Typically, the blades of a cleaner do not cover the full width of the belt, because the full width of the belt is not typically used to carry material. Various belt cleaner manufacturers have their own standard or typical blade coverage. Many manufacturers allow for more than the minimum coverage, but rarely does the blade width need to be equal to or greater than the belt width.
For improved cleaning, the carrying width of the material on the belt should be observed or calculated and matched by the cleaner’s width.
