Martin Engineering: Conveyor Belt Generates Power for Air Cannons to control Build-Up

Neponset (IL), United States – The Ash Grove Cement plant in Louisville, Nebraska produces approximately 1.1 million tons per year. In order to maintain production levels, efficient material movement via conveyor is critical. The issue is especially acute when running wet raw material at the quarry. Over time, operations personnel noted accumulation in specific locations that threatened to slow material movement – particularly at transfer points – which required manual intervention on a near-constant basis.

SWR engineering: Transportation of minerals – Blockage Detection with ProGap S

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.
