For most plant managers involved in bulk material handling, the ongoing condition of their conveyor systems is only one of many things they have to focus on. At the same time, it’s also one of the most critical because, if the conveyor shuts down, the whole operation often comes to a stop. The engineers and technicians on the MartinPLUS® Walk the Belt™ team have gone through extensive training on inspecting conveyor systems and assessing their performance toward the goal of maximizing productivity and reducing unscheduled downtime. In fact, it's what they do every single day.

These free inspections, which are scheduled on a regular basis, include a thorough review of the entire system, including the belts, cleaners, tracking, chutes, dust control and other components. Our technicians take the time to look for issues like carryback, mistracking, fugitive material, airborne dust, flow obstructions and more. And because every conveyor system is different, we customize our inspection plans to your particular equipment and application. After the inspection, we deliver a comprehensive report with photo documentation to you showing areas of concern, required maintenance and recommended preventive steps. As a result, you can take the actions necessary to improve the conveyor’s performance and extend the equipment’s service life, or have us take care of it for you. 

With the MartinPLUS® Walk the Belt™ program, you'll see substantial savings because ongoing maintenance extends service life and it simply costs less than unscheduled downtime. Plus, because our technicians are thoroughly trained and highly experienced in performing these inspections, it's safer than having it done by employees who may not be as familiar with the hazards that are often present.
