Grit conditioning in hot Iran
SPANGLER – the Plus of Perspective.
Glass is one of the most adaptable materials of today. There are innumerable fields of application from sheet glass to glasses and hotplate. To produce sheet glass quartz sand is mixed with used glass. Thereby extreme attention must be paid to the purity of the grit to guarantee the quality and colouring of the end product.
Automated grit conditioning
For this SPANGLER automated a grit conditioning plant in Iran for mineral processing specialist AKW Apparate + Verfahren GmbH. The mined sand is freed from impurities in various working steps. SPANGLER planned and manufactured eight control cabinets for the load current distribution and nine control cabinets for the control of the motor outputs. For the control the plant is equipped with a PLC with decentralised periphery and can be operated via a touch panel by the operating personnel.
Challenge load current distribution
The distribution of the energy to the aggregates turned out to be especially difficult. To manage the power of 1.700kW a specialized energy distribution system is used. This busbar system provides the necessary capacities to be able to professionally distribute energy parameters of that class. For this project SPANGLER installed approximately seven tonnes of control technology in total, of which 820kg alone for copper of the busbar.
