ASGCO® Introduces Their New Pit-Skalper® Belt Cleaner

Allentown, PA.:   ASGCO® “Complete Conveyor Solutions” is proud to announce the introduction of a new model to their industry leading line of primary belt cleaners.  The Pit-Skalper® is based on the proven technology and performance of the Skalper®, which is used throughout the world in the harshest environments.  This new design is specifically geared to handle the needs of aggregate, ready mix, portable crushing and screening plants, sand, gravel, asphalt and recycling, while providing superior cleaning to remove carryback from the conveyor belt.

Pit-Skalper® uses the same patented E-Z Torque® tensioner as the rest of the Skalper® line featuring a stainless steel spring, allowing the blades to self-adjust throughout the entire life of the blade, making it the most robust and accurate belt cleaner tensioner in the industry.  The tensioner and mounting tube are zinc plated for corrosion resistance and the blades can be quickly changed from one side of the conveyor belt.

“We listened to the needs of our customers; they want an effective belt cleaner that can hold up to the tough conditions of portable crushing and screening operations, recycling facilities and ready-mix and asphalt operations,” said Aaron Gibbs, President of ASGCO.  “After working with our engineering and manufacturing teams we developed a primary belt cleaner to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”

Pit-Skalper® can be installed on any belt with maximum blade speeds of 600fpm (3.0m/sec) and a pulley diameter of 10”-20”.
