Flying Cement, a member of the Lahore-based conglomerate, Flying Group of Industries, is planning to increase its production considerably by building an 8,000tpd (tonnes per day) kiln line. AUMUND Fo¨rdertechnik GmbH won the order for two of the main bucket elevators required to achieve this project, those for the raw meal silo and the heat exchanger, as well as two pan conveyors for clinker. The complete supply package from AUMUND Fo¨rdertechnik to Flying Cement also includes 13 AUMUND silo discharge gates.
Of the two AUMUND belt bucket elevators to be supplied, the one to feed raw meal to the silo is designed with a centre distance of 87.6m and will reach a capacity of around 650tph (tonnes per hour). The other AUMUND belt bucket elevator will also have a capacity of 650tph. Its centre distance is 115m and it will take raw meal to the heat exchanger. Flying Cement will use an AUMUND KZB 1200/400 pan conveyor to transport clinker to the main silo. This conveyor will be approximately 115m long, with a lift of 43.5m, and a capacity of up to 580tph. The off-spec silo will be served by an AUMUND KZB 1200/400 pan conveyor which is 42m long and has a capacity of 580tph.
Whilst the bucket elevators will be dispatched to Pakistan at the beginning of August, the pan conveyors will be supplied in a second consignment at the end of this year.
