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.
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.
