Limena (PD), Italy – ONT, part of the BEDESCHI Group, was commissioned by OCRIM with a new belt conveyor system for grain in Yanbu Port – Saudi Arabia. The order comprises a system of three belt conveyors with a width of 1400 mm and a length of 180 m+360 m+36 m transporting 1000 t/h grain from the client ship-unloader on the jetty to the existing storage bins.
Beckum, Germany – After the first overland conveyor of 12.5 km was put into operation in 2009, BEUMER Group client Yadong Cement also commissioned a conveyor line from the transfer station to the plant. The construction and commissioning of the expansion started in 2014, and just less than two years later, the second part with the 13.6 long overland conveyor was put into operation.
Schliengen, Germany – When screening bulk materials, the screening plant may occasionally become clogged. In special cases, the material congestion may reach the upstream conveyor belt – with costly consequences. The following case study shows how this can be avoided by using suitable sensor technology from SWR engineering.

Neponset (IL), USA – Martin Engineering has introduced a new design specifically for applications where space for installation is limited. The new SQC2STM RM (Reduced Mini) Cleaner from Martin Engineering is a compact secondary belt cleaner that allows installation in close quarters, built with a narrow profile that resists material build-up.
Runcorn, United Kingdom – Engineering and services provider Bilfinger UK has won a multi-million pound contract with Aggregate Industries to design, supply, and install new electrical infrastructure at the Bardon Hill quarry extension project. The deal forms part of a significant scheme at the Leicestershire site, which also includes installation of a new primary crusher and 4 km of overland conveyors.
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.
Marietta (GA), United States – Dos Santos International (DSI) has started up the second DSI GPS (Gently Pressed Sandwich) high angle conveyor for the Paris Tunneling Project. DSI was awarded a contract to provide two vertical DSI GPS systems for H+E Logistik. A particular challenge of this project was the requirement to provide a versatile system that will be reusable in future projects. Continue reading Dos Santos International starts up additional Sandwich Conveyor for Paris Tunneling Project
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.

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”.
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.
