Brelko Conveyor Products is a local manufacturer of belt cleaning equipment, with a global reach through branches, distributors and agents in more than 40 countries.
Established in 1987, Brelko supplies and advises the bulk materials handling industry on spillage control. The company also offers proactive and ongoing maintenance for preventative spillage control and optimum belt cleaning.
Brelko’s equipment is manufactured at its in-house facility, in Johannesburg, and backed up by an installation and maintenance package serviced by 37 service teams.
The company has branches in the UK and the US, master distribu- tors in Australia, Chile and Greece, and agents located in more than 40 countries.
The Brelko product range includes:
• Belt scrapers: A complete range of primary and secondary scrapers, V and Angle ploughs. Scrapers feature the patented ‘V’ double arm blade and torsion holder mounting. The system is designed for stability and makes maintenance and blade changing quick and simple.
• Keyskirt chute sealing and belt support systems: The patented chute sealing system is designed to provide optimum containment of large lumpy material and is especially effective when used in conjunction with the Brelko feedboots belt support system, which is designed to be used at load points to support the conveyor belt, preventing belt sag between idler rolls and, thereby, ensuring maximum skirt sealing and spillage control. Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene material is used to line the load surfaces and, thereby reduces friction and wear. The system is available in four sizes, each designed for a specific range of applications.
• Belt tracking systems: Brelko belt tracking systems can be installed on the troughing and return side of the belt to quickly and effectively centralise misaligned belts, prevent belt edge damage, structural damage and spillage.
• Computer-aided design, or CAD, drawings: A complete range of product drawings are available in two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) format. File formats are DWG or DXF for 2D drawings and SAT for 3D models. It significantly reduces design time by direct insertion into existing designs. All product drawings are available on Brelko’s product CD or on request.
