Reliable conveying of abrasive aggregates

Published: 25 October 2012 - Michelle Lea

Problem: The Lafarge Barnstone Works in Nottinghamshire required conveying equipment to feed and transport product through a new aggregate blending unit. The company, who produces building materials, needed a system that could offer high levels of reliability.

Solution: Guttridge has supplied a suite of conveying equipment to Lafarge. Specified to ensure maximum reliability for highly abrasive process streams, the six Hi-Load bucket elevators and the Kleenbelt belt conveyor incorporate sensors for upset detection as well as a number of features that streamline maintenance.

The bucket elevators are used to vertically lift different streams – cement, aggregate, sand and associated mixtures – at various points in the process. The belt conveyor is a completely enclosed system that transports a cement and sand mixture some distance, from a vibratory screen to the elevator feeding the mixer.

Adam Elmes, project manager for Lafarge, said: “All the systems came on stream quickly and easily and are working well, but we’re especially impressed with the Kleenbelt.”
