Mantenha o material seguindo seu fluxo, do início ao fim!

Na Martin Engineering, nos dedicamos a ajudá-lo a aumentar os lucros mantendo seu produto fluindo com o menor tempo de parada não programada possível. Nossos canhões de ar liberam disparos cronometrados de ar comprimido que eliminam acúmulos e obstruções em silos de processo sem danificar seus equipamentos. Também oferecemos bicos inovadores que podem ser facilmente removidos pelo lado externo para limpeza ou substituição sem que seja necessário remover todo o canhão de ar, além de conjuntos de válvulas e controles eletrônicos de alta qualidade.

Além de canhões de ar, somos líderes globais na fabricação de vibradores industriais, que são eficazes em uma ampla gama de aplicações, especialmente aquelas envolvendo materiais a granel com partículas de tamanho pequeno ou situações em que o equipamento não pode ser instalado permanentemente, como a caçamba de um caminhão basculante.

Ao eliminar obstruções e acúmulos que restringem o fluxo, sua operação pode processar mais material com maior rapidez, gerando vários resultados positivos, como: 

  • Mais lucros - Manter o material fluindo com máxima eficiência e máximo rendimento significa mais receitas e mais lucros.
  • Maior eficiência - Eliminar as obstruções e o acúmulo melhora substancialmente o rendimento sem aumentar significativamente os custos de mão de obra ou de energia.
  • Condições de trabalho mais seguras - Os trabalhadores não precisam mais entrar em contêineres ou embaixo de portas de descarregamento para eliminar obstruções manualmente.
  • Menor desgaste do equipamento devido ao uso - A limpeza e a desobstrução manual de materiais requer o uso de ferramentas que, com o passar do tempo, danificam o equipamento, enquanto os canhões de ar utilizam disparos de ar inofensivos.
  • Tempo de parada menor - Primeiramente, uma vez que o canhão de ar dispara em intervalos cronometrados, o material não tem possibilidade de se acumular e, portanto, não é necessário desligar o equipamento para remover as obstruções.

Air Cannons Move Sticky Coal From Bins
To keep up with the steel mill’s around the clock, seven days-per-week schedule, the railcar dump must provide 3,000 tons of coal per day, every day. But the operation was at the mercy of the handling properties of the coal. Coal with higher moisture content, material density or size ranges would hang up on the walls of the receiving bin below the car dumper.

Sequencing Air Cannons Clear Kiln
This plant is a new, state-of-the-art facility, but designed without air cannons on the pre-heater tower. Consequently, material flow through the pre-heater was subject to blockages, requiring excessive (and potentially risky) labor. Martin installed air cannons, set to fire in a sequence starting from the kiln feed shelf and working up, alternating side to side, until all the cannons have fired and then starts over.

Martin® Air Cannons Require Less Maintenance
To preserve the life of the air cannon’s piston and sealing o-rings, oil was added to the air supply. But as the air cannons would discharge the oil would collect on the filter, causing the filter to plug or bind. Filter efficiency would go down, which in turn reduced plant output and increased maintenance problems. The plant installed Martin® XHV Retrofit Valves on the air cannons.
