Aggregate operation avoids safety fines with a new belt cleaner

belt cleaner

Maintaining a clean belt is one of the most important factors in the overall efficiency, profitability, and safety of a conveyor operation. A new belt cleaner has been brought to the market that is proving to provide excellent cleaning efficiency and allowing maintenance crews to spend time on other proactive tasks other than cleaning-up carryback.

Flexco just released a new secondary belt cleaner designed for excellent cleaning efficiency and minimal maintenance. The CBS Continuous Blade Secondary Cleaner features Australian-made carbide tips across the entire width of a one-piece solid polyurethane blade. The unsegmented blade provides a squeegee effect, making this a great solution for abrasive and wet applications looking for a long-wearing solution for your belt.

In a recent trial at an aggregate operation, the CBS cleaner was able to maximise the site’s sellable material and avoided costly safety fines caused by carryback around the conveyor.
