Neponset (IL), United States – The Coffeyville Resources Nitrogen Fertilizer plant in Kansas has adopted innovative belt cleaning, alignment and modular chute technology to resolve tracking, spillage and dust problems on two conveyors transporting petroleum coke (petcoke). Martin Engineering redesigned the system with belt stabilization and chute sealing technology, sensitive belt tracking equipment and heavy-duty primary and secondary belt cleaners.
Neponset (IL), United States – An innovative cement manufacturer in the Midwestern U.S. has implemented a unique power solution developed by Martin Engineering at a remote conveyor location that lacked convenient electrical access. The patent-pending design uses the kinetic energy of the moving belt to generate enough electricity to drive an automated dust suppression system, a pneumatic belt cleaner tensioner and a series of air cannons, helping operators at the Illinois Cement Plant reduce fugitive dust and spillage, increase cargo flow efficiency and minimize labor costs for cleaning and maintenance.

Rosenfeld, Germany – The conditions in underground mining can be extreme for man and machine. The Flexco Europe offers solutions that enable conveyor belt operators to improve their processes and considerably simplify maintenance and repair work in this harsh environment. At the Ugol Rossii & Mining trade fair the specialist company will also be showing the FLEXCO XP belt fasteners.
Burleigh Heads (QLD), Australia – Martin Engineering has announced the creation of its newest factory-owned manufacturing facility in Queensland, Australia. The company has been a supplier of premium components since 1944, providing bulk handling solutions and flow control equipment in the region through a licensee since 1978.
Rosenfeld, Germany – Material carryback is one of the main causes of potential problems in belt conveyor systems. To prevent this, operators rely on precleaners for coarse materials and secondary cleaners for fine cleaning, and in many cases these cleaning systems can remove more than 90% of carryback. The new Y-Type by Flexco is a flexible secondary cleaner, which can be equipped with various polyurethane or carbide blades, giving users a system that meets their particular requirements in the most efficient way.
Neponset, IL, USA, January 9, 2017 – A significant investment in tooling and product engineering by a global leader in bulk material handling technology has produced a patented conveyor belt cleaner that is projected to reduce the cost of ownership by cleaning better and lasting longer. A lower purchase price was also one of the primary goals in designing the Martin® QB1 Cleaner HD, achieved by adopting state-of-the-art roll forming equipment as part of Martin Engineering’s manufacturing capabilities. The move is part of an overall plan to deliver high-performance components at industry-best prices.
