Steel silo modernisations and new pneumatic conveying systems for Aalborg Portland A/S

Chalk and grey kiln dust will together with calcined clay be used to substitute clinker for CO2 reduction.

Planning in an existing building is always a special challenge. For this purpose, Claudius Peters Projects created a 3D scan on site, furthermore a material test was carried out at the technical centre, which led the customer to decide in favour of a C-Lever® flow meter system. Another important requirement from the customer was the implementation of an existing pressure vessel system as well as ensure continuous operation of the cement mills during assembly.

In addition to the modernization of the Chalk steel silo aeration, discharge & distribution system, Claudius Peters Projects GmbH will also supply:

  • 4 pc. Well proven CPP X-200 Pumps with 2 integrated hopper dedusting filter.
  • 4 pc. Energy saving “Hybrid Rotary Blowers” with piping.
  • 1 pc. Set of Silo aeration panels with separate aeration blower.
  • 3 pc. CPP Flow Control Gates PCD.
  • 2 pc. Dosing rotary vales.
