AIRMATIC has a wide range of products to assist you in your silo clean-out! Check out some of the options below:

  • The MARTIN® HD Bin Whip Tool allows our trained Technicians to dislodge stubborn materials from outside the vessel, preventing hazardous confined space entry and damage to the vessel’s lining, walls, or bottom. The process continues safely and efficiently until the vessel is fully empty or meets Customer expectations/requirements.
  • A hydraulic-driven, remotely-controlled drilling rig, the MARTIN® Bin Drill Tool opens a flow channel through tough clogs of material. The powerful action of the Bin Drill bores through blockages, clearing a path at depths up to 150′!
  • The MARTIN® Acoustic Cleaner Tool is a compressed-air driven Sonic Horn that produces a range of fundamental frequencies with alternating sound waves to cause dry particulate deposits to resonate and become fluidized, allowing material to flow freely to the discharge.
  • The MARTIN® Chunkbuster Cartridge Tool safely and effectively dislodges blockages using the powerful force of expanding CO2 gas. It uses non-explosive generators to cause rapid expansion of CO2 gas to fracture chunks and compacted materials to open the discharge and restore flow.

AIRMATIC Introduces MARTIN® Pin Latch Belt Cleaner

AIRMATIC is excited to introduce the new Pin Latch Belt Cleaner manufactured by its Core Product Supplier, MARTIN ENGINEERING!

MARTIN®’s new Pin Latch Secondary Belt Cleaner is a tungsten carbide-tipped Secondary Cleaner that slides in and out for service without requiring any tools. The design features a square, tabbed mainframe with segmented blades connected by a simple pin mechanism, allowing easy access and quick blade replacement by semi-skilled personnel.

Currently available in India and South Africa, the new pin latch design provides adjustable tension for varying conditions, such as belt speed, material being conveyed and belt cleaner position relative to the head pulley. It will handle belt speeds up to 1,000 feet per minute (5.1 meters per second), and the versatile unit accommodates belt rollback. The carbide tip is acid- and abrasion-resistant, and the assembly is well-suited for use on belts with mechanical splices, smoothly adapting to and riding over the splices without damaging the splice, belt or blade.

“The maintenance-friendly design of the new Martin® Pin Latch Cleaner is engineered for a wide range of global applications,” commented Martin Engineering South Africa Sales Manager Pieter Opperman. “It can drastically reduce downtime for service or replacement, since no alignment or setting of the blade is required. Inventory is reduced to a one-part blade and buffer, without bolts, nuts or other fasteners,” he observed. Opperman said that blade replacement can be performed with a greatly reduced risk of errors, and the narrow blades conform readily to conveyor belt profiles. “The quick replacement of this design means shorter shutdowns and reduced maintenance time,” he continued. “That translates to more productive and profitable operations, with personnel able to concentrate more on core activities.”

The MARTIN Pin Latch Cleaner delivers excellent cleaning performance with quicker blade recovery, and provides the versatility to adjust blade performance to match a wide range of application characteristics. It is considered a preferred upgrade for Martin® SQC2 and SC16 Secondary Cleaners.

“Matching the blade performance to the unique conditions of a specific application is a key to maximizing efficiency,” Opperman added. “And servicing these units simply requires sliding the pin out and removing the old blades by hand. New blades are slipped onto the mainframe, and the pin is re-inserted through the new blades. That’s all there is to it.”
