ASGCO cleans up conveyor belts with U-Scrape

ASGCO has announced the latest addition to its line of Secondary Belt Cleaner products for bulk material handling applications.

The U-Scrape™ Secondary Cleaner’s, unique ‘U’ shape design conforms to the return side of the belt, which allows the blade to maintain the maximum pressure in the centre of the belt where the majority of the carryback material builds up, according to the company.

The blade is offered in two options: solid urethane, or with tungsten carbide tips embedded in urethane. With its curved U-shape blade, the U-Scrape blade tips are in constant contact with the belt to provide the highest cleaning efficiency, especially in tough applications.

The U-Scrape belt cleaner is primarily intended for use in conveyor bulk material handling applications in the following industries: aggregates, recycling, wastewater treatment, pulp & paper, coal, coal-fired power plants, chemical processing among others where carryback and spillage needs to be eliminated.
