Designed for aggregates handling

Martin Engineering from Nepon­set, IL/USA has announced a conveyor belt cleaner engineered specifically for the aggregate industry. The M­artin® PV™ Cleaner is a durable, one-piece blade that contains approximately 20 % more ur­ethane than comparable primary cleaners, yielding a longer life in challenging service conditions. This aggressive design for gravel applications is able to remove even wet, sticky sand from belts 18–72 inches (450-1800 mm) wide.

The cleaning width is matched to the conveyor load profile. Typically supplied as a complete assembly, it can accommodate a standard cable tensioner, spring tensioner or the Martin® TwistTM tensioner. The durable frame can be fitted with solid or segmented blades.  Maximum recommended belt speed is 500 FPM (2.54 m/s).

The belt cleaner features the company’s patented Constant Angle Radial Pressure (CARP) design for consistent cleaning throughout all stages of blade life. The specially engineered curved blade maintains the same contact angle, even as the belt wears, helping to retain cleaning efficiency. Engineered to simplify maintenance and reduce costs, the mounting system delivers “no-tool” replacement, as it’s simply dropped into place and secured with a wire lock pin.

“This cleaner uses an aggressive angle of attack to the belt for improved cleaning efficiency,” explained Martin Engineering Senior Product Specialist Dave Mueller “And the quick replacement feature means never having to deal with corroded bolts or other fasteners during blade changes.”
