Nesting Chutes

Nesting Chutes

No more dust control problems.

A simple system for controlling the dust that results from flowable materials.

As the mound rises the nesting chute can be retracted with winches.

 

Information

How Will a Nesting Chute Help?

Nesting chutes are commonly placed beneath conveyor heads to control airborne dust.

Rigging is used to raise and lower the chute according to the pile height.

The images below show the dust dispersion levels on a conveyor, with and without a nesting chute.

Nesting Chutes not used

Before: Widespread dust dispersion

Nesting Chutes used

After: The nesting chute controls the dust

Superchute® can provide free and helpful sketches within 24 hours.

A Site Sketch:

  • Shows a clear image of the Nesting Chute
  • Shows the precise quantity of chute sections needed for the job
  • Recommends the appropriate support frame
  • Contact us for your custom site sketch

The following information is stamped front and back with 11″ x 5″ die onto every chute section:

  • Company name and coordinates
  • Chute description
  • Month & year of manufacture
  • Plastic thickness
  • Chute diameter
  • Chute weight
  • Detailed instructions & fire warning
  • Excellent advertising tool & great anti-theft measure
  • We keep your plate in our library for future orders

There is a small charge for making the die. Please allow 24 hours for preparation.

Materials
  • Most Superchute® sections are made of YELLOW High Molecular Weight Polyethylene
  • HMWPE is resistant to abrasion, chemicals & cold weather
  • Clients in Alaska & other cold climates appreciate its low temperature impact resistance of -100 ºC (-156 ºF)
  • In hot weather the plastic will become a little softer
  • Bright yellow plastic (safety-minded color) shows off your company name plate
  • Many thicknesses available
  • UV treated
  • We build custom Superchute® sections using BLUE Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene if a high volume of abrasive material will be passed through the chute
  • UHMWPE is five times more abrasion resistant than the yellow plastic
  • Low temperature impact resistance: -70 ºC (-94 ºF)
  • Melting temperature: 137 ºC (280 ºF)
  • Max recommended working temperature: 80°C (180°F)
  • Many thicknesses available
  • UV treated
  • We build custom Superchute® sections using GREY Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene where extremely hot material will be passed through the chute
  • UHMWPE is five times more abrasion resistant than the yellow plastic
  • Low temperature impact resistance: -70 ºC (-94 ºF)
  • Melting temperature: 150 ºC (300 ºF)
  • Max recommended working temperature: 135°C (275°F)
  • Primarily designed for carrying hot asphalt in truck beds
  • Many thicknesses available
  • UV treated

Optional Parts

Superchute® Canvas Shrouds

 

A canvas shroud provides a sealed dust envelope.

It is used in cases where complete dust control is required.

All canvas shrouds are custom built to suit the application.

Superchute® Stainless Steel Linking System

Used in situations where highly corrosive materials are present. They are good in salt water applications.

 

Superchute® Nylon Rope Linking System

A strong nylon rope linking system is used where highly corrosive materials are present.

 

Superchute® Lifting Collars

We manufacture a variety of Lifting Collars to facilitate retraction of a Superchute® Nesting Chute.  All collars are custom-built to suit the application.

Superchute® Stainless Steel Stoppers

For heavy duty applications a stainless steel stopper is used to prevent the sections from nesting too far.

 

Superchute® Automated Retraction System:

  • Detects the pile height automatically by means of an ultrasonic sensor, and adjusts the chute retraction to match.
  • Ideal for sites where conveyors are continuously running without constant supervision
  • The Power Panel has a selector switch with both automatic and manual modes to allow for manual control of the chute

 

3 major parts:

  • Ultrasonic Sensor with Cable Reel
  • Drum Winch
  • Power Panel with optional Operator Panel

Parts can be customized to meet your job’s specifications.
