Standard Equipment
Heavy Duty Brushes
Model RMD S-VECO belt brush is a
three-banded, B section, Uni-V Belt filled
with long wearing nylon, or aggressive
stainless steel brush materials. This medium
duty brush has a single row of brushmaterial
in each band, providing approximately a 2-
1/2” wide brush face with a standard 3-1/2”
long trim. Other trim lengths and materials
are available to meet your needs.
Brush Tensioning Device
A manually operated screw and slide
assembly to which the brush sheave is
mounted, provides the means for tension-
ing or relaxing the brush.
See figure 1.1 item .
Contour Idler Sheaves
Full brush contact and stability are achieved,
even on irregular surfaces, through the
proper positioning of the contour idlers.
Idlers can be adjusted up or down to force
the brush to conform to the surface being
brushed, insuring proper cleaning and
chatter free high speed brushing.
See figure 1.3 item .
Height Adjustment Device
The amount of brush pressure being
applied against the surface being cleaned
is of utmost importance. This pressure is
controlled through the use of the Height
Adjustment Device Elevating Screws. On
standard models the elevating screws
are manually operated. Other height
adjustment devices are available.
See figure 1.2 item .
NOTE:
The working part of a brush
is the tip of the bristle. Exaggerated
bristle deflection caused by excessive
pressure will result in premature wear
and failure. The only exception to this is the
use of an abrasive impregnated brush fiber.
Power Source
RMD units are powered with various
horsepower. A highly efficient 1725
RPM, TEFC, 3/60Hz, 208-220/440V elec-
tric motor is mounted directly to a sealed
gear box. These two units are mounted
directly in line with the driven brush sheave,
forming a direct drive.
See figure 1.1 item .
Welded Aluminum Frame
RMD units are assembled on light weight
extruded aluminum frames. Units are man-
ufactured with an effective brushing range
of up to 8 feet.
