TITLE
Linatex chute pulley
ARTICLE
Aylesford Quarry in Kent produces 150,000 tonnes of fine sand per annum. The sand is discharged from a 15 metre high Linatex tower, which necessitates changing the discharge chute on daily basis.

To reduce the risks of operatives working at height, the company decided to develop a method of changing the discharge from ground level using a pulley system and a cleat for securing the chute in place.
