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.

The cleaner’s bolt-up style mounting makes for easy adjustment up and down; as SBR Rubber Fingertips wear, the cleaning pitch cab be set with the turn of a wrench. SBR rubber provides abrasion resistance for longer drum service life. which ranges from one to three years depending upon the application, conditions, and the material being transported. Available in 18- to 84-in. belt width with a maximum belt speed of 700 fpm, it can be installed with no motor or with a motor running below excessive power consumption levels. — ASGCO, Allentown, Pa., 800/344-4000; www.asgco.com
