Rotary brush belt cleaner

The latest addition to the company’s Secondary Belt Cleaner line uses the speed and force of the belt rolling over hundreds of SBR Rubber Fingertips to significantly eliminate material accumulation and dust. Rotary action, finger length and spacing allow the carryback to fall free instead of clogging. The device suits worn or pitted vulcanized or mechanically spliced belts, and is designed to clean chevron, cleated and raised-rib belts without the wear associated with conventional brush-type cleaners.
