Conveyor belt secondary cleaners

The right cleaner lasts longer

Secondary cleaners are used to remove fines from a conveyor belt. Many conveyor belts can be satisfactorily cleaned with a primary and a secondary cleaner, but in some applications an even higher efficiency is achieved by utilizing additional secondary cleaners.

Selecting an optimal secondary cleaner

In the majority of cases, the secondary belt cleaner is positioned immediately after the head pulley with the purpose of removing the remaining fines left on the belt. Different designs and material construction are available, all with the goal of maintaining continual belt pressure and a clean surface — without damaging the belt. Many feature economical reversible designs to double wear life, and/or modular change-outs which minimize overall waste. Improved performance, maintaining belt life, and extending wear-utility all positively work toward your sustainability mission.

We recommend that a combination of primary and secondary belt cleaners be used.

Metso Outotec supplies different sizes of conveyor systems depending on the volume of material to be conveyed. Belt speed, belt size and pulley diameter all vary.

We do not classify our solutions according to industry segments, but rather according to the application within the segment. That’s because we’ve noticed 70% - 80% of conveyors used in mining are at the smaller end of the scale, even though this is where you also find some of the biggest conveyors. In other words, the application counts more than the industry.
