Longitudinal Blending Bed
Discover the potential of storage solutions: With the Longitudinal Blending Bed, material can be stored in one pile and reclaimed from the other pile.
The Longitudinal Blending Bed is your storage and homogenization solution for:
Mixtures of limestone and clay/marl
and mixtures of coal
One of the main advantages of our Polysius Longitudinal Blending Bed is its ability to handle large quantities of raw materials. It consists of at least two in-line stockpiles that are arranged in a longitudinal configuration. The Polysius Longitudinal Blending Bed typically includes two main machines: a belt stacker and a bridge reclaimer. These machines operate independently from each, which allows for a high degree of flexibility in the blending process.
The Polysius Longitudinal Blending Bed is designed to process large quantities of raw materials, and as such, it typically has high stacking and reclaiming capacities.
The belt stacker, for example, can stack up to 2500 t/h of raw material. This enables efficient and quick stacking of raw materials in preparation for blending. In our Longitudinal Blending Bed, we store the material according to the CHEVRON stacking method.
Similarly, the bridge reclaimer has a reclaiming capacity of up to 1200 t/h. Due to the huge rake all layers will be reclaimed simultaneously which ensures a good blending of the raw materials. The high stacking and reclaiming capacities of our Polysius Longitudinal Blending Bed enable a high throughput of raw materials, resulting in increased production efficiency and reduced labor costs.
The exact capacities will of course depend on the specific configuration of the longitudinal blending bed, including the size and type of raw materials and the specific requirements of the cement plant.
Advantages at a glance
Advantages of the Longitudinal Blending Bed compared to the Circular Blending Bed:
The blending bed is extendable
Higher flexibility in the chemical fluctuations during stacking of one pile. The complete pile only must be on set point
There are nearly no chemical fluctuations of the reclaimed material in the full cut section of the pile
