NEW PRE-CLEANER DELIVERS 2-3X BLADE LIFE ON VULCANIZED CONVEYOR BELTS
[Neponset, IL] — A new, high-quality cleaning blade for use on vulcanized conveyor belts features a special polyurethane blend and tungsten carbide tip to deliver service life 2-3 times longer than conventional urethane blades. Designed to provide excellent cleaning performance immediately, avoiding any break-in period, the QCTM #1 MT Pre-Cleaner from Martin Engineering maintains consistent tension without frequent adjustment, requiring re-tensioning just twice a year in most applications.
The new pre-cleaner was developed specifically for vulcanized belts with no mechanical splices, and can be used at belt speeds up to 900 feet per minute (4.6 meters per second). The heavy-duty blade is well suited for wet, sticky material applications, and there is no limitation to the type of material on which it can be used.
Customers will find a familiar mounting design on the new product, with the same mounting dimensions and tensioning pressures as the company’s popular QCTM #1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner. Utilizing both spring and twist tensioners, the QCTM #1 MT fits both 1- and 3-piece mainframes.
The MARTIN® QC™ #1 family of belt cleaners combines effective carry-back removal with “quick-change” one-pin replacement of the long-lasting, one-piece blade. To introduce product back into the product flow, the QCTM #1 MT is installed on the face of the head pulley. On a dual cleaner system, the new pre-cleaner is installed immediately in front of the secondary cleaner. For applications involving enclosed pulley chutework, the company recommends that one of its steel inspection doors be installed.
Martin Engineering is an industry leader in the development and manufacture of high-performance urethanes for specialized belt cleaning applications. These color-coded urethanes can be supplied in blades for any of the company’s pre-cleaners, as well as pre-cleaner designs from other manufacturers.
The company’s belt cleaners are employed in a wide variety of bulk material handling applications, including coal, wood chips, pellets, grain, rock/aggregate, cement/clinker, mining and others. Founded in 1944, Martin Engineering is the world leader in making bulk materials handling cleaner, safer and more productive. The firm is headquartered in Neponset, IL, with global reach from operations in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey and the UK.
