Keep the pressure on with this rugged yet simple belt cleaner tensioning device from Martin Engineering.
The MARTIN® TWIST™ Tensioner supplies consistent pressure to keep blades against the belt for effective cleaning, regardless of the state of blade wear.
The MARTIN® TWIST™ Tensioner uses the force stored in a twisted rubber sleeve to provide the steady pressure that allows even, effective cleaning. This tensioner can be used on either a pre-cleaner or secondary cleaner from Martin Engineering's DURT HAWG®, DURT TRACKER®, or QC® #1 Belt Cleaner families.

  • Self-Relieving
    If cleaner blades are "pulled through" the tensioner's internal self-relieving coupling rolls over. This releases the pressure on the rubber tensioning sleeve, without exposing personnel or equip ment to the risk of injury from a rotating external hub.
  • Easy to Tension
    Merely turn the tensioning gear until you feel the resistance of the blades against the belt. Then turn the gear the additional number of notches indicated on the label (as determined by the width of the conveyor belt).
  • Absorbs Splice Shock
    Rubber bushings cushion splice impact and minimize damage to belt, splice, and cleaning edge.
  • Low Maintenance
    The tensioner maintains consistent blade-to-belt pressure. The set-resistance 60 A Durometer natural rubber sleeve overcomes the need for periodic retensioning necessary to compensate for pressure loss or worn blades.
  • Guaranteed
    Like all MARTIN® Products, the MARTIN® TWIST™ Tensioner is covered by Martin Engineering's Absolutely, Positively, No Excuses, Guarantee.
