Features and Benefits
Skalper_Belt Width Charts

Excellent Performance – of our patented Skalper® Blade design
maintains an effective cleaning edge throughout the life of the blade
with its unique horizontal sipes/wear-grooves across the entire width
of the blade cleaning edge and by the use of the arc-shaped back
side of the blade to ensure a sharp cleaning edge.

E-Z Torque® Tensioner – (lifetime warranty) patented – made
of all 304 stainless steel mounting plates, collars and springs allows the
blades to self adjust throughout the entire life of the blade and is the
most robust and accurate belt cleaner tensioner in the industry.

One-Time Tensioning – the patented E-Z Torque® tensioner maintains
constant tension throughout the life of the blade.

Blade-Wear Indicator – allows to monitor blade wear easily without
having to shut the system down for inspection.

Torque Spring – provides a greater degree of tensioning per inch
of blade, verses compression springs which require more tensioning
adjustment for the life of the blade.

Rubber Corrugated Dust Covers and UHMW Bushings
ensures no build-up in the spring tensioning area and provides
smooth non-binding tensioning.

Quick-Change Blade – stainless steel pin blade change-out system
uses no-tools.

Optional – Ceramic (XC) blade available for high speed, high
tonnage conveyor systems.

Easily Maintained – and tensioned from one side of the conveyor.
