Pneumatic Air Cannons: Keeping Material Flow a Sure Go

Posted on March 25, 2021

Those who devote their time and skill to bulk material handling know how much they depend on a material flow that isn’t slowed by pluggage and build-up. This becomes particularly true if you’re working with wet or sticky material such as sand or cement. Consistent production and customer service require that chutes, bins, hoppers, silos […]

Conveyor Belt Spillage: How Do You Control It?

Posted on September 2, 2020

Conveyor systems are central to bulk material handling. You depend on them to move immense amounts of product reliably and efficiently to support your production goals. At the same time, if left unchecked, spillage from the conveyor creates operational issues, especially around transfer points. As material falls from the carry side of the belt and […]

Stockpile Sealing and Management

Posted on August 13, 2020

How Safe Is Your Stored Material? Stockpiles are an integral part of any bulk material handling system, such that proper raw material can be retrieved for continued production. Stockpile management requires sealing and protecting the piles from moisture; an improved environmental profile; good-neighbor efforts; and, if the material is combustible, inhibiting oxygen. If inactive storage […]

The MaxZone® Plus System

Posted on June 30, 2020

Cost-Cutting Innovation in the Belt Conveyor Load Zone Most bulk material handlers will experience the challenge of excess spillage and dust in the load zone. This is especially true when a misaligned transfer point chute creates a flawed transition of material onto the receiving belt. Improper or off-center loading can further cause the belt to […]

Total Dust Management: A 360° Approach to a Safer, More Efficient Operation

Posted on May 21, 2020

As a bulk material handler, you want to process the most product in the least time in the safest, cleanest environment. A major obstacle to that goal is spillage and fugitive dust, which create lost product, more maintenance, lost time, and more hazards to both staff and the community. Conquering fugitive dust requires a complete […]

Conveyor Belt Support: The Right Under to Balance the Over

Posted on August 27, 2019

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

Posted on July 31, 2019

What Is It Really, and Why Do You Need One? 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 […]

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

Posted on June 20, 2019

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

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

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 […]
