Retractable Razor-Back® System with Split Block Spring-Shoc™

Mechanical Splices? No Problem. The Retractable Razor-Back® System with Split Block Spring-Shoc™ Tensioner can be installed on conveyor belts with mechanical splices, due to the passive wiping blade angle and impact-absorbing tensioning cushions, allowing the mechanical splices to pass without damaging the belt cleaner or the splice.

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.
