Beating corrosion problems

One of the many benefits of using high density polyethylene (HDPE) conveyor guarding instead of traditional steel is its excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. This is particularly relevant for sites in coastal and high humidity situations.

A bulk handling site in Western Australia has recently made the switch from steel to HDPE conveyor guarding for this reason. Their site is located at Kwinana, which is on the Indian Ocean coastline, south of Perth.

These locally manufactured guards have been custom designed to cope with the extremely corrosive nature of the material being carried by the conveying system.

They have unique angle bends at the top and bottom of each panel to help prevent material build up and have different size mesh in the same panel, due to the distances of the hazards behind the guard.
