Fully Automated Cement Horizontal Storage (FACHS)
The Fully Automated Cement Horizontal Storage (FACHS) has been conceived with the intention of storing large amount of cement on horizontal warehouses. This innovative system allows to use existing warehouses and enclosures on ports and cement plants, avoiding the expensive construction of either vertical concrete or steel silos. The operation of the FACHS, from the stacking of cement up to the reclaiming and dispatching of the product is completely automatic, requiring a minimum of personnel to operate the facility. All the equipment employed for the operation of the FACHS is Taylor-Made and can be easily adapted to any specific site condition. The dimensions and capacity of all the main FACHS’ components depend on the available space, dimensions of the existing building, the required amount of product to be stored, and the required dispatch capacity.
