New Rotary Brush Cleaner launched by ASGCO

New Rotary Brush Cleaner launched by ASGCO

The new Rotary Brush Cleaner uses the speed and force of the belt rolling over hundreds of SBR rubber fingertips to significantly eliminate material accumulation and dust.

 

ASGCO said that rotary action, finger length and spacing allow the carryback to fall free instead of clogging, which is useful on worn or pitted vulcanised or mechanically spliced belts. It is designed to effectively clean chevron, cleated and raised-rib belts without the wear associated with conventional brush-type cleaners.

 

The bolt-up style mounting found on the new Rotary Brush Cleaner is designed to make for easy adjustment up and down, allowing the cleaning pitch to be set with the turn of a wrench as the SBR rubber fingertips wear.

 

SBR rubber provides abrasion resistance for longer drum service life which ranges from one to three years depending upon the application, conditions, and the material being transported. ASGCO said this is ideal for use with chevron style conveyor belting as seen on pulp and paper applications, wood yards and recycling.

 

The new Rotary Brush Cleaner is available in 18-inch (450mm) to 84-inch (2,200mm) belt width with a maximum belt speed of 700 fpm (3.5 m/sec). It can be installed with no motor or with a motor without excessive power consumption.

 

“ASGCO’s Rotary Brush Cleaner takes a new and effective approach to eliminate trapped material, making installation, adjustment, blade replacement and maintenance fast and easy,” the company said.
