Soda Ash Loud Out

Soda Ash Load-Out

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.

Cement Plant Preheater Tower Retrofit

ZAP was contracted to make a structural analysis of an existing four stage concrete preheater tower at a cement plant. Engineering services included developing a design basis and determining what load cases would be applied to the tower.

Roof Access

Roof Access Platform

Plant maintenance requested improved access to a large duct’s slide gate above the roof level. A complex geometry was required to provide a platform that was supported by exterior building framing to avoid placing any load on existing roof trusses and yet account for operation of an adjacent roof hatch and maintain access to the slide gate components.

Power Line

Power Line Tower Assessment

A cement plant customer is planning to add equipment that will require new electrical cables for power, which will be supported by existing towers.

Kiln Support Saddle

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.

Dome

Dome Withdrawal Conversion

ZAP was contracted to modify an existing dome withdrawal system and convert the reclaim system from a mechanical auger to an aerated floor.

Cement & Slag Import Terminal

ZAP provided preliminary engineering and design for a cement and granulated blast furnace slag import and distribution terminal.

Pneumatic Conveying Design

ZAP provided engineering and detailed design for a pneumatic conveying system upgrade and conveying line reroute.
