TBC-3 Belt Cleaner
Jesse J. Heap & Son recommends Flag Cleaning
of Teflon Belts on conveyorized
fusing machines with the Astex TBC-3 Cleaner for
cleaning preventive maintenance.
Jesse J. Heap & Son offers
four types of Temperature Strips to be used for the
belt temperature calibration and testing of fusing
High Temperature Teflon Coated fiber
is available for fusing and laminating
machines. Various widths, lengths and thicknesses are available.
High Temperature Nomex Blankets
Transfer, Laminating and pleating machines are also available.
Hand-held infrared “guns” are frequently used to measure heat in fusing machines. Usually these guns are aimed at the bottom or top conveyor belt as it comes out the exit end of the heat chamber. The back cover is often up and the instrument placed about 12” from the belt surface to measure any temperature differences across the width of the belt surface. This method is quick and easy, but is it accurate?
Today, it is important that all owners of conveyorized fusing machines be familiar with the Flag Cleaning method of cleaning fusing machine belts. We suggest terry cloth or corduroy as a suitable material for making a flag but any material with a nap will do. The flag is placed in the machine during production breaks. The resulting cleaning takes place within the heat zone- where the resin is softest and the process is virtually labor and cost free.
