Featured at Hillhead booth #RA17 will be a wide range of products, including conveyor belt cleaning technologies such as the revolutionary CleanScrape® design, along with innovative primary and secondary cleaners and tensioners.
The unique CleanScrape conveyor belt cleaning system has received the Australian Bulk Handling Award in the "Innovative Technology" category for its design and potential benefits, including outstanding cleaning performance, low belt wear, extended service life, reduced maintenance and improved safety, ultimately delivering lower cost of ownership.
Transfer point sealing technologies will be on display, with a spotlight on impact cradles, EVO® External Wear Liner and ApronSeal™ Double Skirting, along with a variety of other products designed to make bulk handling operations cleaner, safer and more productive.
The company, will also provide booth visitors with details on its industry-changing Mr. Blade® Program, a factory-direct replacement program for belt cleaners, delivering fresh polyurethane blades, specified and custom-fitted on-site and installed free of charge. The new program from Martin Engineering assures customers of accurately-sized and professionally installed replacement blades that are matched to their specific application, providing optimum cleaning performance and service life. Because the service component of the new program includes not only installation but also maintenance and adjustment, plant resources are freed up for core business activities. Consistent attention to the cleaners helps deliver maximum performance and wear life, minimizing component failures and unscheduled shutdowns.
Of special interest will be a personal appearance by Trey Poulson from the popular Gold Rush TV series, cable TV’s #1 unscripted series for three years running. Currently in its eighth season, Gold Rush follows the exploits of three competing mining teams as they seek to extract the most placer gold from their operations. Martin Engineering has provided substantial support to the Hoffman crew, also known as 316 Mining, in the form of conveyor belt cleaning technology, belt trackers and safety guards, as well as the company’s patented Roll Gen™ system, an innovative technology that uses the kinetic energy from a moving conveyor belt to generate enough power to run a wide variety of electrical or electronic systems. Poulson will be on hand to discuss his experiences with the show and his association with the Martin Engineering team.
