Ship unloader and convey unit for MI Cement - Bangladesh

For MI Cement Factory LTD, Bangladesh we supplied a second ship unloader and convey unit.

The ship unloader and convey unit are designed to handle fly ash and are built to last in the high ambient, humid and dusty environment. Both units were successfully installed and commissioned.

The ship unloader is stationary and placed on a jetty at the riverfront. The unloader has a 3-kettle system with 1 filter receiver and 2 transfer kettles, ensuring a near continuous discharge process. The ship unloader unloads typical Bangladeshi river ships and conveys the fly ash to a silo.

The pneumatic convey unit is placed underneath a silo within the silo footprint and takes up a minimal amount of space. The convey unit receives product directly from the silo. The convey unit has a 2-kettle system for efficient, near continuous discharge. Each kettle has its own vent filter.
