Allentown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2013 -- Worldwide leader in bulk material handling, ASGCO® “Complete Conveyor Solutions” has developed an industry leading system for removing harmful carry-back material from the conveyor belt. After thorough review and analysis, ASGCO®’s team of engineers determined that installation of patented Skalper® belt cleaners and E-Z Torque™ Tensioning system was the most effective solution for this plant’s troubling maintenance issue.

ASGCO®’s simple, yet highly effective system provided excellent cleaning at the head pulley, and after months of continual use, these Skalper units have provided greatly reduced hours on maintenance, wash downs, and safety issues. In addition, the installation of the ASGCO® Skalper® system has significantly reduced issues addressed by OSHA’s Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP).
