Custom-Engineered Transfer Chutes: Making the Most of Your Material Flow

Posted on October 30, 2019 in Custom-Engineered Transfer Chutes, Flow Control Chutes, and Fugitive Dust Emissions

Your plant likely has its own material handling challenges and demands. In particular, if inefficient mechanical conveying ever becomes an issue, it can result in a lot of extra maintenance; troublesome pluggage, spillage and fugitive dust emissions; and potential damage from loading impact. All of this creates mounting O&M costs while raising risk and wearing […]

Facility Washdown Systems: Performance, Safety, Compliance and Savings

Posted on September 26, 2019 in Dust Control

The Automated Way to Greater Performance, Safety, Compliance and Savings Bulk material handlers know that keeping the plant clean and free of dust can consume labor, time and expense, especially if your conveying areas are being manually washed with a hose. Maintaining clean, dust-free work spaces concerns more than production as well: It also impacts […]

Conveyor Belt Support: The Right Under to Balance the Over

Posted on August 27, 2019 in Material Handling, and Transfer Systems

Efforts to protect the conveyor belt and control dust and spillage frequently focus on solutions above the belt. This is helpful – but also often incomplete, as many problems originate beneath the belt. Efficient material flow systems include conveyor support above and below the belt. Benetech, Inc. specializes in complete conveyor belt support systems and […]

Dust Suppression System: What Is It Really, and Why Do You Need One?

Posted on July 31, 2019 in Dust Control, and Material Handling

When bulk material handlers think of dust suppression, they often think of measures taken to reduce dust but not the different “tools” used to reduce dust. When Benetech refers to dust suppression, we mean a precisely engineered chemical solution–injection system that, when applied properly, reduces and even eliminates dust. It’s a distinction to note because […]

Benetech MaxZone® XN Wear Liner: Outside Control of Better Inside Performance

Posted on June 20, 2019 in Material Handling, and Transfer Systems

As a bulk material handling professional, you’re familiar with the challenges  wear liners can pose. For optimal function, the conveyor liner should be inside the skirtboard and wear liner system; this protects the sealing system and chute work from the attrition of material loading and throughput. However, getting into the skirtboard system can require confined […]

The Conveyor Belt Scraper: Supporting Part, Major Role

Posted on May 28, 2019 in Material Handling

High-performing conveyor belts are vital to your production and customer service. If you start to notice spillage around the head pulley and carryback or an increasingly worn conveyor belt scraper, these are signs your cleaning system is ready for an inspection. In many cases, you will find the problem lies with the scraper blade. Let’s […]

Conveyor Belt Sealing and Support: A Perfect Pair for Greater Production

Posted on May 1, 2019 in Material Handling

Bulk material handlers know the importance of a well-built and easy-to-maintain conveyor belt skirting system. The task that faces conveyor belts is tough – they have to remain durable and efficient in transferring bulk materials for long periods. Without proper sealing and support, they can deteriorate sooner than expected, leading to costly, unwanted spillage, interruptions […]

Conveyor System Inspection Doors: Your Solution to Proactive and Profitable Maintenance

Posted on March 26, 2019 in Maintenance

It’s a question most bulk material handlers will consider at some point: Should we spend a little on equipment upkeep now – or potentially a lot more on correcting problems later? Evidence and experience prove the value of periodic conveyor system maintenance: With greater profitability, OSHA compliance and operational efficiency the result, conveyor maintenance would […]

Load Zone Containment: Zeroing In on Better Production, Dust Control and Maintenance

Posted on January 24, 2019 in Dust Control, Maintenance, and Material Handling

Material handling systems are designed to ensure that raw material is successfully carried and delivered from one point in the process to the next – i.e. they aim to produce a planned, reliable output. Achieving this requires equipment and conditions that save time, money and effort without any interruptions. However, because of an array of […]

Dust Suppression for Crusher Plants: Compliance and Safety for Silica

Posted on December 10, 2018 in Dust Control

If you work in a profession that involves crushing asphalt, concrete or rocks (e.g. mining, milling or construction), you’re probably aware of OSHA’s tightening Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) for respirable crystalline silica (Table 1 of OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926.1153). The new standard – 50 micrograms per cubic meter with an active level of 25 […]
