25.06.2018 Bucket elevator increases cement plant capacity in Oman

KoWey, Kamp-Lintfort, Germany – part of the Heko Group – has supplied a high-capacity chain bucket elevator to the Oman Cement Company (OCC) to replace an under-performing elevator from a different manufacturer. The engineering of the project planning proved to be extremely difficult. Several local appointments were needed to determine the exact dimensions of the building, the existing steel structure and consequently the available free space for the new and larger bucket elevator. It was required that production should continue during installation and any construction error caused in advance by inaccurate measurement or incorrect calculation could have led to unplanned, cost-intensive plant shutdowns.

The new system is a KCT50/710-320 central chain bucket elevator with a centre distance of 74.5m and a motor output of 110kW, conveying 250t/h of raw meal. KoWey had successfully delivered 14 previous projects to the same customer.
