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), 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.
Bolton, United Kingdom – The design the Ajax Equipment LynflowTM Chute arose from a demanding duty requested by a user, who wanted to monitor the rate of discharge down a chute from an Ajax continuous mixer. The task was difficult because the product had poor flow properties, the very small rate of discharge from the mixer fluctuated and was spread over a relatively wide path, whereas the monitoring device required a steady bed thickness of at least 10 mm deep.
Barnetby, UK — A global provider of quicklime and chalk products has resolved a significant fugitive material problem by implementing state-of-the-art containment and dust suppression on one of its primary limestone conveyors. After finding that an estimated 10 to 20% of the material load was spilling along the belt path, Singleton Birch implemented a control strategy from Martin Engineering that included a rebuilt transfer point as the material takes an approx. 6 metre (20-foot) drop from one belt to another.
Erie, PA—Eriez® Vice President of Sales and Marketing Charlie Ingram announces customers around the world made 2015 the most successful year ever for the company in terms of metal detector sales. “In addition to increased sales in North America, we experienced significant growth in the Pacific Rim, Latin American and South American countries,” says Ingram.
Eriez metal detection sales have been on the rise for the past several years, prompting the company to double its metal detector manufacturing capacity at the Erie, PA. headquarters plant in 2014. This investment enabled Eriez to shorten lead times, meet growing demand and keep metal detector manufacturing in the United States.
