The U-Type® Secondary Belt Cleaner is designed for constant blade-to-belt contact for the highest cleaning efficiency – especially in tough applications requiring removal of water and sticky carryback materials. The U-shaped design conforms to the belt, allowing the blade tip to shear stubborn carryback materials from the belt.
Blade replacement is made easy with the U-Type's removable plate. Simply release the blade tension, loosen the bolts on the back of the cleaner pole, slide the worn blade out, insert the new blad0,e and retighten the bolts. The job can be done in minutes.
The Flexco Mineline® endorsement means its proven in heavy-tonnage applications that test the strength and durability of your conveyor system.
