Martin Engineering announces a factory-direct replacement program to deliver freshly-molded polyurethane cleaner blades for conveyor belts. Custom-fitted on-site and installed free of charge, customers pay only for the replacement blades.

The program from Martin Engineering assures customers of accurately sized and professionally installed replacement blades that are matched to their specific application, providing optimum cleaning performance and service life to minimize the cost of ownership.

Manufactured in-house for the highest quality assurance, the replacement blades are made with specially formulated, color-coded urethane to suit virtually any application. The blades have up to 53% more urethane in the wearable area than competitive designs, extending equipment life and durability.  To achieve consistent cleaning throughout all stages of blade life, Martin’s patented Constant Angle Radial Pressure (CARP) technology incorporates a specially engineered curved blade to maintain optimum cleaning performance and efficiency.

Martin has designed its own equipment to manufacture molded blades. This system maximizes quality control and eliminates shipping and labor costs by having the new blades delivered and installed direct from the factory. 

Martin Replacement Cleaners Reduce Costs

The need for conveyor belt cleaning is well established, delivering long-term benefits in both safety and production. Properly maintained belt cleaners reduce the accumulation of carryback under the conveyor and minimize dust buildup on rollers and other components. Excessive dust and spillage can foul rolling components and cause abrasion on the belt, reducing the life of equipment by as much as 30%. Even though a multiple-cleaner system can be abrasive when in contact with the belt, it contributes less than 5% to the overall belt wear, delivering a significant net benefit.
