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.

West River offers belt scrapers and cleaners from several brands including Martin Engineering, Richwood, Superior Industries and ASGCO.

Belt cleaners improve efficiency by providing the following benefits:

  • Increased profitability by reducing the cost of unnecessary cleanup from spills
  • Less material loss by scraping the belts clean at the head pulley
  • Longer lasting conveyor equipment. Material that is not scraped often ends up inside the conveyor system damaging rollers and idlers.
  • Reduced dust problems and belt maintenance. Fugitive dust is a by-product of material that falls from under the belt on the return trip.

West River offers belt scrapers and cleaners from several high performing brands. These brands include Martin Engineering, Richwood, Superior Industries and ASGCO.
