Harborlite Aegean in Turkey, a subsidiary of Imerys, now processes different types of perlite for the juice industry with an impact crusher of type PB 0806 from BHSSonthofen – the first time for the machine to be used for this purpose. Performance minerals are key to many different industries, from plastics and paint production to batteries and filtration purposes. Imerys, a world leader for mineral-based specialties for industrial use, is an expert in producing a wide variety of performance materials.
At the former Pier 55 along the Hudson River in New York, 132 precast tulip elements, mounted on 267 concrete piles, form a 2.4 acre artificial island. They are the new eye-catchers of the waterfront. For the ambitious project, precast producer and supplier of the concrete flowers Fort Miller Co. relied on the proven mixing technology from BHS-Sonthofen. Two BHS twin-shaft batch mixers of type DKXS 3,00 ensured concete of the highest quality.
What is to be done when there is no empirical data for the production conditions of using a mixer in advance? And what to do furthermore if the construction site of the mixer is difficult to access? These were the initial conditions that BHS-Sonthofen had to contend with as part of the ARGE ETS Konrad mine project in Salzgitter-Bleckenstedt/Germany. It had to design a BHS twin-shaft batch mixer and deliver a custom-designed mixing plant.
Femern A/S awarded the Tunnel Portals and Ramps, Tunnel South and Tunnel North Contracts to Femern Link Contractors (FLC) in 2016. SBM Mineral Processing GmbH is pleased to announce that following commencement of the project, Femern Link Contractors (FLC) has subsequently awarded the exclusive supply of concrete mixing plants to SBM Mineral Processing GmbH, who are proud to be a part of the world’s longest immersed tunnel and the longest tunnel for both road and rail traffic.
Despite Covid-19 safety protocols, work continues on schedule at one of the highest volume precast, prestressed concrete yards in North America: the Dragados-Flatiron Joint Venture (DFJV) Pre-Cast Facility in Hanford, California. Hanford Pre-Cast Facility crews are on a tight schedule to complete the 40-acre major infrastructure project by February 2022. Within a total of four years, the contractors are fabricating nearly 2,400 California Wide Flange (CWF) girders, 90 tub girders and 12,000-plus deck panels. In order to achieve this, DFJV built a batch plant for the production of self-consolidating type mixes, combining a Vince Hagan HT Haganator with a BHS-Sonthofen twin-shaft mixer, the latter assuring short, but very robust cycles to yield high-flow concretes exhibiting 20-in. spreads with zero aggregate segregation.
