The fourth edition of FOUNDATIONS, the seminal work on improving belt conveyors by controlling fugitive material, has been published by Martin Engineering. Subtitled The Practical Resource for Cleaner, Safer, More Productive Dust & Material Control, the new edition of the FOUNDATIONS Book is a 576-page hard-cover volume written for industries where the efficient handling of bulk materials is a key to productivity and profitability. The book provides useful information for personnel at all levels including plant managers, plant and conveyor engineers, safety and maintenance managers, and operators. Full of color photos and illustrations, the new edition covers subjects from the basic components of belt conveyors to advanced engineering calculations. It includes detailed discussions on topics like materials science, engineered chutes, specialty conveyors, tertiary cleaning systems, washboxes, and return-on-investment calculations. Increased emphasis is placed on safety, control of airborne dust, performance measurement, and project management. The book draws on the expertise of more than 30 other Martin Engineering professionals from around the world, with expertise in subjects including dust management, belt cleaning, material science, safety, and conveyor engineering.

Todd Swinderman joined Martin Engineering in 1979 as Conveyor Products Engineer before becoming General Manager, President, and CEO. His vision and leadership have focused on developing innovative solutions for bulk materials handling industries and expanding the company s capabilities around the world. Swinderman has been active in CEMA as an officer, committee chair, and as the chief editor and driving force behind the updated sixth edition of BELT CONVEYORS for BULK MATERIALS. Andy Marti has more than 20 years of experience in writing about the problems and solutions in bulk-materials handling. He has served as coordinating author and editor for all four editions of Martin Engineering s FOUNDATIONS Books on improving the performance of belt conveyors and transfer points. Marti holds a B.A. in Journalism from Central Michigan University and an M.A. in Communications Media from the University of Northern Iowa. Since joining Martin Engineering in 1981, Larry Goldbeck has traveled the world from Indonesia to Iceland, from Duluth to Delhi applying solutions to problems in the handling of bulk materials. He combines theoretical knowledge with 40 years of hands-on experience in the operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of belt conveyor systems. Goldbeck is the developer and lead instructor of Martin Engineering's FOUNDATIONS Workshops on Operating and Maintaining Clean and Safe Belt Conveyors. A self-described numbers guy, Daniel Marshall holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northern Arizona University. He joined Martin Engineering in 2000 as a Research and Development Engineer. In his career at Martin Engineering, Marshall has worked with every conveyor product that Martin Engineering has to offer. He is currently instrumental in the design and application of dust suppression and dust collection systems. Mark Strebel came to Martin Engineering after nine years experience as a test and results engineer and operations supervisor with a coal-fired public utility power plant. At Martin Engineering, he has focused on the development and application of technologies to improve bulk materials handling in the positions of R & D Manager, and Conveyor Products Manager, before assuming his current position. Strebel holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.B.A. from Bradley University.Review:
...a great deal of information on a number of issues that were not addressed in other texts that I have used, while also offering very practical application/solutions. --James M Gillis, Director of Mines Safety & Health, Michigan Technological University
