Neponset (IL), United States – The ability to maintain the proper force required to keep the edge of a belt cleaner blade against the belt is a key factor in the performance of any cleaning system. Blade-to-belt pressure must be controlled to achieve optimal cleaning with a minimal rate of blade wear. A belt cleaner that is properly installed and adjusted as described in this Martin Engineering article helps to minimize carryback and spillage, reducing risk and overall operating costs.

Schliengen, Germany –At a factory of a food manufacturer, a suitable filter system was installed to clean the dust-laden exhaust air generated during the processing of dairy powder. In order to ensure that the dedusting system continues to function reliably even after prolonged operation, a ProSens dust measurement system from SWR engineering Messtechnik was installed, which continuously monitors the dust concentration in the clean gas side after filter elements.
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.
Lincoln (NE), United States – The simple-to-install 1-1/2” NPT BinMaster NCR-80 non-contact radar now offers optional Class II certifications for hazardous locations. This 80 GHz sensor focuses its powerful signal in a narrow 4° beam to penetrate dust and accurately measure solids in silos up to 80 feet tall.
Aschaffenburg, Deutschland – Ein neuer TIP-TITE® Eimer-Kipper von Flexicon entleert staubfrei Schüttgüter mit hohem Schüttgewicht aus Eimern in nachfolgende Prozessanlagen wie Lagerbehälter.
Die Anlage ist geeignet zur Aufnahme von Eimern mit einem Inhalt von bis zu 20 Litern, einer Höhe von 380 mm und einem Gewicht von bis zu 340 kg.
Sterling (IL), United States – Sterling Systems & Controls line of bulk bag unloading systems available with integral dust containment. The integral dust containment system provides operator access to the bag spout for connecting a new full bag or disconnecting an empty bag, within a Dust Containment Box.
Braeside (VIC), Australia – Timely and efficient material transport from one conveyor belt to the other — with minimum spillage and maintaining the structural integrity of the conveyor belt — is crucial for the long-term viability of any bulk handling operation. By accurately identifying, evaluating and optimizing existing belt loading, transshipment facilities can reduce many unpleasant problems on site and address the safety issues of dust emissions.
Peoria (IL), United States – BossTek, a pioneer in atomized mist technology for dust suppression has announced an industry-leading upgrade to the company’s product warranty. Having previously set the industry standard with 3 year/3000-hour coverage, the company has increased the term to a 5 year or 5000-hour replacement warranty on the direct drive fan motor of its entire product lineup.
Stuttgart, Germany – Coperion’s newly developed FLUIDLIFT ecoblue® is a quality and efficiency-enhancing pneumatic conveying process for plastic pellets. According to Coperion, compared to conventional designs, the process generates much less dust and streamers, which improves the quality of the product and reduces waste. Coperion will present its new process for the first time worldwide at NPE 2018 in Orlando (FL), USA. Continue reading Coperion at NPE 2018: FLUIDLIFT ecoblue minimizes Dust and increases Efficiency of Pneumatic Conveying of Pellets
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.
