Martin Engineering: How to achieve cleaner, safer and more productive Conveying with optimized Belt Cleaner Tension

Neponset (IL), United States The ability to maintain the proper force required to keep the edge of a belt cleaner blade against the belt is a key factor in the performance of any cleaning system. Blade-to-belt pressure must be controlled to achieve optimal cleaning with a minimal rate of blade wear. A belt cleaner that is properly installed and adjusted as described in this Martin Engineering article helps to minimize carryback and spillage, reducing risk and overall operating costs.
