Classification of Applications for Bulk Material Conveyor Belt Cleaning
Published Date: April 2013
Note: May 15, 2014 - CEMA added 'CEMA 550 Material Classification Code Chart' as an Appendix for reference. We added this information Material Description from CEMA 550 for the two materials used as examples.
Conveyor belt cleaners are used to remove fugitive material, otherwise known as carryback, from the return side of the conveyor belt after the bulk material has been discharged.
This standard has been established to provide a uniform method for determining the application class of any individual belt conveyor. This application class will assist in the selection of an appropriate conveyor belt cleaner or conveyor belt cleaner system for the application.
By ranking the application, guidance concerning the needed ruggedness and durability of the applicable conveyor belt cleaner will be available. Manufacturers voluntarily specify into which class their particular designs fall.
