An Arizona copper mine was experiencing excessive spillage from their conveyor belts feeding materials to the crushing facility. The carryback was so excessive they had to clean the area once per shift.
Martin recommended a new cleaning system which included the Martin® QC1™ XHD Cleaner with SQC2S™ Cleaner. The QC1™ XHD Cleaner is engineered to preserve the cleaning edge from high belt speeds and multiple splices and provides durable performance in challenging applications. The patented “CARP" (Constant Angle Radial Pressure) design helps the blade maintain cleaning performance throughout the blade’s life. The rugged steel mainframe holds the cleaner snugly to the backbone. Martin used a brown blade to improve the resistance to chemicals used in copper leaching.
The Martin® SQC2S™ Secondary Cleaner incorporates individually-cushioned tungsten carbide blades to effectively clean the belt without risk to the belt, splice or blade. Blade replacement is simple and the design allows for installation in close quarters.
The customer is now saving $22,000 per week and the cleaning requirements have changed drastically. “We are cleaning the area once every 4-5 days now. The scraper system is very simple to install and maintain. The system pays for itself every day we run. I’m working on installing more of them in other parts of the plant.”
