NEPONSET, IL – In a first for the bulk material handling industry, a global manufacturer of conveyor belt cleaning systems is offering lifetime no-cost replacement of tensioners and mainframes for belt cleaners that are fitted exclusively with the company’s cleaner blades.
Under the Forever Belt Cleaner Guarantee, Martin Engineering will provide replacement parts as required, for all cleaner assemblies using its urethane belt scrapers, regardless of model or blade type.
The company’s replacement blades are mixed, formed and cured in a computer controlled, modular work station designed and built by the company’s engineers, rather than subcontracting the production as some suppliers do. This process allows for the highest quality control and a one-day turnaround on most orders.
Engineered to effectively remove carryback, reduce material loss and provide longer belt life, the six color-coded blade types allow operators to perfectly match urethane compounds to the specific belt, speed and types of material. Some blade types are designed to perform under extreme temperatures as low as -40º Fahrenheit and as high as 300º F, and others are best suited for specific cargo such as hot slag and clinker, or moist materials.
Martin Engineering primary cleaners are produced using the patented Constant-Area Radial Pressure (CARP) curved design, first introduced by Martin, to deliver consistent cleaning throughout all stages of blade life. Martin assemblies allow one-pin replacement, making maintenance a safe, no-tool operation performed from outside of the transfer chute.
Founded in 1944, Martin Engineering has grown to be the world leader in bulk materials handling technology. With a solutions-based philosophy, the family-owned company has been a leading innovator of products and services to deliver cleaner, safer and more productive bulk material processing in applications such as coal handling, mining, cement, aggregates, biomass, grain and other channels. Headquartered in Neponset, IL, the company offers manufacturing, sales and service from factory-owned business units in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, India and the UK, and under exclusive license with ESS Australia.
