Conveying System, AGET Heracles Volos Plant

Conveying System, AGET Heracles Volos Plant

The Project

Conveyor bridges made of steel construction, for the transport of cement production raw materials in the AGET Heracles plant, of the Lafarge Group, in Volos. They have spans in the order of 20 to 30 meters, they are simply supported and lie on A-shaped steel pylons. Their foundations are made of reinforced concrete bases. Special attention is given to deformations and vibrations during operation, as well as resistance to earthquakes and wind loads.

 

For this purpose, the capacity design method for the links is implemented, i. E. it is avoided that the connection is the weak point. For this a careful detailing and oversizing of the connections is made. The transport system also includes nodes and terminals, hoppers, elevators and other transport arrangements. Special attention is given to the cover of conveyor belts, to protect the transported material and at the same time the environment from dust.
