Material Buildup? Blow it away!

With the new air cannon network in place, the Louisville plant has been able to significantly reduce the need for water blasting. Material now flows more efficiently, and maintenance personnel have drastically reduced the man-hours that were spent on manual removal.
Flow Activation
An American cement producer faced severe problems of material buildup in his preheater. Manual hydro-lancing meant process disruptions. With a new air cannon network now in place, the need for water blasting has been significantly reduced, material flows more efficiently, and maintenance personnel have drastically reduced the man-hours that were spent on manual removal.

Dry Bulk Terminals Characteristics

Ports & Terminals
Due to the high demand for energy and steel new dry bulk terminals will have to be built and existing terminals are being forced to expand. Because of the absence of a comprehensive and detailed design method of dry bulk terminals, designs are mostly based on rules of thumb and practical experiences. In this paper 49 terminals are studied using various references, like annual reports, port authorities’ information and Google Earth, to characterize a terminal.
