The Flexco R-Type® Secondary Belt Cleaner is recommended for reversing belts and is designed to be positioned just off the head pulley to remove carryback from the belt. The R-Type can be used independently, or in conjunction with a precleaner, to form a highly efficient cleaning system. 
It features two-way cushions that accommodate reversing belts used on shuttle conveyors, conveyors that roll back, or in tripper and stacker applications.
Available with an Enhanced Service Advantage Cartridge for easy blade removal and replacement.
