Following the announcement that a new CEMA standard for belt cleaners had been developed, Flexco updated its Belt Conveyor Product (BCP) Overview Guide with ratings on all of its heavy-duty belt cleaners. In doing so, Flexco is the first manufacturer to publish ratings for their full line of cleaners.
The new CEMA standards were developed to assist end-users with belt cleaner selection so they can choose the correct cleaner for their application.
“You obviously don’t want to under-specify your cleaner because you need it to get the job done, but you also don’t want to install a cleaner that is more than you need from a cost perspective,” said Flexco Chief Engineer Brett DeVries, who was a part of the team who wrote the CEMA standard. “The new standard provides clarity for the person who is specifying or asking for a system. That transparency means you don’t have to become an expert to know what kind of cleaner you need.”
Flexco made the decision to publish ratings for all of their heavy-duty cleaners to provide clarity and guidance to the end-user in accordance to the new industry standard.
“This doesn’t replace the technical guidance provided by Flexco and its distributors,” Ryan Grevenstuk, senior product manager for Flexco, said. “We feel that publishing the ratings will allow our customers to better understand each system when choosing a solution. While this provides additional support in selecting the cleaner, it’s still important or evaluate the unique needs of your conveyor system.”
The BCP Overview Guide features in-depth descriptions of the Flexco line of cleaners, trackers, impact beds and more.
