WHAT IS IT? The Model BR is a motorized brush style conveyor belt cleaner for use in heavy-duty quarry and mining applications to reduce the carryback of material. The Model BR will work in wet or dry applications, as well as on a variety of organic materials and metal fines. The powered brush turns in the opposite direction of the belt in order to throw the dislodged material back into the discharge stream.
WHY IS IT NECESSARY? The Model BR is a good choice for use as a stand alone belt cleaner, and makes an excellent secondary belt cleaner when used behind one of our bladed primary cleaners in the more aggressive applications.
Model BR Brush Type Belt Cleaner includes:
Brush, motor, shaft, bearings, belt and belt guard, drive mechanism, etc.
