Solutions that make underground and surface mining operations more profitable.

Your mining operation relies heavily on conveyor belts to transport the material taken out of the ground and get it into production, so the durability and efficiency of your equipment is critical. Unscheduled downtime is unacceptable, and fugitive material is not only a maintenance and cleanliness issue – it represents lost profit.

Whether you’re mining coal, precious metals, base metals or aggregates, you can rely on the fact that Martin Engineering has been a leader in the original development of the conveyor belt equipment used today to make mining operations cleaner, safer and more productive.

Client Tests Martin Belt Cleaners In Side-By-Side Comparison
At an agglomeration plant in Peru, plant management wished to compare the performance of competitive belt cleaning systems. The plant operates parallel (redundant) conveyor systems that carry approximately the same material load on the same operating schedule. Installing competing belt cleaners on the side-by-side conveyors allowed the plant to compare belt cleaning results.

Belt Cleaner Improves Efficiency And Extends Blade Life
At a mine in Fayette County, West Virginia, coal-carrying conveyors both above and below ground need to be cleaned to reduce operating problems and safety issues. Cleaning these belts can be difficult as the multiple mechanical splices on many belts will reduce cleaning efficiency and shorten blade life.

Copper Mine Solicits Martin's Expertise For Conveyor Belt Improvements
A copper mine in Arizona is a mine-for-leach operation and produces copper cathodes. The operation consists of two open pits feeding a crushing facility with a capacity of 103,000 metric tons-per-day. The crushed ore is delivered to a single leach pad by a series of overland and portable conveyors. The client hired Martin Engineering to evaluate their current system.

Air Cannons Prevent Buildup on Kiln Walls
A mine was experiencing build up on the kiln walls, requiring continuous manual cleanup. This presented potential safety hazards for workers and increased man hours and overall expenses. Martin Engineering recommended installing Martin® 150-Liter Hurricane Air Cannons with retractable nozzles as well as Martin® Thermo Safety Shield.

Air Cannons Immediately Increase Production
An existing lime kiln had been upgraded in 2014 with the addition of a pre-heater element to allow the plant to burn waste-derived fuels to save on energy costs. The introduction of the pre-heater section with its push rod type design started to create build up issues. Production was now critical with many kiln stops for manual cleaning and rodding.

Martin Engineering Offers Dependable Solutions When Others Fail
A mine was experiencing dangerous spillage at the loading zone of its tower mounted conveyor. Despite installing equipment from a previous supplier, workers found that dust filled the tower and chunks of raw material spilled from the transfer chute onto the stairs, creating a potential workplace hazard. Twice a month operations had to be disrupted for 12 to 24 hours, so that a 4 to 5 person team could clean spillage.

Chute Structure Products Reduce Unscheduled Downtime
An iron ore mine was experiencing premature deterioration on the wear plate of a transfer chute, leading to perforation and spillage. Every 60 days, operations would be interrupted while workers performed a potentially dangerous chute entry to cut out the material and replace it. Labor for cleanup, unscheduled downtime and expensive replacement equipment made the situation unsustainable.

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.
