The new QC#1 MT Pre-Cleaner from Martin Engineering is a high-quality cleaning blade for use on vulcanized conveyor belts. It features a special polyurethane blend and tungsten carbide tip to deliver service life two to three times longer than conventional urethane blades, the company claims. Designed to provide excellent cleaning performance without any break-in period, the pre-cleaner maintains consistent tension without frequent adjustment, requiring re-tensioning just twice a year in most applications.

The new pre-cleaner was developed specifically for vulcanized belts with no mechanical splices and can be used at belt speeds up to 900 feet per minute. The heavy-duty blade is well suited for wet, sticky material applications, and there is no limitation to the type of material on which it can be used. Utilizing both spring and twist tensioners, the QC#1 MT fits both one- and three-piece mainframes. (http://www.martin-eng.com)
