High throughput, low dust levels Flexco offers various skirting systems to avoid loss of material in belt conveyor transfer areas in coal mines, steel mills and wood processing facilities. Fasteners combined with skirting systems effectively isolate the material on the belt without damaging the belt cover, enabling operators to easily reduce dust levels while increasing material throughput. Flexco supplies easy-to-install skirt clamps for a wide range of load levels.
Neponset, IL (USA) – As bulk handling equipment suppliers continue to make use of new and evolving technologies to develop “smarter” conveyor systems, a leading global manufacturer has introduced data tracking with QR codes on its belt cleaners and other components. Customers benefit from regularly-scheduled inspections by factory-trained and MSHA-certified technicians, providing operators with easy access to a wealth of data on the application, operating environment, service life and condition of conveyor components, updated on every belt cleaner maintenance visit. By avoiding the common “run it until it breaks” approach to conveyor maintenance, a Martin Engineering proprietary smart phone app gives technicians and customers a tool that helps maximize performance and service life — while minimizing carryback and spillage — to improve safety and reduce unscheduled downtime.
Conditions in underground mining range from arctic cold to extreme heat and are especially hard on man and machine. At the Ugol Rossii & Mining Trade Fair, (6-9 June, Novokuznetsk), Flexco GmbH will be showcasing solutions that not only allow conveyor system operators to improve their processes, but also greatly simplify maintenance and repair work. The solutions on show will include the new belt centring station PT Pro EZ, which detects a skew and realigns the belt correctly – an important step in preventing material losses.
Neponset, IL, USA, April 26, 2017 – A global leader in bulk material handling technology has introduced a new family of heavy-duty conveyor belt cleaner designs, engineered so the blade cartridge can be pulled away from the belt for safe access and replaced by a single worker. Martin Engineering developed the Safe to Service (STS) blades to secure both primary and secondary cleaners rigidly to the conveyor mainframe, while offering more versatility and easier access. Initially available on the Martin® QC1™ Cleaner HD, Martin® QC1™ Cleaner XHD and Martin® SQC2S™ Secondary Cleaner, external servicing reduces confined space entry and eliminates reach-in maintenance, while facilitating faster blade replacement. The result is greater safety and efficiency, with less downtime.
The true way is right down the middle. Flexco‘s belt centring systems ensure quiet running, increased life and reduced material loss for an Indian steel producer
Steel retains its value, it is durable, and its properties always remain the same. These are characteristics which a successful Indian steel producer also applies to its production machinery – for example to the belt conveyors which transport the iron ore to the furnace. The belts were repeatedly running askew. The user had to frequently service and, in the worst case, replace the belts. What is more, there was a considerable loss of material which resulted in enormous costs. The company has now opted for Flexco‘s PT Max Belt Trainer belt centring systems. With their special pivot and tilt movement, if the belt wanders, they immediately guide it back into the correct position.
The Jim Way 3D tracker roller, which employs highly effective tracking action, quickly ensures the belt alignment. In addition, the diamond groove rubber on the surface of the part sheds water and residues from belt.

The interface of two colors, which is a wear line, obviously indicates when the blade should be replaced. In addition, with the arc-shaped back side, the blades remove carryback effectively and without any residue to maintain the good scraping performance. The blade-to-belt pressure should is checked on the inspection window of tensioner.
