Martin Engineering has introduced a design specifically for applications where space for installation is limited. The SQC2S RM (Reduced Mini) is a compact secondary belt cleaner that allows installation in close quarters, built with a narrow profile that resists material build-up. Patented rubber buffers maintain cleaning pressure on the design, engineered to deflect and allow splices to pass without damage to the belt or cleaner, even on reversing belts. The rugged construction incorporates individually-cushioned stainless steel blades with tungsten carbide tips for effective cleaning with negligible risk to belt, splice or blade, and it can withstand even punishing operating conditions, including corrosive environments, high-speed belts and high-tonnage loads.
Like the other designs in the SQC2 product line, blade removal and replacement is a simple operation by removing the lock pin from the main support assembly and sliding out the cartridge. The lock pins are a key component to Martin Engineering’s “no-reach design,” which allows workers to conduct their lockout/tag-out procedure more safely. The unit is one of Martin Engineering’s Safety First family of products, helping customers achieve OSHA compliance.
The tensioners allow simple adjustment of blade-to-belt pressure to maintain cleaning efficiency, regardless of blade wear. The SQC2S RM is expected to find utility in applications where installation space is at a premium, including biomass, recycling, waste-to-energy, trash sorting, foundries and steel production.
