How to Deal With Conveyor Belt Cleaner Abrasion？
The cleaner plays the role of cleaning the belt, which can effectively prevent the material from adhering to the belt, creating a clean and environmentally friendly conveying environment for the enterprise. However, the newly purchased cleaners of some companies were damaged in a short time, and the blade parts were severely worn, which not only failed to achieve the expected results, but also affected production efficiency. Today, I will analyze it according to the actual working conditions to help you find out the reason why the blade wears badly.
In the belt cleaning system, the tension device is a key part. Only by maintaining the proper pressure of the blade edge on the belt can a better cleaning effect be achieved. If the tension is too high, it will increase the friction between the blade and the belt, resulting in premature blade wear. If the tension is too low, many materials will be caught between the high-speed belt and the blade, causing serrated wear on the blade.
Another reason for the rapid wear of the blade is that the belt is idling for a long time. The material often contains moisture during transportation, which can lubricate and cool the belt. The surface of the belt is too dry during idling, and the embedded small particles will constantly rub the blade increasing the wear rate of the blade.
Another potential source of wear is that the material temperature exceeds the allowable range of the blade temperature. When the belt speed increases greatly, the heat in the blade will continue to accumulate, reducing its strength and causing damage.
In addition to the above external factors, the inaccurate material or selection and installation of the cleaner will also cause the blade to wear out too quickly.
We should choose the appropriate conveyor belt cleaner according to the width, speed, and front drum diameter of the belt on site. The scraper holder can be equipped with a buffer compensation mechanism to facilitate the passage of protruding materials. The blade can be made of polyurethane composite material or alloy rubber blade, both of which have the characteristics of low friction coefficient, good wear resistance, and moderate hardness, and have good compatibility to various belts, which can reduce unnecessary wear of belts and blades.
In addition, under complex and changeable working conditions, only by making an accurate selection of the cleaner, correct installation, regular maintenance, and adjustment, can the problems of cleaner wear out too quickly and material adhesion and scattering be fundamentally reduced, providing a good foundation for the follow-up work.
