Belt cleaning provides an important service to belt conveyors. Belt cleaners remove residual material that otherwise carries over onto the return side of the conveyor belt interfering with the conveyor’s efficient operations, and posing risks to the safety of plant and personnel. Material carryover increases the risk of fire, shortens the life of idlers and conveyor components and puts workers in harm’s way when they are sent to clean under the conveyors.
Primary cleaners are installed to remove residual material from the belt and must be mounted below the material trajectory at the discharge point. Even when properly mounted, primary cleaners are still subjected to a deluge of material, particularly when the conveyed material is wet and more likely to stick to the belt past the nominal discharge point.
