In steelworks, plant shutdowns are practically impossible. For that reason, reliable wear protection in all plant components is a strategic investment in steelworks. The goal is to prevent the need for unscheduled repairs and to avoid production downtime.
TECHNO CAST is your competent partner for plant and equipment optimization with conveyor maintenance, wear protection, screening solutions. From raw material delivery, transport and storage to slag granulation and pig iron processing.
OUR PRODUCTS FOR YOUR INDUSTRY
Storage silos are cylindrical structures, typically 3 to 27 m in diameter and 10 to 90 m in height with the slipform and Jumpform concrete silos being the larger diameter and taller silos. They can be made of many materials. Wood staves, concrete staves, cast concrete, and steel panels have all been used, and have varying cost, durability, and airtightness tradeoffs. Silos storing grain, cement and woodchips are typically unloaded with air slides or augers. Silos can be unloaded into rail cars, trucks or conveyors.
Tower silos containing silage are usually unloaded from the top of the pile, originally by hand using a silage fork—which has many more tines than the common pitchfork; 12 vs 4—and in modern times using mechanical unloaders. Bottom silo unloaders are utilized at times, but have problems with difficulty of repair.
An advantage of tower silos is that the silage tends to pack well due to its own weight, except in the top few feet. However, this may be a disadvantage for items like chopped wood. The tower silo was invented by Franklin Hiram King.
We can assist you with the Maintenance of your Belt Conveyors
Whether you are experiencing premature wear of conveyor belts, product spillage or dust generation from an incorrectly sealed load zone, TECHNO CAST has the expertise to find solutions that will keep your operation running at peak productivity.
Efficient Wear Protection for Chutes & Discharge points
With our long experience in Wear Protection Solutions, we can provide you with efficient maintenance solutions to solve your problems with chutes and discharge points. Depending on some parameters, such as grain size, impact energy, temperature, speed, humidity, chutes can be subject to severe wear problems.
TECHNO CAST can help you identify the type of wear and provide the adequate solution. We have a comprehensive line of products and technologies available for each situation. We provide a variety of lining materials for chutes & discharge points subject to wear, abrasion impact .
We can also perform the installation of the adequate lining for to protect your existing chutes and discharge points or can provide you with prefabricated and lined chutes.
We can help you Improve the Flow of Material in your Silos & Hoppers & Transportation Pipes
The silos and hoppers in cement factories constantly undergo variations in parameters such as humidity, temperatures, density, and quality of materials. This results in large material flow variations which often lead to blockage / clogging of the silos and hoppers.
Our wear protection and sliding -promotion solutions installed on silo and hopper on walls and surfaces ensure impeccable operation. They thus avoid the need for manual cleaning or the need to use vibrators or air cannons to ensure continuous production without interruption.
When choosing the right materials for wear protection linings, our engineers take into account the specific geometry involved, for example that of a hopper or silo. Very often, we propose solutions composed of several materials which will be installed in the different parts of a silo (cylindrical, conical part.)
