A new conveyor belt cleaner from Martin Engineering is engineered to contain a smaller total volume of urethane while maximising the usable area.
The company says it is produced in a streamlined process that allows the manufacturer to reduce the purchase price and overall cost of ownership.
“By minimising the non-consumable portion of the blade, the heavy-duty primary belt cleaner delivers the same performance and durability as the model it replaces, while reducing the amount of urethane going to landfills,” says Martin Engineering.
“It uses the company’s CARP (Constant Angle Radial Pressure) technology to maintain the most efficient cleaning angle throughout its service life.”
The Martin QB1 Cleaner HD features a no-tool replacement process that can be performed safely by one person in less than five minutes.
Martin Engineering says the urethane formulation can accommodate belt speeds of up to (4.6m/second) and service temperatures of -40°-70°C, and the QB1 HD is available in lengths of 457mm-2,438 mm) and can also be ordered in 3.05m slugs, allowing distributors or customers to cut to length for increased versatility.
