A new family of heavy-duty conveyor belt cleaners is engineered so the blade cartridge can be pulled away from the belt for safe access and replacement by a single worker.
Martin Engineering developed the Safe to Service (STS) blades to secure both primary and secondary cleaners rigidly to the conveyor mainframe, while offering more versatility and easier access. Initially available on the QC1 cleaner HD, QC1 cleaner XHD, and SQC2S secondary cleaner, external servicing reduces confined space entry and eliminates reach-in maintenance, while facilitating faster blade replacement. The result is greater safety and efficiency, with less downtime. Dual tensioners separately adjust either end of the blade on the primary cleaner and the cushioned reversible blade on the secondary cleaner, for a tight, consistent seal on the belt. It is designed for conveyor speeds up to 1200 ft/min and belt widths from 18 to 120 in.
