Problem definition

Rich in tradition, limestone has been used as building material for 375 million years; however, today this material requires accurately-fit processing for many different use cases in the fields of pavement, roads, and buildings. Therefore, OAS was entrusted with planning and building of a new treatment plant for limestone sand.

"To become even more diversified and offer our customers an even more individual range of products, we are in need of a purposeful extension of our production line," states Dr. Burkhard Ebeling, Head of Distribution at Stricker & Weiken. Therefore, the task of the new line is not only to crush and despatch the broken limestone from the site, but also to mix it accurately with other materials and fill it in bags for the end customer should the customer request this.

Solution

Within the scope of project engineering, OAS could provide its entire know-how in the fields of weighing technology, plant engineering, and automation. As an all-embracing service provider in project engineering, OAS delivered the whole range of performance, starting with the planning, through the projecting, and ending up with assembly and commissioning of the treatment line.

The line includes two production areas. The first area is for transportation as well as for crushing and assigning to different size fractions of the raw material mined-out. In the second area of the line, the size fractions of the limestone sand are either directly loaded or, upon request, mixed on site with other materials to become the final end product and filled into bags. The line is controlled and monitored from the control station and by means of our process control system pronto.

The customer's benefits

  • crushing and despatch of the raw material from the site
  • direct shipment or customised further processing to become the final end product – all in one line
  • weighing technology, plant engineering, and automation from a single source
  • installation of the line during running production
