Pre-heater towers, calciners, raw material mills/presses, blending silos, raw material transport equipment, kiln equipment, duct work, coal mill, coolers, as well as environmental equipment comprise our vast project reference list. We’ve worked for all of the lime and cement process OEM’s. We’ve successfully completed lime & cement projects throughout the USA.
