Scraper chip conveyors are designed for transport of fine broken chips, needle chips and short steel chips. It is particularly well suited for aluminium, aluminium alloys and nonferrous metal swarf generated by metal cutting operations. In order to separate the fine particles from coolant, scraper conveyors are fitted with coolant sludge discharge slot filter or combined with the drum filter. Scraper conveyors can be used for transport of loose material. It is not suited for conveying clots of metal chip swarf.
For longer wear life of a conveyor we advise reinforcement of the frame and the belt with HARDOX- hardened wear resistant steel plate.
