Sufficient Stock at Lower Cost

Radar level measurement - the sophisticated base for automated inventory control
Reducing the Cost of Carrying ‘Safety Stocks'
Keeping stock of bulk materials is a costly undertaking, but a necessity to ensure continuously ongoing production. Accurate level measurement can improve inventory reporting and reduce safety stocks of bulk solids, helping companies meet financial targets, reduce costs and increase sales.

How to Handle the Fire’s Feed

Effective Utilization of Alternative Fuels
During the most recent decades the utilization of (otherwise) waste materials and biomass as alternative fuels in the cement industry and power plants showed great growth figures. However, the low heat values of alternative fuels require larger handling and storage systems that are more flexible. This article shows, how these materials can be handled.

Down the Rathole

Discharge Aids
A cement and concrete manufacturer faced a problem with their storage bins for the raw material, which accumulated in the hopper forming a rathole seriously affecting production. To keep the whole of the material flowing they installed an air cannon system with some interesting specifications.

Whipped into Shape

By enlisting the services of a professional silo-cleaning crew from Martin Engineering, USA, the Commercial Acres RMC facility was able to have all three silos safely emptied and ready for repair in just ten working hours.
Silo Cleaning
When their silo walls bulged due to increased internal stresses, which resulted from material build-up within the silo, a North American Ready Mix Concrete plant looked for a possibility to empty the silos without the need to enter them.

Wood Pellet Handling
In the UK as well as in the rest of Europe biomass fuel is finding ever more attention. To enable the utilisation of such materials in power plants on a big scale they have to be supplied in consistent quality with regard to chemical and physical composition. This can be achieved by transforming them into pellets, with the additional benefit that systems for handling such materials already exist.

Eco-friendly Coal Storage

The storage system features a stacker/reclaimer and a belt conveyor with innovative CST-drives.
Covered Coal Storage
India based JSW Group, a USD 11 Billion conglomerate with commodities in different sectors of industry, has put up a 1200 MW power plant in Maharashtra state. For supplying the power plant with coal they installed a covered storage facility in the purpose built private port of Jaigarh.
