Cement Terminal

This cement terminal is designed to receive cement by railcar, storage it, and then load it into trucks.

The railcar unloading system consists of air gravity conveyors that discharge into a bucket elevator. The bucket elevator discharges the cement into either storage bins. Screw conveyors and drag chain conveyors were also considered for the railcar unloading system.

The truck loading system consists of bin aeration bottoms that feed into air gravity conveyors. The air gravity conveyors feed into a loading spout equipped with a fabric filter. A two directional positioner is included to reduce the time of positioning trucks.
