Conveyor Belt Cleaning Systems
Conveyor Scrapers: Effective Way to Reduce Carry Back of Dirt, Dust or Fine Materials
Tacky and clinging materials found in mineral process conveying often cause hazards to both your equipment and the functioning of your conveyor system. These materials often remain on the conveyor belt on the return side, eventually drying and dislodging onto equipment and sometimes even operators themselves.
This carry back, which often originates from the unloading point, will result in a number of problems. If you install a conveyor belt cleaner which removes material adhering to the return belt at the unloading point, you will minimise the following:
- Depreciation of your componentry
- Excessive accumulation of material (s) on your idlers
- The conveyor belt misaligning
- Chain reaction of wear which will affect operational effectiveness.
3 Main Types of Conveyor Scrapers
Conveyor cleaning systems can come in many forms, to suit a number of cleaning applications. There are 3 main types of conveyor scrapers:
- Primary belt cleaners (also known as pre-cleaner),
- Secondary Belt Cleaners (also known as tertiary cleaners) and
- Return belt cleaners (also known as ploughs’).
As speeds and loads on conveyor belts increase, it is more effective to have a system of conveyor belt cleaners pass over the area.

Minimising Maintenance to Save on Major Repair Costs
There are some far-reaching positive returns with investing in the right cleaners for your conveyor system. Not only do they drive down operational costs but also improve the conveyor performance and in turn the safety of your team. You need the product on the belt and not on the ground.
By effectively removing the potential hazards from your belt, you extend the performance of your conveyor and greatly influence the management of your maintenance and clean-up costs.
