Dip tubes for LAFARGE-HOLCIM cement group (Africa)


Estanda has supplied the cement plant of the LAFARGE-HOLCIM group in Nigeria (Africa) with new designs for more efficient dip tubes.

The project for the supplying of the dip tubes and supervision during the assembly phase (October 2015) included an initial stage of total component redesign, modifying dimensions and materials used by the client to adapt to the technical recommendations provided by ESTANDA.

The proposed solution will prevent the problems of wear and low durability that the dip tubes had been suffering. Once again LAFARGE has chosen Estanda as a trusted supplier with the aim of repeating the successful projects developed in other cement plants of the group.

The project was developed on stages 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the preheater cyclones with the installation of refractory steels resistant to high temperatures and abrasion.
