Martin Engineering has gained the EAC Mark of Conformity for the export of conveyor products and material flow aids, including the company’s full line of impact cradles, belt cleaners, sealing systems, air cannons and sonic horns. The certification enables the Martin Engineering business units in Germany and Russia to offer the company’s entire range of products to the Customs Union and ensures that the equipment is compliant with the EAC’s strict safety and quality standards. Through this, countries in the region will be provided with safe and efficient components for improving productivity, controlling fugitive material and cleaning accumulation chutes, silos, kilns and ductwork in a variety of material handling applications such as mining, coal, cement, biomass, aggregate and fly ash.
According to Russian Division Branch Manager, Oleg Meister, “The EAC Mark of Conformity is essential in order to sell and install bulk material handling components in the three member countries. It will be instrumental in assuring ready availability and reasonable lead times.”
A key focus of the EAC Mark of Conformity is reducing workplace risk, assuring the ‘safety of machinery and equipment’, particularly when ‘used in an explosive atmosphere’, such as the cramped spaced filled with volatile dust that are regularly found in bulk handling systems.
“Effective flow systems are essential to the work of trying to improve the operations of bulk material handling,” Meister concluded. “This certification allows us to offer more complete and versatile solutions that could help make systems across the region safer, while at the same time reducing operating costs.”
