cement transport problem through belt

respected seniors.

we faced sometimes problems in transporting cement through belt conveyor to cement silo belt conditions are ok but sometimes observing that cement not properly move on belt but slip on back end drum. is there any cement quality or compositions factors which affect cement flow.

re cement transport problem through belt

Hello Armankhan,

I would think that the degree of aeration of the cement as it falls on the belt would have a lot to do with its flowability and of course the slope of the belt and degree of vibration. Also the amount of flyash in the cement, decreased fineness and use of certain grinding aids could increase the flowability of the cement.

It sounds like a cement powder pump would be a better option than a conveyor belt in your case.

       Pipe conveyor is better than belt conveyor for cement material transport.  

       Variation in cement blaine my caused back flow of material on slope point of belt.

re cement transport problem through belt

Dear mr. Aman

The back spillage of cement may occure while discharging through chute to belt conveyor to avoid this pl. check the chute if chute is discharging material vertically over belt in that case material may rush in all directions. so chute should be inclined enough (45 to 55 deg ) to belt and have some horizontal lip.Besides this use modular skirt system in chute. hope this may solve ur. problem
