Material Buildup? Blow it away!

With the new air cannon network in place, the Louisville plant has been able to significantly reduce the need for water blasting. Material now flows more efficiently, and maintenance personnel have drastically reduced the man-hours that were spent on manual removal.
Flow Activation
An American cement producer faced severe problems of material buildup in his preheater. Manual hydro-lancing meant process disruptions. With a new air cannon network now in place, the need for water blasting has been significantly reduced, material flows more efficiently, and maintenance personnel have drastically reduced the man-hours that were spent on manual removal.

Weighing in Motion

The BS143 model weighs three idlers on an inner frame that is supported by four load cells. This makes it the most accurate belt scale from Rice Lake Weighing Systems and is particularly qualified for higher capacities and high belt speeds.
Belt Scales
Established in 1946 as a repair shop for scales, mainly from the prevalent dairy industries, Rice Lake extended its portfolio with weighing equipment, like belt scales. Today they offer all kinds of scales all over the world. The article describes how to optimize a belt scale system by choosing the right indicator for particular application.

Residuals Removal at Maritza E1

Since 2006 AES has been replacing one of the three power stations at its Maritza power plant with a new build comprising two blocks with a power output of 300 MW each.
Tube Conveyor Systems
With the reconstruction of the power station Maritza East 1, the residual materials disposal system has also been reorganized. This project was contracted to Takraf in 2006. The heart of the residual material transportation system is a 4.5 km tube conveyor that follows the course of an old railway line and was realized in cooperation with ContiTech.
