Flexco introduce new limited space conveyor precleaner
Flexco recently added the Rockline EZP-LS limited space precleaner to their range of conveyor belt cleaners. A compact version of Flexco’s current offering of precleaners, the low-profile design of the Rockline EZP-LS boasts the same quality, material path options, and visual tension check as the rest of the line. The EZP-LS also features an industry-exclusive visual blade wear gauge built into the tensioner, making it easy to check both tension and wear.
The Rockline EZP-LS is suitable for limited space applications, including brick and block plants, road/mobile equipment, sand and gravel, and any other applications with severe space limitations and pulleys as small as 152mm.
The EZP-LS features the same user-friendly and performance features of the standard EZP1, with a compact design. The 115mm high EZP-LS blade has the same faceted ConShear blade profile, allowing the blade to renew its cleaning edge as it wears. The blade can easily be serviced with the one-pin blade replacement feature.
The EZP-LS also features the Material Path Option, which Flexco developed to reduce the differential blade wear in the centre of the urethane blades. This option allows users to select the blade size that covers the belt’s material path only, reducing the ‘smile effect’ wear pattern. Utilizing a blade that covers only the material path boosts cleaning performance and extends the life of the blade.
Like the EZP1, the compact LST tensioner on the Rockline EZP-LS is self-contained and simple to adjust, making it easier to set the precleaner to the desired tension and extending blade life. The EZP-LS, however, also contains a visual blade wear gauge.
Belt maintenance and cleaning, along with the use of quality replacement parts, increases performance, extends the life of belt and conveyor components, and reduces downtime.
