Problem Solved for Caribbean Cement

03/02/2017  |  Kingston, Jamaica, Summer 2015
Case history
Caribbean Cement is Jamaica’s principal cement producer. For their storage and ship loading operations in Kingston harbour, they desperately needed to replace their old screw conveyors to cut down vessel loading time from the current 8-9 days. Following a thorough analysis of the challenging conditions in the company’s rather dated plant, WAM Latin offered a solution that would not only dramatically increase the performance of the installation but also take environmental and maintenance aspects into account.

Ultimately, WAM Latin’s solution mainly consisted in the supply of heavy-duty CEMA screw conveyors manufactured by WAM Texas. Compared to the old units, the throughput rate was now twice as much, which brought down ship loading time to less than two days – a company record.

The screws have been running perfectly ever since to the customer’s total satisfaction.
