2848 – HANDLING AND STOCKYARD SYSTEM 600t/h FOR GRAIN TERMINAL
SOLUTION FOR BULK MATERIALS, BELT CONVEYORS, BUCKET ELEVATORS, TRIPPER CARS, HOPPERS
Design, supply, transport, assembly and commissioning of mechanical works for the extension of the lifting and transport system of bulk grains from dock by belt or trucks to be stored inside the existing warehouses. Implementation according to Atex standards. Line capacity of 600 t/h of cereals.
- belt conveyor capacity 600 tph
- belt bucket elevator height 36,5 m
The project consists of a complete handling and storage system to be installed in the existing warehouses of grain terminal in Ravenna, Italy. The system includes a truck unloading station, receiving hopper, bag type dust-suppression filters, belt extractor for material recover from hopper and to feed one 600tph bucket elevator which transports the material to a set of belt conveyors to feed either the existing conveyor lines or to transfer the material onto the new tripper conveyor, which will be installed in height inside an existing building to stock grain, cereals and flours.
Also this plant has been designed and fully comply with directive Atex 94/9/EC regulations for equipment installed in potentially explosive atmosphere.
To reduce potentially dangerous dust spillage, each conveyor will be provided with cover hoods for the whole length and pocket filters on both loading and discharge sections.
The rated capacity of conveyor system is 1,200tph for a total storage capacity of about 15,000t inside the building (covered area). The peculiarity is that the system is almost entirely installed underground, in view of a quarry expansion project: a new vertical tunnel of height 150m and diameter 4m, chamber and horizontal tunnel have been excavated. Inside the underground chamber one hopper for limestone vertical receiving, feeder and crushing mill will be installed.
After being reduced in size, material will be transported via belt conveyor system to the outside.
In addition to that, the belt conveyor which transports limestone to the outside is plaincurved with a radius of 600m, to fit the geometry of the excavation.
On the outside, one transfer point will be installed between conveyors which allows the second (inclined) conveyor to form limestone stockpile.
