How to choose the conveyor belt cleaner
The conveyor belt cleaner plays a significant role in the conveyor. It can remove the residual materials stuck on the conveyor belt in time and quickly, so as to prevent them from being brought back to the return branch, causing residual accumulated stay on the conveyor drum and the return rollers during the belt running which results belt wear and deviation, at the same time the belt cleaner can also avoid the danger of casualties caused by artificial removal of attachments. How should we choose conveyor belt cleaner?
If you want to know how to choose the conveyor belt cleaner, you should first choose the relative products. Alloy belt cleaner is a very nice product among conveyor belt cleaner products , and it is also a product with a very large amount of usage in the market at present. This product has all the advantages of belt cleaning machine system with its outstanding cleaning effect in the cleaning process.
However, some people gradually found that the question of whether hard materials are better than other materials is not so accurate, because not all alloy materials are satisfactory. There are certain limitations of alloy materials in the choice of making belt cleaner, and the design price of alloy products is also high. Therefore, with the increase of cost of alloy materials belt cleaner, people prefer to choose polyurethane materials. Some people doubt the sustainable use of polyurethane materials. However, in the choice of conveyor belt cleaner, polyurethane materials have always been used as a popular product.
About the advantages of PU material, the price is relatively more favorable than alloy belt scraper, which can be accepted by most of users. However, many high-quality required users may feel that PU material is not so much reliability. What we can conclude is that there is not much difference between polyurethane materials and alloy belt cleaner scrapers. One certain difference in appearance and another certain difference in raw material cost. Therefore, we can also think that the belt cleaner which combine polyurethane with alloy models are relatively satisfactory, which have the characteristics of popularization in price cost and good sustainable in the help for conveyor belt productivity. This will indeed become a good choice in application and business of conveyor belt cleaner system and will also become a more affordable choice. As conveyor belt maintenance products distributors, have to consider that the cost is the way for enterprises to survive, meanwhile the qualified products are also very important for the development of the enterprises .
1. Scraper conveyor belt cleaner: With the help of the gravity of the counterweight and the elasticity of the belt cleaner tensioners, the scraper fixed on the cleaner frame is in close contact with the working face of the conveyor belt to remove residual materials on it. According to the number of scrapers, it can be divided into single, double and split multiple scrapers. Scrapers are made of rubber, carbide alloy, ceramics, etc.
2. Rotary conveyor belt cleaner: It made of an independently driven spindle which mounted bristle brush or scraper. The bristle brush is made of nylon, and the scraper is made of rubber or carbide alloy. The high-speed rotation direction of the rotary cleaner is opposite to the running direction of the conveyor belt (the linear speed of the brush or scraper is not less than 10m/s). Apart from directly cleaning the conveyor belt, the brush or scraper also forms a low-pressure area at its front because of its high speed, thus strengthening the cleaning effect.
This kind of cleaner is often installed at the head and tail rollers of the conveyor to clean powdery granular materials. Belt cleaner plays an important role in the conveyor. In operation, if the attachments of the tail drum are removed artificially, it is easy to cause serious casualties. Cleaner has the characteristics of convenient and quick removal of roller residual.
In the process of installation and application of cleaner, maintenance problems such as poor effect of cleaner, rapid wear of cleaning scraper blades head caused by unreasonable design, hidden dangers caused by inadequate installation ... are usually happen. Therefore, the user should pay attention to cleaner quality, cleaner choose, cleaner installation and cleaner repair or maintenance from purchase plan to using them. All steps are important for saving cost and keep the best cleaning effect for your conveyor machines to together improve the productivity.
