    Cutting conveyor chute buildup

    New dribble chutes have been launched to prevent buildup in conveyor discharge chutes. Martin, a global bulk materials handling business, has developed a new solution to prevent carryback released by secondary conveyor belt conveyors from sticking to the rear slope of the discharge chute. Typically, if left to build up, material can compress on secondary […]

    Vibrating Subfloor Prevents Buildup in Conveyor Discharge Chutes

    The Martin Vibrating Dribble Chute prevents carryback released by secondary conveyor belt cleaners from sticking to the rear slope of the discharge chute. If left to build up, material can encapsulate secondary cleaners and deposit harmful carryback onto the return side of the belt, fouling idlers, and pulleys. The Vibrating Dribble Chute uses material disruption […]
