BEUMER Group provides Lafarge Zementwerke GmbH with conveying technology.

Lafarge Zementwerke GmbH in Mannersdorf, Austria, has commissioned BEUMER Group to install a conveying system for alternative fuels and raw materials. The cement producer benefits from an optimum price-performance ratio and state-of-the-art technology.

For an economical and sustainable operation, the Austrian plant Mannersdorfof Lafarge Zementwerke GmbH relies on plastic waste as an alternative fuel and raw material. When the old conveying system was irreparably damaged after a fire in June 2020, the owner commissioned BEUMER Group to supply a new and more powerful system. The order includes two pipe conveyors, which convey the material. The first conveyor has a diameter of 200 mm and a length of 87 m. Its conveying capacity amounts to ten tons per hour. The second pipe conveyor is 192 m long, has a diameter of 250 mm and a conveying capacity of 22 tonne per hour. The lifting heights amount to approx. 39 m and the maximum angle of inclination is 15 degrees. There are also three buffer bins and a weigh feeder. In addition to the delivery and installation, the BEUMER team also handles engineering and commissioning.

“As a team, we were able to convince the persons responsible of our solution,” says Andrea Prevedello, CEO of BEUMER Group Austria, satisfied. The proposed design of both pipe conveyors is developed and planned with foresight, so that the systems can be expanded as required and their conveying capacities increased without great effort. Lafarge Zementwerke GmbH has been working successfully with the system provider for years. The commissioning is scheduled for mid-April 2021.
