Durable Loading Spouts Stand Up to Salt Air in Cayman Islands
Overview / Challenge
National Cement in Georgetown, Cayman Islands was experiencing downtime unloading the country’s portland cement from ships at port. Constant exposure to salt air makes the application tough.
- Handle up to 50 TPH of green sand & castings
- Efficiently break down sand lumps
- Improve casting quality
- Reduce cleaning issues
- Reduce workflow disruptions and unnecessary repairs to equipment
Carrier Vibrating Equipment recommended installing a vibrating mold dump conveyor that fed directly to a blank deck shakeout to perform an initial lump breakdown. The quality of the castings was addressed with the addition of a separate conveyor that gently moved the castings to Carrier’s patented Delta-Phase® shakeout where scalping helped remove final nuisance carry over sand to a lower counterflow pan.
