Mining and Mineral Processing Projects
During a plant outage, a cement customer found that their kiln lifting beam (or saddle) was buckling due to the compression forces between the kiln and the hydraulic cylinders used to lift the kiln off its trunnion rollers.
ZAP provided preliminary engineering and design for a vertical cement mill grinding system.
ZAP completed the engineering and design to modify an existing truck loadout system fed from a storage dome and from the F&I silo to meet Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations.
