Material Handling

Icy winters do not paint a pretty picture for business. Bringing with them serious material handling problems, these long, cold seasons can leave companies in the dark all winter long. Without effective anti-icing and deicing, material handling operations will come to a halt. Conveyor belts get stuck, switches freeze, and coal bonds to chutes, truck beds, and railcars. Fines carryback accumulates, belts come out of alignment, supply is interrupted, and the number of accidents multiplies.

Enough about the problems; you know them already. Midwest’s material handling solutions are as effective on granite and other minerals as they are on coal. Tested, proven, and enhanced for more than three decades, our winter operating agents increase safety, eliminate coal supply interruption, lower costs, and reduce the need for weather-related maintenance.
