Lime Plant, Pennsylvania

Project Type: Lime Plant
Location: Pennsylvania
Capacities: 100-200 TPH

When a Pennsylvania lime producer was installing a new vertical twin-shaft kiln, it selected Rapat to supply a number of new channel-frame and enclosed belt conveyors. A majority of the belt conveyors were totally enclosed with scavenger drag conveyors, making them self-cleaning while keeping the dust inside the enclosures. The conveyors included many other custom features, including self-cleaning magnets, an automated product sampler, a telescoping loading spout, belt scales and a shuttle system. The project involved tight physical restraints, which required creative designs in order to get the equipment to fit.
