Problems with conveyor belt carry back
Product spillage is a not only costly but a significant maintenance and safety concern for all bulk material handling plants. Inefficient belt cleaning causes, material build-up on return idlers, pulleys and other components on the conveyor resulting in unwanted fugitive material piles under each return idler for the full length of each conveyor. This means costly man-hours in cleanup and added safety risks for workers (MSHA reports that nearly 50 percent of conveyor related accidents occur during carry-back cleanup). Therefore, the installation of an efficient belt cleaner to control material carry-back is a must in today's high capacity bulk material plants.
