Claudius Peters has supplied LafargeHolcim, Indonesia, with a bespoke pneumatic transport system capable of conveying distances of over 1100m.

Holcim’s new state-of-the-art Tuban plant has been designed for the highly efficient production of cement and is setting benchmarks in health and safety, low-cost production and environmental performance to Indonesia’s growth markets. The plant has a cement capacity of 3.4 million tpy and is located in Eastern Java, roughly 200 km from Surabaya.

The customer was invited to view a full-scale pneumatic conveying test system in the Claudius Peters Technikum at the group’s headquarters in Hamburg. Before the conveying equipment was supplied. The test conveyor successfully conveyed cement across a distance of over 1 km, proving the feasibility of a transport system of this scale – at 5.1 km it is the longest of its kind.

The conveying system supplied to Holcim not only covers long distances but, thanks to higher availability and lower investment costs, presents itself as a viable alternative to regular mechanical conveying systems.
