New Pre-Cleaner Can Extend Life of Vulcanized Conveyor Belts
Martin Engineering's new cleaning blade for use on vulcanized conveyor belts features a polyurethane blend and tungsten carbide tip designed to deliver service life two to three times longer than conventional urethane blades.The QCTM #1 MT maintains consistent tension without frequent adjustment, requiring retensioning 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 QCTM #1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner. Utilizing both spring and twist tensioners, the QCTM #1 MT fits both one- and three-piece mainframes.
