Flexco expand Service Advantage Cartridge line

Company enhances and extends belt cleaner maintenance and installation options 

FLEXCO, the Illinois-based belt conveyor equipment specialists, have simplified installation and maintenance of the Service Advantage Cartridge for their Mineline MHS heavy-duty secondary cleaner and added the feature to their P-Type secondary cleaner and R-Type reversing secondary cleaner.

The Service Advantage Cartridge is designed to limit downtime and allow easy maintenance of the cleaners to ensure continuing superior performance. The enhanced design now features a variety of options for locking the cartridge into place, making it adaptable based on local codes and offering solutions for varying space constraints during installation.

The Service Advantage Cartridge slides out from the accessible side of the conveyor or chute wall for inspection, service or replacement by a single worker in a matter of minutes.

‘The enhancements made to the Service Advantage Cartridge allow flexibility for maintenance and installation options, making it even easier to service and inspect the cleaner,’ explained Ryan Grevenstuk, product manager for Flexco. ‘Adding this feature to our P-Type and R-Type cleaners provides an economical, yet service-friendly solution as well.’

Blade cartridges can be removed in minutes and can be changed without having to remove the complete assembly pole or brackets from the conveyor. Instead, changing the cleaner blades is done by simply removing a pin, sliding the blade cartridge out through the side, and replacing it with a new or rebuilt cartridge.

This allows maintenance workers to replace multiple blade cartridges during a single maintenance period, saving time and money. The cartridges can also be easily rebuilt on site.

Additionally, the side slide-out design is safer for workers because it does not require them to access tight spaces to remove the cartridge. A dual-cartridge design that splits in the middle for removal from both sides is also available for belt widths of 60in up to 120in. For further information visit:
