Material sticking to the belt after the discharge point, also known as carryback, is problematic. Carryback leads to belt mistracking, shortened belt life, premature equipment failure, lower production, and increased risk of worker injury.
When you compare the costs of carryback to the cost of reducing carryback, you typically find belt cleaners pay for themselves very quickly. However, getting the best performance from belt cleaners can be more difficult.
What you will learn:
- Dynamics of a multiple belt cleaner system
- Selecting the proper cleaner
- Improving belt cleaner performance through splicing and belt surface preservation
- How installation and maintenance affect belt cleaner performance
