QC1™ Cleaner HD STS™

The Martin® QC1™ Cleaner HD STS™ tackles the tough jobs. Designed for rugged conditions, this sturdy cleaner’s stainless steel mandrel allows the blade cartridge to be serviced without confined space entry or breaking the safety plane. Changing the blade is a simple one-pin operation, making replacement of a worn blade a safe and simple procedure.

Features and Benefits:

  • The blade can be replaced from outside the chute wall or the conveyor structure without breaking the safety plane
  • One-pin blade replacement makes blade replacement a fast and easy operation
  • Martin® QC1™ Cleaner HD STS™ and Martin® Tensioner HD STS™ are system-engineered to preserve the cleaning edge from high belt speeds and multiple splices
  • Patented “CARP” (Constant Angle Radial Pressure) design maintains cleaning performance through all stages of blade life
  • Mainframe of rugged 3/8-in. (9.5-mm) thick DOM steel tubing has steel bar backbone. Aluminum extrusion in blade base holds cleaner snugly to backbone
  • Martin Engineering’s urethane expertise provides blades to suit standard, high-temperature or high-abrasion conditions
  • Economical pre-cleaner and tensioner system combines effective cleaning, durable life and low-maintenance requirements


  • Available with either a Martin® Spring Tensioner HD STS™ or a Martin® Air Tensioner HD STS™ to maintain proper cleaning pressure while minimizing the need for adjustment

QC1™ Cleaner HD STS Clears Belt of Adhered Carryback for Metal Recycler
A recycler of residuals from the production of iron and steel was experiencing extreme carryback on a main material transport belt, which was causing unsustainable plant pollution. An existing cleaner made from a horizontal metal plate tilted slightly to face the discharge chute did not adequately remove dust and fines from the cracks and divots in the belt.
