36 CEMENT AMERICAS • Spring 2018 • www.cementamericas.com PRODUCTS Stand-Alone Dust Collector A new stand-alone dust collector from Flexicon removes airborne dust from upstream processes, and discharges it into containers posi- tioned below the collection hopper, protecting operators and improv- ing plant hygiene, while eliminating material waste. The housing is equipped with a 6-in. (15-mm) diameter side inlet port, dual filter cartridges, a 2-hp (1.5- kW) fan motor, a 2.5 cu. ft. (70 liter) collection hopper with flanged slide gate valve and automated controls. Any upstream process that gener- ates dust can be vented to the sys- tem through hard piping or a flexible connection, drawing dust onto dual filter cartridges. At timed intervals, an automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system releases short blasts of compressed plant air inside the filters, causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper. Because the filters are blast- ed alternately at timed intervals with adjustable force, operation of the dust collection system is both contin- uous and efficient. An indicator light on the control pan- el notifies the operator when the receiving hopper is full. The slide gate at the hopper outlet can be opened manually, allowing collected material to gravity discharge into a container. The system's stainless steel housing and support structure, together with NEMA 4X water-resistant controls and wash-down-duty fan motor, allow rapid cleaning or sanitizing of the entire unit between product runs.

For example, the company makes large carbon steel mounting frames for roller mills; heat resistant steel preheater and kiln parts; and chrome-moly steel impact resistant parts for hammermills. The company also offers parts for quarries and raw grinding. • Grinding Mills. Columbia Steel product engineers help cement plants worldwide to reduce wear a n d s p e e d m a i n t e n a n c e w i t h improved designs and alloys. The company has a full line of cement plant parts for rod, ball and semi-au- togenous grinding mills. • Vertical Roller Mills. The compa- ny manufactures a large number of wear parts for popular Loesche, Full- er, UBE, and Polysius roller mills. • Preheater and Kiln Parts. Reduce cost per ton with thimbles, inlet trays, nose ring segments, tail ring segments and inlet castings. • Conveyor Drag Chain. Columbia Steel matches alloys to the in-ser- vice temperature reached by the customer 's conveyor chain, and make recommendations for appro- priate hardfacing. • Clinker Drag Chain. All-cast chain eliminates welded joints, with drive sprocket guides designed to keep the chain centered. • Clinker Breaker Parts. Columbia Steel customers know that the right alloys make all the difference in wear life for grizzly bars and hammers. • Elevator Buckets. H39 alloy steel makes Columbia Steel buckets supe- rior to cast iron buckets in strength, hardness and toughness. • Alloys for Heat and Wear. By bal- ancing wear resistance with fracture resistance, castings can reduce oper- ating and replacement part costs. • Apron Feeder Pans. These pans won't fail during extreme service conditions, thanks to the high tough- ness of manganese steel Columbia Steel, www.columbiasteel.com
