Handbook: Wear protection solutions you can count on
Wear lining and sheeting
thanks to reduced downtime
less downtime for maintenance
What if the problem can be part of the solution? That’s precisely how Xledge liners from Metso help. Wearback chutes are engineered and designed with a series of ledges that allow the transported material to build up throughout the chute. The material buries most of the Xledge liners, building a protective layer on top of the liners, exposing only the top edge to wear. The result? A more sustainable solution where the liners last vastly longer, prolonged uptime and fewer liners are used.
The curved internal profile of the Wearback chute controls the speed and material flow from top to bottom. Material is guided through transitions to align with the outgoing conveyor and soft load the material centered onto the receiving belt.
A dramatic decrease in maintenance downtime - by up to 70%, in some cases. In addition, stockholding is easily managed, as an entire chute may use as few as only five different Xledge liner sizes.
