New pin latch belt cleaner simplifies service

Martin Engineering has announced the introduction of its new Pin Latch Secondary Belt Cleaner, a tungsten carbide-tipped secondary cleaner that slides in and out for service without requiring any tools. The design features a square, tabbed mainframe with segmented blades connected by a simple pin mechanism, allowing easy access and quick blade replacement by semi-skilled personnel.

The pin latch design provides adjustable tension for varying conditions, such as belt speed, material being conveyed and belt cleaner position relative to the head pulley. It will handle belt speeds up to 5.1 m/s, and the versatile unit accommodates belt rollback. The carbide tip is acid- and abrasion-resistant, and the assembly is well suited for use on belts with mechanical splices, smoothly adapting to and riding over the splices without damaging the splice, belt or blade.

The Martin Pin Latch Secondary Belt Cleaner delivers excellent cleaning performance with quicker blade recovery, and provides the versatility to adjust blade performance to match a wide range of application characteristics. It is considered a preferred upgrade for Martin SQC2 and SC16 Secondary Cleaners.
