Belt cleaner manufacturer introduces lifetime equipment guarantee on tensioners and mainframes
IN what is said to be a first for the bulk material handling industry, a global manufacturer of conveyor belt cleaning systems is offering lifetime no-cost replacement of tensioners and mainframes for belt cleaners that are fitted exclusively with the company’s cleaner blades.
Under the Forever Belt Cleaner Guarantee, Martin Engineering will provide replacement parts, as required, for all cleaner assemblies using their urethane belt scrapers, regardless of model or blade type.
The company’s replacement urethane blades are mixed, formed and cured in a computer-controlled, modular workstation designed and built by the company’s engineers. This allows for the highest levels of quality control and a one-day turnaround on most orders.
Engineered to effectively remove carryback, reduce material loss and provide longer belt life, the six colour-coded blade types allow operators to perfectly match urethane compounds to the specific belt, speed and types of material.
Some blade types are designed to perform under extreme temperatures as low as –40°F and as high as 300°F, and others are best suited for specific cargo such as hot slag and clinker, or moist materials.
Martin Engineering primary cleaners are produced using the patented Constant-Area Radial Pressure (CARP) curved design, first introduced by Martin, to deliver consistent cleaning through all stages of blade life.
Moreover, Martin assemblies allow one-pin replacement, making maintenance a safe, no-tool operation that can be performed from outside the transfer chute.
