Starclean Belt Cleaner

Problem solved

"Starclean has been an outstanding success, performing better than all other scrapers we’ve previously tried. Carryback was causing us a lot of time consuming, costly problems and these have now been solved. The scraper looks after itself, we haven’t had to touch it since it was fitted, so it looks like we’ve finally found a long term, low maintenance solution to belt cleaning. We will be standardising on Starclean in future."

♦ The Challenge
A large sand and gravel pit handling 0-5 mm grit was experiencing serious carryback problems caused by an ineffective belt scraper. This led to conveyor belt mistracking, premature component wear, loss of material and significant clean-up costs with attendant safety concerns.
