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.

Coal-Fired Power Plant Needed Solution To Conveyor Belt Mistracking
A coal-fired power station was running into problems during the reclaiming and stacking out coal phase. The reclaim belt was consistently encountering tracking problems in both directions. Belt mistracking leads to material spillage, higher likelihood of worker injury, and increased maintenance expenses.

Air Cannons Knock Down Sticky Coal From Hopper Walls
A power plant was having trouble with coal conditions. The material was wet and slightly sticky, which made it stick to the walls of the hopper, so much so that the material would accumulate and create a blockage in the hopper. Production couldn’t run smoothly, requiring temporary shutdowns so employees could manually knock down the material from the walls of the hopper.

Coal-Fired Power Plant Applauds MartinPLUS® Services Installation Team
A coal-fired power plant in Iowa was ready to replace their ineffective belt cleaners and cumbersome air tensioning system. Plant officials agreed to test a Martin® QC1™ Cleaner XHD from Martin Engineering. The test installation provided a blade life of approximately one year, and its “one-pin” blade change simplified maintenance.

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.

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.

Air Cannons Dramatically Improve Employee Safety
At this rail-to-barge trans-loading facility, a set of six stacker tubes connected by conveyors allows the stockpiling of coal. Coal would hang up inside the tubes, sticking to the walls, building up inside. To clean coal out of the tubes, the operation used manual labor. A man-lift would be used to raise personnel to the lowest window of a stacker tube, so they could dig out the accumulated coal.

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.

Air Cannons Put An End To Manual Clean Out
The plant handles ash and was experiencing material buildup on the sides of the hoppers. This created a safety concern for those employees who had to perform manual cleanup. Employee safety is important to management so they reached out to Martin Engineering to help eliminate buildup and the need for manual clean out.

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.
