Siwertell ship unloader ordered for US cement imports
(Posted on 04/01/23)
Bruks Siwertell has secured a new Siwertell ship unloader contract from cement and ready-mix concrete producer, ARGOS USA. The unit will secure environment-friendly, dust-free cement and fly ash handling at the port of Houston, Texas.
“This latest contract continues a long-standing run of Siwertell systems ordered for cement handling operations in the US,” says Magnus Rundqwist, Director Global Bulk Sales, Bruks Siwertell. “Siwertell screw-type technology has a worldwide reputation for efficient, high-capacity, environment-friendly cement handling and this unit will deliver exactly that.
“Totally enclosed Siwertell unloaders draw material into the vertical screw conveyor using a unique inlet feeder, which operates below the surface of the material, eliminating the risk of spillage and minimizing dust creation. They also have low power-consumption demands,” Rundqwist notes.
Bruks Siwertell will also supply the complete screw conveyor system for transporting dry bulk material from the unloader to a storage dome, along with support structures and walkways.
“Our global capabilities mean that we were able to offer a competitive unloading solution, complete with conveyors and storage dome,” he adds. “Once operational, this state-of-the-art cement terminal will set a new industry standard.”
The Siwertell 490 M-type unloader offers a continuous rated cement handling capacity of 800t/h and is designed to accommodate vessels up to 65,000 dwt. It will be assembled on site and is planned for delivery in February 2024.
