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

Posted on July 31, 2019

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

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 […]

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

Posted on January 24, 2019

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 […]

Improving Safety in Material Handling Operations: Dust Mitigation for Preventing Accidents & Injuries

Posted on September 5, 2017

Airborne dust creates a number of hazards for bulk material handlers. Under certain conditions, combustible dust can ignite and explode. Fugitive dust also can endanger personal health as inhalable dust (larger, heavier particles) or respirable dust (smaller, finer particles). Yet another peril posed by fugitive dust is possible accidents and injuries. Excessive dust build-up at […]
