VPlow Stops Premature Wear And Misalignment Of Conveyor Belt
A cement manufacturing plant was experiencing fugitive material on the non-carrying side of the conveyor. The spillage would collect on the underside of the belt during its return run, and the material became trapped between the head pulley and the belt. The problem caused premature wear of the belt, as well as misalignment, and had the potential to damage the tail pulley, as well.

New VPlow Prevents Conveyor Belt Damage
Luminant Sandow handles 31,200 tons of lignite per month. The plant had an existing v-plow installed, at one point, which allowed the nose of the plow to dip down from wear or belt slack. When the nose would dip, the plow would dig into the belt, causing belt damage and even ripping of the belt. This problem cost the plant $26,000 plus labor.

Martin technicians determined that inadequate belt support was the primary cause of the problem, allowing material to escape from the transfer point’s loading zone.
