21.09.2020 Germany’s tallest bucket elevator

BEUMER Group, Beckum, Germany, has successfully delivered, installed and commissioned what is believed to be the tallest bucket elevator in Germany at HeidelbergCement in Schelklingen near Ulm. The order is part of a project by thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, with the objective to extensively modernise the cement plant and comply with the new restrictions concerning pollutant emissions.

As part of the thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions project, a new preheater tower was built at HeidelbergCement's Schelklingen site, where a BEUMER bucket elevator is used to feed raw meal to the kiln. This high-capacity belt bucket elevator has a centre distance of 131.8m and, with a bucket width of 800mm, achieves an output of 400t/h. The installed steelcord belt transfers tractive forces of up to 200t.

HeidelbergCement and the Schelklingen plant attach high importance to noise and dust control. BEUMER, with 4500 employees worldwide and annual sales of some €950 million, therefore decided the use of a high-capacity belt bucket elevator was necessary, which is characterised by extremely smooth running and reliable operation.

Following modernisation, HeidelbergCement’s Schelklingen plant now meets latest regulations regarding pollutant emissions
