Belt scraper design simplifies maintenance

For conveyor operators every-where, the combination of dirt, dust, confined space and expensive equipment presents a constant challenge. Now, Horizon Conveyor Equipment has unveiled its latest development in belt scraper technology, set to play a key role in keeping conveyor belts running.

After consulting widely with operators in the UK and overseas, Horizon has developed an innovative concept called the 'H' Primary Scraper Range. The new system has been designed to eradicate widespread problems with traditional primary belt scraper designs, where engineers have often been deterred by complex fitting and long-term maintenance issues.

According to Alan Bowler, managing director of Horizon Conveyor Equipment, for conveyor operators using primary and secondary belt scrapers as a cleaning system, the primary belt cleaner is a very important part of that combination. However, he says it can be difficult to mount a standard primary or tangential scraper because of restrictions caused by the motor, gearbox, steelwork or simply because the chute has limited space. 

"The 'H' Primary Range over-comes these problems," he says. "With the 'H' Primary Scraper Range, the entire system hangs over the top of the belt frame and is externally chute mounted. This means the scraper can be easily fitted to most conveyor head chutes."
