Conveying Cement & Clinker
Cement clinker is produced by heating to high temperature a mixture of substances such as limestone and shale. When cement clinker is ground with a specified amount of gypsum, it will produce Portland cement or when ground with specified amounts of gypsum and other materials it will produce blended cements.
Slipstick Conveyors have found their way into this process replacing buckets or belts. The Slipstick can handle this very hard and abrasive duty, highlighting other qualities of this conveyor including low abrasion, dust tight, low maintenance, and the ability to meter the feed downstream.
