For almost 30 years Alimak Hek has been helping the cement industry to become safer, more productive and more profitable. No other supplier can offer better engineering resources and from the early stages of plant design to equipment supply and commissioning, Alimak Hek offer one single local source for everything it takes to achieve the best vertical access solution.
The environment at a cement plant puts enormous strain on all equipment at the site. An elevator needs to withstand the influence of dust, humidity and heat just to mention a few of the challenges. Operating without an elevator shaft, the Alimak Hek solution eliminate any risk of dust concentration and the rugged rack and pinion design eliminate the frequent traction problems of conventional elevators and give a long operating lifetime.
As a matter of fact, the Alimak Hek rack and pinion elevator is often installed on the outside structures and can easily be adjusted to support adjustments and expansion of the cement plant.
Alimak Hek also supports in the construction of cement plants with temporary vertical access solutions.
