Belt Support Products Prevent Coal Accumulation
A coal plant produces a wet coal slurry that is pressed into fuel cakes, which drop down a 5 meter chute. With belt speeds of around 3.6 meters per second, the operation processes approx. 1.6 million tons per month. The large volume of material and relatively high speed had a tendency to release small amounts of spillage, which collected into significant accumulations.

Paper Plant Having Trouble With Fugitive Material
The release of airborne dust can cause health concerns and create negative attention from regulatory agencies. Any material that spills off the conveyor is a loss - loss in material, profit and efficiency. The spillage also creates the need for manual cleanup which takes man-hours and is a dangerous task - putting workers in harm's way.

Martin Transfer Point Solution Saves Mainframe
A nickel mining plant was experiencing excessive equipment wear and damage at a main transfer point leading from the rotary dryer, handling 71,430 tons per month of bulk material. The impact force of cargo on an unsupported belt was cracking idlers and bending the mainframe. The damage forced operators to shut down the entire system regularly to repair mainframe damage and replace broken equipment.
