Rise above the global competition and stay profitable with conveyors and transfer point solutions!
While international trade has been part of the global economy for centuries, imports and exports have expanded rapidly as technology has become more efficient and more sophisticated. In today’s economy, highly efficient industrial ports – located strategically on navigable waterways including oceans, rivers and lakes – are more important than ever. To maximise profitability, products must be moved quickly between ships or barges and railcars. This requires a highly complex, precise system of conveyor belts and transfer points capable of moving a wide range of products that includes everything from large containers to bulk materials over long distances, sometimes even more than a mile.
At a busy shipping port, whether it’s an independently run facility or owned by a mine or processing plant, equipment that is running inefficiently or breaking down causes numerous problems. If material that spills from the conveyor belt can’t be recovered and added back to the stream, that product is lost forever and lost product equals lost profit. Equipment that isn’t working correctly or is simply not designed well can also be a drag on efficiency, which means the ship stays in berth longer than necessary and slows down your load and unload times. Worker safety is also a concern when workers have to continually clean up fugitive material.
At Martin Engineering, our products are designed and manufactured to ensure conveyor belts operate cleanly and safely over long distances and optimise the efficiency of transfer and unloading points. By making sure your products move efficiently along the conveyor without spilling from the belt or accumulating into bottlenecks inside chutes and hoppers, we can help you prevent unexpected shutdowns for cleanup and maintenance. And since most industrial ports are on the water, containing bulk materials keeps it out of environmentally sensitive areas and keeps your operation within regulatory compliance.
We have extensive experience working with ports and terminals, so whatever challenge you may be facing, our professional engineers and technicians have most likely seen it, figured out the solution, and tested it to make sure that it works! And if you have a problem we’ve never seen, we love a new challenge! Contact a Martin representative to find out how we can apply our decades of experience to solving your problems today!
