Austria: Lafarge Zement has ordered a new conveying system for raw materials and alternative fuel (AF) for its Mannersdorf cement plant from Germany-based Beumer Group. The system consists of two pipe conveyors. The first will be 192m long with a capacity of 22t/hr. While the second will be 87m long and have a conveying capacity of 10t/hr. The lifting heights will be approximately 39m and the maximum angle of inclination will be 15 degrees. The order also includes three buffer bins and a weigh feeder.
The system replaces the cement plant’s pre-existing conveyors, which were seriously damaged in a fire in June 2020. Beumer will be responsible for delivery, installation, engineering and commissioning of the new conveyors. Commissioning is scheduled for mid-April 2021.
