Cement Silo Aeration Solution:

Moving Cement Powder In Concrete Batch Plants

Cement Silo AerationSITUATION:
“I can’t get cement powder to flow freely from my cement silo.”

EXPLANATION:
Ready mixed concrete batch plants take the basic components needed to form concrete, i.e. sand, rock and cement powder, and batch them together for loadout into concrete trucks. Concrete is used as a versatile construction material and there are literally tens of thousands of batch plants around North America.

Unfortunately the nature of cement powder is that it packs when in a storage condition, making it very difficult if not impossible to flow freely when needed. In consistent flow of cement powder threatened the quality of the concrete mix and the efficiency of the batch plant. Off spec concrete results in considerable waste and quite possibly expensive re-work.

SOLUTION:
Bin vibrators were considered but the fugitive vibration caused damage to peripheral equipment such as piping joints and process instrumentation. The installation of the Evasser from Monitor Technologies LLC proved to be the solution.

Clever placement of several Evasser aeration devices, recommended by Monitor Technologies application specialist and technical support personnel, kept the cement powder fluidized and flowing when required. This prevented the cement from packing, eliminating the root cause of the problem. The Evasser bin aerator operates silently from air supplied by the process plant air source so wear on the structure was not a factor.

Give Monitor Technologies a call and let us put our creative solutions to work for you!
