Tracker™

The Martin® Tracker™ provides immediate, continuous precision adjustment of wandering conveyor belts. The Tracker™ works where other belt training devices fail to reduce edge damage, prevent spillage and extend belt life.

Features and Benefits:

  • Keeps the belt in alignment with automatic, continuous adjustments
  • Improved tracking reduces edge damage, spillage and maintenance expense
  • Continuous precision adjustment of the patented parallel steering/training system keeps the belt tracking properly

Options:

The Martin® Tracker™ is available in 3 models to match the requirements of each application.

  • The Tracker™ is designed for applications under typical industrial material handling conditions.
  • The Tracker™ HD is designed to withstand the stress associated with wider, thicker belts moving at higher speeds and carrying heavier loads.
  • The Tracker™ XHD is engineered to be effective in the most rugged of applications.

Belt Alignment Products Prevent Excessive Wear And Extend Belt Life
Minera del Norte´s Cemesa iron ore mining unit was having serious tracking problems with the conveyor belt leading from the primary crushing area. After drifting into constant contact with the frame, longitudinal tears formed on the belt, which reduced the usable width from 36 inches (914 mm) to 32 inches (812 mm). This caused spillage and lowered the production volume.

Transfer Point Solutions Result In Safer, More Productive Coal Mining
A coal mining facility in China was experiencing dust and spillage from one of its conveyors. Fugitive dust lowered the air quality, clogged equipment and had the potential to affect workers’ health. Misalignment of the belt caused piles of lost product that had to be cleaned up, reducing system efficiency and wasting labor hours.

MartinPLUS® Installation Services Redesign Power Plant Transfer Points
An energy company in Lansing, Iowa was facing severe spillage problems in underground loading points. The steel structure on part of conveyor feeding system was shot. It was old and worn out. There were bows and dips in the skirtboard, and it wouldn't stay sealed. This created excessive dust and spillage in the tunnel.

Martin® Tracker™ Corrects Conveyor Belt Misalignment At Steel Complex
An integrated steel complex producing flat steel (steel slabs) and long steel for both domestic use and export was having a problem with belt misalignment on one of the main conveyors, causing spillage of coal along the sides of the belt. As a result, the conveyor had to be shut down regularly so employees could manually clean the area.

Martin Designs Special Suspension Bracket On Suspended Conveyors
The operation uses underground conveyors suspended by cables from the mine ceiling. Keeping the belts running in the center of the suspended conveyors is a continuous challenge. Martin designed a special suspension bracket to allow installation on the suspended conveyors. Units are built with bronze bearings to avoid problems with static electricity in the underground coal mine.

Transfer Point Solutions Increase Productivity At Container Board Plant
Bark and wood waste are used as fuel to produce heat and steam for this container board plant. A series of belt conveyors 36 to 48 inches wide carry bark to the powerhouse. The Pine Hill Mill began a program to improve its materials-handling operations and eliminate fugitive materials. The bark conveying system was the first system to be upgraded.

Martin® Tracker™ Corrects Conveyor Belt Mistracking
Canada Steamship Lines Inc. owns and operates the largest fleet of self-unloading vessels in the world. One of these vessels is the CSL Assiniboine, which plies the Great Lakes carrying cargos of up to 33,860 tons of coal, grain or taconite pellets. The ship’s self-unloading system consists of three conveyors belts below the vessel’s holds.

Deteriorating Power Plant Needed Material Handling System Redesign
The coal conveying system at the power plant needed refurbishment. Problems included fugitive material arising as dust and spillage, as well as a general deterioration of the condition and performance of the system. Complicating the project was the plant’s need to remain in operation during the work. The plant would need to run the coal handling system almost every day.

Cement Plant Gets Extensive Conveyor System Overhaul
Like most cement manufacturing sites, GCC Dakotah employs an extensive conveyor system to handle raw materials and move finished product. GCC determined that significant upgrades could be made on conveyor transfer points to reduce spillage and dust emissions in the South Dakota facility. The upgrade included six transfer points on four conveyors.

Tracker™ Installation Corrects Spillage and Fugitive Material
India’s leading integrated steel producer was having a belt tracking problem at its sintering plant located in the southern part of the country. With a capacity of 14.3 million tons per annum (MTPA) of bulk material, the main conveyor belt was becoming misaligned, causing excessive spillage and piles of fugitive material.

Transfer Point Solutions Correct Conveyor Belt Mistracking
Belt mistracking was leading to premature failure of the apron seal and therefore causing material to leak out. In an attempt to train the belt and prevent belt wander, the plant was constantly adjusting the conveyor belt at the tail pulley via the mechanical take-up. This was inefficient for the plant and the cost to replace prematurely-failing equipment was high.

Sand Plant Experiences Spillage And Carryback Before Martin Steps In
Handling an abundance of sand every year, the plant had little time or resources to spend on inefficiency. Due to the lack of proper belt cleaning, spillage and carryback were present throughout the entire plant, leading to immense material loss. MSHA mandated corrective action be taken towards containment and collection to cut the amount of dust in half.

Conveyor Belt Inspection Identifies Carryback And Belt Wandering
The plant handles 1,000,000 tons of PRB coal per year and was experiencing carryback and belt wander on the rail unloading belt feeders. The carryback was reducing efficiency and profitability and increasing maintenance and cleanup expenses. Unsafe working conditions were a concern due to material accumulation on floors and walkways, creating slip/trip hazards along with fire hazards.

Belt Misalignment Causing Structural and Belt Damage
A conveyor belt at a coal mine became loose, ran askew and material was adhering to the corrective roller. This misalignment caused the belt edges to wear, reduced the life of the belt and increased spillage along the conveyor. These problems not only impacted the material handling efficiency but also increased the labor intensity, and created serious environmental pollution.
