Frequently Asked Questions
Can I tension the belt cleaners without shutting down the conveyor belt?
It’s always safest to lock out and tag out before conducting any work on a conveyor. However, to ensure the tension is set correctly – it needs to be tested while the conveyor is running to monitor the cleaner’s performance. Keep in mind that this can only be done if the tensioning mechanism is accessible whilst in operation. You should never expose yourself to moving parts or put yourself in harm’s way.
