Dirty belts can cause many problems - short belt life, damage to other machine components, decreased production, and even production quality problems. Keeping belts clean can result in many benefits.
However, improper cleaning can actually lead to shorter belt life, and even be dangerous. For example, using the wrong solvent may permanently damage certain belt covers, rendering the belt unusable. This overview explains the proper methods and materials, to ensure that companies using conveyor belts get the most for their money.
