The manufacture of cement combines a variety of raw ingredients such as limestone, clay, or shale. These raw materials are extracted from the quarry crushed to a very fine powder and then blended in the correct proportions. The resulting raw mix is fed into a cement kiln which heats them to extremely high temperatures of about 1400 C to 1500 C.
Bulk material handling equipment, such as a rotary feeder in a cement plant, is used to transfer these raw materials and mix between points in the production process. Because of the abrasiveness of the material and the extreme high temperatures of the process, slide gates, flap gates, and other cement equipment must be of exceptional durability.
Meyer Industrial has the engineering expertise, knowledge, and range of products to provide the right machines used in the cement industry. Meyer Industrial valves serve as airlock transition points, sealing pressurized systems against loss of air or gas while maintaining the material flow between vessels with different pressure. Meyer Industrial valves are also widely used as volumetric feeders for metering materials at precise flow rates from bins, hoppers, or silos into conveying or processing systems. The Flapgates are designed for high-pressure applications and standard temperatures. These units are an alternative to rotary valves. In addition to our rotary valves and double-flap gates, Meyer Industrial screw pumps provide a large material throughput capacity utilizing a low-pressure, high-velocity air supply. They are a rugged, dust-free replacement for many more fragile styles of pneumatic feeders. Thanks to a low profile it is an ideal feeder for applications with restricted headroom. The screw pumps are designed for high pressure, high temperature, and highly abrasive material.
