Why do we need conveyor conveyor belt cleaners
Why do we need conveyor conveyor belt cleaners in transportation systems?
Conveyor belt cleaner is a kind of cleaning equipment mainly used in the conveyor belt system. During the transportation of the general conveying system, there are usually many residual materials may adhere to the belt when the belt run to non-work surface. If they are not cleaned in time, the belt running will be impacted, and the whole belt will be stuck and broken. The function of sweeper is particularly significant in the process of belt operation. It is installed under the head drums or belt non-work surface, which can bring timely cleaning to the working belt and avoid the phenomenon of materials adhesion to the belt. Material adhesion belt is a normal situation during conveyor belt running, so the use of sweeper is also quite frequent and necessary in industries. It is very convenient to use. It can be installed and used without too many auxiliary tools. It is suitable for various industries producing various types of products. The belt cleaners can be divided into primary conveyor belt cleaner, secondary belt cleaner, and third non-work belt cleaners. Primary cleaner plays the most important role in conveyor cleaning system. It can also be called a sweeper. It is installed on the conveyor belt head drum position. Most of adhesive materials are cleaned through it for the first time. It can clean most of the adhesive on the outside of the belt. Apart from Primary cleaner, all other auxiliary sweepers group work together complete the cleaning of the belt.
What types of conveyor conveyor belt cleaners do we have?
At present, our company mainly produces four different types of cleaners, which will be described one by one below, including their materials, uses, characteristics and other information.
The primary conveyor belt cleaner is installed below the center line of the drum head. The conveyor belt cleaner blade is made of polyurethane material and has the advantages of good wear resistance, wear resistance, fracture resistance, protecting the belt from damage and prolonging the service life of the belt.As we all know, the primary belt cleaner is an important part of the belt conveyor cleaning system. It is located below the drum head and is the first step of the whole cleaning system. The remaining 90% of materials can be cleaned during transportation. Therefore, the strength of the tensioner and the wear resistance of the blade must be guaranteed, which has a great influence on the product.
The secondary conveyor belt cleaner is installed on the non-work side of the conveyor belt and working together with the primary conveyor belt cleaner. The primary conveyor belt cleaner has a self-adjusting tension spring system and maintains close contact with the conveyor belt. Do not damage the conveyor belt, so as to achieve good cleaning effect.
As the name suggests, the secondary carrier belt cleaner is mainly made of tungsten, which is a metal element. It has the characteristics of high melting point, high hardness, evaporation bottom pressing, low evaporation speed and stable chemical properties. It is precisely because tungsten has the characteristics of high melting point and strong stability that the cleaner made of it is of good quality and will not be damaged due to friction heat generation.
Dry wipe conveyor belt cleaner is the third enhancement of the belt conveyor cleaning system. Made of polyurethane and in close contact with the belt surface, it helps to remove residual moisture or fine substances and improve productivity.
The utility model relates to a V-shaped belt plow cleaner, which is installed in the front of the feeding return roller on the non-working surface of the belt. The purpose is to remove residual material caught between the drum and the conveyor belt.
What if we don’t use a conveyor conveyor belt cleaner?
During the materials transportation of the belt conveyor system, conveyor belt cleaner application is very necessary parts for improve the conveyor productivity. What will happen if the conveyor belt cleaner is not used? In the first paragraph, we briefly explained the necessity and reasons for using the cleaner, but the most important reason is that the use of the cleaner can prolong the service life of the belt in the long run. According to common sense, we can know that each scratch will cause varying degrees of damage to the belt, and even make the belt thinner. The cleaner effectively avoids this scratch and maximizes the operation efficiency of the belt; At the same time, it also reduces the number and cost of belt replacement, and effectively prolongs the service life of the belt.
In this paper, through the introduction of the conveyor belt cleaner, we understand its material, purpose, characteristics and other information. At the same time, we can also see its key role in the conveyor belt transportation process and its functions to prolong the service life of the belt.
