Controlling fugitive material at your belt conveyor's loading zone

There are two transfer points on a continuous belt conveyor where the release of fugitive material is common: the head pulley, where carryback occurs, and the loading zone, where spillage occurs.

Consequently, this article addresses controlling spillage in the loading zone and discusses methods for relieving and correcting spillage problems.
