The MATO MCP1 Belt Cleaning Unit is an aggressive head drum cleaner consisting of a multiple blade section, in line, mounted just under the Tangential centre line of the head pulley, to remove the bulk of the carryback material to return to the main flow of product being conveyed. The MCP1 cleaner is mounted underneath the head drum to ensure no material build-up occurs on the cleaner unit, and to eliminate the risk of damage from the cleaner to the belt.

Each blade is individually mounted with a rubber-tensioning cushion to ensure even blade pressure across the face of the head drum. Tungsten carbide blades are used for fully Vulcanised Belts and Polyurethane Blades are used for mechanically fastened belts.

Tungsten Carbide Blades: MATO offers different grades of Tungsten Carbide to suit each application. E.g. Tungsten Impact where used with aggressive products or belts, Tungsten long life for high-speed, abrasive, applications (not for use with mechanical fasteners).
