Krupp Fördertechnik delivers circular stacking/reclaiming system
Krupp Fördertechnik GmbH, Essen, Germany, has been awarded an order for a combined circular limestone stacking and reclaiming system from Alexandria Portland Cement Company (APCC) in Egypt. The system will have an outside diameter of 60 metres and will handle limestone with a lump size of 0 - 25 millimetres at a stacking and reclaiming rate of 700 tonnes per hour.
The contract scope includes the stacking conveyor, the stacker mounted on the central column, the side scraper supported from the central column, the discharge chute and the reclaim conveyor. Krupp Fördertechnik will also deliver the complete on-board electrical distribution and control system for the plant. A belt scale on the reclaiming conveyor controls material discharge flow.
The plant is located in an urbanised area and therefore covered with a dome shaped roof as well as dust extraction units at the transfer points. APCC already operates two longitudinal storage systems delivered by Krupp Fördertechnik and commissioned in 1977.
