Martin Engineering Improves Blade Design for MARTIN® QC(TM) No.1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner


August 16, 2006--(NEPONSET, IL) To improve cleaning performance throughout blade life, Martin Engineering has improved the design of the urethane blade used with the MARTIN® QC(TM) #1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner with a new "beefier" profile.

The new design for the MARTIN® QC(TM) #1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner Blade also provides a more aggressive angle against the belt to improve cleaning performance.

The sturdy new blade design is more rigid so it resists blade-against-belt cleaning pressures more than twice as efficiently. The new design features an increase of more than 25% in wearable urethane, to extend wear life.

The "beefy" new blade design still features Martin Engineering's patented "CARP" Constant Angle/Constant Area Radial Pressure" blade design, which maintains cleaning performance across all stages of blade life.

The new blades will fit on existing MARTIN® QC(TM) #1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner installations without requiring modification.

The MARTIN® QC(TM) #1 Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaner features one-pin blade maintenance, allowing a worn blade to be replaced by removing a single pin.
