Martin Engineering’s new Pin Latch secondary belt cleaner is a tungsten carbide-tipped belt cleaner that slides in and out for service without requiring any tools. The design features a square, tabbed mainframe with segmented blades connected by a simple pin mechanism, allowing easy access and quick blade replacement by semiskilled personnel.

The pin latch design provides adjustable tension for varying conditions, such as belt speed, material being conveyed and belt cleaner position relative to the head pulley. It will handle belt speeds up to 1,000 ft/min (5.1 m/sec), and accommodates belt rollback. The carbide tip is acid- and abrasion-resistant, and the assembly is suited for use on belts with mechanical splices.
