Prevent fugitive material carryback on your conveyor system.

When conveyor systems are utilized to transport high volumes of bulk solids, material can often bind to the belt and cause substantial problems. When carryback is not addressed, the consequences include an accumulation of material under the belt and buildup on return rollers, snub pulleys and bend pulleys. The buildup of carryback not only increases housekeeping costs, but makes proper belt tracking impossible. Carryback is a leading cause of unscheduled downtime in operations using conveyor systems.

If you’d like to know more about how you can clean your conveyor belts more effectively, talk to one of our experts. We’re standing ready to listen to you describe your operation and offer recommendations on how you can boost your bottom line. Our specialists are available to provide expert advice and assistance on all of your bulk material handling questions and problems.

CleanScrape® Cleaner Improves Operations At Coal-Fired Power Plant
A coal-fired power plant was experiencing massive amounts of carryback on the belt conveyor, which runs 24/7. Bottom ash and water requiring constant cleanup, and the wet, abrasive material caused premature component wear and presented a potential hazard of slips and falls. Standard belt cleaners lasted only days, and ceramic-reinforced models delivered just two weeks' service.

Belt Cleaner And Washbox™ Reduce Carryback By 99%
An innovative Michigan power supplier wanted to reduce surface dust and airborne particles, and reduce cleanup time at its PRB coal operation. Coal at the facility is fed either by rail, with a dumper that inverts the car and empties it directly onto a feeder conveyor, or with front loaders working off stockpiles in the yard. Both methods have the potential to generate dust.

Conveyor Belt Cleaner Resolves Carryback In Aggregate Application
A limestone company had a significant amount of material being carried back along the underside of the conveyors. This carryback would accumulate and create mounds of spillage that would pile up in excess amounts causing operational issues. For safety reasons and to increase production, the crew was required to shovel and wash carryback spillage daily.

Washbox™ Cleaner Eliminates Dust and Carryback on Long Overland Conveyor
A metal mine in the Western US with long overland conveyors was having trouble with dust and carryback. The mine had to work with a high altitude location which resulted in cold weather and low humidity, long conveyor length, sticky material capable of hardening like concrete, and limited water. It was determined that the overall operation would be better served with a system that washed the belt.

Coal Conveying System Plagued By Dust, Spillage and Carryback
A power plant’s coal-handling system starts with a reclaim conveyor under the stockpile and makes its way to the coal gallery. There, twelve conveyors distribute the coal to six different bunkers that feed the plant’s three coal-fired boilers. The plant suffered general dust, spillage and carryback problems throughout the coal conveying system.

Inadequate Belt Cleaners Replaced With Martin® Products
At a cement plant in Iowa, a 42-inch (1067 mm) wide belt carries material to the stockpile from the quarry’s primary crusher. But poor performance by the conveyor’s homemade “slab” belt cleaner left piles of carryback under the conveyor, interfering with its ability to move to the stockpile, while shortening component life.

Sugar Processor Hires Martin Engineering For Systems Analysis
The 10 conveyors in the raw sugar conveying system suffered severe spillage and carryback as well as belt wander that originated in the accumulation of fugitive material on rolling components. Plant management made a commitment to solve these problems. Martin Engineering provided a detailed engineering study that listed a number of recommendations.

Belt Cleaners Save Copper Mine $22,000 Per Week In Downtime
An Arizona copper mine was experiencing excessive spillage from their conveyor belts feeding materials to the crushing facility. The carryback was so excessive they had to clean the area once per shift. Martin recommended a new cleaning system. The customer is now saving $22,000 per week and the cleaning requirements have changed drastically.

Belt Cleaners Save Client $100K Per Year
The Springerville Generating Station handles 7 million tons of sub-bituminous coal per year. The coal yard was having problems with dust control, carryback and increasing wash down costs which negatively impacted the plant's production. Plant personnel were able to save more than $100,000 per year through the solution generated by the Martin team.

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.

CleanScrape® Cleaner Improves Operations At Rock Quarry
A rock quarry was experiencing carryback on one of its conveyors. Leading from the quarry to the interior of the facility, the outdoor portion of the belt was exposed to extreme weather, even though it is covered. Material adhered to the return side of the belt, collected around the mainframe and gummed up rollers, requiring downtime for maintenance and raising the cost of operation.

Chute Clogging And Spillage Corrected With CleanScrape® Cleaner
A coal-fired power plant was having chute clogging and spillage issues. The existing primary and secondary cleaners allowed uneven discharge of material, which clung to chute walls and caused clogging, requiring periodic downtime for adjustment. The blade edges wore quickly, causing enough carryback and spillage to encapsulate the cleaners.

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.
