Cong Thanh Cement Plant Stock Joint Company has ordered bucket-elevators from Aumund Fördertechnik for the record-breaking height of 150m. They form part of the mega cement plant’s two production lines in the Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa. From there up to 12,000tpd of clinker is scheduled to be produced starting in 2012.
The conveying capacities of the bucket-elevators achieve up to 450tph. They will be supplied and installed this summer. Three out of a total of six bucket-elevators transport the clinker to a height of 150m, at which point it is fed to the preheater tower. The other three bucket-elevators will be employed for cement and raw meal transport. Also belonging to the scope of supply is a deep-drawn pan conveyor (KZB 1400/400/5) for clinker transport over a stretch of 126m to the clinker silos as well as two further deep-drawn pan conveyors which take care of clinker distribution to the silos. Four belt conveyors which are also being supplied then handle the task of clinker transport from the silos to the mill (1500tph) or to the export silos. They cover a distance of 120m and 220m respectively. The overall package is rounded off by a complete dedusting installation for the clinker silos and 14 filter units for the clinker transport.
