The DIRT WHACKER® Secondary Belt Cleaner

2aa The DIRT WHACKER® Secondary Belt cleaner range is designed to provide the industry with a conveyor belt cleaning solution on the conveyor belt top cover as it returns from the head pulley. The DIRT WHACKER® Secondary Belt cleaner can also serve as a tertiary cleaner.

The DIRT WHACKER® Secondary Blades are developed to provide the industry with a durable blade range. These blades provide an excellent balance for the customer, as they are both durable and belt friendly.

The DIRT WHACKER® Secondary Blade system meets the following design criteria:


The DIRT WHACKER® cleaner uses blade-to-belt pressure of 8-12Kg/cm².
Conventional belt scrapers use a blade-to-belt pressure of 1,1-1,4Kg/cm².
The DIRT WHACKER® uses blunt blades. The blunt blades are applied to the top cover at a higher pressure and as such minimize the abrasive media (carry over) between the belt and the blade. The blade only wears due to the polishing of the hard metal by a softer material (rubber).
