Flexco Y-type secondary cleaner for conveyors

Tuesday, 23 October, 2018 | Supplied by: Flexco (Aust) Pty Ltd



Material carryback is one of the main causes of potential problems in belt conveyor systems. To prevent this, operators rely on precleaners for coarse materials and secondary cleaners for fine cleaning, and in many cases these cleaning systems can remove more than 90% of carryback.

Flexco’s Y-Type flexible secondary cleaner can be equipped with various polyurethane or carbide blades, giving users a system that meets their particular requirements in an efficient way. Where large quantities of dry foodstuffs have to be conveyed, Flexco also offers its secondary cleaner with chemical-resistant polyurethane blades meeting food industry regulations.

Flexco offers this flexible solution for both normal and heavy usage, so it is available with a maximum belt speed of between 3 and 3.8 m/s. A spring tensioner maintains a constant blade pressure on the belt at all times, providing a high degree of fine cleaning. The pressure of the tensioner ensures that the 75 mm blade segments adapt to worn and damaged belts too.

The pole has a diameter of 60 mm for standard loads and 72 mm for heavy-duty loads. Depending on usage, the Y-Type is suitable for belt widths of 450–1200 mm (normal loads) and 900–1800 mm for heavy-duty loads. It can be used at temperatures from -35 to 82°C. Clearly visible wear marks indicate when the segments have to be replaced.
