Pioneering Systems

Richwood’s flagship product is the conveyor belt cleaner, with the company trailblazing its new air-activated tension system over 40 years ago. Their proprietary belt cleaning technology offers an even cleaning pressure using full width belt cleaning blades, resulting in cleaner, drier conveyor belt systems.

This pioneering system was easy to set and eliminated the need for constant monitoring and maintenance. The company continues to research and develop new technologies actively, something that keeps Richwood splice friendly belt cleaning products in a class of their own.

Dependable and Complete Solutions

Another Richwood industry first were their impact saddles, which feature a full belt width support design that employ multiple slide on/off segments on a steel frame with shock-absorbing rubber cushioning for uninterrupted belt support with no gaps or pinch points.

Moreover, Richwood’s cushion arc and full arc impact idlers can be installed as a direct replacement for conventional products, or combined with Richwood impact saddles (available in light, regular or heavy duty versions) to create perfectly matched, extended length load zones.
