Bruks Siwertell Wins Order for Capitol Aggregates Plant

Bruks Siwertell secured an order for a comprehensive conveyor system package from construction firm Borton LC as part of a plant modification project at Capitol Aggregates’ cement manufacturing facility in Texas. 

The three new belt-type conveyor systems will deliver reliable, high-capacity material transfers and are specifically designed to withstand the extremely abrasive properties of clinker.

“This new order continues our recent run of cement industry contracts,” said Derek Tatum, manager business development, conveyor technology, Bruks Siwertell. “We have a worldwide reputation for handling both cement and clinker and are currently helping a number of operators meet a rise in demand.” 

The three new conveyor systems (C-810, C-940 and C-975) will modify the site’s existing material transport system and the addition of a new storage silo. All three conveyors will be at standard widths of 36 in. 

The C-810 conveyor will be 486 ft. in length and will transfer clinker to a bucket elevator at a rated capacity of 150 tph. The 275-ft.-long C-940 conveyor will have a rated capacity of 200 tph and will transfer clinker to the silo reclaim, while the final C-975 conveyor will be 131-ft.-long and connect to an existing conveyor. It will also have a rated capacity of 200 tph. 

“Clinker is very abrasive, and our conveying technology is specially designed to be robust enough to not only withstand this, but also tolerate the high temperatures that it will be conveyed at,” added Tatum. “We have a wide range of different conveying technologies, and this well-proven traditional idler-belt system will deliver reliable, high-capacity performance in these demanding environments. They are also very cost-competitive, enabling us to meet Borton’s budget.”

The conveyors are being fabricated in Mexico and will be delivered to the operator later this year.
