KINDER & Co has released a new version of its K-Brush conveyor belt cleaner - Type LM.
The new cleaner has a 'sealed for life' and maintenance-free shaft mounted gear reducer, thus enabling its use in sensitive environments handling food and plants, in laboratories, as well as mainstream bulk handling installations.
Designed to be installed alongside both rubber and PVC belt cleaning applications, it has shown to perform well in applications where belts are cleated, chevron or reversible and/or joined with mechanical fasteners.
K-Brush LM Type is also supplied with a choice of brush configurations which are selected for the specific applications. A potentially explosive application would require an anti-static brush fill.
K-Brush Type LM is a standardised unit that sweeps the belt clean using a rotary action. Wet, dry, sticky, hydroscopically charged and abrasive products are effectively handled.
The unit is essentially a system of non-corroding polyethylene brushes giving the product a long lifespan and the ability to work safely in food grade environments. Bristles are an abrasive resistant polypropylene, with a wide variety of bristles being available.
A rotary powered brush cleans all types of surfaces. Typical belt widths range up to 750mm, with applications up to 2400mm being handled by heavy duty units. Details of these are available on request.
