Optimal site availability and productivity relies on keeping conveyor belts moving constantly, efficiently and with minimal shutdowns.
Conveyor system inefficiencies can be attributed to the issue of material carry back, commonly referred to as any excess fugitive material that sticks to the underside of the return belt beyond the discharge point at the head pulley.
Material carry back has the potential to cause serious operational problems, such as risk to personal safety and belt misalignment.
Conveyor primary belt cleaners serve a vital role in keeping conveyor belts running smoothly and efficiently plus a host of other advantages:
- Carry back reduction.
- Extends service life of belt.
- Reduces cleaning up costs and maintenance issues.
- Improves overall site performance, safety and environmental impacts.
