Estanda has supplied Lafarge-Holcim’s cement plant in Nigeria, Africa, with new designs for more efficient dip tubes.
The project, which was for the supply of the dip tubes and supervision during their assembly, included an initial stage of total component redesign, modifying dimensions and materials used by the client to adapt to the technical recommendations provided by Estanda.
The proposed solution will prevent the wear and low durability that the previous dip tubes had suffered from. The project was developed on stages 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the preheater cyclones with the installation of refractory steels resistant to temperatures and abrasion.
