- Powder Coated Shaft
- Standard 6" wide and optional one piece blades are designed to maintain proper contact with the cleaning surface
- Standard 6" wide blades are removable with 2 bolts per blade for easy replacement or rotation for longer life

The Tech Line Heavy Duty Head Shed Cleaner is available with both Air/Water and Mechanical Tensioners.
Air/Water Tensioners (CSHSHD-STD-A)
- Dual activator tensioning unit functions on plant air, water, or CO2
- Optional air source housed in protective cabinet (Closed system provides long life to air tank)
- Designed to provide constant tension to the cleaner
- Suited for difficult to access locations
- Simple valve operation allows tension to be released quickly to speed up blade changes and maintenance
- Water regulators are provided with pressure relief valve to prevent over pressurizing. Commonly used in underground applications where service water is available and freezing is not an issue.
- Plant air regulator systems are used in above ground applications and where freezing is an issue
- Optional CO2 regulator systems are used in remote and mobile applications such as stacking conveyors, and remote overland discharges where plant air is not readily available.
Mechanical Tensioners (CSHSHDST-01-A)
- Designed to provide adjustable tension to the cleaner
- Suited to locations that are not difficult to access
- Requires tension to be monitored and adjusted as the blade wears
- Lower cost system but requires more maintenance attention during its life
- No risk of losing cleaning ability because of a failed air or water supply
The Tech Line Heavy Duty Head Shed Cleaner comes with a standard 6" wide blade and an optional one piece blade that are designed to maintain proper contact with the cleaning surface.
Heavy Duty Head Shed Single 6" Blade (FDHSHD-S-01)
- Standard offering
- Allows the cleaner to wear to the belt as needed
- Better contour to a crowned pulley
- Allows center blades to wear independent of the outer/end blades
- Proprietary wear resistant urethane
- Can be varied to suit special applications
Heavy Duty Head Shed Solid Blade (FDHSHD-SB-XX)
XX Denotes Blade Length
- Use where material build-up between blades is a concern
- Can be used in multi-primary systems
- Proprietary wear resistant urethane
As blade wear occurs, the contact point between the blader tip and the pulley remains the same to eliminate the chance of the Heavy Duty Head Shed Cleaner flipping under.
