Belt cleaners are an integral part of your belt conveyor system because of their ability to remove carryback from your belt. Carryback is a leading issue on many conveyors, requiring frequent clean-up while wearing our conveyor components prematurely and causing other conveying problems like belt mistracking. Reducing carryback can improve worker safety, increase operating efficiency, and enhance productivity.
- Precleaners are belt cleaners that are designed to scrape material off the conveyor belt.They are ideal for removing large pieces of material – typically about 60-70 percent of initial carryback.
- Secondary cleaners are belt cleaners that are built to scrape materials left on the belt beyond the head pulley.It increases cleaning efficiency to more than 90 percent.
