Martin Engineering has announced a new family of replaceable tips to maximize the amount of usable material on each cleaner blade. The replaceable belt cleaner tips have increased wear life in secondary cleaners by as much as 50%, while cutting replacement labor time roughly in half. Because the new tips are pinned in position and require no hammers or other tools to remove and replace, the risk of injury during service is significantly reduced. The replaceable tips delivered 719 hours of run time in primary cleaning applications, an increase of about 5%. Each reusable blade base is good for 10-12 tip change cycles before it must be replaced.
