The Y-Type improves the cleaning of the belt, reducing routine maintenance. Flexco offers this flexible solution for both normal and heavy usage, so it is available with a maximum belt speed of between 3 and 3.8 m/sec. A spring tensioner maintains a constant blade pressure on the belt at all times, providing a high degree of fine cleaning – and the pressure of the tensioner also ensures that the 75-mm-wide blade segments adapt to worn and damaged belts too.
The pole has a diameter of 60 mm for standard loads and 72 mm for heavy-duty loads. Depending on usage, the Y-Type is suitable for belt widths of 450 to 1200 mm (normal loads) and 900 to 1800 mm for heavy-duty loads. It can be used at temperatures from -35° to 82 °C. Clearly visible wear marks indicate when the segments have to be replaced. The service technician can then either remove and replace the segments individually, or replace the entire cartridge.
