HammerTek: Ready-Mix Plants Prevent Wear and Downtime with Deflection Elbows

Severna Park (MD), United States – Concrete Plants, Inc. (CPI) has provided turnkey batch plant equipment, service and parts to ready-mix and precast concrete plants from Maine to South Carolina since 1974. For many years, customers were resigned to abrasive materials wearing through the elbows of their pneumatic conveying system elbows until 2001, when CPI began specifying HammerTek deflection elbows, in which abrasive materials are prevented from impacting the elbow wall.

BEUMER Group develops Screw Weigh Feeders for precise and controlled Feeding of alternative Fuels

Beckum, Germany To reduce the use of expensive primary fuels like coal and oil in the energy-intensive cement production, operators focus increasingly on alternative fuels and raw materials. BEUMER Group offers tailor-made systems for the entire material flow chain – from receiving and unloading the delivery vehicle to storing, sampling and conveying the materials. For precise and controlled feeding, the system provider has now developed a screw weigh feeder suitable for a variety of materials.  Continue reading BEUMER Group develops Screw Weigh Feeders for precise and controlled Feeding of alternative Fuels

BEUMER Group: Belt Apron Conveyors for reliable and cost-efficient Transport of Cement Clinker

Beckum, Germany From a kiln cooling system to silos: the safe and economical transportation of hot materials like clinker is crucial in cement plants. The material can have extremely high temperatures of 500 to 800 degrees Celsius. Reliable plant operation requires a robust conveying system. The BEUMER Group supports cement manufacturers with system solutions tailored for this industry, with apron conveyors for example. A special variant offered is the belt apron conveyor (GSZF): using a belt instead of a chain as the traction element allows higher speeds and a slimmer design while still delivering the same level of performance. The GSZF is therefore particularly suitable for modernisations, as can be seen with the Turkish cement manufacturer Göltas Cemento. Continue reading BEUMER Group: Belt Apron Conveyors for reliable and cost-efficient Transport of Cement Clinker

Reliable Energy Supply: Efficient Conveying, Storage and Dosing of alternative Fuels for Cement and Lime Plants

By A. Eichelmeyer – Cement manufacturing is particularly energy-intensive. In order to reduce the use of expensive primary fuels like coal and oil, cement plant operators focus increasingly on Alternative Fuels and Raw materials (AFR).  Continue reading Reliable Energy Supply: Efficient Conveying, Storage and Dosing of alternative Fuels for Cement and Lime Plants

Martin Engineering: Conveyor Belt Generates Power for Air Cannons to control Build-Up

Neponset (IL), United States – The Ash Grove Cement plant in Louisville, Nebraska produces approximately 1.1 million tons per year. In order to maintain production levels, efficient material movement via conveyor is critical. The issue is especially acute when running wet raw material at the quarry. Over time, operations personnel noted accumulation in specific locations that threatened to slow material movement – particularly at transfer points – which required manual intervention on a near-constant basis. Continue reading Martin Engineering: Conveyor Belt Generates Power for Air Cannons to control Build-Up
