Germany’s Schwenk Zement using pipe conveyor system by Beumer
Schwenk Zement has replaced its old drag chain conveyor line at its cement plant in Bernburg, Germany, with a modern pipe conveyor from Beumer Group.
Requiring a solution that would transport alternative fuels such as crushed plastic material, textiles and paper from the warehouse to the feeding system of the oven, the fully closed conveying system makes transporting bulk material more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
Maintenance costs are also considerably lower and the system can be optimally adapted to the ambient conditions.
Beumer Group has supplied and installed a system with a diameter of 200mm and a length of 230m. It conveys up to 15tonnes of material/hour.
Beumer was also responsible for the design of the system and the entire steel structure.
