Spring Tension Pre Belt Cleaner
The MATO MCP1 primary belt cleaner is an aggressive head drum cleaner consisting of multiple blade sections, in line, mounted just under the tangential centre line of the head pulley, to remove the bulk of the carryback material to return to the main flow of product being conveyed.
The MCP1 cleaner is mounted underneath the head drum to ensure no material build-up occurs on the cleaner unit, and to eliminate the risk of damage from the cleaner to the belt.
Each blade is individually mounted with a rubber tensioning cushion to ensure even blade pressure across the face of the head drum. Tungsten carbide blades are used for fully vulcanised belts and polyurethane blades are used for mechanically fastened belts.
There are a number of polyurethane blade grades to choose from. Polyurethane blades can be used in underground coal mines with stringent fire resistant, antistatic requirements, as well as surface applications with aggressive products being conveyed, to high temperature or even food grade applications.
Mato has also incorporated a polyurethane blade suitable for very dry applications with the polyurethane blade being used having its own inbuilt lubrication element to reduce the chances of chattering whilst running on dry conveyor belts.
The tension spring assembly allows for constant tension to be applied to the cleaner unit, to cater for blade wear or greater movement for the blade surface on the head drum. This reduces the maintenance frequency for adjustment.
