Hazemag wins two crushing contracts for Brazilian cement plant

Published by
World Cement,

Hazemag & EPR GmbH has won a contract to provide Brennand Cimentos Group with two crushing plants for its new cement plant in Paraiba, Brazil. One of the crushing plants is for limestone and the other is for clay.

Limestone crushing

The limestone plant will crush 1500 tph to a final product size of 95% <90 mm and can also crush a second product of 95% <50 mm at a smaller throughput rate. The HAZtronic hydraulic impact apron control allows the operator to adjust from one product to another at the push of a button. In all, the limestone crushing plant consists of the following components:

  • A Hazemag apron feeder
  • A Hazemag roller screen VARIOwobbler® with adjustable gaps
  • A Hazemag primary impact crusher fitted with HAZtronic
  • A discharge belt conveyor

Clay crushing

The clay crushing plant will product a finished product of 0 – 90 mm at a rate of 300 tph. It works according to the principle of crushing in the horizontal material flow with a feeder breaker. The material is fed almost horizontally via a chain conveyor to the single roll crusher (feeder breaker), where it is crushed. The compact plant is simple to install, requiring neither a hopper or concrete foundations.

Both plants will be commissioned in Spring 2014.
