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.

Concrete boom pump safety measures go ballistic

Python Protective Covers and Sleeves put safety at the forefront of concrete pumping by reducing the risks associated with pipe blow-outs and slurry spatter. Product developers credit Python performance to ballistic-grade fabric technology coupled with a user-friendly, universal design to protect workers, equipment and jobsites. The covers and sleeves are designed to distribute high pressure mix or slurry bursts through overlapping-pocketed material. Upon impact, internally tucked fabric releases, absorbing kenetic energy and ballooning the cover or sleeve up to 30 percent more than its original size.

Fast-set coating

HT-100F polyurea coating can be applied in cooler temperatures without affecting durability. A chemical reaction draws the polyurea into the concrete to create a strong bond to the surface. The fast-setting coating’s elongation properties help bridge cracks in concrete, deliver lower permeability for better waterproofing, and provide decades of protection. HT-100F is shown here at the site of a 1 million-plus square foot resort project. Specialty Products, Inc., Lakewood, Wash., 253/588-7101;
