Your Issue: Carryback

Carryback adheres on the belt, which causes serious material accumulation, residue build-up return rollers and belt mistracking. In addition, belt mistracking or belt-edge damage results in unscheduled downtime.

Solution: Disc return idler, conveyor belt cleaner

Issue: Carryback (material accumulation)


The material accumulation issue caused by material buildup in moist/sticky applications; plus, if the belt cleaner isn't installed, the situation will be worse. As a result of that, material accumulation and idler premature failures can lead to belt damage, belt displacement, and energy consumption.


Solution: Disc return idler

Case study.1: Before ---> After


Case study.2: Before ---> After


Due to the discs installed onto the steel roller, side by side, disc designed with self-cleaning prevents buildup on roller on return side of belt. As a consequence, the material does not adhere any more to the roller's surface; meanwhile discs protect the belt edges in cases of belt displacement. Discs are standard with rubber discs, PU discs, or ceramic discs. 

 Jimway's disc return idlers: 

 Lower operating costs 

 Less material waste 

 More productivity 

Jimway's customers are happy with our disc return idler, which improve efficiency be providing the following benefits:

3X Longer Service Life of Steel Roller

Disc return idler, which is self-clean roller, is suitable for conveying sticky, abrasive, or corrosive material.

Longer Lasting Conveyor Belt Components

Our disc return idler is stable in wide temperature range, extending the roller service life and has wet/sticky material shedding characteristic to prevent belt displacement (extend the belt service life).

Increased Productivity (Less Material Loss)

Preventing material buildup on the roller surface via less contact area with the belt and eliminating carryback to minimized maintenance cost, cleanup fee, and lower labor costs. Plus, keeping bulk material moving in the right direction through belt load zone can minimize material loss.

Lower Energy Costs

Without material accumulation, the less energy is required to get the roller moving, which keep the belt conveyor operating smoothly.

Safer Working Environment

Safer conveyor systems prevent operators fall down through material accumulation.


Jimway's specialty disc return idlers include

Disc return idler with rubber discs

1. With anti-wear and high-elastic rubber discs.

2. Removing the fine grain or powdery material adhered to the belt surface and thereby preventing the belt displacement.

3. Suitable for conveying sticky/corrosive material.
Disc return idler with PU discs

1. With better wear-resistant PU discs.

2. Suitable for conveying high sticky/high abrasive material.

Disc return idler with ceramic discs

1. With PU discs and ceramic discs.

2. Suitable for conveying high abrasive, high sticky, high corrosive material, such as sinter, coke, salt, limestone, furnace slag, and water quenching slag, etc. 

Issue: Carryback (material accumulation)



Result: Premature failure of rollers / belt vibration




Some operators are comfortable with their belts, no matter how many residue sticks. Consequences of carryback are much more than you imagine that residue accumulates on rollers causes belt vibration and premature failure of rollers. It's necessary to be assigned for regular cleanup; otherwise, the roller may be literally stuck by carryback.

Solution: Conveyor belt cleaner


Carryback is a major problem in most plants that is solved by our specialty belt cleaners, which work with all belt sizes/speeds, regardless of industry or type of material. Our belt cleaner scrapers include food-grade, high-temperature, corrosion-resistant, and high-abrasion resistant, all engineered for challenging conditions and unusual materials.

 Jimway's conveyor belt cleaner: 

 Clean better 

 Productivity more 

 More cost-effective 

High performance conveyor belt cleaner with adjustor maintain correct scraper to belt contact pressure; in addition, Jimway's customers are satisfied with our conveyor belt cleaners, which improve efficiency by providing the following benefits:

Safer Working Environment

Safer working environment prevents operators fall down through material accumulations. Plus, conveyor belt scrapers clean the residue to aim to minimize or prevent airborne dust into the body.

Longer Lasting Conveyor Belt Components

We guarantee our conveyor belt scraper's excellent clean performance to prevent material buildup on belt inside and then cause premature failure of rollers, pulleys, and belts.

Increased Productivity (Less Material Loss)

Eliminating carryback reduces maintenance cost, cleanup fee, and low labor costs. Plus, keeping bulk material moving in the right direction through belt load zone can minimize material loss.

Lower Energy Costs

When the belt without residue, material accumulation on the roller could be prevented and the belt operates smoothly.
