The biggest marine sand & gravel wharf in UK, and third largest in Europe, handles around 2 million tonnes of material every year. Thirty conveyor belts keep up to 12,000 tonnes of sand & gravel flowing 24 hours a day. Site staff face a huge challenge keeping conveyor belts operating efficiently and safely. Traditional belt scrapers were failing to cope with such abrasive and varied material conveyed at up to 750t/h. Based on success within the company’s concrete division, it was decided to test Starclean.
Phased rollout of Starclean type 53sn secondary belt cleaners
Optimum blade pressure maintained over long term across full belt width
User friendly, quick release ratchet tensioning system
Excellent carryback removal, very little maintenance
