Wellwaij spill edges
When you want to avoid that products drop from the conveyor belt, you can fit spill edges on the top side of the belt. Wellwaij spill edges are available in various types of material, shapes, sizes, colours and hardnesses.
Spill edges can be made of PVC, PU, PE and Polyester.
The choice of the material depends on the application.
Wellwaij spill edges are available in V- and block form.
The height of the spill edges depends on the belt type, application, the diameter of the drive pulley and back flexion.
Wellwaij spill edges are available in the following colours:
- PVC: Green, white, blue, beige and black
- PU : Blue and transparent
- PE : Polyethylene transparent
- Polyester: cream white
Wellwaij spill edges can be supplied in different hardnesses ranging from 25-95° Shore A. We usually advice to choose for coated guides with a hardness of 35-50° Shore A. These guides are softer/more flexible than extruded guides end prevent the product from being damaged during transport. Other advantages: they remain more flexible in cold conditions and they can be used on a smaller pulley diameter.
The use of spill edges can affect the diameter of the drive- and tail pulley and back flexion of the belt which you want to use for your conveyor.
