Founded in 1944 and based in Neponset, Illinois, Martin is a global supplier of systems designed to make the handling of bulk materials cleaner, safer, and more efficient. Martin products include belt cleaning solutions, transfer point solutions, dust management solutions, air cannon solutions, vibration solutions, railcar unloading solutions, and safety solutions. Martin also provides expert assistance with bulk material handling issues and problems.


Belt Cleaning Solutions

High-performing belt cleaners make conveyor systems safer and more productive. Martin offers belt cleaners that work with all belt sizes and speeds and in the most challenging and unique environments, such as on conveyor systems where there’s minimal space around the head pulley. Martin’s specialty belt cleaners include conveyor belt washing systems, belt brush cleaners, food-grade belt scrapers, water cleaners, and high-temperature cleaners, all engineered for challenging conditions and unusual materials.

Air Cannons

When the most difficult-to-move bulk materials build up in kilns, silos, bins, hoppers, chutes and other equipment and flow stops due to obstructions and ratholes, the best way to keep it moving is with an air cannon. Martin offers the industry’s most complete line of air cannons, so you are sure to find one that fits your needs – whether your application requires powerful bursts of air every few minutes to keep products moving, or the application requires shorter, more frequent air bursts. Martin also offers multi-valve products that discharge at up to five delivery points through pipes or hoses to accommodate tight spaces.


For many years, the necessity to store material in bulk has created a problem: how to get it out of the storage vessel. Typical problems include bridging, ratholing, clinging, and arching. One safe and efficient solution to these problems is the industrial vibrator, invented by Edwin F. Peterson in 1944, and the start of Martin Engineering. Today, Martin manufactures vibrators to prevent bin and hopper flow problems as well as rotary electric vibratory drives for industrial processing equipment.

Transfer Point Solutions

Transfer points are critically important to the efficiency and productivity of any conveyor system. They are also highly complex from an engineering perspective. Martin’s transfer point products are designed to be effective over a long work life, even under the most demanding conditions. The benefits they deliver include better efficiency, improved safety, reduced wear and tear on equipment, fewer dust issues, and fewer stoppages for cleaning.

 Dust Management and Containment Solutions

Martin dust management solutions are the most effective in the business. They include filtration products that pull airborne dust out of the air and return it safely to the material stream, as well as equipment that contains dust at the source and solutions that suppress dust after it’s in the air. Keeping dust under control delivers multiple benefits, including healthier work conditions, zero risk of explosion, less time spent on cleanup and maintenance, and better environmental compliance.

Safety Solutions

Conveyor injuries typically cost businesses millions of dollars annually. Many injuries are caused by material spilling off the belt or workers getting caught in pinch or nip points. Fugitive dust is also a risk to workers’ health. And, under certain conditions, airborne dust can ignite and cause devastating explosions. Martin has decades of experience in products that move bulk material safely and protect workers. Improve safety, lower your costs, improve productivity, and stay in compliance with OSHA requirements. Invest in safety.

Railcar Unloading Systems

Take the hassle out of unloading bulk materials like grain or cement from railcars. Use Martin products to make bulk solids flow more efficiently through the unloading gate. Martin railcar connectors, railcar openers, and industrial vibrators eliminate the risk of sending a worker under the gate to manually loosen obstructions and result in less need for cleanup and faster unloading times. Key benefits include higher productivity, improved profits, and reduced waste.
