There are many conveyor belt cleaners in the market place and they vary from a piece of rubber being applied to the belt to the more sophisticated tungsten carbide type. Ansquip’s new primary scraper has a number of refinements that have their beginnings associated with some other scrapers, but Ansquip has improved on the techniques, to give a truly unique scraper.
Each blade is independently loaded, so the primary scraper can accommodate full differential wear across the belt face, thus, increasing the efficiency of the scraper for a longer period of time, when compared to multi-bladed scrapers where the blades are not independently loaded.
With each of the blade/buffer units [multiples of 150mm], they are fully enclosed, so material cannot pass over the blade and build up between the belt and the buffer, which, in some scrapers causes the blade to be dislodged from the belt, making the scraper ineffective.
In many applications, blades are subjected to fine materials being lodged in the devices that hold them in location, making them difficult to remove at the time of servicing. Ansquip’s unique blade does not require tools, apart from a gentle tap, to remove it from the blade carrier; in most cases, they can be removed by hand. The benefit is down time is kept to a minimum and housekeeping can be done in a fraction of the time it takes to service similar units.
Ansquip can supply its patented slip-on blades in a variety of materials, from polyurethane, FRAS rubber, to combinations of both with tungsten carbide inserts, so Ansquip can accommodate for belts with good surfaces and vulcanised splice to slightly damaged belts and it can mix the types of blades to suit the application.
Ansquip’s scraper has been designed to give a higher degree of efficiency and to reduce the time and difficulty of servicing; pipes, clamps and fasteners are also supplied in stainless steel to increase the longevity of the complete unit.
