This family of primary conveyor belt cleaners has been engineered for the fastest, most heavily-loaded belts, with industrial-strength construction that delivers effective cleaning, minimal maintenance, and long service life, even under punishing conditions.  

Martin SHD cleaners have been proven on belts up to 10 ft wide with speeds as high as 2000 ft/min, carrying loads up to 300,000 tons per day. Designed with patented “CARP” technology to achieve constant angle geometry to match pulley diameter accurately across all stages of service life, the massive urethane blades deliver up to 42 sq in. of wear surface -- more than seven times the wearable surface of standard cleaner designs. With a broad range of color-coded, high-performance blade choices available, the cleaners can be specified to suit a wide variety of materials and performance requirements.

The SHD Series was developed for super heavy-duty applications, with structural steel components to prevent bending of the main frame. The durable construction helps eliminate carryback, reduce emergency outages, and minimize unscheduled downtime. In some applications, it has been shown to be the only design that can withstand the severe operating conditions.

“This design can allow conveyor operators to improve maintenance planning and reduce expenses,” said product engineer Daniel Marshall. “With lower maintenance requirements, it saves money through fewer repairs and blade replacements, as well as faster service procedures. The reduced carryback means improved working conditions and plant safety, maximized equipment life, and reduced cleanup.”  

The SHD 1200 Series cleaner is built for high-speed conveyors with a head pulley larger than 48 in. in diameter and belt widths from 42-120 in. With blades up to 12 in. tall, a heavy structural steel frame prevents bending, even with high tonnages and large lumps. The SHD 1200 was designed in tandem with its tensioner system to provide effective cleaning and reduced service requirements. Fully compatible with reversing conveyors and belts with mechanical splices, it has a service temperature range of -30 to 300°F and can be used in corrosive conditions or underground applications.
