FB KETTEN

Overhauling a plate conveyor

1 Introduction

FB Ketten has realized a customized and low-cost solution for the replacement of a more than 50-year-old Beumer plate conveyor at Juracime, a cement producer in Switzerland. Juracime, the second biggest cement producer in Switzerland, was founded in Aarau in1882 by Rudolf Friedrich Zurlinden. Today, the company produces more than 1 million tonnes of cement per year in two plants in Switzerland. The cement factory in Cornaux was established in 1964 and produces high-quality cement, mainly used for structural and civil engineering.
