Their challenge

At one of this client’s power generation plants, limestone used for plant processes was sitting exposed to the weather, and during colder months, the material would freeze and create a bottleneck in their process. The company brought in Salas O’Brien to design a solution that would allow their systems to operate uninterrupted throughout cold weather season.

Our solution

Our team solved the problem by designing a new emergency reclaim system. Our work included multi-discipline design, equipment selection, construction cost estimation, and bid phase services including construction administration. The system consisted of a push wall, Stamler Feeder/Breaker, feed conveyor, belt magnet, and chute work to regulate the limestone handling.
