Fitting & Usage

STEP 1.

The first step is an extensive measurement survey of the entire conveyor system. We draw, measure and map every corner, straight run, and vertical switch. All motor boxes, cleaning brushes, electrical conduits, brackets, and hangers are measured to ensure accurate fabrication and installation. Our catch-cloths are designed to be easy to remove, clean and re-install.

NOTE: Depending on the type of travel involved and the number of man-hours required to survey your plant,

there may be a fee for this service. The fee will be deducted in whole or in part from your catch-cloth order.

STEP 2.

Catch-cloths are custom fabricated using heavy duty vinyl coated nylon cloth and brass grommets.

Choose from multiple colors of vinyl to complement your plant environment.

Each vinyl panel has an easy to read label indicating the conveyor section it fits so there is no confusion when the panels are removed and re-hung. Siftex utilizes a crew of trained installers to complete the job within the available conveyor down-time.

Catch-cloths are hung using “J” hooks and “S” hooks. “J” hooks are screwed into the sides of the conveyor. “S” hooks are crimped to the grommets along the sides of the vinyl panels. The “S” hooks are attached to the “J” hooks providing an easier way to remove and re-attach the panels.

Our installation team comes equipped with all the tools and safety gear required and is fully insured. They will remove the old tarps, if needed. Throughout the installation, our team cleans up all work areas to maintain safety and sanitation.

The bakery will need to provide the scissor-lifts and ladders used to access the conveyors. The conveyors being worked on must be switched off and remain so until our crew is finished.

STEP 3.

The final step is to supply the bakery with a binder containing the maps, drawings, panel numbers and locations for all the vinyl cloths.
