Parts and Accessories :: Determining Correct Scraper Blades

All Spaceman USA machines utilize Scraper Blades to produce soft-serve or frozen beverage product.  These scraper blades attach to the beater / auger inside the freezing cylinder.  Spaceman USA scraper blades are sometimes referred to as flex-blade style, which means that there are no springs or other mechanisms required for operation, the blades flex open when the beater turns, allowing the blade to scrape frozen product off the cylinder walls.

Prior to 2020, Spaceman USA scraper blades came as a 2-pieces: the wearable plastic blade and a metal clip that strengthened the blade for operation.  We refer to these blades as Version 1 (V1).  In 2020, all models began transitioning to a single-piece scraper blade that eliminates the requirement for the metal clip.  These blades are thicker with significant plastic reinforcement.  We refer to these blades as Version 2 (V2).  All machines that have shipped with a V2 beater (auger) will utilize the single-piece blades.

Version 2 Parts

Obsolete V2 Blades
In 2022, Spaceman consolidated three sizes of blades into a new and improved single-length blade that is used on multiple V2 blades.  The 232mm, 245mm, and 200mm blades were all consolidated into a single 243mm blade.  The 243mm blade, part number 3.4.02.01.009.P2, is now available for purchase and is a direct replacement for use in the 6210-C, 6236-C, 6378-C, and all frozen beverage machines with a serial number greater than 210000.  This updated blade helps improve machine performance, helps reduce freeze ups on soft serve machines, and is more rigid than prior V2 blades for better scraping performance and better product quality.  

Scraper Blade Replacement

Scraper blades should be replaced every 3-6 months depending on usage.  In some cases, they may need to be replaced more often.  Indications that your scraper blades need to be replaced include suddenly icy product, large chunks of frozen product, or sudden freeze-ups.  When the scraper blades wear out, it is most notable along the edges of the blade.  The edges will become rough and will form an arc if placed along a flat surface.
