Re: Cement Silo Extraction Problem

What you need to monitor is the degree of dehydration of the gypsum during cement mill operation.

Re: Cement Silo Extraction Problem

We got the cement silo cleaned periodically and also replaced the air slides cloth which gets blocked or damaged because of poking over a period of time.

Also, we have provided Air blasters at appropriate locations to silo walls where material accumulations was observed while cleaning.

Because of gypsum dehydration lump formation and jamming problems are experienced.
