Abstract (en)

A method and apparatus for cleaning a perforated, transport belt 232 has belt surface cleaner mechanisms 301, 302 that include a moveable, consumable web 321. A solvent dispensing mechanism 333, 335, 400 is fluidically coupled to create a wet region of web material upstream (with respect to the belt motion) of a dry region of web material. Mechanisms 311, 319 for selectively engaging and disengaging the belt surface cleaner mechanisms ensure free belt travel during flexible material transport and the cleaning of both surfaces during cleaning cycles. The system includes consumable piece-part elements for refurbishing and remanufacturing. <IMAGE>
