In harsh mining conditions, a heavy duty belt cleaning system is an essential piece of a conveyor. It is used to clean bulk material from conveyor belts and is also referred to as a belt scraper. They come in a variety of belt sizes and speeds, regardless of industry or type of material. The belt scraper design comes in two forms – primary and secondary.
Primary Conveyor Belt Cleaners — Clean the Conveyor belts at the head pulley eliminating problems with carryback spillage.
Secondary Conveyor Belt Cleaners — Installed where the belt leaves the discharge pulley on the return side. They remove any residue left by the primary cleaner at the head pulley. Secondary cleaners are often added for final cleaning.
Belt cleaners are offered in a variety of belt sizes and speeds, regardless of industry or type of material.
