The patented Martin QB1 Cleaner HD conveyor belt cleaner
The patented Martin QB1 Cleaner HD conveyor belt cleaner is designed to reduce the cost of ownership by cleaning better and lasting longer.
Rather than fabricating the main frame from individual steel profiles welded together, the frame for the new design is roll formed out of a single piece of steel, which produces a strong and durable component. The process eliminates the time-consuming steps of having to weld any portion of the frame, which also contributes to a reduced purchase price.
The new cleaner features “CARP” (Constant Angle Radial Pressure) technology to maintain an efficient cleaning angle throughout service life, with a no-tool replacement process that can be performed safely by one person in less than five minutes. It delivers high performance and durability, while reducing the total cost of ownership.
Martin has simplified the manufacturing process and re-engineered the blade itself. The new profile is less complex to produce, and because it can be roll formed or manufactured on a press brake, it will be easier to source throughout the world from any Martin Engineering manufacturing site.
The new design also features an alignment system that facilitates precise installation. “One of the most common problems we see in the field is primary cleaners installed in the wrong position,” said senior product specialist Dave Mueller. “This cleaner was engineered for easy, accurate installation.”
