QB1™ Cleaner HD

The Martin® QB1™ Cleaner HD is a patented new evolution in belt cleaner technology designed to help your operation achieve a higher level of productivity while simultaneously reducing costs! It is guaranteed to provide you with the highest performance and the lowest cost of ownership of any urethane precleaner.

  • Manufactured with Martin’s unique Constant Angle Radial Pressure (CARP) technology, its curved blade simply cleans the belt better, minimizing carryback
  • Martin’s new patented blade design maintains consistent contact with the belt and constant belt cleaning pressure as it wears, so its effective cleaning performances lasts longer
  • Martin re-engineered the manufacturing process, streamlining it to be faster and more efficient, which means your cost to purchase is lower
  • The overall cost of maintenance is much less because the blades last longer 
  • Manufactured with the strongest mainframe in the industry
  • Martin will install your new QB1™ mainframe free of charge to replace any existing Primary Belt Cleaner manufactured anywhere in the world

Martin® QB1™ Cleaners are ideally suited for situations where price-sensitivity is a significant concern. The cleaners definitely get the job done and help immediately add to the bottom line, making them perfectly suited for use in coal-fired power plants, quarries, batch plants, etc. Ask us about the results other companies around the world are seeing, such as this coal-fired power plant in India.

New Belt Cleaner Saves 24 Hours Per Week In Cleanup Time
An aggregate facility handles 1.5 million tons of limestone per year. After experiencing excessive carryback on their existing conveyors, they wanted to make sure to address the issue when adding a new conveyor. The plant spent 16 to 24 hours per week cleaning up. There was also excessive damage to the conveyors.
