Lime Plant, Wisconsin

Project Type: Lime Plant
Location: Wisconsin
Capacities: 350 TPH

A lime plant required a new material handling system after adding plant capacity and installing a high-efficiency preheater lime kiln. Rapat was contracted on this fast-track design/build project to supply 13 belt conveyors, including support structures, transfer towers and a chain bucket elevator to transfer limestone between the storage piles, the screening building, the preheater kiln and the storage silos. A coal-handling system was also installed to feed the firing building. The compressed timeline of this project required Rapat to work very closely with the engineering firm and general contractor. Due to Rapat’s project management, the budget was met, and the project was completed three weeks early.
