Martin Engineering: Cement Plant overcomes remote Conveyor Issueswith unique Power Generation Technology

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.  Continue reading Martin Engineering: Cement Plant overcomes remote Conveyor Issueswith unique Power Generation Technology

Kinder Australia: Skirting Solution eliminates all Barriers to “Confined Spaces”

Braeside (VIC), Australia WARNING! Enter with Extreme Caution! On-site safety signs are designed to alert maintenance workers to potential hazards before entering and performing maintenance work in dangerous and unsafe materials handling environments such as inside chutes, silos and hoppers. Often the necessary maintenance work may require permits and adherence to safety precautions before entering these “confined areas”.

Martin Engineering: Conveyor Equipment Manufacturer uses unique Strategy to Control Dust Emissions

Neponset (IL), United States Martin Engineering has helped mitigate dust emissions at the underground limestone mine of a cement production plant by implementing an innovative transfer point solution.  Using a specially-designed dust control unit (DCU) to spray a surfactant onto both sides of the cargo stream during transfer onto the main conveyor, Martin Engineering was able to help Continental Cement Company, LLC, suppress fugitive dust both along the underground belt path and during discharge at the outdoor storage yard.
