Raw materials are transferred to bins with variable speed dosing scales. The flow of each is automatically controlled by an online analyser to ensure uniformity of chemical composition.

An airlift system is used to propel the raw meal from the silo up the 135 m, five-stage, two-string preheater tower, equipped with stack gas analysers at the chimney and at the entrance of the kiln.
