The Conveyor Belt Cleaning System can be used as either a permanently fixed intergrated unit or a portable mobile unit. This setup usually depends on whether there is a single conveyor belt or multiple conveyor belts that require cleaning. Most commonly portable units are required as many single conveyor belts do not have space for a permanently fixed unit and larger conveyors often have multiple change over points.
Traditionally cleaning of conveyor belts has been regarded as an very laborious task that requires lots of time and physical effort; especially in extreme cases where conveyor need to be dismantled to clean. The Conveyor Belt Cleaning System on the other hand actually enables conveyor belts to be cleaned to a higher and more consistent standard whilst in place and operating; therefore saving hours/days of manual labour time.
In addition to time saving the Conveyor Belt Cleaner also reduces both water and chemical usage. This is possible through the use of continuous 94% superheated dry steam that requires less than 15lt of water per hour. Extra high +180°C steam temperatures produced by Tecnovap steamers also sanitise most surfaces on contact eliminating the need for most chemical disinfectants. The added benefit of vacuum extraction leaves flat conveyors in a mostly dry state and immediately ready for use. This vacuum extraction combined with low water usage also makes the CCSS ideal for use on conveyor belts in areas without built in drainage.
The belt is cleaned much more quickly and consistently, releasing it back to production with the minimum of delay.
Low water usage, typically less than 20 litres / hour, saves on both water costs and effluent disposal.
Vacuum extraction leaves the belt in a dry state. On a smooth belt, for example the belt is dry and ready for use immediately.
The combination of low water requirement and vacuum extraction makes the unit suitable for production facilities without built in drainage.
Use of the unit allows benefits to be made by improved labour utilisation, as well as the advantage of mechanical action giving a consistent and uniform cleaning regime.
