Flexco recently released the newest cleaner in its line of belt conveyor products, the MXP Extreme Duty Precleaner.
Available for use with belts ranging from 42in to 120in (1,050mm to 3,000mm) wide, pulley diameters 48in (1,200mm) and up, and belt speeds up to 2,000fpm (10m/sec), the MXP is the largest, most rugged cleaner in the Flexco offering.
The new MXP is ideal for use in copper, coal, iron oil, and oil sands applications, and is designed for easy installation. Designed with heavy-duty construction throughout, the MXP boasts an oversized 8in (200mm) diameter center pole and 19-3/8in (490mm) blade height, ensuring optimal cleaning on large pulleys and wide belts.
"One of the big advantages to the MXP Extreme Duty Precleaner is that it is designed with a three-piece pole, making it easier to transport to the head pulley and install," said Kevin Fales, product manager at Flexco. "Instead of trying to lift one large pole into place, the cleaner can be placed in sections and assembled on site."
The MXP is available with 6in and 12in (150mm and 300mm) wide blade segments for varied material paths and easy replacement.
The spring tensioner on the MXP makes the cleaner compatible with mechanical splices, allowing the blade to move away from the belt when a splice passes.
The MXP Extreme Duty Precleaner is a Mineline® endorsed cleaner designed and engineered to work day in and day out in some of the toughest applications in the world.
