A belt plough provides protection to capital items within your conveyor system such as pulleys and the conveyor belt by removing any residual product on the return side of the conveyor belt. It is industry standard to install conveyor belt ploughs prior to tail, take-up or drive pulleys.
Our range of Vee ploughs are designed to be used in single direction conveyor belst and are available in either floating or torsion models. The vee design diverts all residual material on the return side of the conveyor belt to both sides of the conveyor.
The Diagonal ploughs are used and positioned on single direction converyors. They remove the residual material on the return side of the belt to a single side of the conveyor. This can be advantageous for cleaning and maintenance where access is poor to one side of the conveyor. The diagonal plough is available with either screw or spring tensioning.
The Reversing ploughs are designed for use on reversing conveyors. The residual material on the return side of the belt is removed to a single side of the conveyor. The reversing plough is available with either screw or sprint tensioning.
Our ploughs are manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel (316 available upon request).
