Essential Solutions for the Cement Industry
When construction activity picks up, the cement industry peaks. Optimal service and efficiency depend on your plant’s ability to supply product without delays or complications.
During production, your cement conveying system moves abrasive material that can create dust and wear out belts and other system components. Benetech solutions for material handling at cement plants help prevent problems before they occur to ensure maximum output, reduced maintenance and a safer, cleaner operation.
The Main Things That Matter to You
Sustaining high performance in the cement industry requires you to keep material moving throughout production, including crushers, preheaters, clinker coolers, kilns and storage silos. Whether spillage, carryback or belt mistracking, just one snag can bring business to a halt.
As a cement plant operator, you’re especially on alert for spillage and fugitive dust, which shorten the lives of your conveyor belts. Dust can both interfere with production and create hazards. Similarly, failing belt cleaners threaten the belt, idlers, trackers and ploughs. They also prevent the belt from achieving its design capabilities.
Specialists in Belt Cleaners at Cement Plants: Case in Point
Benetech understands what it takes to continue production at full capacity. We provide your plant the assessments and solutions for efficient material conveying systems and cement plant dust control.
One recent example of our precise problem-solving involved maintaining and cleaning the main conveyor belt for the kiln at one of Texas’ largest cement plants. The plant conveys material at 150 tons per hour 24 hours a day, shutting down once every three weeks for maintenance.
The plant had invested in a high-temperature belt to handle continuous ambient temperatures of 300°–325°F with peaks up to 750°F. After trying multiple brand belt cleaners, it could not find a cleaner system that lasted longer than two weeks without melting or burning. The failed cleaners damaged the belt, idlers, trackers and ploughs.
After meeting with management and inspecting the plant’s cement conveying systems, Benetech proposed applying its ADVANTEDGE hot pink belt cleaner for cement plants, which is designed for extreme conditions including high operating temperatures.
The plant added the ADVANTAGE scraper blade to its cement conveying system. Eight months after installation, the belt was still performing at high levels.
