OPERATORS in bulk handling industries, especially mining and quarrying, can use a simple new product to clean conveyor belts.
K-Spiral return roller from Kinder & Co is used to eliminate the build up forming on return rollers that is renowned for spillage and belt mis-tracking.
"This product is very easy to install as it simply replaces a conventional return roller. It is suitable for all belt widths and effective in reducing the amount of cleaning time caused by conveyor carry back," managing director Neil Kinder said.
"Ideally, the spiral rollers most suitable installation position is over a discharge chute or a collection hopper."
Especially effective in conveyor systems handling sticky, abrasive or wet materials, K-Spiral roller comprises a standard return roller fitted with wear resistant polyurethane rings that form a spiral configuration.
It is this configuration that creates the cleaning action as works to the centre of the belt at the same time assisting belt tracking. The unit is not powered as it is driven by the belt surface contact.
