The supply and assembly of dipping tubes to Lafarge Group in Africa


A project for the supply and assembly of dipping tubes for the LAFARGE Group (Circle Cement) cement plant in Zimbabwe has been successfully completed.

In response to the wear and service lifetime problems of the dipping tubes, LAFARGE chose Estanda to present a new improvement project for this product.

The project was aimed at the offset stage 3 and 4 of the preheater cyclone with a diameter of 2.1m, incorporating dipping tubes with a new design with refractory steels resistant to temperature (Tª) and abrasion.

Since this assembly in March 2015 using Estanda dipping tubes, performance levels have been optimized and the running process is precise.
