Tegelen, Netherlands – Certain situations in powders, pellet and granulate handling require raw materials to be fed back vertically into the production process. Poeth has developed its new C-Conveyor specifically for these situations: it optimises the production capacity of recirculating conveying systems and minimises the risk of contamination.
Sarasota (FL), USA — Whether in the production of ceramic raw materials or the processing of these raw materials into ceramic products, moisture is the key to achieving the best quality of the final product. MoistTech offers optimized solutions for moisture measurement, which enable users to increase their profits, reduce material waste and downtime and improve overall customer satisfaction when processing ceramic raw materials.
BEUMER provides Turkish cement manufacturer with 13 bucket elevators and 6 apron conveyors
General contractor Bilim Makina has commissioned BEUMER to supply and mount at its cement plant in Elazig, eastern Turkey, 13 bucket elevators for the transport of cement, clinker and raw meal, as well as 6 apron conveyors and 13 silo discharge systems for clinker transport. The greenfield plant is expected to achieve a capacity of 5,000 tons per day. Sycs Insaar Cimento Madencilik is the user of this plant.
Two high-capacity belt bucket elevators with a centre distance of 133 meters each are included in the scope of supply. They are used for feeding the preheater tower with raw meal. Owing to the size of this plant, a conveying capacity of 500 tons per hour is achieved. High-quality BEUMER steel wire belts with a particularly high strength class ensure this capacity.
An Interview with Gregor Baumeister, Manager of the Palletizing and Packaging Systems Division, BEUMER Group:
Demand is more for solutions providers and not so much for product suppliers
The chemical industry is witnessing rapidly increasing requirements in the area of conveying and loading technology and in the fields of packaging and palletizing. BEUMER reacted to the increasing throughput rates in the chemical industry with its high-capacity palletizing system BEUMER paletpac® 2500. The use of a newly designed rotatable clamp system turns the filled bags into the desired packing pattern at an exceptional speed. This system enables the BEUMER palletizing technology to reach a top capacity of up to 2500 bags per hour.
Vom Bauboom in Indien profitiert auch die ACC Wadi, die zur Schweizer Holcim-Gruppe gehört. Der indische Zementhersteller hat deshalb in Wadi im südindischen Bundesstaat Karnataka die Leistung seines Werks auf 13.000 Tagestonnen ausgebaut. Dafür lieferte die BEUMER Group als Generalunternehmer schlüsselfertig ein Hochleistungs-Gurtbecherwerk vom Typ HGBW-HC 1250 x 175,3 m. Dieses ist mit einem Achsabstand von 175,3 Metern derzeit das höchste weltweit.
