Scrape belts clean at the head pulley. Eliminate carryback and spillage with our belt cleaners.
We can help you stay profitable in an increasingly competitive industry!
As media and communications continue migrating from "ink on paper" to digital platforms, the pulp and paper industry is clearly in a period of shifting markets. While printing is in a decline, manufacturing is rising in many emerging markets, driving an increasing global demand for paper used in product packaging. Demand for paper hygiene and cleaning products is also expected to grow in coming years. At the same time, paper products are now being exported from all over the world, so competition has gotten more intense.
The biggest challenge for the pulp and paper industry is managing the wide variety of bulk materials, which can range from wet and sticky slurry to loose, dry material like sawdust or loose waste paper. Primarily, plant managers deal with fugitive material and runaway dust issues. Transporting wet material in pulp or slurry form sticks easily to the conveyor belts and gets carried back to the tail pulley, potentially jamming or damaging the equipment. Meanwhile, dry material, like wood chips or bark, is lighter in weight and is more prone to spilling off the belt. Dust is also a problem at pulp and paper plants because it can be inhaled by workers, causing health problems, and can even ignite and cause an explosion.
At Martin Engineering, we manufacture durable equipment that keeps raw wood, wood chips, wood pulp, slurry and recycled waste paper on the conveyor belts better than any other product on the market. We are known throughout the world for the durability and cost effectiveness of our belt cleaning solutions, which eliminate carryback problems when working with sticky, resinous substances. Plus, we provide innovative transfer point solutions that stabilise your belts, minimise fugitive materials and contain runaway dust.
We also offer a wide range of flow aid and vibration products that eliminate flow problems in silos, hoppers, chutes and trailers. So whether you’re transporting wood or wood pulp as a fuel source for power generation, or as part of a paper production process, we are dedicated to helping you transport it as efficiently as possible.
