Convey unit – Bangladesh

Van Aalst supplied a compact pneumatic conveying unit for a cement plant in Mongla, Bangladesh.

The convey unit is fitted with a 2-kettle system consisting of a primary transfer kettle for discharge and a secondary transfer kettle for the vent filter and conveying of the dedusting residue. This configuration was chosen due to the limited headroom underneath the silo. The convey unit receives product directly from the silo and pneumatically conveys fly ash to a grinding mill.

Convey unit data:

  • Type: VACU/50/E
  • Convey length: 170 m
  • Design capacity: 50 mtph
