Asgco Complete Conveyer Solutions has launched a new belt cleaner which is aimed at meeting the needs of aggregate, ready mix, portable crushing and screening plants, sand, gravel, asphalt and recycling, while providing improved cleaning to remove carryback from the conveyor belt.
Called Pit-Skalper, the solution is said to operate in harsh environments and uses the same patented E-Z Torque in the Skalper range. It features a stainless steel spring that allows the blades to self-adjust throughout the entire life. 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.
Aaron Gibbs, the company’s president, said: “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. “After working with our engineering and manufacturing teams we developed a primary belt cleaner to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”
