The Alfco Rope Scraper Components:

Control Panel:

• Can be easily programmed using our user-friendly keypad.
• Works manually or can be set to come on automatically at present intervals.
• If it detects an animal lying on the passage it will reverse and stop. It will then go forward again after 1 min.
• If it detects an animal again it will reverse and shut down until it is manually restarted
• Three power settings (1. For Motor start up, 2. Normal running power, 3. Cow down protection)
• By using the invertor, we have maximum control over our scrapers. This allows the motor 30 seconds to reach its maximum speed on start-up resulting in reduced wear on the gearbox and rope.


Corner Pullies:

• Pulley Housing, made from 6mm galvanised steel.
• Can be floor or wall mounted.
• Pulley made from acetal.
• Rotates on a stainless-steel pin.
• No need to grease and will have very little wear


Drive Winches:

• Made from heavy gauge hot dipped galvanised steel.
• Can be floor or wall mounted.
• Water proof sensors placed in the drum are used to control speed and parking
• Scraper runs at a constant speed of four meters a minute but slows down as it approaches the slatted tank allowing more time for the slurry to flow away.
• The sensors detect a marker placed in the rope for accurate parking.
• This is backed up with a counter that counts the number of revolutions on the winch drum.
• Programmed to gradually slow down when parking at the end of the cleaning cycle resulting in no catapult action to injure or frighten animals.
• Three motor and gearbox options depending on length of passages


• 12 mm dynema rope.
• Minimum breaking load 16.4 Tons.
• No stretch characteristics.
• Extremely flexible and lightweight.
• Animal friendly


Scraper Blade:

• Robust all galvanised construction and animal friendly design.
• Blade constructed from 12mm steel with 20mm heels for long life.
• Floating blades give excellent cleaning and first class hygiene results.
• Rope can be easily attached and adjusted.
