Deuna Zement GmbH to use AFs to improve plant efficiency

Umweltdienste Bohn GmbH, based in Alsfeld, was commissioned, working closely with the Beumer Group, to supply Deuna Zement with AFs and will build a processing plant on Deuna’s premises providing a single-source solution for the efficient conveying and feeding of the materials.

A pipe conveyor is at the core of the system. The enclosed system ensures environmentally safe, emission-free, and low-energy transport of the material.

The project also includes the supply of three feeding hoppers with a screw conveyor, belt conveyor, rotary starscreens, scales, with additional electronics and controls. Commissioning is scheduled for February 2018.

Umweltdienste Bohn receives comprehensive support from Beumer, which can be contacted at all times.

"The client has opted for us because we supply the entire system from one source," says Tomas Hrala, Project Manager at Beumer Group. "Our know-how and our tailor-made systems permit us to offer optimum assistance."
