Scavenger Conveyor System

Martin Engineering introduced the Carryback Capture System, a scavenger conveyor system that transfers belt-cleaning residue back into the material stream, avoiding cleanup labor, injury potential, and dust hazards associated with buildup. The 13-inch-high system’s modular design uses an electrically driven hydraulic cylinder to push a steel cleaning blade — or, in a longer scavenger, a series of blades — across the system’s collecting pan, sliding the "slop and fines" in the trough toward the conveyor discharge. On the return stroke, the plows ride up onto tracks to be pulled back to the starting position, without dragging material in the wrong direction. The cleaning cycle of each unit automatically adjusts to match the belt speed of the main conveyor. (www.martin-eng.com)
