It is ideal for coal-fired power plants, hard rock mining, steel mills, iron ore, aggregate and mineral (phosphate, potash, salt) mining.

Key features include:

  • Resilient blade support absorbs severest shock in tough applications of underground mining.
  • Blades move independently to maintain contact.
  • Durable, 3-½ in. thick square tubing for extreme environments.
  • Universal mounting for easy installation.
  • Heavy duty Tungsten Carbide or Hd400 blades are available.
  • Compact design that requires less than 9 in. of clearance to be installed and maintained.
  • Safe for mechanical splices and belt speeds up to 1000 fpm (5 m/sec.).
  • Long-wearing abrasion resistance – tungsten carbide blades provide and maintain a maximum effective cleaning edge against the conveyor belt.
  • Impact absorbing tension cushions – tension each individual blade to the belt for a controlled and effective conveyor belt cleaning across the entire width of the belt.
