ASGCO Introduces New Rotary Brush Cleaner

ASGCO announces the latest addition to its line of secondary belt cleaner products. The new Rotary Brush Cleaner uses the speed and force of the belt rolling over hundreds of SBR rubber fingertips to eliminate material accumulation and dust. Rotary action, finger length, and spacing allows the carryback to fall free instead of clogging. Useful on worn or pitted vulcanized or mechanically spliced belts. It is designed to effectively clean chevron, cleated, and raised-rib belts without the wear associated with conventional brush-type cleaners.

The Bolt-Up style mounting found on the new Rotary Brush Cleaner makes for easy adjustment up and down. Allowing the cleaning pitch to be set with the turn of a wrench as the SBR rubber fingertips wear. SBR rubber provides abrasion resistance for longer drum service life which ranges from 1-3 years, depending upon the application, conditions, and the material being transported. It is ideal for use with chevron-style conveyor belting as seen on pulp and paper applications, wood yards, and recycling.

The new Rotary Brush Cleaner is available in 18- to 84-in. belt width with a maximum belt speed of 700 ft/min. It can be installed with no motor or with a motor without excessive power consumption.
