Carry-back Problems

Our Pit-Skalper® conveyor belt pre-cleaner is highly effective in challenging service conditions to remove carry-back from the conveyor system. The patented E-Z Torque® tensioner featuring stainless steel spring, 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. 

 
Features and Benefits

Excellent Performance – of our patented Pit-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 tensioner
featuring stainless steel spring, 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.

Torque Spring – provides a greater degree of tensioning per inch
of blade, versus 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.

Corrosion Resistant – Zinc plated tensioner and mounting tube.

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