Conveyor belt secondary cleaners

Conveyor belt secondary cleaners

The right cleaner lasts longer

Secondary cleaners are used to remove fines from a conveyor belt. Many conveyor belts can be satisfactorily cleaned with a primary and a secondary cleaner, but in some applications an even higer efficiency is achieved by utilizing additional secondary cleaners.
How to reduce belt wear, prevent component failure and avoid carryback?
An e-book presenting the main tips for avoiding stoppages and failures.

Selecting an optimal secondary cleaner

In the majority of cases, the secondary belt cleaner is positioned immediately after the head pulley with the purpose of removing the remaining fines left on the belt.

We recommend that a combination of primary and secondary belt cleaners be used.

Metso supplies different sizes of conveyor systems depending on the volume of material to be conveyed. Belt speed, belt size and pulley diameter all vary.

We do not classify our solutions according to industry segments, but rather according to the application within the segment. That’s because we’ve noticed 70% - 80% of conveyors used in mining are at the smaller end of the scale, even though this is where you also find some of the biggest conveyors. In other words, the application counts more than the industry.

Secondary cleaners - Selection quide

  1. Different secondary cleaner models are presented in the image on the left. Every cleaner is numbered and the number is the same as used in the table below. 
  2. Find the belt speed and width, and select the cleaner model that fits your requirements in the table below.
  3. If you end up with more than one option, refine your search by checking the material and application that is also presented in the table.
  4. If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your Metso representative

If the application temperature is above 70°C or below -30°C, the type of the belt spice is not vulcanised, or the belt is reversing instead of one-way, please contact your Metso representative.

Please note that you can contact us by using "Mining" and "Aggregates" contact forms on this page even though your application would be in a different industry.

Trellex ABC-Easy properties and features
Trellex ABC-Easy properties and features

Trellex ABC-Easy is a multipurpose secondary belt cleaner suitable for a variety of light-duty applications.

Material properties

A sandwich construction of polyethylene and rubber - both hardwearing materials – gives the product a long service life. In addition, the polyethylene’s low friction reduces the risk of material build-up.

Special features

The ABC-Easy can also be used as a V-plough/diagonal plough.

Trellex ABC-MC-LT features
Trellex ABC-MC-LT features

Trellex ABC-MC-LT is simple and robust secondary cleaner. It is suitable for all Metso's mobile crushers, such as Lokotrack® equipment, as well as many mobile crushers manufactured by other companies.

Material properties

The hard polyurethane material (PU 95) gives excellent rigidity and balanced performance .

Special features

Thanks to two cleaning zones, this product offers double the usual service life. When one zone is worn out, you can use the other, simply by turning the cleaner round.

If your mobile crusher has a simple plank-type cleaner, this product provides an economical solution for improving performance. Since it is a Lokotrack replacement part, availability is guaranteed.

Trellex ABC-BRUSH secondary cleaner's properties and features

Trellex ABC-BRUSH is ideal for cleaning cleated belts, helping maintain a clean surface without damaging the belt’s profile. It is also a good complement to cleaners on standard smooth belts where fine, dry materials are being conveyed.

Material properties

Our brushes are made of high-quality, hardwearing nylon. We also offer brushes made with a combination of nylon and steel for use in the glass recycling industry. A central core of lightweight plastic (polypropylene) makes installation and section replacements easy.

Special features

The brush tube consists of 150 mm long modules. This saves on replacement parts, as well as giving complete size flexibility and guaranteeing availability. For a larger belt, just add more sections. The belt brush is driven by a fully encapsulated drum motor. This is not only a space-efficient alternative to an external motor but also
highly reliable since no dust or dirt can enter and interfere with its mechanical moving parts.

Trellex ABC-T-HS RU features
Trellex ABC-T-HS RU features

Trellex ABC-T-HS RU secondary cleaner is suitable for less abrasive material applications such as pulp and paper, and wood handling.

Material properties

A hardened steel blade makes this cleaner a cost-effective option for handling non-abrasive materials. The blade is moulded into soft rubber so each cleaner section can move flexibly and work independently from
others in the row.

Special features

Trellex ABC-T-HS RU sits at 90 degrees to the belt surface, which dramatically reduces or practically eliminates the risk of damaging the belt. Additionally, if the belt surface is slightly uneven, the soft rubber construction yields naturally to its contours, preventing damage. The cleaner can be installed both inside and outside the chute.

Trellex ABC-T-HMS RU secondary cleaner's properties and features

Trellex ABC-T-HMS RU secondary cleaner is designed especially for abrasive applications in mining operations and aggregates production.

Material properties

Thanks to a super-fine tungsten carbide blade, this cleaner provides the very best performance when handling abrasive materials. It is completely invulnerable to damage from coarse or sharp material, and therefore offers a very long lifetime. The blade is moulded into soft rubber so each cleaner section can move flexibly and work independently from others in the row.

Special features

With a Trellex ABC-T-HMS RU, your conveyor belt is safe. The cleaner sits at 90 degrees to the belt surface, which dramatically reduces – practically eliminates - the risk of damaging the belt. Additionally, if the belt surface is slightly uneven, the soft rubber construction yields naturally to prevent damage, either to the belt or the cleaner itself. The cleaner can be installed both inside and outside the chute.

Trellex ABC-T-HMS PU secondary cleaner's properties and features

Trellex ABC-T-HMS PU secondary cleaner is suitable especially for abrasive applications in mining and aggregates industries.

Material properties

Thanks to a super-fine tungsten carbide blade, this cleaner provides the very best performance when handling abrasive materials. It is completely invulnerable to damage from coarse or sharp material, and therefore offers a very long lifetime.

Special features

The blade is moulded into hard PU, which helps it maintain a precise 90-degree angle to the belt surface. This gives a high degree of efficiency, but please note that it should not be used on a mechanically spliced or heavily worn belt. The cleaner can be installed both inside and outside the chute.
