Skalper® Belt Cleaner Features & Benefits

  • Excellent Performance – of our patented Skalper® Blade design
    maintains an effective cleaning edge throughout the life of the blade
    with its unique horizontal sipes/wear-grooves across the entire width
    of the blade cleaning edge and by the use of the arc-shaped back
    side of the blade to ensure a sharp cleaning edge.
  • E-Z Torque® Tensioner – (lifetime warranty) patented – made
    of all 304 stainless steel mounting plates, collars and springs allows the
    blades to self adjust throughout the entire life of the blade and is the
    most robust and accurate belt cleaner tensioner in the industry.
    Blade-Wear Indicator – allows to monitor blade wear easily without
    having to shut the system down for inspection.
  • Torque Spring – provides a greater degree of tensioning per inch
    of blade, verses compression springs which require more tensioning
    adjustment for the life of the blade.
  • Rubber Corrugated Dust Covers and UHMW Bushings
    ensures no build-up in the spring tensioning area and provides
    smooth non-binding tensioning.
  • Quick-Change Blade – stainless steel pin blade change-out system
    uses no-tools.
