The Role of Conveyor Belt Cleaning Device

The belt conveyor is often used to transport viscous materials, such as coal dust, mud, powder materials and etc.. Some of them will stick on the working surface of belt conveyor, which cannot be removed when discharged the materials. At this time, the adhesive material will then enter the return idler, the roller become dirty as attachment stick on it. Materials enter the roller casing, thereby increasing the radial and thrust load of bearing block, causing rapid wear of bearing. The materials deposit on the roller casing will tear the rubber surface of the belt conveyor, accelerate the wear out failure of belt conveyor. If sticky materials enter the tail bend pulley, it will stick on the surface of roller. The more the viscous materials stick on it, the greater the force of the sticky materials, which will result belt deviation and increase belt wear, leading to serious consequences.

The remaining material on the belt conveyor will increase the friction force on roller, sometimes it may cause the tear on the rubber surface of belt conveyor and also the layer of roller encapsulate. If the cleaning device can function well, it can prolong the service life of the roller, belt conveyor and etc.. This shows that the cleaning device has a significant effect on belt conveyor. In the process of operation, if you want to clean the sticky material on the tail bend pulley through anthropogenic removal, it often prone to serious bodily injury or death. Hence, in order to ensure the normal operation of the belt conveyor, the sticky material must be cleaned up by cleaning device before materials enter into the snub pulley.
