Razor-Back® Belt Cleaner Features & Benefits

  • Longwearing Abrasion Resistant Blades – available with replaceable V-Tips for vulcanized conveyor belts or C-Tips or F-Tips for conveyor belts with mechanical fasteners. Also available with Urethane and AR™ 400 blades.
  • Impact Absorbing Tension Cushions – each individual blade to the belt for a controlled and effective belt cleaning across the entire width of the belt.
  • Compact Design – allows for an installation that requires less than 9” of clearance to be installed and maintained.
  • Mechanical Splices? No Problem – The Razor-Back® can be installed on belts with mechanical splices, due to the laid-back wiping blade angle and impact- absorbing tensioning cushions, allowing the mechanical splices to pass without damaging the belt cleaner or the splice.
  • Blade Cartridge – allows for easy change out of scraper blades from either side of the conveyor
  • Available Tensioning Systems – Bolt-Up™, Duo-Spring™, or Spring-Shoc™
  • Available Optional Spray-Bar – Spray nozzle sizes can be customized for any desired spray pattern and water pressure.

Razor-Back® with Spray Bar

Razor-Back® with Spray Bar is a secondary belt cleaner that uses a row of spray nozzles to spray a fine sharp stream of water at a 30° degree angle onto the conveyor belt where the carry-back material is difficult to remove. Water is applied to the belt in an overlapping spray pattern which places the particles into a fluid suspension, while moistening the belt.

The blades of the Razor-Back® with Spray Bar are then able to make consistent contact with the conveyor belt surface to remove nearly 98% or more of bulk material coarse carry-back.
