Flow Chutes offer belt-to-belt transfer of material.
Press Release Summary:
INERTIAL FLOW(TM) Chutes provide custom-engineered flow of bulk solids in conveyor loading and discharge applications. Chutes consist of hood discharge chute, spoon receiving chute, and flow-engineered enclosure to contain stream of material. INERTIAL FLOW(TM) Transfer Points offer passive dust control, reduced material buildups and blockages, and reduced loading impact. Controlled load placement prevents mistracking, spillage, and belt edge damage.

Martin Engineering introduces MARTIN® INERTIAL FLOW(TM) Transfer Technology
With the introduction of its "hood and spoon" INERTIAL FLOW(TM) Chutes, Martin Engineering (Neponset, Illinois) now offers full service engineering and construction of belt-to-belt transfer stations. By adding advanced engineering capabilities, Martin Engineering is now the solids handling industry's leading "single source" resource for the improvement of belt-to-belt transfer point. With MARTIN® Transfer Technology, the company can supply components ranging from simple elements (such as dust curtains) to engineered subsystems (such as impact cradles) to complete engineering and construction services. MARTIN® INERTIAL FLOW(TM) Chutes provide an engineered flow of bulk solids in conveyor loading and discharge applications. These chutes include a "hood" discharge chute, a "spoon" receiving chute, and a flow-engineered enclosure to contain the stream of material as it leaves the head pulley until it is deposited onto the receiving belt. MARTIN® INERTIAL FLOW(TM) Transfer Points offer a number of benefits, including: o Passive Dust Control, to reduce dust escape while minimizing "bag house" collection. o Increased Flow Rate, to eliminate chutes as a production bottleneck. o Reduced Material Buildups and Blockages, to reduce chute plugging. o Reduced Loading Impact, to extend belt life by reducing damage and abrasion. o Controlled Load Placement, to prevent mistracking, spillage, and belt edge damage. o Reduced Wear on Liners, to extend service life and cut replacement cost and time. MARTIN® Transfer Technology can be incorporated into the engineering and construction of new transfer points or the modification and upgrade of existing belt-to-belt transfers. MARTIN® Transfer Technology can help meet regulatory requirements, increase production, and reduce operating costs. Included in advanced engineering capabilities of MARTIN® Transfer Technology are: o Bulk Solids Property Testing o "Before and After" Dust And Spillage Level Testing o Preliminary Design and Cost Estimation. o 3D Modeling And Flow Simulation. o Detail Design (incorporating standard or custom-engineered components) o Project Management o Equipment Fabrication o Field Installation and System Maintenance.
