Beumer Group commissions Germany‘s highest bucket elevator

Beumer Group has successfully delivered, installed and commissioned the highest bucket elevator in Germany at HeidelbergCement AG in Schelklingen near Ulm. The order is part of a project by thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, with the objective to extensively modernise the cement plant and comply with the new limit values for pollutant emissions.

As part of the thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions project, a new preheater tower was built at HeidelbergCement’s Schelklingen site near Ulm, where a Beumer Group bucket elevator is used to feed raw meal to the kiln. This high-capacity belt bucket elevator has a centre distance of 131.8 m and, with a bucket width of 800 mm, achieves an output of 400 t/h. The installed steel cord belt transfers tractive forces of up to 200 t.

HeidelbergCement AG and the cement plant place great value on noise and dust protection. Beumer Group therefore determined the use of a high-capacity belt bucket elevator was necessary, which is characterized by extremely smooth running and reliable operation.
