Sometimes routine maintenance gets sidelined as “low priority” until it turns into unscheduled downtime. Turning this regular maintenance work over to Bulk Systems & Services, Inc. will free up your in-plant maintenance crew to focus on more important projects.

For more than 30 years, BSS has been a leader in providing solutions in bulk material handling. We can bring that leadership to your plant with regularly scheduled maintenance services.

Experienced technicians from BSS will provide regularly scheduled maintenance for all your conveyor belt systems. Let BSS be the single source for all of your conveyor belt systems and services.


Keeps your systems running “like new”. Regular maintenance attention keeps little problems from growing into big trouble. BSS technicians are trained to achieve maximum performance.

Keeps your staff flexible. Your maintenance crew won’t get bogged down with routine chores.  Instead, they will be available to tackle major projects. Our work is fast and efficient because BSS specializes in keeping maintenance costs and downtime low for conveyor belt systems.

Maintenance activities available from BSS for all bulk material handling systems include:

  • Periodic Inspection
  • Adjustment & alignment
  • Wear part replacement
  • Lubrication


Annual inspections and maintenance management programs provide regular-scheduled inspections and maintenance recommendations for the components of your bulk solids conveyor belt systems. Maintenance can be included in this program and performed either routinely, or upon the request of the customer.

*BSS Maintenance Program provides specialized technicians offering the expertise necessary to achieve high operating standards, keeping the system running at maximum productivity.

*Efficient and effective maintenance lowers cost for the total operation. Catastrophic failures can be avoided.

*Specific service requirements for conveyor belt technology systems will depend on systems design, capacity and output requirements, desired level of fugitive dust and spillage abatement, and client approved modifications or upgrades to increase reliability and performance.

*Periodic maintenance inspections with replacement of equipment prior to failure point will ensure long life and minimum spillage.

*A comprehensive survey of the entire belt conveyor system can be performed and provides measured levels of respirable dust, as well as fugitive dust and spillage. The report that is generated provides a document using value grids based on the results of the information gathered. The documentation provides the client with real information that can be used to prioritize needs and eliminate the risk of spending money in the wrong places, or at the very least to determine which area requires the most attention.

For nearly 20 years, Martin Engineering’s FOUNDATIONS™ Books and Workshops have taught industry personnel to operate and maintain clean and safe belt conveyors.

In 2009, Martin Engineering published FOUNDATIONS™ 4th Edition, the Practical Resource for Cleaner, Safer, More Productive Dust & Material Control. Available as a hardcover reference book or for internet download, FOUNDATIONS™ 4 provides a thorough discussion of topics and techniques for improving the performance of belt conveyors.

Martin Engineering also published the FOUNDATIONS™ for Conveyor Safety book to complement the FOUNDATIONS™ series of books and workshops in an effort to promote conveyor safety.  This collection of worldwide best practices together in a single resource demonstrates the methodology behind calculating the Return On Conveyor Safety™ so you can quantify the true value of conveyor safety.

Training to Match Your Needs


• Basic introduction to belt conveyors and their components, and conveyor safety considerations.


• In-depth look at methods to improve the safety, performance, and payback of belt conveyors, through controlling fugitive material and improving system efficiency.


• Two-day class which expands upon the Operations & Maintenance Training.  This hybrid course incorporates class room teachings, hands-on refreshers, and conveyor surveys with action plans.
