Commodity: Fertiliser; Contract Type: Design Review & Recommendations
DemcoTECH Engineering’s modifications and upgrade to Steinweg Bridge’s storage and distribution facility in Durban, South Africa, comprised a full design review and plant assessment study. Based upon these recommendations, DemcoTECH completed the supervision and implementation of these upgrades . The facility comprises a warehouse, truck offloading system and conveyors stacking fertiliser onto a covered stockpile using an elevated tripper. The upgrade included new ceramic-lined pulleys, reclaim gates and chutes, spillage improvements and crusher refurbishment. In addition, due to the corrosiveness of the fertiliser, a complete corrosion protection refurbishment was also included.
