Belt Cleaner System : Cleaning and Improving Belt Life


What is Belt Cleaner System? What does a belt cleaner do? As the name suggests: belt cleaner is a mechanical sub-system that keeps the conveyor belt clean by using a blade or cleaning knife. Belt cleaner consists of blade made of polyurethane or tungsten carbide or ceramic. while keeping the conveyor always clean, the belt life will be more durable and terhidar from carry back problems. Belt Conveyor cleaner removes sticky material on belt conveyor to keep it clean.


The primary cleaner removes the rougher material attached to the Conveyor belt. Material that is still attached to the belt After exiting the Head Pulley or drive pulley. In general, this belt cleaner serves as the first with primary cleaner effectiveness rates ranging from 70-80%.


Secondary Cleaner, works on the other side and serves to clean the remnants of dirt attached to the Conveyor. Because it has started the cleaning of the belt on the primary cleaner, which is a large scrap has been eliminated then the secondary cleaner serves to further clean.

Secondary Belt Cleaner Bellebanne products have the advantage of other brands that are able to clean the belt effectively up to 98%. Even in wet and muddy extreem conditions.

Carry Back problems due to belt cleaner does not work properly. this can result in the return roller being damaged quickly and the belt experiencing continuous friction until the belt life is shorter.

The role of Belt Cleaner is very important because its function as a cleaner then the belt cleaner ensures that the Conveyor remains clean. By keeping the belt always clean, the belt and other spare parts will escape the problem of wear kikis (Abrassion).


When using belt cleaner on conveyor system, one of the most important things that we must pay attention to is belt tension. This is sometimes overlooked due to the amount of time we spend on maintenance, repair, and lethal installation. Today we will discuss the main things about belt cleaning fastening and why you should do it to get the most out of your conveyor system.


Without proper Belt fastening, belt Cleaner performance can be greatly impaired. This results in poor conveyor system efficiency which can hinder the transport of materials. To overcome this, it is important to maintain an optimal Belt Cleaner voltage on the blades allowing more efficient cleaning while reducing carried back and protecting the Belt altogether.

With the correct Belt voltage, thorough cleaning is much easier to do, helping to improve system safety and productivity. An additional benefit to the correct belt voltage is reduced wear on polyurethane or tungsten carbide, helping to prolong its lifespan.

when the belt cleaner works well then the belt looks clean without scattering material and flying dust.

Conveyor cleanliness makes the umut belt longer as well as less downtime due to the initial damage from the supporting parts of the conveyor.

The high-performance Belt Cleaner keeps the belt clean, removes the Carry Back, and makes the conveyor system more secure and productive. Belt Cleaner function that cleans the belt works with all sizes and speeds of the belt, any industry or type of material.

Belt Cleaner solutions also provide belt cleaning that works in the most challenging and unique environments, such as in conveyor systems with minimal space around the Head Pulley.

Belt Cleaner Tackles Carry Back

Cleaner Function Removes carry back effectively and efficiently. Conveyor cleaner is a simple but very effective solution to improve material handling performance.

With the presence of cleaners, the conveyor will clean between 97-99%. Cleaner Solves the problem of carry back material on conveyor.

How Conveyor Cleaner Works

Generally Install a Pair or Cleaner. Primary Cleaner, Secundary Cleaner and tertier.

Primary Belt Cleaner will clean the conveyor belt from rough material.

Secundary Belt Cleaner cleans the remnants of dirt that is still attached to the Conveyor belt.

Primary Cleaner, Secondary Cleaner, Tertiery Cleaner, V Plough, Diagonal Plough.

In general Belt cleaner pairs in the Head Pulley area however some cases can be attached also to tail pulley and take up pulley.

Variant Belt Cleaner

In general, there are 3 types of cleaners, namely primary cleaner, secundary cleaner and terthier.

Some types of Blade Belt Cleaning

Currently the blade cleaner uses materials from; tungsten carbide, polyurethane and ceramic. each blade has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Problems Arise When Tension Is Too Tense on Belt Cleaner

One of the most common problems with inefficient Conveyor systems is oversized belt cleaners. Some operators believe that additional pressure will result in better cleaning which is not actually the case. Excessive tightening does not improve the performance of the Belt Cleaner, but raises new problems that did not exist in the first place. Increased pressure can cause blades to wear out faster, reduce belt cleaning efficiency, and cause serious problems with conveyor systems.

Oversight belt cleaners can create internal pressure of about 120C (250F) which can cause melting and blistering due to excessive vibration and friction. Thermal changes can be very damaging to polyurethane blades and can make it difficult for the blades to reduce carried back.

Tungsten Carbide Blade Cleaner most effective

By improving the performance of the cleaner it will provide multiple advantages such as:

Increased profitability – Eliminating carryback reduces fugitive materials and minimizes unnecessary cleaning and maintenance costs.

Minimize Material loss

Less material loss – By scraping the belt thoroughly on the head pulley, the belt cleaner eliminates carry back problems and keeps the bulk material moving in the right direction through the transfer point or into the Hopper.

Conveyor Belt Sysytem life becomes longer

More durable conveyor equipment – Materials that carry back under the belt often end up in the conveyor system and can damage rollers and idlers while causing the belt to wander and fray.

BELT CLEANER SO Energy Efficient

Lower energy costs – When the material attaches to the belt on the head pulley, the addition of material weight attached to the belt makes the equipment work harder so that it uses more energy.

Safer work environment – When Carry-back material accumulates under the Belt. Workers can easily slip and fall while trying to walk through the chaos.

Add to that, dust that you can't control can cause health problems while breathing and can ignite fires causing deadly explosions.

Reduced dust problem – Fugitive dust is often a byproduct of material falling from under the belt on the way home.

How to Install Belt Cleaner

The way of installing cleaner is very simple. Generally the built-in conveyor system engineer has prepared the cleaner position. Sometimes it takes a little modification to chute or hopper.

The Cleaner Installation Guide will help you understand the operation of the product. As well as being able to help make it function properly maximum efficiency during life.

It is essential for safe and efficient operation so that the information and guidelines in the manual book properly understand and apply. The Manual Book will provide safety precautions, installation instructions, maintenance procedures and troubleshooting tips.

The simple, replaceable blade, made of Carbide or urethane, provides a tough yet gentle solution to the challenge of belt cleaning.

The blade segment of the cleaner corresponds to a wear-out or damaged belt, while the spring tensioner tensioner ensures consistent blade-to-belt interaction and constant pressure on the belt.

Problems that arise in the use of Belt Cleaner System

So far blm no problems that arise with the installation of belt cleaning During the selection is suitable with the application. What needs to be considered is the connection of the belt and the condition of the repair belt do not pass through the height of the belt.

However, problems will arise when you do not use Belt Cleaning. other problems and some costs that you like to spend. Like:


  • Losses due to loss of material because not all materials that fall can return to the conveyor.
  • Regular cleanup wage spending.
  • Losses arising from the initial damage to the return roller due to the abrasion effect of the carry back.
  • The cost of belt damage due to mistracking due to thickening of the material on the return roller.
  • Potential work accidents due to work areas covered in accumulated carryback materials.
  • Operator / maintenance technician is difficult to monitor conveyor condition. Because access is closed and down the spirit of the janitor because of carryback problems will happe
    n again. and many other problems stemming from the problems we have previously addressed.
