Powered-Brush Conveyor Belt Cleaner

February 7, 2013

This powered-brush cleaner for conveyor belt applications features a rotating design that removes material accumulation and dust in difficult applications. Well suited to belts that use raised elements (cleats, chevrons, ribs, or lugs) to assist in carrying material, the Martin brush cleaner is an economical solution that provides high-performance, energy-efficient operation, even in conditions involving sticky materials or stringy fibers, such as coal and biomass. The 230/460-volt, 3-phase electric motor provides successful cleaning with minimal power consumption. A 1-hp motor powers the units for 18-42-in. belts, and a 2-hp motor drives the cleaners for 48-96-in. The motor can be operated in either direction, and the unit can be installed on the left or right side of the cleaner, depending on the plant’s requirements. Constructed of durable steel and stainless steel components, the cost-effective belt cleaner delivers a long-service life, holding up even in the harshest operating environments. The design allows easy installation and maintenance.
