The drag chain conveyor under a slow moving 60-inch (1524 mm) feed conveyor was inoperable. The Engineered Projects Group of Martin Engineering was called in to engineer the existing system’s tear-out and design a new dribble chute with the installation of Martin® Belt Cleaners.


Drawings supplied by Martin Engineering provided a detailed procedure to remove the drag conveyor.

Martin® Service technicians prepared and sent detailed drawings with a step-by-step procedure for removal of the drag chain conveyor. Following removal and then construction of a new dribble chute by a local contractor, Martin Engineering's regional Martin® Service technician installed a new belt cleaner system composed of a Martin® QC1™ Cleaner XHD and Martin® Secondary Cleaner with Martin® Inspection Doors.


Belt cleaners from Martin Engineering are installed in the new dribble chute at the Consumers Energy D.E. Karn Plant.

The new belt cleaning system works in combination with the new dribble chute to remove carryback and return material to the main material stream.
