and flexible for complicated shape applications and uses a synthetic rubber backing.

For situations where a low co-efficient of friction and basic wear protection is required, Kinder Australia offers the K-Slide liner. It features abrasion and corrosion resistance in a wide range of thicknesses and sheet sizes.

K-Superline provides a low co-efficient of friction and high wear protection, while weighing 85 per cent less than steel and generating 80 per cent less noise.

The company also offers the K-Floshield, which provides extreme wear protection, for impact applications and “violent” materials. It uses a polished chromium carbide top layer and is five to six times more resistant than steel.
