Clinker transport and storage

Painstaking design and configuration of clinker storage and transport plays a decisive role in overall plant economics. They are of special significance and are core AUMUND competences. Storage type is determined by local conditions and required storage capacities. Various construction methods are feasible and employable, depending on installation design:

> Large capacity silo
Cylindrical concrete or stell silos
> Covered circular storage
Covered circular storage with MOLEX®
> Storage hall with inner cone

According to the situation on site and the resulting angle of inclination, deep drawn pan conveyors (types KZB or KZB-Q), bucket apron conveyors (type BZB) or chain bucket elevators are used for clinker storage feeding. Depending on the necessary conveying capacity either the simple or the double bucket elevator (type BWZ-D) is utilised.

Discharge from clinker storage is performed in many cases by the silo discharge device type SDG (gravity discharge). The material is transferred to a downstream deep drawn pan conveyor. Where residue-free emptying of a circular storage is necessary AUMUND employs its MOLEX®.
