No more dust control problems.
A simple modular system for conducting, depositing, or stockpiling flowable materials.
As the mound rises the nesting chute can be retracted with winches.
Superchute Loading Spouts are used around the world at mines, seaports, railyards, and all types of industrial plants.
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.
Superchute® Nesting Chutes are ideal for:
The following information is stamped front and back with 11″ x 5″ die onto every chute section:
There is a small charge for making the die. Please allow 24 hours for preparation.
Wraparound® Black Fire Retardant UHMWPE Plastic Sections
Galvanized steel and hard aluminum metal chute sections are also available. Please visit our Fire Rated Chutes page for more details.
higher number = longer life
* The Conveyor Feed rate and the materials being passed through the Nesting Chute will determine the necessary thickness and type of plastic to be used.
Superchute® Cable Assemblies
Note: A cable assembly pair supports the weight of the chute sections beneath (cable assemblies higher up support more weight than lower ones)
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® Stainless Steel Stoppers
For heavy duty applications a stainless steel stopper is used to prevent the sections from nesting too far.
