Problem

India’s leading integrated steel producer was having a belt tracking problem at its sintering plant.

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. To avoid equipment damage and potential safety issues, workers had to manually clean the area, resulting in regular and costly downtime and man-hours.

Solution

The Martin® Tracker™ provided immediate, continuous precision adjustment of wandering conveyor belts.

After surveying the problem, Martin technicians recommended the installation of two Martin® Trackers™, one upper and one lower, to keep the belt centered. The lower unit was installed on the conveyor’s return side, ahead of the tail pulley, and the upper unit was installed after the load zone. Martin® Trackers™ provided immediate and continuous correction of the belt’s path, thus preventing spillage, equipment damage and time consuming repairs and cleanup.

Results

The Martin® Trackers™ have solved the problem of belt misalignment and spillage.

The Martin® Trackers™ have solved the problem of belt misalignment and spillage. Operators no longer have to shut down the plant regularly for cleanup. With less unscheduled downtime, production is optimized and labor costs are reduced. The client is very satisfied with the service and equipment provided by the Martin team. As a result, the company has ordered additional products and services.
