BEUMER Group supplied and installed a single-source solution based on its pipe conveyor technology

To improve energy efficiency at its cement plant, OYAK Group-owned Denizli Çimento Sanayii TAŞ in western Anatolia, Turkey, decided to introduce alternative fuels (AFs) to fire the preheater, the calciner and the main burner. To store, mix and convey AFs of different composition, the cement producer opted for a tailor-made AF system from BEUMER Group. At the core of this solution are two pipe conveyors. These completely-enclosed conveying systems ensure environmentally friendly, dust-free and low-energy transport of fuels as well as the required raw materials, using a minimum level of personnel. The new system has been running since January 2017 and has proven to be a particularly efficient and economical solution.
